Sarah is my Pearson 424 Ketch, purchased in 2000.  For the first 5 years I owned her I used Sarah for weekend and vacation cruises on the Chesapeake Bay while preparing her for my trans-Atlantic trip to Europe and the Mediterranean Sea in 2005.  After returning from Europe in 2007, and spending the winters of 2008/2009 and 2014 in The Bahamas, the winter of 2009/2010 in New Bern, NC,

Detiorating health has kept me dockside in Jacksonville, Fl for the past 4 years (as of 2018).  It is doubtful I will resume cruising in the future; however, I intend to continue living onboard Sarah for as long as possible.

The Sarah's Location and Sarah's Blog links were used when I was still actively cruising.  Sarah's Location is no longer active, and Sarah's Blog covers my last cruise to the Abacos.  I keep these links on the web page in the hope that I might have need for them in the future.
