USA: Paradise Found: Living in the Groove of the Pacific Eddy

PARADISE FOUND takes you from the west coast of America across the Pacific describing a cruiser’s life of simple pleasures, wild adventures, and magical moments experienced on a twelve-year Pacific voyage.

FellowShip – a Yamaha 33 – sailed north to Alaska on her shakedown cruise before heading off to Hawaii, the Line Islands, the Cook Islands, Tonga, Fiji, Iles Wallis, Tuvalu, Vanuatu, New Caledonia. Twelve (12) years swirling around in the South Pacific.

Author Sally and her partner Foster are currently living and cruising aboard a 40′ sailboat in British Columbia, Canada.

The stories grew out of a series of monthly articles published in the news magazine Pacific Islands Monthly (1990-2000) and several international yachting publications.

“Flashback to Nineteen Ninety. The year we gave up careers, steady income, insurance benefits, television. The year we left California and went cruising. The year we cut the ties that bound us to Monday to Friday nine to five, reruns of “Cheers” each evening at seven and eleven and “The Wonder Years” on Tuesday night. Suddenly we were thirty-something and unemployed by choice. No children ditto. No fixed address. No fixed latitude. Our goal – to spend the next few years enjoying ourselves and each other. Sailing. Relishing our independence. Breaking from the temptation of over consumption and the concept of upward mobility. Realizing our goal of independent mobility. Aspiring to an alternative sustainable lifestyle. Going cruising!
