Our cruising life began because we both have always shared a passion for the sea. One day we saw this Columbia 8.7 Sailboat on Craigslist down on Galveston Bay. That listing changed our life forever and was the beginning of our adventure. We had been away from the water for five years at this point. Actually we were living high up in the mountains of Southern New Mexico. Therefore many changes had to take place in order for us to make our sailing dreams a reality. There were some immediate challenges in moving your life from 7500 feet down to sea level.
We are very excited that our extensive 12 month refit is nearing completion and we are ready to untie the lines to begin the next chapter of our cruising life. Stargazer has a great sailing history and we want to get her back exploring the Caribbean where she belongs. Along the way we will be documenting our experiences with the stars in our eyes and our good old boat chasing rainbows and sunrises to new horizons. We would love to connect with you on Instagram or over on our Facebook page Sailing Stargazer where we are posting our latest news.
