Hey all,

I've been on cruiserlog for a few months. I am endebted to this site for helping me find a family who would take my boyfriend and I on their 50 ft sailboat all the way to French Polynesia. In fact, we leave tomorrow morning from San Diego, CA, and will be underway for about a month.

I've been a professional tall ship sailor for a couple years, living and working aboard large, traditionally-rigged vessels all around the United States. However, I'm now changing gears, and my boyfriend (also a tall ship sailor) and I are embarking on what will hopefully be a circumnavigation by sail. Since we don't own our own boat, we are trying to earn passage with other cruisers in exchange for whatever sailing competence we possess, and our hard work.

We recently started a blog about our journey. So far, it mostly discusses our preparations, but as soon as we hit Nuku Hiva, we'll flood it with content. We hope to show people that the world of cruising is open to everybody, and that all it takes is initiative, the willingness to live simply and work hard. We also hope to provide valuable information about our destinations, including somewhat off-the-beaten-path places such as Nuku Hiva, our first stop. If you're interested, check us out at: crossingtheline2011.blogspot.com.

This is a wonderful, informative website, and I'm happy to be a part of it.
