Devon grew up sailing on Rocket Science with her family. Rocket Science is a Riptide 55, custom designed by Paul Bieker, a well known Naval Architect/Engineer in Seattle, at the request of Devon’s father. Launched in 1995, Rocket Science has been around the world several times and won various ocean races. She is currently owned by TJ and Jenny Durnan who are living aboard as they cruise the world.
