Behan, Jamie, and their children Niall, Mairen, and Siobhan, have cruised from North America through the Pacific, Southeast Asia, and Africa in a slow but steady circumnavigation. They returned to North America to complete their circumnavigation in the summer of 2016 and their eldest son Niall moved ashore to start university. The rest of the family continue to live onboard and cruise the Caribbean and Central America.
Their blog provides a huge library of resources for cruisers and a window into the everyday experiences of a sailing family (whose children have grown up on board). They are enthusiastic supporters of people who want to follow their own cruising dreams and when internet allows, happily respond to questions through their blog.
Their blog also has a great many articles about kids & cruising, with tips and advice. Mum Behan is one of the authors of “Voyaging with Kids” and with Jamie run cruising coaching. Find out more on their website.
Currently they are in Baha, Mexico where Totem has undergone a comprehensive refit, including a new engine. They are planning to head out again into the Pacific later in 2022.
