Making my first offshore passage! – Sailing Tarka Ep. 5

Proceeds from this video will go to the Coral Reef Alliance, but you can also support me directly (and specifically the production of these videos) by becoming a Patron:

Tarka is a 1973 Albin Vega 27 (8.2m) that I bought sight-unseen and without sailing experience on the island of St. Martin in April of 2017. I was thrust head-first into ocean sailing as I got Tarka safely south from what would become the most devastating hurricane seasons on record. We are now working our way west towards the Pacific.

I am sailing Tarka around the world to raise money and awareness for coral conservation by supporting the Coral Reef Alliance. You can learn more here:

or visit their website directly:


If you make a donation to their website directly in Tarka’s honor, please send me an e-mail copy of your receipt so I can keep track of Tarka’s fundraising. You can forward to:

Additional support for Tarka’s sail for CORAL has come from:

Soylent – Providing easy and healthy provisioning for long offshore passages
Sta Lok – Providing swageless terminals for portions of Tarka’s rigging, making it a DIY job and allowing for easy inspection
