Welcome Aboard Yacht Teleport!

Ahoy there! Chris Bray and Jess Taunton here - two young Australian's, sailing the adventure of a lifetime! Having bought a tired old yacht in Canada in 2009, we spent three months in 2010 rebuilding her, named her 'Teleport', fell in love, and are now sailing her home to Australia, as slowly as possible, via the world's coolest & most remote places. In 2012 we became the first junk-rig (& youngest couple) to sail the infamous Northwest Passage in the Arctic above Canada! Considering as Jess had never sailed before, and Chris had to read up on junk-rig yachts and rebuilding and hand-starting single-cylinder boat engines, we've learnt lots already but can promise the next few years will be just as exciting, scary, heart-breaking and hilarious!

Teleport for sale - Click for full-size.

S/V ‘Teleport’ for sale $45,000 USD After months of contemplation about what to do with Teleport next year we have made the very hard decision to put her up for sale! It's not an easy decision to make, we really have been 'living the dream' for the past 5 years being able to take months off work each year and sail her that little bit closer back to home. However, we dream of other adventures too, like kayaking around remote islands, cycling across counties or hiking through jungles, but ever...READ MORE >>

Our first dawn at sea for 2015 - Click for full-size.

We've learnt that you've not only got to juggle the weather, daylight and huge 20+ft tides around here, but also the spectacular currents they can create, up to 4-5kn in some places. Apart from being almost impossible for us to motor against, a current like this can pile even a modest swell up into something truly daunting. It's all part of the game up here though, and so far, we've done well, timing our departures to try and arrive at strong currents and passages when they're flowing in our ...READ MORE >>

Jess trying to pick the lesser of various evils of tinned SPAM to stock up on - Click for full-size.

It was starting to get cold in Australia, so Jess and I've flown North to exchange the bitter Aussie winter for another northern summer aboard Teleport here in Alaska! The problem is, despite being summer, it's even colder here! We flew Sydney --> L.A -> Seattle --> Anchorage, where we met with inspirational young sailing couple Seth & Ellen who are returning to their own sailboat in Dutch Harbour. We lent them some charts for their next adventure - follow them at READ MORE >>

Chris & Jess\'s Crazy Wedding Adventure - Click for full-size.

We finally tied the knot!! When our flights home from Alaska were cancelled three days in a row due to fog, we were beginning to worry we might be late for our own wedding! However, eventually we made it home to Australia with just 5 days to spare before heading off on our adventure wedding! Our wedding was held at a secret destination - not even the people coming knew where they were going! We just told 20 of our closest friends and family to pack four days of warm clothes and meet us at...READ MORE >>

Humpback Whale Breaching at Sunset - Click for full-size.

We didn't stay long in Seward, just long enough for a hot shower at the Harbour Masters, get a shrimp/prawn licence, and marvel at the endless rows of motor-homes and the giant cruise ship that we mistook for an iceberg on the way in. For a bit of much-needed exercise we jogged up the mountain towering over the port, up and down which they have a famous marathon every 4th July 'Independence Day' - quite the event apparently, and the town was in full swing getting ready for it as we refuelled nex...READ MORE >>
