I'm the proud mom of an amazing son and daughter. My son Phillip is a software engineer for Runkeeper.com in Boston and we love to have him visit as often as he can. My 14 year old daughter Coleen is our First Mate and an awesome home school student. I retired very early from my career as a Project Executive at IBM so I could enjoy the cruising life full-time. I love to travel, sail, explore, hike, swim, snorkel, fly kites, go on picnics, cook everything from scratch and read. Best of all I enjoy meeting new people!
The First Mate
Coleen is an awesome first mate. She's only 14 years old but she is already becoming an old salt. She is in ninth grade and is being home schooled by her mom. As first mate she is responsible for raising the anchor, raising the main and standing watch. She keeps the boat filled with water, and is responsible for all deck and hull cleaning.
Coleen is a huge reader. She enjoys swimming, photography,snorkeling and scuba diving, movies, playing board games - and just hanging out with other boat kids.
