We’re Khiara and Adam and we’re currently cruising in our 1981 Tayana Vancouver 42, named the Millennial Falcon.
We met in 2015 when Adam moved in to our 5 bedroom share house (!!) in Melbourne, Australia. Thankfully it was love at first site (or that could have been awkward!) and within a few short months of spending nearly every minute together we soon started planning what we thought our future would hold. Having worked full time since I (Khiara) was 16 years old, I was dreaming of taking a year or two off to explore and travel the world. It didn’t take much convincing for Adam to get onboard with this plan except he threw in one of his own dreams… to own a sailboat!
And so our sailing dream was born!
Two years of frugal living, saving and trying to get as much money together as possible we made the leap and booked a flight from Australia, arriving in Miami, USA on 1st January 2018. One and a half months later, we splashed down the Millennial Falcon and she’s been our home ever since!
So join us while we laugh, learn, swear, celebrate and sail the long way back home…
