We are Nelly and Jacques. We come from Brittany, France.

When we retired a couple of years ago, we decided to do The Great Loop, and we “crossed our wake” in Nov. 2017 on our PDQ 34 power catamaran “Magic”. According to the AGLCA association, we are the first French boaters to have finished the Loop. We had a great time!

After living together on board for 15 months, the only thing we wanted to do was… to keep going, while we could. But where should we go next? The Pacific Northwest rapidly became an obvious choice. A mix of the USA and Canada, extraordinary landscapes, challenging navigation conditions… how about finding a new boat to cruise there 6 months a year for a few years?

That is the plan, and we’re working on it. This blog will help us organise our feelings and memories, and keep our families and friends posted on our progress. We hope you’ll enjoy it too!
