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.

Just a few more throwbacks from earlier visits, scheduled post

Cape Verde

What's in your pocket?

Kids playing soccer in a centuries old castle in Portugal. We had the village to ourselves.

Chicken grilled over a volcanic heat vent in the Canary Islands.

Too rough for a swim, but a mid Atlantic dip of the feet off the swim platform.


Sanlucar de Guadiana, home for three months.

Porto, Portugal

We never tired of these guys in Gibraltar.
