Sojourn is Indeed SOLD !

It was a bittersweet day for us today, as we officially transferred ownership of our beloved Sojourn to her new owners from Southern Illinois.

We told them when they flew in two weeks ago to put the ship through her paces on Charlotte Harbor, with one of the most thorough marine surveyors we’ve ever met, that we were auditioning for just the right kind of new owners. They passed with flying colors.

I know that sounds a tad arrogant, but if you’re a long-time follower of this blog, or have read one or both books I’ve published about our love affair with this ship, or are one of the many ‘friends of Sojourn’, you know Kay and I have treated this grand auld lady like a blessed member of our family for the last rather eventful one-and-a-half decades.

We bid her adieu, and we wish her new Captain and Admiral all the best with their ‘new’ ship. Mac & KC, you already know that you’ve acquired the embodiment of an inestimable piece of history (at least for us). I guarantee she will change your lives with her substance and grace, as she has changed ours.

So long, Sojourn. And thanks for the countless memories.

Signing off as we turn the page,

Cap’n Geno and Admiral Kay
