SV Resande

In September 2020 we purchased our Ericson 39B Resande and sailed her from Bowers Harbor down to Muskegon Michigan. Since thenwe’ve been gaining sailing experience and working on projects to get her cruising-ready. We’re starting with a great foundation, but we have several systems we want to build upon to get cruising ready.

The Goal: In 2023, we are planning to pack up our cats in the boat, and take off through the Great Lakes, the Erie Canal, and down to the Caribbean for at least one year. Beyond that is anyone’s guess 🙂
