About

Perhaps fear and uncertainty doesn't rule our lives when crossing oceans but it crops up often when we think about our future.

What causes someone to sell everything and embark on an mission to sail around the world? Be at the risk of pirates. The ravages of storms.

We’re not much different than you. We fight. We make love. And we have dreams. The only difference is we acted on one dream. The crazy dream of sailing around the world.

Why? It’s only natural to ask why would anyone give up the security of their home and job? Leave family and friends.

March 2008. We got the news. Ashley’s father had stage 4 cancer. Terminal. Life expectancy between 4 to 6 months. From the perfect life, nearing retirement with 4 kids to dead within 12 months at the of 52. It was a hard time. It was the biggest wakeup call of our life; You may not grow old.

Dreams are a funny thing. They’re exactly that. Just a dream. Until you act. And acted we did. For the next 7 years we worked like crazy. Started businesses. Consulted. Hustled. Scrounged. Sacrificed. We saved every penny. Then we sold up. Sold the house, car. Even the winter clothes went out the window.

We’ve been out here for over 4 years now. Boats are expensive. The salt and sun corrode everything. Things break. What we thought would last 5 years only lasted 3. Which brings us to phase 2 of this dream.

Instead of going back to desk jobs, we propose this:

Can we make films to inspire you? And teach you everything we know about offshore cruising, systems, sailing, and living aboard longterm.

What do you think?
Goals
55% complete
We want to finish sailing around the world and there are incredible stories to be told!

Currently we are half way. If we are going to make a living at this we need to upgrade our camera gear and ensure we never need to take a break for desk jobs. We need your support.

(pssst....We occasionally have patron-only draws to have you and your partner down to the boat. Show you the ropes and give you a taste of what longterm cruising is actually like.)

You in?
