Since September 2007, we have lived aboard s/v WILD HAIR, our 1994 45.5 foot Hylas sloop. Our trips along the East Coast have included the Grand Bahamas, Abacos, Eleuthra, Exumas, Nassau, and Bimini regions of the Bahamas; the Florida Keyes; the Intercoastal Waterway; Pamlico and Albermarle Sounds; and Biscayne and Chesapeake Bays. Together, we have undertaken many offshore passages, including a 3-day passage totaling 244 nautical miles. IN TWO YEARS, WE HAVE CRUISED A WHOPPING 4200 NAUTICAL MILES. If you’re slow to impress, please remember the boat’s top speed is eight knots. That’s as fast as a leisurely bike ride.
