About us

We are the Young Family and we traveled from New Zealand to Italy and bought a Catana 42.

We have named her Paikea and are currently sailing the Mediterranean and getting used to our new home.

Paikea needs a lot of work before we can sail her back to her new home in New Zealand (she is an old girl after all). Luckily we are in no rush! Homeschool for the kids and our work with www.syasperformance.com fills the spaces between repairs, sailing and exploring.

We are slowly discovering a work/ life balance that fits our family. Cruising is not always easy and sometimes it’s just plain scary. But great things never came from comfort zones…
