The following pages chronicle the journey of the sailing vessel Pelagic and her crew. We are a family of 5; Michael, Amy, Zander, Porter and Anakena, taking our 42' Hallberg Rassy as far as we can comfortably go in three years. We left Oregon in September 2014, participated in the 2014 Baja Haha, continued on through the Panama Canal, into the Caribbean, up the coast of the US to Maritime Canada and from there crossed the Atlantic. After an arrival in Ireland we toured Scotland, then sailed down to France, Portugal and on to Morocco. In January of 2016 we slowed down considerably and enrolled the kids in a local Spanish school in Sanlucar de Guadiana for a few months. In the spring of 2016 we crossed the Atlantic towards the Caribbean. We are now in the Pacific, officially on our way home, albeit via a very circuitous path. We are currently in French Polynesia and looking at weather windows to Hawaii before finally making landfall back in the Pacific Northwest.

Currently our exact location is not available. Our spot coverage will pick us back up in Hawaii towards the end of May, 2017.

Zanders Blog on swimming with Sea Lions

Today we went snorkeling with Sea Lions at Los Islotes in the Sea of Cortez. It was the best snorkeling I have ever done, and we have done some pretty good snorkeling lately. 
As soon as we jumped in the water the Sea Lions swam over and started playing with us.  They would bite on our fins and playfully bump in to us.  The males don’t play at all.  swim by and look really intimidating.  I was swimming over to a Sea Lion when it started barking at me.  As I was swimming away a male bumped in to me as if to say “I’m the boss”!  After that I stayed a little further away.  Aside from that, it was the best swim ever!   
diving for dinner (not for Sea Lions)
