Welcome to our website! We’re Mike and Verena. We met after college, while working aboard a research vessel in Alaska, collecting data to update nautical charts. We later moved to Portland, Oregon and worked for a hydrographic firm that kept us traveling all over the US and working aboard small boats.
In 2008, we both got our 100 tons captain’s licenses; and in 2011 we quit our jobs, bought a boat and went sailing in Mexico for a couple of years. Currently we are back in the US and picking up the odd hydrographic contracting jobs. Our boat, Camille, is in San Diego and for sale, but we won’t be heart broken if she doesn’t sell too quickly as we still have hopes of further exploring Catalina and the Channel Islands.
