Hello - Thank you for coming here!

What is Sailing Britican?
Since the beginning of 2014, my family and I have been living full time on our boat, Britican (British and American). My family consists of my husband, Simon (49), and my daughter, Sienna (5), and me (41...I think!?)

After eight years of building a company I felt burnt out. Instead of staying in a job I didn't like, I sold all our possessions and purchased an eleven year old Oyster sailboat. Since we left, I've been documenting our journey through articles and videos.

Readers and viewers benefit from the following:
  • Explanations on how and why it's beneficial to sell up and sail away
  • Learning from our mess-ups rather than making them yourself (we've made many!)
  • Reduced fears associated with becoming a full or part-time cruiser - fears about sailing, homeschooling (our daughter was 3 1/2 when we left land), safety, the overwhelming amount of things to learn and much more.
  • Videos about popular marina's, anchorages and destinations so you know before you go
  • My sincere feelings about what it's like to drop out of the rat-race and live the dream...It's not all good but it's definitely fulfilling.
  • Easy to make recipes that work well on a sailboat!
  • Tips, tricks and things that the salty sea dogs fail to tell anyone (Did you know that painting your prop with egg whites works just as well as using any expensive store bought solution?)

How often do we post?

Ever week we publish at least one video and one article on https://SailingBritican.com

How does Patreon fit in?

Patreon is an awesome website that allows people to support content creators. We're spending a small fortune keeping the boat serviced, maintained and repairing breakages. All our money goes into keeping Britican running. When it comes to making videos, there's a whole host of other costs and they add up. Just getting Internet to upload a video can cost quite a bit. And then there's the cost of camera's, software, data storage, hard drives, hosting fees, education, necessary apps and the list goes on. For as little as $1/month a patron can support someone like us to keep creating and making better articles and videos. 

Why support Sailing Britican on Patreon?

Because we want you to be a part of our family. Over the years we've discovered that there are people that like to watch us from a far and there are those that like to get more involved. Simon, Sienna and I are super passionate about sailing and the sailing lifestyle. We're eager to get more people out on the sea and we're happy to share with you everything we know and are learning.

Some people think that Patreon is a platform for beggars or people that need money to live. I see it as an environment where Patrons can help support an artist, or artists, grow and develop. I also see it as a place where people can get more involved with the artist and help not just financially but with advice, feedback and any other support.
