Aloha e' Komo mai!
Welcome and come aboard.
This is the Log of the Sailing Vessel Lealea, recounting our cruising life; voyaging, sailing and living aboard a small boat. Join us as we search for peace, health and the simple joy of living.
Our operating philosophy, borrowed from Lin and Larry Pardey, is “Go small. Go simple. Go now.”
Our vessel is the Albin Vega diesel auxiliary sloop Lealea, 27 feet on deck, 8 feet beam and 4 feet draft.
Our goal is to challenge ourselves and our vessel and by so doing learn and grow; to share our experiences and the lessons learned through our videos and written logs; to promote small boat cruising in general and the American Vega Association
For more insight into the cruising life or to simply give advice please visit our blog found in The Logbook
or you can also follow and comment with us on Facebook or Google+.

We created Lealea's Book Locker to provide a list of recommended books for sailors or those who's dreams are of the wind and sea. We consider many of these books to be a "must read" for any prospective boat owner or cruiser.
