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. In the early 80's Sarah transited the Panama Canal in her 30 foot sailboat, bought a Swan in France and sailed across the Atlantic Ocean to the Caribbean. Sarah has a PhD in psychology, and is now retired. On a parallel path, Darrell, an avid mountaineer and ice climber, followed his heart's desire flying small planes around the South Pacific for 3 years. Darrell has an MBA, has run nonprofits and managed engineering research at Stanford and Berkeley.
Our shared passions have us living a simple, but a adventuresome life. Today, we travel between our home in the Sierra and life at Sea. 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.
