About Calico Skies Sailing
THE BACK STORYWelcome!! We are Grace and Bill, and our story begins in College where we first met. Our boat story began just a few years later when Bill, who learned to sail from his Grandfather as a child, had the idea that instead of going the traditional route and saving first for a home we should buy a boat to sail now: A time when working long hours in NYC and living the rat race made us desperate for escape on weekends. Well those weekends eventually turned into summers, when we'd give up our apartment to live on Calico Skies, and instead commute into the city via Dinghy > Car > Train > Subway. 'Crazy boat people' to some, but for us the seed was planted. We knew we had a well built and solid boat, but once we realized that we could really LIVE on her than the big dreaming began.
WHERE WE ARE NOWIt's been just over three years since we pulled the plug on land life and quit our jobs. We're living an alternative lifestyle where travel, adventure, and simple living is an everyday reality. At times difficult but at others intensely rewarding, our lives have been changed entirely. We've been enriched by the people we've met, we've learned new skills, pursued new interests, and the challenges we've faced at sea have made us stronger and more confident, both individually and as a team. We strive to live each day to the fullest, push our boundaries, and nourish the part of us that wants to see more, go further, and achieve our goal of sailing the globe. We do not want to see this dream end.
THE ART OFThis is where you come in, because sharing our experience has quickly become an avenue that brings us immense joy and satisfaction - It helps us connect with friends and family who want to experience life through our eyes but it also connects us to new people, something that really makes us thrive. It's also brought us closer together creatively. Expressing ourselves and sharing our adventure through the art of video provides us an outlet to inspire and encourage others.
WHY PATREON?Boat life, by nature, is slow and so is the process of video-making. Our goal is to provide you the highest quality content while we inspire, entertain, and connect with each one of you sweet souls. But that takes time and what we need is your support to help keep our this dream alive. If you'd like to become a member of the Calico Skies family you can do that through becoming a Patreon or simply by following us on Instagram or Facebook - We are grateful beyond words for your feedback, support, and love, in whatever form that takes. May the adventure continue!!
- We'll purchase underwater equipment to get much higher quality footage of the amazing underwater world, one of our most favorite places to spend time.
