This website will be a chronicle of the adventures of David Lowrie and Katharine Lowrie (nee Land) and their lives aboard the good ship Lista Light. Lista Light sails the sea with winds in her sails. Solar power, tow generators and wind turbines top up batteries. If you would like to contact Dave or Katharine in the meantime, please email us and we will respond when next at port!
