Slow Cruise

Sailing Adventures of s/v Alpine Zephyr
"With a sailboat, the beauty of retirement is that if the grass starts to look greener somewhere else, all you need to do is pull up anchor or cast off dock lines and go check it out." -- Sailing Forum post

Intro

I have dreamed of sailing the seas since childhood. After years of family living, IT career and multitude of hobbies, I am following up on that dream. It is an open ended journey - no fixed plans and no end date - the time will tell.

My wife joins me on this adventure. As we sail, we learn not to rush, but rather to enjoy the life and beauty of the places we are in - staying as long as we like and moving on when new horizons catch our imagination.

This website is a casual photo chronicle of our journey - a more-or-less daily journal of pretty much what we have seen.
~~ Captain Alex

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did.
So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."
-- Mark Twain

Boat Upgrades at the Yard and Some Fun Time in Florida

Before going for the next cruising season, I have decided to make few fairy major upgrades to our yacht:
1. Replace aging fabric dodger / bimini rooftop with a semi-rigid polycarbonate
2. Upgrade solar and power system
3. Install watermaker / desalinator

These projects took much more time then originally planned, but at the end it was well worth it. Plus, I have saved quite a bit of money by doing all work myself.

Also, spent some fun time on Florida - walking town streets, going to festivals and fairs, and just road tripping around.

Rented a car and fully stocked the boat for the upcoming several months trip to Bahamas.
