S/V Kairos

We purchased Kairos in December 2015 and moved aboard on New Year’s Day. At that time she was known by a different name, but we decided to change it to something that was more meaningful to us.

The ancient Greeks had two words for time. The first being chronos, which refers to chronological or sequential time. The second being kairos (pronunication), meaning the right or opportune moment (the supreme moment). This pretty much sums up this moment in time for us. We believe that this journey will be our kairos in more ways than one.

Below is a little bit about our new home.
