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 captain) 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 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! Share the adventure with us!

Teleport from drone camera - Click for full-size.

What with the crane nearly overbalancing lifting Teleport onto her home-made cradle in Cambridge Bay in the arctic in 2011, and last year one, then two then three daisy-chained trucks trying to drag her out on a modified fishing-boat trailer in Nome, we were a little apprehensive motoring towards the haul-out ramp here in Seldovia, Alaska on Tuesday evening at high tide. We needn't have worried however, as despite the boys having only ever lifted out one sailboat before (and never using their fa...READ MORE >>

Grizzly Bear eating salmon - Click for full-size.

Amazing. I never dreamed that Jess and I would ever be sitting with our cameras atop comfy sailboat fenders on the banks of a river-delta filled with salmon, surrounded by scores of Grizzly Bears pouncing on them, at times so close that their lunges splashed us! That's how it was for 3 days in Geographic Harbour - one of the biggest highlights of our sail this year! There was one other large boat in the bay when we dropped anchor, and having spotted bears on the shore we wasted no time in fli...READ MORE >>
