About the Crew

family cabin

The crew of Yahtzee is Andy, Jill, Porter and Magnus Cross. 

We bought Yahtzee in June 2012 and immediately moved aboard at Shilshole Bay Marina in Seattle’s Ballard neighborhood. In September 2014 we gave up our slip at Shilshole, sold our car and headed north for the San Juan Islands.

We’ve spent the last few years cruising full-time in the Salish Sea and racing in various events as we go. In April, 2016 we sailed down to the Columbia River and cruised as far up as Portland before participating in the 40th Oregon Offshore Race from Astoria, Oregon to Victoria, BC. From Victoria, we spent three months cruising around Vancouver Island and are currently enjoying fall in Puget Sound.

Life is slow and we absolutely love it! Check out some FAQs, and follow us on Facebook.

The Salish Sea and Vancouver Island is our home and playground.

  1. I have enjoyed your e-newsletters and am pleased to learn that I can still find you in
    Blue Water Sailing. Best to you and your family with your cruising adventures. We started our two at 3 and 4 on a Cal 20. We were not live aboards but the way the kids talk, you would think we were. We are now introducing sailing to our grand kids. We returned to the Chesapeake Bay in the fall after cruising New England waters on our Sabre 402 for 13 summers. Good luck and smooth travels.
