Hopefully, this is the first of many in-depth conversations we’ll share in 2023.  And we’re starting off with our new friends Frank and Mary Grace aboard HH55 Ticket To Ride.  We spent a couple of weeks with them in the Tuamotus looking to gain some experience and insight regarding performance cruising.

They also started off in a great production catamaran and then moved on to a performance cat.   Spending time with them felt like a peek into what our own journey may be like.  And we wanted to know a lot more about that evolution.

Because there is no such thing as a perfect boat, but there are different boats for different types of sailors, for different types of cruising, and for different seasons of life.  As a sailor evolves, so does their boat.

So, grab a beverage and settle in for an insightful conversation about the evolution of these sailors.

More about HH Catamarans and our HH44 :

Why Curiosity2
Self-Reliance + Sustainability = Freedom
Self-Reliance: To rely on our own resources and limit our need for a marina or fuel dock.
Sustainability: Thinking about what we do today and how it will affect next week, next year, the next decade, and so on. It’s the recognition that we’re all part of a living system and that everything we do impacts the world around us.
In other words, we want to be out in the world living and exploring for as long as possible. Both in terms of not having to worry about our resources or our habitat disappearing.
It's practical, not political.
This new HH44 is the continuation of that conversation and desire. This is not the ultimate, all-time perfect eco boat or zero-footprint anything. Not even close. It’s the best option that we could find working with viable, available solutions. It’s the type of innovation we want to support, encourage, and see way more of.
We're super stoked about getting into the world of Performance Cruising and hybrid electric sailing with our new HH44 catamaran. HH catamarans have a reputation for building the best luxury performance sailing catamarans in the world. And now this is a brand-new boat designed from the ground up with solar, hydrogeneration, and electric motoring in mind. Add in our rain capture system and we have the ability to be off the grid and explore incredibly remote and uninhabited areas for months and months at a time.

WE’RE JASON AND NIKKI WYNN. A couple of modern-day documentarians, perpetual travelers, and seekers of tall tales.

We’ve been chasing our curiosity around the world on wheels and keels since 2011. Why? Because curiosity is the key to unlocking life. It pushes us outside our comfort zone, softens our assumptions, and helps us embrace the great unknown. The more we let our curiosity lead the way, the more we discover about ourselves and the world around us.
Our journey is ever-evolving but the mission remains the same: #CultivateCuriosity
