One year ago today, Brian and I sailed out of New York Harbor before dawn, leaving the lights of the city we used to call home in our wake.

We did something that few people dare to do – we dropped off the grid and removed ourselves from the rat race. In this uncertain world, we decided to get out there and experience something beautiful, challenging, and new.

Reflecting on the year we’ve had, I am overwhelmed with gratitude.

Flipping through the photos that we’ve taken along the way, it’s amazing to see how far we’ve come. Please enjoy this photo collection of our first year out – 3,500 nautical miles of under our keel, from New York City to Grenada, West Indies.
