It's hard to believe that so much can happen in 12 months.
Up to date we have traveled over 8 thousand miles as a family .
Despite the clutter and occasional chaos that reigns on board GLAYVA, I believe our sanity levels are still reasonably balanced!!!!!!
Our 42ft Sayer designed sloop has guided us through 50knot winds, Malacca Straits, Aceh and Northern Sumatra, 6 mtr waves, and various sundowner parties.
The cruising life swings steeply from crazily social to periods of total alienation and ambience.
Namara, now 10, and Arran, now 9, continue to homeschool using the best curriculum, self named, "The Bare Foot Boat School." They both eat books and baked beans in nearly equal quantities, and are currently lapping up the social life in a marina in Rebak Island,Langkawi.
