Hello! Ciao! Hallo! Hej! Salut! Hola! Hei! Oi! ΓΡια σου! Merhaba! Moikka! CzeΕ›Δ‡! こんにけは


We are Chris and Rossella and, together with our baby girl Emma, we LOVE making sailing videos! As well as sharing the beautiful anchorages, beaches, and sunsets we experience along the way, we also make informative videos to help you achieve your own cruising dreams.




If you are new to Patreon, here is a 90 second video explaining what it is and how it works:





We almost stopped making sailing videos when Emma was born. We had worked very hard on our YouTube Channel up to that point, and already had thousands of subscribers. We had spent $$$$ on equipment, and a huge amount of time making videos, so we knew how difficult it would be to continue. At this incredibly precious moment in Emma's life, finding 30 hours to edit each video - whilst at the same time working on our freelance "day jobs" - was completely unsustainable.

This might seem incredible, but on average it takes two hours of editing time to produce one minute of our sailing vlogs!



Up until this point our passion alone had driven us to make videos. However, in order for us to be able to continue, we had to find a way to allow our viewers to help us continue our passion in a sustainable way. Patreon was the answer!





We opened this Patreon page just after Emma was born. Then something magical happened... wonderful people like you started joining our community here. People like you started to give us the gift of time!

This changed everything for us! There was a way forward for us to continue making videos. With each person who joined our 🌟Patreon Crew🌟, we could eliminate the need for us to do an equivalent amount of our freelance work.

To this day every single time we receive an email from Patreon saying that we have a new Patron our hearts sing with joy! It is the most tangible way you can let us know that you:

  • Value our work.
  • Believe in what we are doing.
  • Really want us continue making our videos.Β 

Β  Β  β€οΈπŸŽ‰πŸ€ We LOVE our Patrons! πŸ€πŸŽ‰ ❀️


We reply to each and every comment on our Patreon Page, and every single private message. We can't guarantee that on any other platform, but our 🌟Patreon Crew🌟 are very special to us and we love to read and reply to all of your comments and private messages here.





If you have ever felt inspired, entertained or informed by any of our videos - or if you want to help us keep making them, then join our amazing 🌟Patreon Crew🌟 and help us continue pouring our hearts and souls into making videos!

By joining our community you will help us in so many ways:
βœ”οΈ Replacing lost and damaged equipment (Like the camera we dropped in the sea whilst filming some boat handling).
βœ”οΈ Buying better equipment so that we can improve the quality of our videos.
βœ”οΈ Most crucially you will be giving us the gift of time which we will use to create more videos for you.

You won't just be helping us - you will also help us make the world a better place! We have partnered with a non-profit organisation and we are planting 10 trees for every $1 pledged to us from new Patrons joining our 🌟Patreon Crew🌟! So far we have planted 3,000 trees and, equally as importantly, we have provided jobs to poor villagers, who are employed to plant the trees. As well as looking after our own interests, we are also doing lasting good for our planet in the process. 🌳🌳🌳 For more details about this, check out this post:
Sailing Britaly Tree Planting

By signing up:
πŸ—οΈ You will get a ton of rewards, which get increasingly more exclusive with each reward tier. πŸ—οΈ
🀩 You will make our day! 🀩
βœ‰οΈ You will immediately be able to send us a private message which we always reply to. βœ‰οΈ
🌍 You will know that our planet will benefit from some extra trees, and there will be some very grateful villagers in Nepal, Madagascar, Haiti, Indonesia or Mozambique, who will be employed to plant those trees on your behalf. 🌍

Thank you! 😊
Chris, Rossella & Emma

p.s. We have written a post to help you get the most rewards possible. See how you can 'Jump Up' a reward tier, at no extra cost, by reading this post:
How to Maximise your Patreon Rewards (at no extra cost to you!)

Frequently Asked Questions:

Do I have to pay in US Dollars?
No - Pay in any currency! As this is a US-based website, everything is written in Dollars, but you can use any currency and it will be automatically converted.

How many videos will you release a month?
We will never charge for more than 4 videos per month, even if we release a video every single day! You can also set a maximum on your pledge when you sign up so you'll never go over your budget. We welcome this and in fact we actively encourage you to do this! (See below)

How can I "Jump Up" a tier without it costing me any more?
We actively encourage all of our Patrons to do this as we want you to get the maximum possible value! So here's how you can do that... Pick the higher tier you want and set your montly maximum of videos supported to just 1. This means you get the higher tier, but you will only be charged for a maximum of one video per month. Here is a page showing you exactly how to do this either when you first sign up, or retrospectively after you are already a Patron. How do I set a monthly maximum to my membership?

I don't have much money, can I still become a Patron?
Yes, please only sign up to pledge what you can easily afford. Even $1 per month adds up, and is greatly appreciated! 😊

Can I stop pledging in the future if I can't afford it?
Yes of course! You can log in to change or cancel your pledge whenever you want.

I'm still confused. Can you help me?
Absolutely! If you have questions about using Patreon or encounter any problems with the signup process, the Patreon support team is really friendly and helpful! You can send them a message by clicking here. If you have questions specifically about our page or rewards, our videos, or just want to say hi, you can send us a message directly via Patreon's messaging facility the second you become a Patron! (We always reply to our wonderful 🌟Patreon Crew!🌟)

βœ”οΈ Email consultancy You can contact us via email with detailed questions about anything you think we can help you with:


  • Buying a boat (The two of us were boat dealers for a few years, so we learnt a lot about buying and selling boats...

Given the sums of money involved in a typical boat purchase, this knowledge is VERY valuable...)
  • Technical help - Chris has lots of experience: http://www.linkedin.com/in/christopherbarruk/ and can help you fix most things on your boat / car / house / underwater robot / plane / helicopter! [Yes, seriously πŸ˜‰]
  • Questions for Rossella - Rossella has a Masters Degree in Economics and International Management. We're guessing most people are more likely to ask Chris questions about their boats, but Rossella is also available to answer any questions you have. :-)
  • Baby on a boat advice...
  • Starting or growing your own YouTube Channel...
  • Financial freedom. We are happy to share the details of how are we able to fund going cruising for long periods and help you do the same.
  • Anything else you can think of!


We will assist you to the best of our ability, spending considerable time in doing this, via email. This is not just 'answering questions' we consider this a real consultancy service. [After 4 processed pledges. Fair usage policy applies]

You have incredibly generous and enlightened soul and it's a real privilege for us to get to know you and help you out in any way we can. We salute you! πŸ™

Goals
12% complete
Together all year!

The gaps in our videos (when Chris goes away to work) can now become a thing of the past... The income we get from the investments we have been slowly building over the years, combined with our income here on Patreon, will mean that the three of us are able to spend 365 days per year together!

At this point we can invest in some serious equipment to improve our video production and produce videos in 4K quality. To do this we will need a new main camera, a new laptop, and a bunch of extra hard drives. The video will be so clear you'll feel like you're on board with us!

Being able to be together all year is our biggest dream, and we will be able to take our channel to the next level when we hit this goal!
