This boat will always be so special to me. This is me with Maiden before she set off. Love at first sight. As a 7 year old fan I followed her around the world newspaper cutting by newspaper cutting, glued to the tv updates and inspired by every mile. When I was 19 I finally got to sail her with the wonderful @nikkiando82 with me unceremoniously puking over the transom (the only time I've ever been seasick offshore...sorry Maiden). She and Tracy still inspire me today.
If you didn't see it and need a bit of motivation, I highly recommend the BBC4 documentary that was on last night about Tracy Edwards and Maiden. Amazing women. 👊🏻 #maiden #tracyedwards #hamble #hamblegirl #inspiration #girlsthatsail #femalesailor #whitbreadroundtheworldrace #uksailing #dreambig

I didn’t do the “normal” thing straight after high school. I wore boots instead of heels. I didn’t get to pick out what I wanted to wear for work. I wore a Navy Uniform. I had regulations and couldn’t paint my nails or do my hair the way I wanted. Self expression was limited (HINT on probably why I have SO many tattoos) it was the only thing I could do to that pushed the limits of self expression. 🤷🏻‍♀️😂 I protected your family everyday, and spent months/years away from mine. I spent basically 2 years out at sea working through holidays and had many sleepless days/nights. I couldn’t show weakness and worked twice as hard to be good as “the guys”. I lost pieces of myself that I’m still trying to get back till this day. Along with issues & pain I have to deal with for the rest of my life. I’ve done things that not most people do. & It is by far the most hardest and proudest thing I’ve done in my life. It made me into the Strong Woman I am today. I love being a Veteran and so Happy I served my Country.🇺🇸
:
Happy Veterans Day to All those Past & Present. Thank you 🖤 .
.
.
On another note; I hardly took photos of myself in uniform so I’ve literally been using the same ones for the past couple years 😂

PSA for Veterans today when it comes to meals just because it’s “free” please be kind & leave tips for the servers. 💁🏻‍♀️

@joanmulloyracing for feature in The Weekend Magazine about 6 brave irish women that conquer the sea. Joan is the first irish woman to sail solo around the world. No surprise there, she is also a descendant of the famous pirate queen, Grace O’Malley.

Made a decision in 2007, that I am forever proud of. I’ve met so many brothers and sisters in arms that I am proud to have served with and still serve with. 10 years of service in so far and I’m excited to see what the next 10 plus years bring! God Bless America and the Men and Women who protect this great country! 🇺🇸

Did you know??? Yes, the hands behind all of the products at MaWAhh are the same hands of a Navy Senior Chief Petty Officer in the United States Navy! I joined the Navy in September of 2000 & continue to serve alongside my Sisters & Brothers.
My sister has been in the Army for 12 years and counting. Both my mom and dad as well as two of my aunts have served 20 or more years of military service. That’s me in the picture with my parents peering at the cake. And of course me again many years later. A life of military service to this country is a portion of family legacy for us. This Veterans Day, I honor everyone who had served to protect our rights and freedoms!

A wonderful book from one of the first female sailers Lilly Braumann-Honsell on the Lake Constance: „Bodensee ahoi“. It describes a sailing trip on the lake. First printed in 1936 or 1937 it contains very nice pictures from the lake area of that time. Text and pictures are absolutely delightful!

The ship shown here can still be seen nowadays on the lake. It is the „Bayern II“ from the Lindauer Sailing Club LSC ... still participating in races!
The third picture shows fishermen in front of the island of Reichenau.

An interesting detail of the book: on the cover it looks like somebody has written „Bodensee ahoi“ in ink and in an old German handwriting . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Von einer der ersten Seglerinnen auf dem Bodensee Lilly Braumann-Honsell ist dieses wunderschöne kleine Büchlein 1937 mit dem Titel „ Bodensee ahoi“ erschienen. Es beschreibt einen Segeltörn auf dem Bodensee und beinhaltet schöne Fotos vom Bodenseegebiet. Sowohl der Text als auch die Bildtafeln sind toll! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Das Schiff, das man hier sieht, segelt noch heute auf dem See. Es ist die „Bayern II“ des Lindauer Segler Clubs LSC, die auch heute noch an Regatten teilnimmt. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Das dritte Bild zeigt Fischer vor der Reichenau. ⠀

Ein interessantes Detail auf dem Cover dieser Auflage von 1937 : es sieht so aus, als ob jemand mit Tinte in Sütterlin den Titel von Hand geschrieben hätte. Weiß jemand zufällig, ob das bei allen Exemplaren dieser Auflage so ist oder nur bei einzelnen Exemplaren?

