Robert & Virginia Gleser

Virginia and Robert Gleser have just completed their 19th year of cruising their Islander Freeport 40, ketch, “Harmony,” from San Francisco to Mexico and beyond to Latin American and Ecuador. They have been married for 48 years, and have raised 8 children. When their last child went off to college in 2000, they sold their business and headed out the Golden Gate and turned left to cruise in warm climes. Virginia has written the book entitled “Harmony on the High Seas, When Your Mate Becomes Your Matey,” that has earned rave reviews from the cruising community.
