Blue Gryphon

It is now mid April, and it has been almost 4 months since my last blog post. The last time I wrote a blog, we had just bought our cute coastal cottage in Northport, Maine and at the same time, we had decided to start a new adventure on board an 83 foot catamaran named Read More

A lot has happened…

The last time I posted a blog, Jon and I had hauled Split Second out in Belfast, ME. That was the start of our vacation period which ended up being much longer than expected.  Due to the many events… During our vacation, the islands were hit with two devastating hurricanes, so as the crew, we Read More

We made it!

Before we started this charter season on Split Second, there was a small part of me (and maybe Jon too) that was wondering if we were in fact cut out for this industry.  After being told off  by the owners of the boat that we previously worked on, I was not 100% sure we were Read More

Oh, the places we’ll go!

Yesterday morning around 5am, we were underway to St. Maarten!  Let me tell you, Jon, Isaac and I have never been happier to sail into rough seas. We had been on the dock in Nanny Cay for about 2 weeks! Maintenance, maintenance and more maintenance needed to be done…and thankfully, Split Second has never been Read More
