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. 

2016:  We are presently visiting the USA (May to October) while Slip Away spends time in dry dock in Malaysia. 

We keep a log of our travels and photos on this website.  We hope you enjoy it!
