About the Owners

Geoff Dyce and Sidsel Grimstad-

Pauline Wilkinson and Mauro Migliorelli- "We started our cruising life in 1986, left Australia and cruised Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Borneo, Philippines and Hong Kong on S.V. "Lorelei II", a hard chine, Breekveldt steel sloop, built in New Zealand. The second Lorelei was a Tayana 37 cruised in the U.S.A and Mexico from 1996 to 1998. S.V. "Shadow of Lorelei" is a Lord Nelson 41, built in 1986. She cruised the U.S. West coast and South Pacific, New Zealand and Australia with her previous owners. Mauro fell in love with her in Brisbane in 2004." You can read all about their adventures on their very good blog.
