Kayleen and Tyler are a seriously adventurous couple on a mission: they bought a 1981 42′ Tartan sailboat and they’re living on it while also refitting it for a multi-year sailing adventure to Mexico and possibly on to the South Pacific after that.

Kayleen changed careers from marketing to commercial diving so that she could work wherever they’re sailinh, and Tyler is a World Champion Para Snowboarder who’s about to compete at the 2022 Paralympics in Beijing, and in the summer he’s a skydiving instructor.
We loved getting to spend an afternoon with these two, and we hope you enjoy learning more about their story, their choice of boat, and all of the fun they have exploring.
But they also don’t sugarcoat the many challenges that come with living and travelling on a sailboat: winter storms, ice boxes, and expensive repairs, not to mention accessibility challenges for Tyler who’s a bilateral below the knee amputee./Exploring Alternatives
