The Novaturient Mission

The Novaturient mission is to:

  • Explore and discuss the subjects of sailing, the power of the ocean and outdoor adventures to refresh the human soul, and the forces of change and personal transformation.
  • Uplift myself and others with humor, compassion, and gratitude.
  • Live and love to the full.
  • Be a thoughtful steward of life’s resources.
  • Lead by example.
  • Keep going and keep growing!


  • Keep the people and pets on the boat.
  • Keep the mast up, keel down, and water out of the boat. 
  • Be the most prepared.
  • Do the least harm. 
  • The rest is small stuff!
