What's New with the site

We thank all of our viewers—over three million hits to date—for following our adventures and moments of bliss sailing our 43-foot Catana catamaran Pacific Bliss around the world.  She completed her circumnavigation, crossing her outgoing path at 10:05 on August 28, 2008, for a total of 33,996 nautical miles.  Pacific Bliss has been sold to a delightful couple from the U.K., so her adventure continues. Gunter and I are landlubbers in San Diego now, when we are not traveling or chartering.  We will continue to blog about our ongoing travel experiences.
And Lois will continue to write her trilogy, In Search of Adventure and Moments of Bliss. So keep on checking this site.  If you would like to be on a notification list (no obligation to purchase) let me know, Contact us

We have also added a World Photo Gallery, so that you can look at - and even purchase - photos alphabetized by country, You will still be able to click on the Photo Gallery for each of the seven voyages of Pacific Bliss. We thank you for your visit.

In Search of Adventure and Moments of Bliss: Maiden Voyage

Night of the Nets by Lois Joy

We are continuing to work on the Trilogy, a series called “In Search of Adventure and Moments of Bliss.”  The next book in the trilogy, planned for release in  2011, is called “Sailing the South Seas.”  The format will be the same, with about 150 full-color photos, including many scenics and photos of islanders.  It will allow you to dream on, along with us, as an armchair sailor!
