My fiance, Adam Blake and I, Olivia de Soria, recently came into the possession of a sailboat. We are lucky enough to both have flexible schedules, I being a self employed metalsmith (www.oliviadesoria.com) and Adam, the owner of a gutter cleaning company (www.ashevilleguttercleaning.com). We split our time between our businesses and our adventures. After we became the proud but skeptical owners of The Frog, a 28 foot Newport sailing vessel, our adventuring has taken a more nautical turn. We have had no experience sailing, and now here we are, learning as fast as we can! The quicker we learn, the sooner the Frog will be sailing along the clear blue waters of the tropics.
