We invite you to share in our dream of circumnavigating the globe aboard our Hans Christian 48T (57 ft.) sailing yacht... 
So far we've made it half way around!
Flags of the Countries We've Visited 
Through this site, we are keeping our friends, family and acquaintances up-to-date with our travels and experiences as we progress on our route. On December 30th 2001 we cut the lines from our dock in San Diego and began our dream heading first down the Baja Mexico coastline and then onto Mainland Mexico's Gold Coast.  In spring of 2003, Mi Gitana departed Mexico heading for the South Pacific until the fall, and visited French Polynesia, Cook Islands, Nuie, Tonga, and Fiji. In spring of 2004, we continued to explore the South Pacific including more of Fiji then on to Vanuatu, New Caldonia, and Australia. Last Season (2005) we traveled over 3,200 miles going up the East Coast of Australia (including the Great Barrier Reef) and over the top to Darwin. Then we traveled into Indonesia and ended in Bali.  This year (2006) our plans are to cruise Southeast Asia going from Indonesia to Thailand...
