For thirty years of ocean adventure on two boats, both built by Noel himself. Their first boat, Masina, was a 38' cutter in which they circled the world, compiling 80,000 miles. Their second boat, Masina, is a 53' yawl, in which they completed a 57,000 mile circumnavigation including visits to Labrador and Iceland and an east to west rounding of Cape Horn in gale force winds. The crew included their daughter, Sina, who performed gallantly during a near capsize when they were hit by a rogue wave off Cape Horn.