--Suckle (1) - Sailor -- 'Just strolling around Wuhan (武汉市). Near the PLA Naval University of Engineering. Ha... Hooo... Don't mind me... 😏 Definitely not trawling for sailor honor guardsmen. 🎶No, sir. 😏 Not me.🎶 Oh, look there. A strangler.'

Salty, freezing, and exhausted. Our autopilot broke during my watch in the middle of the night : AGAIN! Autopilot is arguably the single most important piece of equipment on a sailboat. It’s like having another crew member. It has a huge job to do.
We chose to “heave to” until the sun came up since it’s advised to never enter a marina at night . “Heave to” basically means that you oppose your sails against each other allowing your boat to “park” in the middle of the ocean. So we floated and waited through the night , wading through the the thick fog , watching out for ships until the sun rose . We left San Diego 1 hour behind the rest of the 130+ sailboats , (because we found a rip in our sail at the last minute) so we have been pretty much alone out here .
I’m not sure if I should look at all of these incidents as “signs” that this isn’t meant to be or as “obstacles”, and we should continue to persevere . I don’t know if we can continue on though ☹️. Sigh

Good Morning World🌎
This past weekend my friend took me on a tour at his command in Camp Pendleton, California
A command where a mentor of mine was stationed at as well and always told me how much he loved it
When joining the Navy you have many opportunities in working in different type of platforms, and commands from all over the world (trust me the Navy has the best duty stations 🏝 🌴 🌊)
Especially if you decide to make it a career
If you ever want to work on these bad boys
Join the Worlds Greatest Navy 🇺🇸⚓️🌎 Assault craft Unit is the United States Navy's operating unit for the Landing Craft Air Cushion (LCAC) it’s a hovercraft the Navy uses
their mission is transporting, ship-to-shore and across the beach, personnel, weapons, equipment, and cargo of the assault elements of the Marine Air-Ground Task Force.
As I said before the Navy can do it all from Air, to sea and land!
What’s stopping you from being a part of the Worlds greatest Navy?

Gone fishing 🎣 “When I was in first grade my parents took me trout fishing. I was the only one in the family who caught one and I was over the moon. Our fishing guide said, “Just take it on over to the KFC and they’ll fry it up for ya.” (Remember I’m from Arkansas) So anyway, that’s what we did and that trout tasted awful and greasy after KFC fried it up. And I cried because I had killed the little guy, stolen his last breath, and I didn’t even want to eat him. I knew even at that age that we should not take an animal from this earth if we were not going to eat it. ⁣So by the age of 6, I was a mindless trout murderer.....” 🐠🐠🐠🐠🐠🐠🐠🐠🐠🐠🐠🐠Excerpt from: Spirit in the Sky

Her name is Fickle but it looks like Tickle or Pickle. I don’t mind . .

10/31/2015- Rogue Rum Run, aka the day I fell in love with sailing for real! Was blowing a gale out in #pugetsound so the race committee officially cancelled the race. Well, some of us in bigger boats decided that since we had already loaded up on provisions for the day we still wanted to go out. We went out on my friend Brian’s Wauquiez named Earendel and she handled it like a champ. He asked me if I wanted to helm and I jumped at the chance. Surfing that boat was such a rush, as was getting splashed all the way from the bow to the stern. Since it was Halloween and I love playing dress up I threw on the #skionesie for the race and it kept me quite #cozy. I feel incredibly lucky to be able to pinpoint on a calendar the day I discovered I really wanted to be a sailor. For those of you who love sailing, when did you know it was love?

But while man slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat
.

