SV Calla Lily Crew

Shelby and Mike both have boating in our blood. We finally took a sailing certification course in the Fall of 2019. Within 10 weeks, we had purchased a 47' 1990 Compass 47 sailboat with plans to fix it up and sail around the world. Finally, despite the efforts of one pandemic and the challenge of bringing an older boat to new life, we have sold most of our possessions (and given the rest to our three children) and taken to the sea in November 2021. We plan to spend the first year or so in the Sea of Cortez and then head West toward the Island Nations. We're stoked to share our journey with you! Thanks for reading :)
