Welcome to the Sailing with Lucy Channel. My name is Adriana, I'm an award winning author and musician, and I live on a boat with my husband Jim who is an engineer/musician and sailor, and our three year old 'Spoodle' Lucy. A Spoodle is an English Cocker Spaniel x Miniature Poodle.
We'll be posting regular videos describing our life afloat and our slow-sailing travels.
About our boat:
Kekaimalu is a Swanson 42. The Swanson Brothers were a family of Norwegian yacht designers and master boatbuilders. They designed and built about 165 boats in Australia, including successful ocean racers and blue water cruising yachts in timber and then in fibreglass. Kekaimalu was one of the last fibreglass hulls built in their factory in the 1980’s. The fit out was then completed meticulously by the previous owners, Paul and Kate, over a period of 15 years. She is 42 foot long, solid fibreglass hull with an encapsulated lead keel (4 tonne), 5' 10" draft and her displacement is 12,700 kg. Read More Read Less
