    Greetings! I learned about this blog through Nicole “Coley” (And what a talented, beautiful and popular young lady she is!) because I am recently now part of the Culinary Content Network. I live in Annapolis as well and have a galley cooking food blog, We have a J42 that we keep in Spa Creek. We used to live aboard a Panda 38 where we had our first daughter. I feel we need to meet! I would love to connect! Galleypirates@ or

      Hi Sydney. What would be the nature of your conversation? Just to share info about your line? If it is a sales call, I’ll take a pass.

  4. Sorry, I missed this, we are working to save the oceans and also have a nonprofit that does water testing for Berkeley Labs and we are also partnering with a company in San Francisco that provides nets to pick up plastic in the ocean. We do beach cleanups monthly. We are putting together a gallery of photos of plastic pollution in our waters that we want to have travel to schools and libraries. We are asking sailors to submit their photos. We are doing many things. We also make beautiful sailing clothing that is sustainable and made in LA. We are trying to spread the word throughout the sailing community. Not sure if that helps.
