The Collins Family Adventure


In 2001, after a bout with cancer which left us feeling that the future was not as certain as we'd thought before, we decided not to put off our dream......we wanted to take our daughter and go sailing for an extended time. We bought our boat Zora in May 2002. She needed a lot of work, but.... with a little help from friends and strangers.... we did it! In July 2004 we set sail on our big adventure!

We lived aboard for two years and traveled from Maine to South America and back. We're back home in Maine now, staying involved in sailing and the sailing world as we plan for another longer trip.

On this web site we've chronicled the two-year major refit and renovation of the boat and shared stories and photos from the big 2-year cruise. We've gained much knowledge and entertainment from other sailors' web sites, and we hope that ours will be of some use to others!  

Thanks for visiting...
