Moving forward toward life as liveaboards on Kaya, our sailboat, and making it to our goal destination of Vanuatu is an enormous logistical challenge. Kaya is currently finishing her career as a charter boat in Martinique, the Eastern Caribbean. We will join her there and immerse ourselves in the French culture as we learn about our new home. This immersion will be helpful in several ways. Vanuatu is a former French colony. Amy and Ysa have bit of a learning curve in regards to sailing and boat life. With help from Pierre from Mermer Locations, Kaya’s original home, it should be time well spent. When we leave Martinique we will sail north to the US Virgin Islands (USVI) to spend the spring working and helping the people of USVI and Puerto Rico with their continued rebuild from the devastation of hurricane seasons. We plan to leave the islands by late summer for the continental U.S. for modifications to Kaya in preparation for her to be a free floating clinic. Departing the U.S., we will return to the Caribbean and spend time where the greatest need from late summer hurricane season is. Early fall we will sail for the Panama Canal and cross to the Galapagos and Easter Islands before filling our sails to cross the Pacific Ocean en route to our destination of Vanuatu. Along the way we will have cabins and space available for you to volunteer and join us. As we draw closer to readiness for volunteers, a calendar and application process will be added to our website so you can apply and plan to join us and Sail For Good!
Keep following and share. As always, we’d love to hear from you. Send us any questions or suggestions.
