About us

Welcome to the cruising blog of the good ship ERIK.

Soon you’ll find photos and discussions of our yacht and her systems, entries about the destinations and anchorages we visit, commentary on cruising with kids and a blog of our journey as it unfolds!

ERIK is an Atkins Eric design, rigged as a Bermudan ketch. She has full and gentle lines, making a seakindly home for our family.
