Congratulations to Ken and Patty Sebby who have arrived in Sydney Australia in their 1991 Krogen 42′ “Oogachakka”. Their arrival in Sydney is the culmination of a multi-year year 10,000+ mile journey that began on the Columbia River (border of Washington and Oregon) in 2011. They traveled north to Alaska for the summer of 2012 and in October 2012 made a 6.5 day offshore passage south from Washington to San Diego. The trip was enlightening as the learned what they knew and didn’t know about offshore passagemaking. That November they participated in a cruisers rally to Mexico after which they spent the better part of the next 15 months preparing for their Pacific crossing. They left Mexico on March 20, 2014 bound for French Polynesia and a little more than 19 days and 2,749 nautical miles later the duo made landfall at the island of Nuku Hiva which is the largest of the Marquesas Islands. From there, they “hopped” their way across the South Pacific spending time in Tahiti, Bora Bora, Tonga, Fiji and New Caledonia before arriving in Sydney on August 27, 2014.
Congratulations again to this intrepid pair who have shown over the years that a Kadey-Krogen is At Home on Any Sea.
