New Sponsorship!!! From

Exciting news!!! We just received sponsorship from !!! Mystery Science is a fantastic online resource for science lessons. We look forward to using it during our sailing adventures.

 About Mystery Science:

Mystery Science provides open-and-go lessons that inspire kids to love science. The online resource makes it easy for elementary school teachers to deliver an incredible science lesson without a science background. Rather than a textbook approach to science vocabulary, hands-on activities engage students with the mysteries of science and expose them to the joy of scientific inquiry at an early age. Lessons are aligned with Common Core and Next Generation Science Standards and designed to supplement existing curriculum.


On the hook update and first commute to work from anchor.

S/V Shawnigan on Richardson Bay

Our first night on the hook on Richardson Bay was seamless. The next day we woke up, did some boatschooling, then rowed to shore to go to the post office and get some groceries. We had duck tacos for dinner using our new 10 quart pressure cooker. Yummy. After dinner we cruised on over to Treasure Island to drop the hook next to two boat friends of ours. We’ll probably stay here for a few days.

Today I woke up at 5:25 AM to climb off the boat into the dinghy with my bike. I rowed to shore, rode to the bus stop on my bike, rode the bus over the Bay Bridge to the city, then rode my bike to work. I think it was the easiest bike commute I’ve had in the last four years and definitely an adventure.
