The Crew Pulsar is sailed by a family of four. We also have friends and family join us sometimes. Karri Alderson Co-Captain Karri was a librarian before casting off to her own adventure story. She’s been sailing since the late 2000s and is originally from Idaho. Graham Alderson Co-Captain Graham worked in tech and decided to step out and do something different. He’s been sailing since the late 2000s and is originally from Washington. Kirsten Alderson First mate Kirsten is 15 and loves sailing. She handles the sails beautifully and is the go to person for sail trim on board. Tom Alderson First mate Tom is 16 and likes to be at the helm steering the boat. He’s excited to learn more about the culture everywhere we go.
