Sunrise -2

Hi everyone. I have endless updates for you about the current status of S/V Desiree, my number one sailor / tactician Luke Yeates…my mechanic / plumber / electrician / wizard father…my seamstress / logistics manager mother and how we have all been working together.

Trying to sail out of here on Easter. That’s in one week. It’s okay, I never remember when Easter is either.

I’ve been busy. My entire life has shifted.

I am a boat slave. Tomboy. Dirty finger-nailed and and borderline dreadlocked. Sometimes I want to wear pink to make up for it. I don’t even like pink. Then I realize I just pondered wearing pink so I open a Budweiser to make up for the pink thoughts. I drink it fast.

If you wouldn’t mind exercising a “wee bit” of patience I will follow up this post with details on boat prep, our itinerary, and of course some relationship dynamics because that’s my favorite.

But today is Sunday and it’s beautiful out and I have a very long list of projects to complete. I have something else for you instead.

A podcast by great guy named Teddy who interviews young sailors all around the world to find out how exactly they can afford to sail away. A lot of people wonder this about me and if they don’t ask are quick to assume what might not be true. We touch base on how it all began… how I saved, budgeted, and created flexibility in my life to be able to do these weird kinds of things.

Grab a cup of joe… or two or three. Have a great day.

SAIL-LOOT // HOW DID YOU AFFORD IT ?

P.S. Desiree is in the water. She floats (with minor leaks). She sails (exceptionally). She shines (after 3 days of buffing and waxing) She self-steers (Penny, the sexy Hyrovane) She purrs (after countless hours of bleeding air from fuel lines)

  1. As much as I hate to be a person who answers a question with a question, whenever I’m asked that question. I ask them how can they cannot afford it? You only die once…

  2. I say get 5 credit cards, max them out and worry about how you’re going to pay for it when you’re old and are ready to settle down and work a typical 9-5 job.

  3. listened to the WHOLE Sail Loot interview. It was so long but I couldn’t stop listening – so fascinating. You have a great story and you are an articulate, entertaining and intelligent story teller!
