“We are the people they couldn’t figure out…. we are the people our parents warned us about.”
– Jimmy Buffett
We have been a boating family for years and always dreamed of a day where we could pack up a boat and head out for awhile, cruising. Many, many books were read, websites traveled, and dreams dreamt, until finally the day came where we decided it was time.
We found Thaleïa and immediately knew she was the one! We bought her in March of 2008 from a wonderful couple, Judy and John. We headed out on November 19, 2008 and motored/sailed down the Bay through the ICW and to the Bahamas. We returned home on May 9, 2009.
Since our return to dry land, we have spent a lot of time working on Thaleia, making repairs and upgrades. Simultaneously, we have continued working and watching the family grow. There are now two young scallywags who already both believe they are Captain of Thaleia. We hope they will develop the same love and passion for the water and sailing as we have.
Please note: S/V Thaleia is a privately owned, not-for-hire, schooner.
