Ocean Cruising Adventures 2020

SAILING TOTEM: A Family’s 10 Year Adventure Circumnavigating the World 

FEBRUARY 29, 2020

Jamie and Behan Gifford sailed south from the Salish Sea in 2008 anticipating cruising for a two- to five-year sabbatical. Instead, nearly a decade later they closed the loop on a circumnavigation aboard their Stevens 47, Totem. Their three children have grown up afloat, with the oldest transitioning ashore for college this past year. The Totem family has sailed nearly 100,000 km while visiting 48 countries and territories, from Madagascar to Martinique. They’re currently cruising the Pacific side of Mexico, with plans to return to the South Pacific in the spring.

Jamie and Behan delight in sharing their experiences, gained wisdom and knowledge of living life afloat. Come listen and be enticed by their adventure.
