richmond yacht club & the auckland sailing community

Our crew would like to send our heart-felt gratitude to the Richmond Yacht Club in Auckland, New Zealand for hosting a Shipwreck Party in November to help raise Kiwi dollars for our replacement mast project.  More important than the funds is the friendship that is helping us continue on this difficult rebuild project.

Auckland is very special in our hearts for many reasons, but particularly because New Zealand is the magic spot in this world where we started a family, had our third child, and got married.  It is a place where we have forged many wonderful friendships and made life-long connections.  It is a fantastic city full of great minds and big passion for sailing.

Pulling into this world port feels like coming home for our family, and for this reason, we consider Auckland to be a true home port for us.

Thank you to all our kind friends in the sailing community for all of your support and friendship & best wishes for upcoming New Year.  We appreciate all of you and look forward to sailing home again someday to make more memories.


Many thanks to organizers, contributors and participants of this event - we wish we could have been there!
