Adventures of s/v WILD HAIR


Our land life took on form, solidity, routine. We had mastery of a limited set of skills. We had habitual expectations of others and ourselves. Going sailing, we let go of our attachments to our roles, views, and rituals. We persist because we are growing in this shapeless and dynamic world.

Adding It Up

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.
