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!

Black bear catching salmon in Anan Bay - Click for full-size.

So it turns out that two and a bit weeks isn't enough to do much more than simply pick one of endless possible routes through the maze of islands that forms SE Alaska's popular 'Inside Passage'. We plotted a fairly linear path from our entry at Elfin Cove, down and out through to Prince Rupert in Canada, leading us via many of the not-to-be-missed hotspots recommended to us by various boaters. It's certainly a beautiful area, with a good number of whales, bears, berries, 4G cellphone receptio...READ MORE >>
