We do have email that comes to our boat directly through our radio. For this type of email, bandwidth is extremely limited so please be succinct and [although we love them] no jokes or attachments. Please don't let this stop you, we would love to hear from you. Contact us by using our email contact link (above) and we will send you our direct-to-boat email address.
We want to keep in touch! If you just want to follow our progress while at sea, see YOTREPS, Shiptrak, or Winlink [below].

Our Boat Card
Boat cards are carried to exchange with other cruisers so that you can more easily stay in touch with your new friends. We also present them to government officials and village chiefs as a calling card and a show of respect. Although many are quite elaborate and may even have colored photos of the cruisers, Carina's simple b/w card was done in Publisher and is printed aboard on a tiny ink jet printer.
