finally my darlinghttp://www.finallymydarling.com
Darling is our surname and this is a forty yearlong dream that has finally been realized. Hence our boat got its name 'finally my darling!' Follow this Australian/Canadian family of four adults (dad, mum, daughter, son-in-law) as they cruise the Mediterranean for two summers (2013/2014) with plans to head across the Atlantic to the Caribbean late 2014 and eventually onwards to the South Pacific and the registered home port of Brisbane, Australia. Our dream for this blog is more of a photographic journal of the beauty that surrounds us on this blessed journey, rather than a technical blog focusing on the ins and outs of day-to-day living on a yacht. We are new sailors, so join us on this voyage of discovery and hard lessons. Proving that any dream is possible if you really set your mind to it!
This is a story about a man, a woman and a dog living their dream aboard a 43-foot sailboat. To get here, we sold everything we owned and left the US for New Zealand with the sole purpose of purchasing a yacht in May of 2001. What was supposed to be a six-month trip turned into a six-year stay and our eventual ownership of Cambria - a Westerly Ocean 43. In 2007, after years exploring the Hauraki Gulf and Bay of Islands as well as making an off-shore passage to Tonga, it was time to go home and we returned to the US. Our initial plan was to leave San Diego Harbor and turn left, but we decided we needed to experience what we'd been told were the best cruising grounds in the world ... the Pacific Northwest. After spending four months harbor-hopping up the coasts of California, Oregon, and Washington in 2008, we're now based up north where we're in our fifth season of exploring every nook and cranny from Puget Sound to Glacier Bay.

Siochana Sailing Bloghttp://siochana.us
My dream is to live on a sailboat and have the freedoms to go where and when I want. The blog name, Síochána, means “Peace” in Irish. I intend to name the cruising boat Síochána and feel it’s fitting because it’s a very accurate description of the lifestyle I want to live and because of my Irish heritage.
