We have spent the last four years rebuilding our schooner, Glacier Gem, in preparation for a lifelong dream to circumnavigate the globe by sail. To accomplish this trip we will primarily use celestial navigation and other traditional methods, but we will use electronics too! It is our goal to inspire others to follow their dreams.

We will be posting a photograph that best sums up a particular part of our journey. The photo of the week will be shown on our website.

The database of the "Photo of the Week" will be reserved for Patrons only and is found at our Patreon site. In addition, we are building a behind the scenes part of our trip to include pre-planning, traditional navigation worksheets (the work completed enroute), and other information. Please become a Patron to see more!
