Sailing Vessel Horizon

Rafiki 35, Hull #12

'Horizon' transiting Pedro Miguel Locks, Panama Canal 10/93

When this site debuted in 1997 we had just returned from cruising and I was writing WXTide32. But life soon threw some spectacular curves. One result is Joyce and Pumpkin are no longer on Horizon's crewlist and now make their own wake.
On a sad note, Pumpkin, Horizon's intrepid boat cat, passed away on 10/25/2004.

This site is for and about sailing vessel Horizon, our 35 foot Rafiki sailboat. Most of the content is about her 5 year cruise from San Francisco, California through Latin America to Tampa, Florida. But we also have information about her crew, cruising experiences and her current refit for future adventures. I am only just now starting to rebuild this site after an extended period of inactivity so please excuse our construction e-dust.
