Route

On September 30, 2014, we set sail from Seattle and hung the “big left turn” south, aiming to sail from Seattle to Australia in a single year. Read more about our initial plans to sail to Australia.

We quickly learned that cruising (life in general, really) is all about being flexible and modifying plans as needed to keep our happiness meter pegged in the desirable direction. We decided to alter our “plan” in favor of spending more time in Central America before continuing on (read more on that decision here). That meant making alternative plans during the rainy season and needing to earn more money. We ultimately left The Red Thread in Costa Rica and returned to Seattle, where were fortunate to secure 6-month employment contracts. We returned to our beloved boat in January 2016 to continue our voyage.

Check out our route track and current location on DeLorme Mapshare. As of November 22, 2016, we made landfall in Coff’s Harbour, New South Wales, Australia!

    • Hi Ellen! Indeed…we are a buzz with the best kind of nerves! We have not totally ruled NZ out (and we would LOVE to cruise there, too), but we suspect we will have the best job prospects in Oz. Short list of your favorite spots?

    • It really is the COOLEST thing ever! The little device works off the Iridium satellite network, so it can follow us ANYWHERE in the world! It also does two-way text messaging. Amazing! A great gadget to consider for any adventurers on land or sea 🙂 ~Jess
