About Us

Compass Rose is a Dickerson 41 ketch. We are her owners, Jackie and Eric. We often refer to her as Little Rosie.

We rented the house and put what little furniture we didn’t sell into storage. Join us as Little Rosie takes us to adventures in warmer climes.

Do you think this surprised anyone who was at our wedding? Here we are cutting our cake.

Probably the only Thomas Point Lighthouse wedding cake ever made

    Great website! Glad you are enjoying, as we did/do. We’re in Bequia headed north slowly. Let’s make sure we keep in touch. Hey, our home in Fort Pierce is available to you if you need a vacation down the east coast. Just let us know and we’ll tell you how to find the house and the key! LOL P.S. Not sure we have your latest email address, please email same. Thanks, our love to both!

    2/11/11 Jackie, i am SO bummed that I missed your call!! If there is a way to respond or contact you, let me know!! I tried the number on the phone, but no luck–I figure it is a phone card! Looks like you’re having a great time!!!

    Eric: Crikey! Been a while since Stoney Creek in Galesville. Too long on the hard, but I’m still kicking in the latest iteration. I hope all is well – certainly looks rather enviable, as I reckon you’ve sussed things out. Take care, and best wishes, Joe
