Twenty years from now you will be more disapppointed in the things you didn't do than the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the tradewinds in your sails.
Explore. Dream. Discover.

El Tiburon Crew, Rich Powell
Sarah's brother has done a lot of sailing aboard El Tiburon, and we are glad he has agreed to join us for the Ba Ha-Ha leg from San Diego to Cabo San Lucas.
We are vagabonds by choice. Born with short attention spans, a nomadic lifestyle satisfies our wanderlust. Like most sharks, we need to move to breathe. In the early 80's Sarah transited the Panama Canal in her 30 foot Islander sailboat, bought a Swan sailboat in France and sailed across the Atlantic Ocean to the Caribbean. Sarah has a PhD in psychology and has taught in Hawaii, Arizona, California, and Saudi Arabia. On a parallel path Darrell, an avid mountaineer and ice climber, followed his heart's desire in and around the South Pacific flying small planes for 3 years. Darrell has an MBA and has run nonprofits, and managed engineering research at Stanford University and Cal Berkeley.
Our shared passions for sea and terra firma have us living a simple, but a adventuresome life. Today, travels shift between our home in the Sierra and life at Sea, with time in between spent exploring nature in our travel trailer. Our four-legged amigo, Sparky the Vizsla, is happiest running, swimming, and sleeping in the middle. The newest adventure to light up our lives is a grandson.
