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.

Why does anyone even bother wearing a watch in Mexico, by Porter

In Mexico every thing is late. The buses are late, the train is late even I am late (for school mostly).
I went in the Copper Canyon the bus there was late.
When I was on the bus the driver hit a baseball sized object, but it did not go through the window.
When we got there we got in a cab and drove to our hotel which was right around the corner.  It was funny, the driver only drove us about one block.
Then we got up at 4 in the morning and went to the train station, it took 9 hours to get to the canyon.
When we got there we went to a hotel it was so cold up there, can you believe that it was 40 degrees?
We stayed 3 nights and in the morning we went back to the boat it was nice.  Guess what?  The bus and train were late.
