I survived! I survived a week with three amazing women from Philly. These friends have been traveling to the far-flung corners of the globe. They are independent, bold, loud, and remarkable.

At a warehouse afterparty in St Augustine, Florida.


Originally Coco and Hanna had only booked to stay one night on the catamaran while in Florida during a bachelorette trip. One night led to three nights. Three nights led to inviting April. All in all, the girls stayed over a week. Not once did I feel that they had worn out their welcome.
Quickly I realized how much I enjoyed having them aboard. We ate like Kings and Queens for every breakfast and dinner.

The three girls were so very different on the individual level, but so much alike. Whatever magic they had worked. Not once did I hear them argue or pick a fight. Their differences in music, books, and fashion seemed to be scripted from a blockbuster movie. I enduringly started calling them The Powerpuff Girls.

You can’t always see their wings, but their wings are always there.


They like to think of themselves as cold-hearted, ruthless, no-chill… but I caught glimpses otherwise. I saw hearts bigger than I can ever hope to have myself. They were about having experiences and making the most out of life. Within that week, I learned so much about sharing. They didn’t have a mean bone in their body, and like the Grinch’s heart grew, so did mine.
From the cookout to the rocket launch, from Reggae Sunday to our beach day, I never want to forget those special moments. Wherever you go, you will have a friend in me.
I’ve invited them back to the boat later this year for some Caribbean sailing. And just as I hoped, they have already started a list of what will be needed in the boat’s galley to continue our daily routine of starting with a great breakfast.

Doing what they do best, smiling, laughing, and dancing.

Thank you Philly, and thank you Coco, Hanna, and April, for being you.

    1. They brightened up every room they walk into. I hear rumors they are thinking of meeting up with the catamaran in Bermuda for Carnival!

  1. Lucky to be friends with April and Han. Undisputed L E G E N D S in Philadelphia!! Reading about how positively they affected your life out of the blue is beautiful, and it reminds me of becoming friends with them for the first time.

    Here’s a fist bump and a big ol HELL YEA. KEEP IT GOIN!!!!

    1. Thank you for taking the time to comment. I can say that the boat was brighter with them aboard. I started this project to create a safe space for people to be themselves. Mix in a little travel and adventure and the results are smiles. All are welcome, as we are just getting started. Maybe we’ll get to meet each other as the catamaran will be making a stop in Philly this summer!
