Living the dream - Paul Major

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:07 pm on 22 September 2014

Imagine selling your house to sail around the South Pacific for nearly 10 years. It sounds like a dream for many, but it is the reality of Canadian natives Paul and Mary Major. They first arrived in Nelson five years ago and have sailing right around the country in that time. But Paul and Mary are swapping our Nelson, for a town called Nelson in Canada very soon.

They are aboard their 12 metre catamaran Bella Via currently anchored in Oneroa in preparation for the Auckland boat show this week.
