Moving Back With Mom & Dad – Flying Home to the U.S. – WITH A CAT!! (MJ Sailing – Ep 167)

It’s time to step foot in the U.S. for the first time in 2.5 years. And that also means moving in with my parents.
After having sailed Elements from Florida, through the Caribbean, up to the Azores, and then the Arctic Circle of Norway down to the UK…we left her behind in England, and now needed to take the next steps in our lives.
Flying out from our friend’s home in Twickenham, we head to London Heathrow to begin the long journey home…with our cat! She’ll be flying in cabin with us for this 24 hours of travel, so we’re very nervous on how it all could turn out.

Much love from Phoenix!

NEW Boat & NEW Partner – First Days After Our Sale! (MJ Sailing – Ep 166)

** Get behind the scenes footage of our upcoming catamaran build by becoming a Patron today! https://www.patreon.com/mjsailing **

We’ve just sold our aluminum cruiser, and now it’s time to change things up by getting on a new boat with a new sailing partner.

After we become essentially homeless after selling our boat, we still have one week left in England before our flights back to the US. We use that time to visit a few friends along the way, and take in all the British charm we can.

In the town of Calstock, we walk the Cotehele Estate, which has been around since the mid 15th Century, and has one of the most untouched Tudor homes in all of England.

Soon though, it was time to head to London, where we’d be staying with our friends on SV Polaris, whom we’d meet while sailing the Isles of Scilly. They welcomed us into their home for the next few days, showing us the local sights, and even getting me on the water one more time.

Their son, Constantin, does weekly races on the River Thames, and it was decided that this week, I would join him. Having never sailed such a small boat before, I was terrified I would capsize us at some point in the race. But it turns out Constantin is a great teacher, and we even took fifth place! Not bad for a total newbie.

WE FOUND A BUILD SITE!! – A Quickie Real Time Update – MJ Sailing

Somehow it happened without us even trying or searching – but we’ve stumbled upon a build site for the new catamaran! Support the build, and get bonus material and access to private content by becoming a Patron today. https://www.patreon.com/mjsailing We want to quickly bring you up to speed, so before we can catch our episodes up, here’s a real time update with what’s going on with us RIGHT NOW! After selling Elements and leaving England, we flew back to the US to spend a little time with family before we began the search for what will be our catamaran build site for the next two years. We hadn’t even begun the search yet, we were just in Annapolis visiting friends – but that friend found the perfect spot for us! Fast forward a few days, and we’re getting ourselves set up to build inside a paint tent in Kentmoor Marina on Kent Island. http://kentmorrmarina.net/ Funny how it all fell into place so quickly, but we could not be more happy about it! Make sure to stay tuned next week when we revert back in time to our weekly episodes, where we just sold Elements and have a little time to spend in England before flying home to the US. Much love from Maryland! Jessica, Matt & Georgie
