We Bought A Boat!


From Small Beginnings to Circumnavigation

Hello! We're Matt and Tammy, a 30-something couple from Canada who have begun the journey from learning to sail our small dinghy to eventual circumnavigation in something a bit bigger. It's going to be a lot of work, learning and fun and we'd like to share with you as we go.

Contrary to the name of this website we haven't actually bought a boat yet. For the moment we're making do with a great little 12' Kolibri sailing dinghy that was gifted to us by a very good friend. It has needed a bit of work including fiberglass, a paint job or two, new sails and so on but it's serving as an excellent learning craft for our future adventures.

Looking for more? There are updates to read on our blog, things to see in our photo album and some great resources in our sailing wiki.
