About Me

Singapore
I am owned by Pauline and Mark Blasky. My hull was built at the Duncan Marine Yard in Taiwan and launched in Dec of 1980. It is a William Garden design based on the Pixie Design and called by Duncan Marine a Freedom 45. They are the fourth owners and have owned me the longest. They have done extensive refitting to me including replacing my entire deck structure and rig. My masts are roughly 10% taller than original and now are made of aluminium as opposed to the original wood ones, which, though pretty, were always problematic.

Happy New Year's Eve

Well, we will be spending a sober New Year Celebration but hey it doesn't get much more beautiful than this right now.  Of course it is subject to weather and that is subject to change.  Our grib files from yesterday showed a pretty heavy blow to the north of us.  We have enough wind that we are considering shortening sail a bit more but are loving the speeds we are ticking off right now so while visibility is good and the seas are favorable, we will keep pressing on.  Most important we are getting that much coveted southing in.  A little west of our course line but once the trades kick in we should be able to pinch a bit to make up the difference.

Here is to everyone celebrating the end of 2015 and we wish you all a very good 2016.
