Sunscreen (for Face) Round-Up

Every May, Sephora puts together a Sun Safety Kit that contains an array of sunscreen products. I grabbed one this year and road tested each to see if I like any better than my current favorite – bioelements spf 50 FaceScreen. bioelements | spf 50 FaceScreen | spf 50 I’ve been wearing this (almost) daily…

At Last! We Have a Departure Date.

It’s official, in 170 days, we’ll point Felicità south, bound for Cabo San Lucas. We’ve opted to join the Baja Haha, an annual rally where cruisers headed for Mexico all depart San Diego on the same day. It’s a 750 nautical mile trip from SD to Cabo and will take us 12 days. Tim was…

S1: Episode 15 | Sailing Down the Baja

Catch this second part of our trip down the Baja Peninsula with our friend, Onno, on his Hardin 45. She’s a proper pirate ship to be sure. We had a mix of all kinds of weather and found lots of creative ways to pass the time…

S1: Episode 14 | San Diego to Mexico

In this episode, Tim and I jump aboard Lost Pearl, our friend Onno’s Hardin 45. This is part one of a two-part trip from San Diego to Cabo San Lucas. Onno, was our neighbor for a year in the mooring field, and we became fast friends. We miss him terribly, but knowing we may cross…

What Marks the Starting Line?

If you follow us on Instagram (@gntsailing), you know that our lease in San Diego ended and we’ve officially moved our home base to our house in Wisconsin. Tim was here helping get things settled, but had to return to California/the West as he’s still working through September (please note that he practically skipped into…

The conversion to lithium was our first bit refit project. See it in action here on YouTube and see our project budget below. Some people may find it kind of funny that we hired a boat mechanic to redo our electrical system given the fact that Tim is an electrical engineer. But, we did this…

S1: Episode 9 | Shakedown Sail Lessons Learned

The Challenge of Competing Priorities

There is a real tension between the priorities we’re juggling to wind down our land lives and getting ready to head to sea. Some days it’s hard to know what to focus on and the list is long: Major boat repairs (e.g., getting the water maker working, new bottom paint and thru hulls) Major boat…

S1: Episode 8 | Careful What You Wish For!

We’ve been away from YouTube for many months. “Why,” you ask? Mostly because I just could not bring myself to edit the video that is so filled with my sweet, beloved pup, Ocho. So, I let time do its thing on my grief and a year later, I’m ready to carry on. In Season 1…

Coming Out of the Fog

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…
