|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.
We are presently in Southeast Asia and
have spent several months (late 2016/early 2017) doing some maintenance and
repair work on Slip Away in Malaysia. We are planning a trip back to
the USA in the Fall, then some cruising in 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!
