Matt doesn’t always offer it up in every conversation, but he’s quite an accomplished sailor. He’s sailed over 10,000 nautical miles, with a good portion of those miles coming during a transatlantic crossing in 2019. He and three friends sailed from Boston to Bermuda to The Azores, and finally to Ireland between May and July of that year. Over the weekend, two of his sailing companions and their young daughter visited us here on Seguin on S/V Creeky, the Creekmore45 that they sailed for the crossing.

It has been very foggy with some pretty large swells, so the island was very quiet for a holiday weekend. It made for a nice time for us to enjoy the keepers’ quarters and share stories about the crossing, our separate adventures on the intracoastal waterway, and our more recent times living on shore. When the weather cleared a bit, we were able to hike down to the cove trail to collect snail shells and sea glass and visit with the seals who were watching us closely from the water just beyond the rocky shore.

This was Creeky’s first time to Seguin, but I’m sure not her last.
