Live Your Dream. Sail around the world.

Lessons Learned Living on a Boat

The boating community is full of friendly people. Everyone waves. Everyone talks to each other on the dock. Travelling by boat is optimal; You simply move your house to the next bay, next cove.

Desolation Sound Bliss

New to this site? Start with what we’re up to and why we’re trying to Sail Around the World. We’re currently anchored with a stern line to shore in Prideaux Haven. Its a very quaint little place.
