Jamie and I have our first article in the December issue of 48 North – we’re so excited! This free sailing magazine is available from marine minded places in the Pacific Northwest, or in your mailbox by subscription.

The article isn’t available online (sorry!), but reflects on finding new traditions for the holidays as we embark on our cruising lives… bringing the familiar from home enough to keep grounded and appreciate the differences in how it’s celebrated here in Mexico.

We’ll be writing a monthly cruising column in the magazine, hoping to keep regular readers in the PNW from being too disappointed as we step into the very big shoes of our predecessor / mentor / dear friend, Diana Jessie. She penned “Practical Cruising” for 15 years while traveling the globe on her sailboat Nalu.

Jamie and I anticipate alternating in taking the lead on writing, but do a lot of collaboration on each article. There’s so much we want to share- we have a couple of years worth of ideas sketched out already. No kidding! January’s edition has reflections on the allure of boat gear, and some simple things that work for us.

  1. Wow! That is fantastic!
    Not available online? Ok, 48 North just got a new subscriber 🙂
    I look at it often and that is where we found our Ingrid that we bought.
    Looking forward to reading the first (and every) article.


  2. I’m excited to check out your article in 48 North. So you arrived in Mazatlan today for Christmas. We have 4-5 inches of snow on Bainbridge today and First Years is closed for today and Friday. More snow expected Saturday. I love living vicariously through your pictures. Have a wonderful and loving holiday.
    Nita, from First Years
