Kermit Sailing

Thursday, February 26, 2015

"Kermit" is our little 20' Balboa Sloop that we use for the training in our ASA 101 courses with Island Dreamer Sailing School. 

Sailing aboard Kermit in our anchorage
She is a fast little tank that we sail through our anchorage and over to south beach. Kermit is considered a 'pocket cruiser' as she has the necessary things to *live* aboard, designed for the weekend or 'camping' sailor.

Kermit holds a special place in Derrek and I's heart as she was once the staff boat in the Boy Scout Camp we used to work at in the middle Florida Keys. We like to joke that we used to sail Kermit on our days off, evenings (any chance we could get) and now we get paid to take her out. Sometimes our friends from the Keys who sailed with us 'back in the day' still come up to sail on her with us on the weekends - just like old times we load her up with pizza, drinks and go sailing "to nowhere" as we just enjoy the day.
