Welcome to "Our Dream world" and the attempt to turn that dream into a reality.
One evening, whilst having drinks, Barry blurted out "Let's sail around the world" Those were the words which started this amazing journey. To take our two youngest children and sail around the world.
Barry being the dreamer originated the idea. Lola the planner set the wheels in motion and with a little luck and a lot of work this dream became a reality.
In 2010 we finally purchased Yrumoar, our beloved floating home and spent the next 18 months doing major repairs to her. As with most sailing dreams this became a nightmare, the never ending and ever increasing costs of yacht ownership took their toll but we finally got back into the water in March 2012 and started our sea trials.
We are now travelling along the South African coast line towards Cape Town and our Atlantic crossing, starting a new company that allows us to incorporate our sailing trip while earning on the side, striving to keep our dreams real and entertaining our readers at the same time.
