About me

Introduction Anasazi Racing is James Burwick, Somira Sao and their two small children Tormentina and Raivo Max (ages 4 and 2). They are a family of four, making long distance ocean passages on a 40' sailboat. They started their voyage in Portland, Maine (USA) and proceeded to sail trans-Atlantic to Cherbourg, France (21 days); then trans-equatorial to Cape Town, South Africa (32 days); then across the Southern Ocean to Fremantle, Western Australia (30 days). The sailing vessel, Anasazi Girl, is an Open 40 designed by Finot-Conq. She is a high tech carbon rocket-ship able to make fast long ocean passages similar to alpine climbers who climb light and fast. James is a professional climber/sailor with a vast foundation of experience in extreme environments. Somira is a professional photographer, adventurer and soon to be mother of three. The kids have sailed over 13,000 ocean miles; have descended Argentina's Rio Santa Cruz (400km from the Patagonian ice cap to the sea); have cycle toured Patagonia, Tierra del Fuego, the Atacama Desert, and Southern Iceland; and have traveled to 15 different countries.
