If you found Chuck and Laura's Cruising Pages on the American Vega Assn. website, you found a lot of information about the trip and the aftermath. Since I'm retired now, I'll be putting a lot more on that site and possibly starting another. After all, there is more to the AVA than Chuck and Laura.
Like a lot of people, I suspect, on this forum, we dreamed about crossing the Pacific for twenty years or more. Gradually we turned that dream into reality and in the process we learned a tremendous amount about our boat, our selves, each other and what really matters in life. By sharing the mistakes we made, the solutions we found and the things we think we did right I hope to smooth the path for those who follow, encourage those who dream of one day sailing into the sunset and entertain those who have already been there.
The First Mate has a full time job ashore and I have a wireless internet connection on the boat so I'll be a frequent visitor here until we cast off to head South.
Malie ke kai,
