Andy is (professionally) a sailor and a journalist. Mia is (professionally) a photographer and sailing event manager. And it's now official that we are managing the USA side of the World Cruising Club as well. We met in New Zealand in 2006, got married in Sweden in 2011, and sailed our yawl Arcturus across the Atlantic for our honeymoon. We love to run, love to bike, love to ski, love to travel and really just love exploring life and the world around us. Thanks for visiting!
Mia and I are back in St. Lucia for the 5th straight year, working the finish of the ARC Rally. I'll be posting regular updates from here, but this one is pretty big news. What follows is the official press release from WCC HQ in Cowes. And don't miss my dad's Sojourner in the background - he was on the finish line this morning when they crossed!
