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.

March 21st by Porter

Hello again, so a few days ago it was my last day of school and this is going to sound weird, but I am really sad that there is no more school, sad face. Actually, I had two last days. We had the last day in school and the last day with the class on a field trip. First day we just had a normal last class day in school, but the last day of the wek we went to a farm and we got to milk a goat and I can check that off my bucket list. Really, I have always wanted to milk a cow but a goat is still very good. Next when all of us milked the goat they took us to a big pen full of goats and they took about 20 goats and it turns out that we were going on a walk! With the goats!! So that was cool and a truck came out to meet us with a picnic made of goat cheese and sponge bread. Then we went back to the bus.

Well that was a sad/good day.

Adios Porter
