welcome to our blog!

This blog tells the story of our 22-month sailing journey from Oakland, California, to Bristol, Rhode Island, aboard our beloved Bristol 32 sailboat, Ute. Please feel free to browse through the archives (partway down the sidebar to your left) to see pics and read stories of our adventures in North America and Central America . (Sorry the first 3 months of the trip are missing - they vanished somewhere in an internet cafe in Mexico - but all you're missing is CA, Baja and Western Mex).

If you're trying to track us down now that we're landlubbers, try us at uteatlarge at yahoo dot com. Thanks!

You two need to co-author a DIY book when you get back. You are so baddass..

Neat rat lines - and it is important to look out for reefs - moms worry a little. San Blas - baskets? I'll be back. Zippers and rat lines sounds like a song. Never did near the accordian - Hope you are having a very productive time getting all ready to sail again. Weather is beautiful here - 70's - sunny. hugs nmc

The rope is supposed to go through the inside hole! And they should be much less horizontal than how you have installed them.
