It was 20 years of dreaming and building Mimi Jane…

From the yard, to the water

2022…. She was launched

2022 was a very special year for the Mimi Jane crew; it was the end of a long boat building journey and the start of a new exciting adventure on the water. There is so much that could be said about that crazy year but I will limit it to saying thankyou to everyone who was there, close and far; thanks for following us, thanks for cheering us, thanks for crossing our path and thanks for sharing time with us. It all matters, as much in the moment of joy as when we face challenges. 2022, you were challenging but amazing.
