Family of four with Maine roots drops anchor in Portland after journey of a lifetime
Since 2011, Tucker and Victoria Bradford sailed around the world with their children.

...The Bradfords’ adventure required a leap of faith. Tucker left his job near San Francisco in information technology at the SETI Institute, a nonprofit scientific research center. In a blog he kept during the trip, he lists the uncertainties of embarking on such a journey, chiefly walking away from a job of 10 years, liquidating some retirement funds and “the omnipresent possibility that our tiny home and everything that we own might be destroyed by the force of nature.”

Yet he also wrote: “It just seems (we are) living the life we were made to live.”

Tucker was born in Damariscotta, grew up in Washington, D.C., and Massachusetts, and summered in Maine. Victoria grew up in Kennebunk. She realized at age 16 she wanted to sail around the world after a course at Outward Bound, and Tucker knew from summers sailing with his dad, Vern, on their 26-foot sailboat off Round Pond in Muscongus Sound along Maine’s midcoast.
