We are Chase the Story (Ryan & Tasha), a young couple sailing around the world on a catamaran, bringing a fun-loving and ragtag crew along for the adventure of a lifetime. We've already sailed s/v Cheeky Monkey over 5,000 miles from France to the Mediterranean then across the Atlantic to the Caribbean. Next up? Sailing across the Pacific Ocean!

So why go the Patreon route? Well, it turns out video production is expensive! In the six months since we launched our first Chase the Story video, we’ve lost a few good cameras to Neptune, bought (and broken) a drone and guzzled countless beers in pubs with WiFi as we waited for our videos to upload…very, very slowly. We have also opened our boat up to an adventurous bunch of video-creators, which means more frequent and better videos for you, but more mouths to feed as well.

Help us maintain working equipment and we’ll keep the videos coming! Your support is what keeps us going when this whole endeavor of video-making at sea seems like an impossibility. It’s been amazing when supporters have tracked us down in anchorages, bought us a beer, given us a hug and told us how much they love Chase the Story! The enthusiastic support and appreciation we’ve gotten so far is what’s made this whole endeavor worthwhile.

So THANK YOU from the bottoms of our hearts. Whether you become a patron or not, our videos are free and available on YouTube, and we enjoy creating them. We can't thank you enough for supporting what we do and continuing to come along for this wild ride.

Love,
Tasha & Ryan

Goals
$172 of $900 per video
Help us continue to bring you the most awesome sailing videos!

Your support will mean we’ll be able to improve our videos. We’ll buy the lens we need, an image stabilizer and we’ll be able to keep our drone flying to get that awesome aerial shot of the remotest atolls in the Pacific. Your support will also allow us to bring along the crew to keep the videos coming – both the quality and frequency depend upon them!

So THANK YOU for helping us reach our goal :-)
