YouTubers: Sailing Kittiwake


As I have mentioned, I do watch a lot of sailing youtube channels. Because, yes I still have a job that I need, so do live through these channels! Tho, I have a big ocean trip coming up, but more on that later.

No caption needed, really!


Anyways, like the sailing crowd, most of these channels seem to think the only way to do this is with big boats and big budgets. So, I do prefer the smaller, resourceful travellers that can still do it.

I gotta say, these guys have really become my favourite channel: Sailing Kittiwake.  First about their channel, yes they the usual travel videos, which I really enjoy. But, I would say, that they also give back to the community by discussion sticky topic, such as the loo as the Britons say, and somewhat reluctant subjects: budgeting, working while sailing.

Their blog is also quite useful and very well written, check the blog here.

They bought a boat, a small, older, catamaran (Heavenly Twins) for about 10K GPB and refurbished it.

Also read an article that Elena (I can call her just Elena, right? I feel like I know Ryan and Elena like friends! Hahaha!) just published about their coming to sailing.

If you cant tell, I'm a fan, so "chapeau", keep doing what you are doing! Also, their patron page is here should you wish to support them too.

Cheers!

Start 2.0 for couple who sank their dream

Well, all is well (I wont say end well yet), as the couple that sank their, and literally everything they owned a couple of weeks ago.

Happy family


So generous soul who
sold them his cherished 1985 Cheoy Lee Pedrick 36-foot sailboat the Odyssey for $1 after reading they’d come from Colorado, like he and his wife, and had a 2-year-old pug, which reminded them of their old pug, Chow.

All the details here. Interesting article that also details what happened with their GoFundMe and Facebook pages. Let's just say people can be mean.

I am happy for them, but hopefully they are more careful this time, and hopefully they take some sailing lessons.

Cheers!
