The Donnelly family is Jim, Jan, AJ, Lucky the dog and Sid (he who never dies) the cat who are all currently together on the Great Loop.  We left on 7 Maryland the plan is to is to take a year(ish) to explore and enjoy.  We are on our PDQ36 sailing catamaran, though we know that we will be puttering along at a whopping six miles per hour (or less) for most of the time.  No worries–we aren’t in a hurry!
