About Richard James

Richard and Audrey James are living the dream of many of us. They are sailing from California to the Caribbean via the Panama Canal then along the north shore of Colombia to the Caribbean.. After 23 years of working at General Motors North America and GM Latin America, Africa and Middle East (LAAM) James and his wife bought a sailboat and ventured out on the high seas. Sailing has been in James' blood since he was a student in Australia on an exchange program at the University of Toronto. He has raced and cruised sailboats wherever he happened to be living and on charter boats in the Caribbean. He also took a previous sabbatical earlier in his working life, sailing a 36-foot sailboat from Toronto, Canada to the Bahamas. Follow James and Audrey as they traverse the world in their sailboat, and as they reimmerse themselves into the work world.

October 16, 2013 – It took a while, but we did finally leave the marina on Monday, September 30. The sun was shining, and there was virtually no wind, so we started motor-sailing from Oxnard to Santa Cruz Island, where we planned to spend the night before sailing to Catalina Island the next [...]

September 27, 2013 - We can’t believe it’s been over a month since we left our jobs but it’s been crazy busy. Of course, we had to start with a little downtime, so we spent some time at adult Disneyland aka Vegas. Since then it’s been endless weeks of getting the boat ready [...]
