Sailing Around the World – An Out Chasing Stars Presentation

You asked for it, and here it is! This is the presentation we gave at my Grandma’s retirement community in Bellevue, WA on April 30, 2017, covering the first half of our sailing circumnavigation. We cover a lot of topics from how we got started and the basics of Starry Horizons all the way to some of our favorite memories.

  1. Great vid. Answered all my questions about you and your boat. Your videography is better than most of the other sailing vloggers I watch llike Delos or La Vaga. Oh and Admiral Amy let your hair down more often both literally and figuratively. Cheers and cruise safe.

  2. Love all your videos…. I'm a geek I power watched all of them. How did guys acquire all your sailing knowledge? That is what seems the most impressive to me. You are both great all the repairs and trouble shooting!

  3. Nice boat in the background of your intro…. xo

  4. Excellent presentation. The 67 minutes flew by. Very informative. Thank you for sharing your lives with us.

  6. awsum presentation. thank you

  7. Loved this presentation! Thank you so much for sharing it with us. Really enjoyable to watch.

  8. While I'm not sure what type facility this is. I once had the privilege of working in a nursing home where I witnessed many of the variables that are part of life life's journey as seniors. While there were daily activities for the residence who lived where I worked, a presentation like this would have been particularly special. To have young people take the time, the resources, the effort and passion for what they are doing… to bravely travel the world and come back to describe and share the experience of it all with those whos world has gotten much smaller… is a generous loving gift. The gift of time, the gift of conversation, the gift of respect, the gift of knowledge, of beauty, of laughter… it's all there. Bravo…Standing ovation.

  9. A superb, inspiring and informative presentation, thanks so much for uploading, which in itself must have taken a long time.
