Scott Fuller Living the Dream Aboard SCOOTS, an Apogee 50
Sail SCOOTS Website
Sail SCOOTS is the virtual home of SCOOTS, the Apogee 50 that has converted ex-Swiftsure Yachts partner/founder Scott Fuller, from a boater who plays the (boat ownership) field into a sailor committed to a long term relationship with just one special boat. This summer Scott is sailing from Hawaii to the South Pacific and back. His web site records each day of his passage as well as the interior refit of Scoots. Sailscoots.com is entertaining, insightful and certain to encourage folks to cut the dock lines.

The Gifford Family's Custom Stevens 47 Totem
New Totem Website
Jamie, Behan, Niall, Mairen, and Siobhan have officially moved aboard and are looking forward to their departure late summer of 2008. Their first boat a Hallberg Rassy 352 became just a little too tight with the birth of their third child, Siobhan. The search started and in the spring of 2007, THE boat was found in San Francisco. Ryan was a part of the crew that brought Totem up the coast to Bainbridge Island where Jamie has been doing a pretty major re-fit on the boat. Follow the Giffords as they head south.

Brian Trautman and Erin Russ's Amel 53 "Delos"
Delos Website
Brian and Erin purchased a Catalina 22 when they moved to Seattle and started teaching themselves how to sail. They graduated to a Catalina 36 and then realized that they were serious about going on an extended cruise. They worked with everyone at Swiftsure and looked at many boats before they decided on their Amel 53. Their patience has paid off as they moved aboard almost immediately and are enjoying themselves as they prepare to go cruising in the Summer of 2009.

John and Lauren Kutschka's Voyage on the Hallberg Rassy 43 "Velocity"
Velocity Voyage Website
The Swiftsure Yachts partners have played an important role in the realization of Lauren and John's dream of voyaging to the South Pacific. Pete worked with them to determine the boat that best suited their needs and then supported them every step of the way as their new Hallberg-Rassy 43 became a reality. They have journeyed far since the boisterous first sail they shared with Pete on Seattle's Lake Union. Scott joined VELOCITY on a windy trip from Seattle to San Francisco. Today John and Lauren are cruising the South Pacific.

Dan and Debbie Taylor's Cruising/Liveaboard Website
Double Reef Website
Dan Taylor knew what he wanted when he contacted Pete at Swiftsure Yachts. He wanted a solid sailboat that would be a suitable Northwest liveaboard and future world cruiser. He had his eyes fixed on a very nice 1983 Enderlein designed Hallberg-Rassy 42 Ketch. Pete flew with Dan to a very Frozen Charlevoix, MI to inspect and purchase SEQUEL. Pete also joined Dan for "Sequel's" maiden Northwest voyage across the Straits of Juan de Fuca to her new home in Friday Harbor. Dan's website chronicles his adventures with some wonderful photos and introspective blogs.

Seven Seas Cruising Association
SSCA Website
If you are planning or dreaming about a blue water voyage the SSCA is a great organization to join. The statement which follows describes their vision.

"For as long as mankind has memory, man has been entranced by the sea. The need to know what lies beyond the next wave and over the far horizon is all pervasive. Ask any group about their fantasies and someone will tell you of a vision of tropical blue skies, balmy breezes, ever-gentle waves and sailing to exotic ports. Those who are living the dream, those who are planning for the day they can release all the ties to the workaday world to sail off to seek paradise and those who only dream of such adventure all join together in an organization called the Seven Seas Cruising Association."
