Beth & Evans

With this website we hope to share our joy in living the cruising life and to provide information that could be useful to other cruisers.

To the left are some buttons that will take you to: a description of our background, our two boats, and our two voyages around the world, some details on and an opportunity to buy Beth's three books {The Voyager's Handbook, Blue Horizons, Following Seas}, some useful links and FAQs, and a gallery of voyaging

Below are just a few photos, to entice you and to demonstrate the wide range of experiences the cruising life offers. We hope you enjoy your visit to our site.

Quick News

  • Added FAQ 69 on what sort of refit Hawk needs after 11 years hard cruising.
  • We read a lot when on board. I put together the following list of 'the 100 best novels', to try and help me read 'good stuff' rather than just trash. I prefer reading trash on passage but 'good stuff' at anchor. Many of these I had already read in school, but many I had not. While I am on lists, we actually don't listen to all that much music - preferring to head the sounds of nature and the boat, but I have referred to this list of the 100 best singles when adding music.
  • Updated blog (6-28-09)
  • I have added a search bar just above, that searches this site.
  • Interesting report on safety/injuries across sports
  • Update to Beth's fall presentation schedule

I MUST down to the seas again,
to the lonely sea and the sky,
And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by
And the wheel's kick and the wind's song and the white sail's shaking
And a grey mist on the sea's face and a grey dawn breaking.
I must down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide
Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied;
And all I ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying,
And the flung spray and the blown spume, and the sea-gulls crying.
I must down to the seas again to the vagrant gypsy life.
To the gull's way and the whale's way where the wind's like a whetted knife;
And all I ask is a merry yarn from a laughing fellow-rover,
And quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trick's over.

John Masefield
