I am a stay-at-home mom to four lovely and lively children – ages 10, 8 and 5 year-old twins.
My husband and I live in Ottawa, Canada. We have rented our house, bought a catamaran, and plan live aboard and home school for 5 or 6 years, possibly to circumnavigate.
This blog documents my personal growth from complete sailing newbie, to capable cruiser. I want to have enough medical, and blue water experience and training to charter a boat, and sail it on my own. My husband will be sailing with our family, but I want to have skills to be in equal partnership, not just because I’m a nice wife, but because I value safety and adventure.
I will also be describing my experience with home schooling. We will be leaving the public school system, and we’ve never home schooled before.
The best way to reach me is to leave me a comment, and I will contact you by email.
About our boat
We recently bought SV Aphrodite, a St Francis 50 catamaran. A review of our boat appears in the May/June 2005 issue of Multihulls magazine.
