My friend Robin sent me a video her daughter made as their family embarked on a sailing journey north from Bellingham.
Robin and I were high school classmates and have stayed in touch since we all ended up in Alaska. I was lucky enough to get a tour of the “Dutch Baby” in the Homer harbor–so it’s nice to see the boat in action.
Lilly is making a series of videos starting with getting the boat ready and loading up the family for the trip north.
Here’s her recap of the mission:
“Don and Robin Lane are semi-retired commercial fishermen. They raised their three children in this lifestyle. Their eldest went on to get her Captain’s license with unlimited tonnage endorsement. Their middle daughter, Lilly, is a home school mom of two that lives in Hawaii. And their son now runs their vessel the F/V Predator out of Petersburg, Alaska. Lilly, her husband Oly, and their two kids accompanied Don and Robin as crew on their 48 foot sail boat, the s/v Dutch Baby. They motor sailed from Washington up the Inside Passage to Petersburg, Alaska.”
Here’s a picture of the f/v Predator “at ease” in the Petersburg harbor:
