We are Glen and Oana. In early 2016 we decided to end our professional days, knowing we will not miss the long office hours, the power-points or the stress. We are both restless spirits with travel and adventure in our hearts, so we needed an action plan for our early retirement.
Glen has been passionate about sailing since his teen years, with racing high on his preferences. So it came naturally that the next stage of our lives would involve buying a sailing yacht and start cruising extensively. A trip to Dusseldorf Boar Show convinced us we wanted to pursue this path, and a couple of months later (and extensive boat research) we had a short list of boats we wanted to see in order to choose our future home. That’s how Cloudy Bay came into the picture. (For the full story on how we chose the boat, see the Personal Stories archive.)
Currently, this lifestyle suits us perfectly. We have a long list of places to sail to, with no firm agenda or deadline. Our aim is to complete a circumnavigation and explore as many places as possible. This is our blog, where we keep a record of our adventures, and we invite you to follow along.
