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 heading out into the Pacific, officially on our way home, albeit via a very circuitous path. We hope to visit the Galapagos, French Polynesia, and Hawaii before making landfall back in the Pacific Northwest.

Check out our trip to see where we are now (right hand margin). For some reason you will only be able to see our last location. To remedy that, once you click on the link, look in the upper left corner, pull down the Pacific 2017 header, change the history to 3 months and then update the map. I'm not sure why it won't save permanently.
