The Mission

We’re working on this page!

Learn and Document

We actually didn’t know anything about liveaboard sailing coming into this and didn’t save enough money or prepare properly. However we had the drive to persevere and launch madly into this change of lifestyle. We want to document as openly and honestly as possible what we learn along the journey, from exact costs to experiences and mistakes. We want to have a portfolio of videos and photos that we can look back on in later years and say “yeah we did that”.
