Stefa Katamay and Jürgen Harding spent three years preparing themselves and their Tayana 37 Mazu for an offshore voyage from Victoria to San Francisco and then the coastal hop to the Sea of Cortez. Over that time it wasn’t just the sights that produced awe, wonder and delight.

Recognizing and managing anxiety, identifying communication issues and solutions, managing themselves and sharing leadership on the boat were transformative experiences. Join Stefa as she takes us to the places visited and the ones we rarely talk about—the places we journey to within ourselves.

Stefa and Jürgen came to big boat ownership in 2014 when they bought their Tayana 37 Mazu and moved aboard. Both came from small boat sailing—Stefa owned and maintained an international 420 that she sailed on the Ottawa River and dabbled in a bit of windsurfing; Jürgen windsurfed competitively from 1979–1992 and maintained a 26’ Nash which he also sailed on the Ottawa River.

Once Mazu was in their lives both Stefa and Jürgen threw themselves at courses and experiences to develop their big boat skills in tandem. In 2017 Stefa and Jürgen sailed Mazu to Mexico where she now sits on the hard. Last year Stefa and Jürgen returned to Canada to settle in Victoria where Stefa subsequently qualified as a Retirement Options™ Coach and is now helping others transition to new challenges.
