November 2011 Update — Big News!

We have a lot to update everyone on:

As we have already announced, Part 2 of The Unexpected Circumnavigation is completed. It will officially go on sale on November 11th, 2001 at However, we are accepting pre-orders at a discounted rate. We have the book in hand and ready to ship.

We are working on a workbook entitled  Recipe for Success: What My Cruising Cruising Will Cost Me that will be premiered at Trawlerfest next weekend. It will be released for sale shortly thereafter.

We are teaching two classes at Trawlerfest, both on Saturday, November 12th, both open to the public:

“Recipe for Success: What My Cruising Will Cost Me”
A workbook detailing all the costs involved with blanks so people can fill in numbers as appropriate for them. As a class, we will go through the workbook and talk about what numbers are realistic to put in those blanks.

San Diego to Panama:
An overview of places to stop along the way, from marinas to anchorages, as well as some sights and attractions onshore. While going south is easy, coming back north can be hard! Some pointers on strategies to use coming back up, as well as information on Mexico, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Panama check in, rules and operating procedures.

And finally, the most exciting news of all! Christi is 4 1/2 months pregnant with a baby boy, due March 12th.


Speaking at Trawlerfest and Seven Seas Gam!

Sunday, October 2 we will be doing a presentation on our circumnavigation for the Seven Seas Cruising Association’s San Diego Gam. The Gam is an all day event featuring four seminars and open to the general public. For more information, check out the Seven Seas Cruising Association’s site.

On Saturday, November 12 we will be giving two back to back seminars at Trawlerfest San Diego. The first is at 8:30 am: “Recipe for Success: What My Cruising Will Cost Me” where we explain to people how to calculate what cruising will cost them (we are even writing a special workbook for this!). The second is at 10:00 am: “San Diego to Panama.” Trawlerfest is a three day event featuring 18 informative seminars, a boat show, and is also open to the public. For more information, check out their website. 

As far as Book 2 of the Unexpected Circumnavigation series goes, Christi sent it to the editor several weeks ago. The editor is a little over halfway done with it now. We’ve been saying soon for the last year, but the light is at the end of the tunnel is getting brighter.
