Finding the Zodiac last year was a major sep in our transition to becoming a water-based family unit. Our family spent over 2 1/2 months in the San Juans and Gulf Islands as volunteer crew aboard the 160' schooner. Juliet learned to navigate and handle lines at ten years old. Her favorite sailing station is handling the parrel beads when raising sails. Justine, a junior in high school was able to crew aboard the Canadian Gulf Islands & Victoria BC cruise. As a sea scout she picked up the routine quickly. Even Dane, our 20 year old urban-ite was bitten by the tall ship sailing bug. We are now involved with the winter refit while she is docked in Lake Union. We anticipate another great season on the water aboard the Zodiac and our sailboat Sugaree.
