The Sailing Trance World Tour started as a dream to sail around the world. We did our research, bought an ocean worthy “blue water” sailboat and settled on an Island Packet 420. It’s the perfect boat, big enough to have guests where they have their own cabin and bathroom, yet not too big for two people. We planned to have several family and friends joining us along the journey. Then the COVID pandemic happened, and we completed the circumnavigation on our own.
