Alli -First mate extraordinare
Originally from Johnstown, Pa (known for it’s epic floods and cold, yucky weather) Alli is thrilled to be living in a much warmer climate. As a former art teacher, she digs on all things creative and different. She was the BEST first mate a captain could ask for and is both a domestic and sailing goddess. She’s also an awesome fur mama to the one and only, Darby Cat.
Interests: Traveling, learning, trying new things,loving on animals, cooking, baking, and let’s not forget eating!
Goals: Learn to adapt back to land life; somehow find balance between work and adventure, all while feeding the ever ravenous travel bug; have a giant back yard with lots of animals and a garden.
Favorite island: Hands down, Puerto Rico!!! Martinique and Bequia come in second and third.
Dave – The Cap’t
After completing a grand sailing adventure, Dave is ready to get comfortable in Jacksonville and settle in for the long run. With a background in graphic design, he loves both traditional and contemporary mediums of art and is looking forward to finding a job in the industry. He hails from the suburbs of Philly, but is excited to explore his new home of Florida.
Interests: Sailing, surfing, graphic design, traveling, spending time with friends and sampling local brews (IPA’s are a fav).
Goals: Land an awesome job, continue to make new friends in Florida, get back to land life and enjoy the water and surf in between!
Favorite island(s): The Bahamas
Darby- Four legged crew
This fuzzy boy is a traveler! He’s gone flying in planes, has ridden in cars and sailed 5,400 nautical miles on the open ocean! He has a stomach of steel and has gotten sick fewer times that either of us. While under way, Darby normally finds a little ‘hidey hole’ and hunkers down. Once the anchor drops he is out and about waiting for treats and affection. He’s happy to be stationary at a marina now and he spends most days catching up on the sleep he lost during the course of our adventure.
Interests: Playing with string, watching birds and people from the boat, sniffing around for neighboring cats, tuna, playing on the dodger and going for the occasional walk on the docks.
Goals: To stay off of other people’s boats and let mom get some sleep at night (he likes to walk all over me and knead incessantly)
Favorite island: Grenada – because we didn’t move for four months!
