Somewhere in the World ....

Be part of our Journey

 The Rhumba ...... most people think of the slow passionate Cuban dance, but the word has a colorful history coming from two unrelated origins - one of African decent meaning celebration and another from sailing history used to describe  the course of a ship "Rhumb-line".


A Dance, a celebration, and the course of a ship ..... how perfect!  This is the life we aspire to!  We are Doug and Elena, a couple who are following our dream of living on a boat and sailing around the world.  We enjoy our "Rhumba" so much that we've decided to share  - and to invite people to be part or our Journey. 


Our Charter business is slightly different from most in that we are continuing our circumnavigation and are never in one location for more than a few months.  We are not a high volume business and carefully select our guests as surely as our guests carefully select us.  All our charters are multi-day all inclusive for up to four people.   


I hope you enjoy looking through our website!  If you have questions or are interested in joining us please send us an email  - we will respond as soon as possible.
