Hi, we are Aannsha and Barry, welcome to the Patreon page of Sailing A B Sea.

When our only son (Luke) moved out of our family home in 2017 to begin his own life adventure, we became 'empty nesters' at the ripe age of fifty-something and realising that old age was coming (as it is for all of us), we decided to create an adventure of our own.

We sold everything we owned in Australia, flew to Spain, took sailing lessons in Gibraltar and in April 2018 bought a 1995 Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 45.1. Neither of us had ever set foot on a sailing yacht prior to learning to sail and some might call that crazy, but Luke (and his friends) always use the acronym YOLO (You Only Live Once) and even though it was not part of our everyday language we certainly agreed with its sentiments.

We named our channel and boat A B Sea, because it included the first letter of our names and as total sailing novices it was like we were going back to primary school to learn the ABC, but with a nautical twist.

We also thought that if we documented our complete journey with all the ups and downs included, from renovating our home ready for sale, learning to sail, searching for our new floating home and finally just getting out there and doing it, we may be an inspiration to other people who were considering 'living the dream'.

We're not just a sailing channel, we're also about sharing the experience of different countries, cultures and people we meet. Scuba diving, crafting jewellery, painting and exploring the areas we visit. It's about our journey from being townies to liveaboards and everything that encompasses.

We love creating our weekly blogs and YouTube videos and Patreon is a way for us to continue to share our journey in a sustainable way. You can find out how Patreon works and what's it's all about by clicking here.

If you do decided to become a patron of Sailing A B Sea we want to say a big thank you right now, it is very much appreciated. And if you decide that Patreon is not for you, that's cool too, we still appreciate that you're reading our blogs and watching our videos, which will always remain free on our website and YouTube.

We also love your feedback, so do let us know if we've inspired you to start an adventure of your own or if you just enjoy living vicariously through our journey.

Thanks for reading to the end and remember YOLO!

Goals
9 of 100 patrons
We'd love to be able to film good quality night time video but none of our current cameras are up to the task. When we reach 100 patrons we'll begin researching, with input from our patrons, which is the best video camera to do the job and find out the best place to buy one wherever we are at the time.
