Coming Out of the Fog

June 15, 2021 in Uncategorized - No Comments

It’s been a minute and it’s been a long 14 months–for ALL of us.

Tim and I have been hibernating, gathering our nuts, getting vaccinated, and formulating a plan. We don’t know all the details yet, but we know for sure that our timeline is accelerating. We also know (big news!) we are going to go East through the Panama Canal– we have lots to see before we cross the Pacific.

If the pandemic has taught us one thing it’s that it makes no sense to wait too long to live the life we’ve been dreaming of and working for… We’ve accelerated our boat projects and are getting ourselves into a position to cast off the lines much sooner than originally planned. We have big plans and big dreams. We hope you’ll stick around for the adventure. Lots of real time updates on Instagram — @gntsailing . Hope to see you over there in addition to here!

From a YouTube Channel standpoint, I have every intention to begin editing again. I’ve been shooting a bunch of footage over the past year, but can only just now look at the July 2020 footage with Ocho in it without crying (too much). Watch for new videos later this summer.

We’re gearing up for the big adventure and so look forward to sharing it with you!

Love and light,
Gretchen

Our adventure with a broken windlass continues in this episode. This has been a saga. Holy smokes! 🔹LINK IN BIO 🔹#sailing #sailingcouple #catalina42mkii #maxwellwindlass #anchoring #sail #welovetosail #sailinglife
We spent our first nights on anchor of this season Bahía Salinas on Isla Carmen. This anchorage features an abandoned salt mine and existing hunting lodge. It was very cool to explore and nice to stretch our legs with our buddies on s/v Salt Whistle. 🔹 And, I got our Christmas lights up. 🎄#sailing #sailinglife #sailingcouple #bajacalifornia #sailmexico
In this episode, we experience our worst breakdown and it wasn’t pretty! 🔹 LINK IN BIO 🔹 Like 👍 Comment 💬 Subscribe 🔹 #yacht #yachting #bluewatersailing #offshore #oceanlife #offshoresailing #sailingadventure #gntsailing #boatlife #sailinglife #sailinginstagram #oceanlover #oceanlife #sailing #liveaboard #sail #catalina42 #mexico #pacificocean
We had a spectacular first sail from San Carlos to the Eastern side of Isla Carmen | Bahia Salinas. It took us 22 hours and we sailed all but four hours. And two of the motoring hours were motor sailing because we needed to make water. (We need the engine to power the high pressure pump.)🔹 We were greeted by a sea turtle as we came into the anchorage and our buddy boat, Salt Whistle, was here waiting to welcome us to the Baja. 🔹 We were treated to this cotton candy sky as we started our first morning on anchor. Here’s to season two!🔹 #sailing #sailingcouple #catalina42 #bajapeninsula #sailmexico
