The daily doings aboard the Romany Star

This will be our version of a blog, with nearly daily updates when we are underway.
When we are hanging out somewhere entries will be less regular.

April 10, 2019 - Life changes

Aside from hanging around in Hawaii, and a short trip to visit the boat in New Zealand last month there hasn't been much going on. Things should liven up in November when I return to the boat in Whangarei.

For now check out the old adventures by selecting an earlier log period (up next to the map).


April 10, 2019 - Life changes

I can't begin to describe the extent of the changes that have come to my life in the past six months. Most significantly, Bonnie left at Christmas and the loss has left me dealing with the decision to continue sailing alone, or to look for a new sailing partner. I am in no shape to take on the repairs of the boat, or to go off sailing this season. I am in Hawaii, living with friends, orienting myself to what may come next. I hope to return to the boat in November or December to accomplish the repairs, and sail from New Zealand in May or June of 2020.
