Sue has lived aboard her Cheoy Lee Robb 35 yawl, Because, for 31 years along with husband Mike and two consecutive four-legged crew, Bosun and now Pogey, both Australian Shepherds. During that time they have cruised the Southern California waters while continually upgrading the boat. They have also crewed for friends sailing from So Cal to French Polynesia, doing the Baja Bash from Cabo to San Diego and sailing Alaska's Inside Passage, along with skippering boats on a few Share the Sail adventures. They are currently finishing their final (?) refit of Because and will head south to Mexico for a few years before deciding their next destination.
