How’s this sound – a great week of sailing, some heavy weather (45 mph winds), fast speeds (hit over 9.5 knots) in addition to seeing some incredible sights – white beaches, friendly turtles, dark orange sunsets, speedy pelicans and deep blue waters.

Since our last update video, we’ve been busy doing our Britican Experiences were we take paying guests for a week-long experiential adventure.
