sara johnsonI’m Sara, a sailor who loves to write stories and make pictures. Originally from the Pacific Northwest, our family of four moved to New Zealand in 2012 by sailing our home across the Pacific Ocean. Visit to read about our family’s journey and our life in New Zealand.

I especially enjoy writing about traveling with children, sailboat cruising, and all other aspects of life afloat. I also write about what it’s like to do all this while living with type 1 diabetes. My stories and photos have been published in, Cruising World, Blue Water Sailing, Pacific Yachting, Latitude 38, 48 North and more.

My books!
