This site/blog is where we are recording our adventures with our boat Sister Midnight.
She is a sailing boat designed by Robert Perry and is a Tashiba 40 model. The 40 is her length in feet.
We are back in Malaysia now, but on the Borneo Island part, in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah (Jan 2018). The original plan was to do some repairs, then sail north towards Japan, and across the North Pacific to Alaska or Vancouver/Seattle, before heading south again. However delays have made this too difficult, and rather than rush it, we are going to leave that trip until next year, when we really should be ready. So for the rest of this year we will meander around Borneo before heading North again in March next year.
After reaching Seattle, we will follow the sun south to Mexico, and then possibly down to Ecuador early in 2019. From there we head west in the South Pacific, exploring all the usual stops, Tahiti, Vanuatu, Solomons, etc etc, hoping to end up in New Zealand at some point later, then we will spend another year working our way back to Malaysia via Australia and Indonesia. From there we head back to the Atlantic, crossing the Indian ocean, either to the north and the Red Sea/Med route, pirates allowing, or more likely, via South Africa. From South africa, it will then be a quick hop over to Brazil, then up the coast to New York, then home.
Check our recent posts (over on the right) for any updates. We will both be putting up separate entries as we travel along.
