Hello. My name is Rob Leighton. I have been sailing and building boats since I was 10 years old. I am now taking a break from boat building and presently sailing across the Pacific from Seattle to the Philippine Islands. Several years ago in 2013, I purchased the schooner Megan D. We purchased her for the reason of sailing to south east Asia to help people in need that have been hit with natural disasters such as typhoons, and also teach them about taking care of the environment so that it can protect them from this type of calamity.
