from Australia (2009)
Tackless II was sold in 2009 in Australia. Don and Gwen are back in the U.S., but still having fun!!
aboard! This site is the communications home port of Captains Gwen Hamlin
and Don Wilson and the sailing yacht TacklessII
. Like any good home port, this site is for family and friends to hang
around and catch up on all our latest doings which may include voyages
to interesting places, stories about people met, sagas in the engine
room, or new discoveries in the galley!
TacklessII is a CSY 44 walk-through, cutter-rigged sloop. From 1996 to 1998 she was operated as a dive-sail charter yacht in the Virgin Islands. The charter business was previously operated for six years on TacklessIIs sister ship, Whisper, a CSY 44 walk-over model. Both boats were extremely successful and are proud to boast over 250 alumni charter guests whom we expect will be among those following our exploits on the site!
In 1999, the two captains left taking a well-earned sabbatical or is it "seabatical." We’ve been cruising full–time, and so far there is no end to the journey in sight! But the hosting instincts of charter die hard, so we have devised this way of taking you along with us.
So pop open a cold Amstel or a whip up a tall tropical cocktail (what home port would be complete without a good watering hole!), and lets catch up.
