Tasha Hacker
Tasha is a travel writer who became an English teacher and then a school owner but really wanted to be a ski bum and instead became a sailor and ocean racer. When her husband Ryan blurted out in 2005, "It's my dream to sail around the world," her response was, "That's ridiculous. Who lives on a boat?!" Which resulted in them not speaking. But the idea festered. And in October 2012, Tasha found herself sailing out of New York City with Ryan and their two cats aboard a Catalina 34 sailboat with an appetite for adventure and a blog called Turf to Surf. Next up, they're competing against each other in the Clipper Round the World Race.
