VOYAGES Photo Album

We have had many tacks (and jibes) with Shanachie over the years... and so, here we used to include a small online photo album that chronicles a few of them. However, it seems after 11 years, our online photo album has disappeared! Thus, you will just have to take our word for it: sailing the South Pacific was just plain awesome! (We'll restore the photo album again one of these days... but for now, you'll just have to let your imagination run wild).


We do move around a bit, but nowadays, no matter where we are, we can always be reached via email, accessible with the easy form at this link: CONNECT! We’d love to hear from you any time!
