SailFarLiveFree.com has been riding the tradewinds of the Internet to become our treasure chest of sailing inspiration.  We write about all things sailing that motivate and educate us to Sail Far and Live Free. 

This website started in 2007 as a blog that urged readers to "Follow our family's adventures as we restore an old sailboat (2007), learn to sail (2008) and expand our cruising horizons each day! So far, we've spent summers and 1000's of nautical miles cruising the Great Lakes, including most of Lake Michigan and Lake Huron's fabeled North Channel (2010). Someday we'll cast off the docklines more permanently. Sail far and live free!"  You can read our very first blog post here. 

We're a family intent on making our cruising dreams come true.  Our first sailboat was a Helms 25 that we lovingly restored and reluctantly sold. Next was our beloved s/v Island Bound, an Irwin 28. Our Catalina 34 (s/v Bearly-A-Wake) helped us wander the Great Lakes and sometimes lives on the eastern shore of Lake Michigan.  Currently, we're honing our skills and building a community while our girls launch into life.
Meet the crew at Sail Far Live Free: Kevin (Captain), Erin (Admiral),
Hannah (First Mate), Isabel (Deck Hand), Soleil (Boatswain)

You can read more about us in the interview we did for Newly Salted.
