It was a coldish Sunday morning that we met Mike and Rebecca from ZERO TO CRUISING for breakfast at Fells point. They were tied to a sea wall on their way to the promised land- that is- they are headed south. Like their name points out they went from knowing nothing to (safely and successfully) traveling the watery road on their sweet 32' Cat. They seem pretty set up to us, and there is no way to even compare the size of their vessel to a 32' monohull! It was pretty inspiring meeting some real people who were 'do in it'. Made this whole dream of sailing away seem totally possible, and lit the fire under our arses to work even harder on both these boats.

Hi guys.

It was great meeting you two and finally put some faces to the blog. :)

We really do hope that you get things sorted to head south next year because we'd love to meet up with you again.

Keep in touch.

Mike and Rebecca

It is doable! Done it twice! Scary as can be, but you can always sail North again (did that too...).

Thanks Mike, we will, and we shall.

Jomamma, you just get it don't you?

H.- you could have skipped the scary as can be part!!! As can be even!

NO it's only scary "cutting those docklines". It's easy once you get out of your rut, oops, I mean slip. ;)

Thanks for clarifying that H! Looking at it that way I can't wait to get out of the rot, I mean rut, I mean slip...
