Above- Three cruising sharpies together on the beach in the Exumas in 1994- Little Cruiser, Hogfish and Paradox.  

Read about this years Cedar Key gathering on our Blog.

For a nice read about our trips, check out the article we wrote for SAIL MAGAZINE  a few years ago.


Mindy and David have a passion for small sailboats called micro-cruisers, and they have been cruising in their tiny boats for 30 years. Their favorite destinations have been the Outer Banks of North Carolina, the Florida Keys and the beautiful islands of the Bahamas. 

Unpleasant disclaimer: Like many other outdoor activities, sailing small boats has it's own inherent dangers that could result in injury or even death. Therefore, it's our sincere suggestion that you consider this website as simply a collection of our experiences of how we plan and take our trips. We might also add that though we favor our tiny sharpies, we certainly can not guarantee your satisfaction and safety in similar craft since everyone has different skills and every region of the world has its own unpredictable weather. Nonetheless, if you decide to venture from the perceived safety of your own home, you may have the opportunity to experience what this incredible wet world has to offer.
