The Duperraults were a lovely and active family who enjoyed spending time together in the outdoors. Arthur Duperrault wanted to take his family on a year long adventure aboard the Bluebelle. The family set sail on November 8, 1961 from Ft. Lauderdale, FL en route to the Bahamas for a week long sea trial. The sailboat was captained by Julian Harvey.
