Don Reynolds grew up in North
Eastern Ohio. He joined the Navy after high school, and served on the aircraft carrier America for 2 of his 6 years of service.
While ship board, he traveled to England, Spain, Italy, Turkey, Israel, Crete, Greece and the UAE. He fell in love with the
ocean and life aboard ship. The remainder of his service took place in Guam, Hawaii and Japan. He is by nature a philosophical
student, and will research in-depth all manner of spirit and human thought.
Diana Reynolds also grew up in Ohio and graduated from Malone College. After
high school, she traveled to Nicaragua and Guatemala to do volunteer medical work. Over the years she has traveled throughout
the U.S. as well as to England, Scotland, Mexico, the Bahamas, Australia, Canada and Bonaire. Diana was introduced to sailing
in the early 80s, and immediately fell in love with it. She gained eclectic experience in both racing and cruising on many
different types and sizes of sail boats. She received her PADI open water certification in 2000 and immediately traveled to
Australia to dive on the Great Barrier Reef. She is an adventurer by nature, and strives to be a traveler rather than a tourist.
Don and Diana enjoy many sports
and hobbies that are synonymous with the cruising life. They are both PADI Rescue Divers, working toward Dive Master Certification.
They enjoy bike riding and spent a great deal of time on the Ohio & Erie Canal Tow Path trail. They also both enjoy taking
photos and Diana specializes in underwater photography. Don is an avid fisherman who practices the catch and release method.
They were married in Re Metau's cockpit, concluding the ceremony with a rising full moon and a pastel splashed sunset.
The honeymoon has never ended.
