Gone Floatabout

Sailing, Photography, Wilderness


What: “Gone Floatabout” grew out of email updates I sent to friends and family while we were sailing around the world. It’s a bunch of stories: mostly about sailing in Alaska and mostly written long after the fact. Non-competitive ocean sailing is not about going fast, and story-telling isn’t either. Both happen slowly and by their nature require a certain amount of contemplation.

Who writes this blog: I like sailing, mountains, wildlife, photography, and writing. I’ve published a lot of stories about sailing.

Boat: CELESTE is a cold-molded wooden sloop built in 1985 in British Columbia, Canada. She’s pretty small and basic compared with today’s boats, but she’s strong and sails beautifully!

Routes we’ve sailed: Here’s a map 🙂
