This is a blog about a trimaran named No Smoking. She was built in 1962, designed by Arthur Piver, in England, and shipped to America. The first owner just didn’t want smoking on her. Her unique name has stayed for nearly 50 years so we decided we didn’t feel right changing it. We believe no other boat in the world probably has this name, and we aim to sail the world over to find out!
Our first long journey as new owner of this beautiful creature will be from Block Island, RI, to the Bahamas. This blog will cover that journey and more.
We hope you enjoy it!
Here’s a picture of Rob and I from our family wedding luncheon on October 3rd, 2010:
And here is a picture of the real captain of No Smoking, unfortunately not attending the preliminary winter sail from 2010-2011, but will be on board thereafter! (this was actually taken on our first monohull sailboat, Serenity, back in 2009):
And here is the sister photo to the one which is the header of our website, both of them were taken by a new friend of ours Mami Taniguchi, who is pictured in Kris’ New York City photos!
Picture us — sailing away!