Though some days in the military are harder than others, I’m so blessed to serve in the capacity that I do. Seeing the USS Arizona (named after my home state) reminded me what’s at stake and why my job matters. I owe a lot to the navy, and a lot to sailors that came before me. ♥️🇺🇸⚓️

Got some good heavy weather aero training this morning, before jumping in to crew on a tasar for the first time in six months in the afternoon! The photo is from a few weeks ago with much sunnier weather. .

Got some good heavy weather aero training this morning, before jumping in to crew on a tasar for the first time in six months in the afternoon! The photo is from a few weeks ago with much sunnier weather. .

@sierrapaoli As bummed as I am that this was our last weekend together for a long time I know you’ll grow a lot as a sailor and see the world on deployment. You’re leaving just as we started getting close but that’s military life for you- having pieces of your heart scattered all over the globe. I’m so inspired by how passionate and driven you are and I hope you never let that fire die out. Fair winds and following seas- stay safe, stay focused, love you 🖤

Thanks @clipperrace for kicking my already quite strong #tea habit into an even higher gear. I often joke the the race turns us all into hobbits between breakfast, elevenses, lunch, afternoon tea, etc... It’s not just pigging out for the sake of it though, on active days it’s not uncommon to burn 4,000+ calories and they have to be replaced to be able to sustain racing like this! Sometimes we even get #cake with tea and that makes me a #happyunicorn

Who says I can’t do both? I CAN and I did... You absolutely CANNOT judge a book by it’s cover. Y’all swear you know me but you have NO idea. I served my country honorable... the 1%. One of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I’ve literally sailed around the world 🌎 and seen so many things and met amazing people. Eight years of service. Now I’ll be able to call myself a Veteran. #SailorGang #BeautyInBoots #WomenInUniform #IServe #USN #FemaleSailor #USNavy #DD214

“And one day she discovered her heart was full of fire, and that not even she could hold herself back because her passion burned brighter than her fears”•


I graduated master at arms training in 2017. For two years I tried to make myself walk down the path that other people had in store for me. More than anything, I wanted those close to me to be proud. I came up with excuse after excuse not to pursue nursing school and it wasn’t until I started listening to myself that I understood why. •


Moving to New Orleans I found out a detail that would re-lite a fire within. This base had a kennel. Being a military k9 handler was a dream that I kept to myself ever since walking across that graduation stage two years ago. But why? I could either try, and fail or not try, and live with that regret. I decided to try. •


I am SO excited to say I got accepted and welcomed as kennel support, working toward a kennel masters recommendation for k9 c-school. This is the first hoop of many I will have to jump through to eventually becoming a dog handler. I have never been so excited to try and I can’t wait to take you all along for the ride.
Ps/// yes I’m out of regs with my cover on indoors, I apologize😅

Salty, freezing, and exhausted. Our autopilot broke during my watch in the middle of the night : AGAIN! Autopilot is arguably the single most important piece of equipment on a sailboat. It’s like having another crew member. It has a huge job to do.
We chose to “heave to” until the sun came up since it’s advised to never enter a marina at night . “Heave to” basically means that you oppose your sails against each other allowing your boat to “park” in the middle of the ocean. So we floated and waited through the night , wading through the the thick fog , watching out for ships until the sun rose . We left San Diego 1 hour behind the rest of the 130+ sailboats , (because we found a rip in our sail at the last minute) so we have been pretty much alone out here .
I’m not sure if I should look at all of these incidents as “signs” that this isn’t meant to be or as “obstacles”, and we should continue to persevere . I don’t know if we can continue on though ☹️. Sigh

Home is where my boat is . If it’s meant to be, tomorrow she’ll sail her way to Mexico 🇲🇽. I’m feeling ALL of the emotions .
Her name is Fickle but it looks like Tickle or Pickle. I don’t mind . .

But while man slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat
.

Though some days in the military are harder than others, I’m so blessed to serve in the capacity that I do. Seeing the USS Arizona (named after my home state) reminded me what’s at stake and why my job matters. I owe a lot to the navy, and a lot to sailors that came before me. ♥️🇺🇸⚓️
