2018 Wooden Boat Festival has ended

Behan Gifford

Behan and Jamie circumnavigated while raising three children aboard Totem. When they set off from the Pacific Northwest in 2008 aboard their Stevens 47, Totem, Niall was 9, Mairen was 6, and Siobhan was 4. Since then they’ve visited 48 countries/territories, from Mexico to Madagascar to Martinique and continue to cruise in the eastern Pacific. Jamie is a sailmaker and recovering racing sailor with 100,000+ miles of diverse experience on the water; Behan found sailing the perfect vehicle to satisfy her wanderlust. She is a co-author of Voyaging with Kids, the de facto guide to cruising with children; together they provide coach/mentor services to help people realize their cruising dreams.
