Bring your inner dreams and find that comfortable chair to sit in while you follow Mark and Helen as we sail our catamaran, Charabia, from Jacksonville, Florida to Australia. Be with us as we sail through reef entrances of famous islands and anchor off sandy beaches of five star resorts that you only read about in the glossy travel magazines. Visualize our arrival in Australia, along with 65 other Down Under Rally boats, as we plant our feet on Australian soil.
This book describes the power of a dream to travel the world from my younger days while growing up on a grape farm in Ontario, Canada, close to edge of Lake Ontario. Mark and I left Canada in the fall of 1994 sailing our Catalina 34 sailboat across Lake Ontario, through the Oswego and Erie Canals to the Hudson River and south to the IntraCoastal Waterway to Florida, over to the Bahamas and south to Trinidad. Our endless love for the water never ceases with the many years of sailing and nothing was ever going to stop us.
We found the perfect boat, desire, and energy to fulfill our dream sail to Australia. This book describes the steps we undertook to sail the world: boat maintenance, new equipment, provisions and mental preparation. Mark’s nautical wealth of knowledge and technical expertise enabled many hours outfitting Charabia and maintaining her during this sailing adventure.
This book is equally a good read for anyone who has a dream. If you truly believe in your dream, then you can manifest it, too.
The previous French owners named our 38 foot catamaran, ‘Charabia’ meaning non-sense; derived from Arabic "sharab" which means alcohol. When you drink (too much) alcohol, you start talking non-sense or Charabia. We had plenty of alcohol onboard Charabia.
Please join The Unstoppable Dream sailing the length of Florida to Grand Cayman, south to Panama, transiting the Panama Canal and north to Costa Rica and Mexico, west to Hawaii, south to French Polynesia, and west to Cook Islands, American Samoa, Tonga, New Caledonia and finally, Bundaberg, Australia!
