Arcturus is my wonderful, beautiful sailboat. She is a 1983 Pacific Seacraft Orion measuring in at 27 feet (32 with the bowsprit). She displaces 10,000 lbs, has a 4 foot draft and is 9 feet 6 inches wide. I purchased her in May 2010 and took a five week sailing trip to Ft. Lauderdale and back with Jimmy James Tyson, Julia Kernitz and Ryan Boyle. I lived aboard in Ocracoke for the spring of last year before moving her over to New Bern. I returned from a three and a half month adventure to the Bahamas and back in late March 2012. Arcturus is currently in Ocracoke and will be here for a while.
The business plan is to set out indefinitely in 2013 and start to sail out into the world. The stories and photos in the blog are from my travels so far. Most are really long winded so don’t feel like you have to read them all! I always love to hear from people too, so leave me comments if you so choose. Enjoy!
