While here in Cabedelo, Brazil, we took Seefalke out of the water and are currently working on eight major projects, which we describe in this video. Stay tuned for the completion updates and a briefing on our next adventure, which will be a sail along the Amazon Delta.

Bob McDonald is an expert sailor with deep experience. He is our neighbor on Plash Island and a legend on the waters of the Gulf Coast. We call him Sailboat Bob.

This year, at the young age of just 79, he will embark on his lifelong dream of setting sail for good. Take an afternoon sail with us down the Intracoastal Waterway to learn some sound advice from a salty sailing legend.
