|Welcome to the Slip Away website. We are
Captains Rich Crowell and Jan Schwab, and Slip Away is our 1978 Islander
Freeport 41' ketch-rig sailing yacht. We left Los Angeles (Marina del
Rey) in 2003, and our long-term plan is to spend the next several
years exploring the world.
Slip Away is presently in Southeast Asia
(Malaysia), and we
have spent several months (late 2016 and first half of 2017) "working on our
boat in an exotic location." We'll be back in the USA late Summer and
into Fall, returning to Malaysia in November. After that, our
plans are to cruise Malaysia and Thailand in late
2017/early 2018, and if all goes as planned, we will cross the Indian Ocean
to South Africa in 2018.
We keep a log of our travels and photos on
this website. We hope you enjoy it!
