Video: Tayrona Goes West

Come aboard as s/v Tayrona sails from Miami, FL to Brisbane, Australia in two years of adventure.  I tried my best to keep it at a manageable seventeen minutes.  There are some shots you just can’t cut!  It’s soothing, so watch it when you have a little down time.   And make it full screen; it’s in good resolution!  Cast off the bowlines!  Put up all the canvas you can muster!  Let’s get some horizon!

Sea Song – (You and Me)

I wrote this song aboard s/v Tayrona as we sailed across the Pacific Ocean.  Just got a chance to record and put it together now as boats aren’t generally renown for their acoustic-silencing properties.  It’s sort of a easy-going tune to swashbuckle by.  Hope you like it.

There’s dew on the deck,
And the dawn’s not broke yet,
We haul the anchor together,
Lit by the sunrise,
You turn back to me,
With a smile that will light my forever,

Weigh! Our horizons await,
I hear the sirens sing our names on the breeze,
We’ll stand hand in hand as we set to the sea,
And we’ll sail ‘round the world,
Yes, we’ll sail ‘round the world,
You and me.

Full canvas flies,
As the morning arrives,
We ride the tide out the harbor,
It seems we’re destined,
To have favorable winds,
So let’s cast off the dock lines my lover,


Sails under strain,
Endless aqueous plains,
A squall rolls on through then another,
But the storm will abate,
And the seas moderate,
For we’ve tethered ourselves to each other,


So, you set the course,
I’ll steer through the white horses,
Landfall in the isles in ten days,
We sail side by side,
Twin keels seamlessly carving,
Two parallel paths through the waves.
