Beginning January 2020: John travels the world in his beloved sailboat, Ave del Mar.

Six years ago, in a boatyard in Reedville, Virginia, John Herlig​ stumbled across a tatty old sailboat called Ave del Mar.  On the surface, she was in pretty poor shape but her bones were good and John saw great potential.

Slowly, painstakingly, John brought Ave back to life and now he has embarked on a voyage around the world.

This is a story about second chances and about how an unexpected discovery led to a new lease of life for both a 1967 Rawson cutter and her former restaurateur owner.
