Amazing start of a great journey


Hans and I joined the first part of Brian’s trip from L.A to Puerto Vallarta. Brain is an experienced sailor with immense love for the sea and sailing. We appreciate a lot the big importance he gives to safety onboard. The boat is well equipped with everything one can need for a long journey. Thanks for giving us the opportunity to learn from you and join this incredible adventure. We wish you safe travels and endless adventures to come!

Viva La Mexico!


Just sailed down from Marina Del Rey in California to Puerto Vallarta in Mexico with Captain Brian. It was an incredible journey. Brian is a very experienced sailor, savvy with everyday boat maintenance from living aboard and very keen on efficient, practical sailing from years of racing. He’s very focused on the safety of the crew as well. Bring a bag of M&Ms and you’ll instantly win him over.

Crossing the Sea of Cortez


Brian was my captain for my first ocean crossing, from La Paz to Puerto Vallarta. He taught me about the boat, had me aid in night watches and even begin to help adjusting sails. I had a ton of fun with Brian and we anchored of an island and bay to hike and explore the local areas. He was a great captain and it was a pleasure to be on his boat. Thank you again for the adventure of a lifetime!
