Fantastic Voyage, Fantastic Crew

Congratulations to the crew of Anasazi Girl on the completion of a fantastic voyage!

Ever since our old friend Jim Burwick told us of he and Somira's plans to sail west to Australia on their 40 foot ultra race boat with their family on board we have been a little worried.

To most people's eyes Anasazi Girl is a bit extreme for cruising with a family, let alone with two small children, and LET ALONE sailing 4800 miles across the Indian Ocean through the roaring forties, LET ALONE late in the year!

But these folks are great sailors with many ocean miles and thier boat is strong and seaworthy. Jim's abilites and resourcefullness has been well demonstrated by his already completed around the world voyage on this boat.

So, if anybody could do it, they could.

But still, we were worried.
