Hello everyone!

We are a couple of permanent live-aboard sailors who sold everything, bought a boat and went sailing.

We initially built NOFOREIGNLAND just for fun, to help a bunch of live-aboard sailors track one another's positions as they departed their winter marina in Sicily and headed off for their summer season in the Mediterranean. During that summer, word about our site spread quickly and before long dozens more boats had registered.

We spent the following winter listening to feedback from those that had signed up, building new features and improving the place information on the map. The next summer we started sharing links to the site on social media inviting all to sign up.

Since then, NOFOREIGNLAND has grown very quickly. There are now hundreds of boats all over the world using the site, and there are thousands of visitors checking out our place information each month.

Our hobby has turned into a great resource for cruising sailors.

As the site has grown, so has the cost of running our servers. So far we've paid for this ourselves, but in order to keep the site running, we now need a little help from you: the sailing community.

We intend to keep the key features of the site free. However, in return for your patronage, you will gain access to a host of excellent exclusive features allowing you to get just a little bit more out of our site. We want to be a community for all sailors, no matter how big their wallet, so pay what you can. Show your appreciation with a small donation (choose the budget option) or make a big gesture and enable yourselves and another boat access to our exclusive features (choose to be a hero).

Thank you!

Tiers
Budget
$2 or more per month

If you're a budget conscious sailor, and our standard tier is a bit of a stretch for you, then this tier might be your best option. 


You'll get access to all our standard tier features, but without breaking the bank.

Standard
$5 or more per month

We need your help to keep our severs running, and our site free of advertisements. Our standard tier means that your donation will be a significant help...


As a patron you will unlock the following special features for your boat:


  • A custom short URL with your boat name:
    https://www.noforeignland.com/your-boat-name/
  • Offshore tracking (Iridium GO!, Satellite phones, Garmin inReach, Email)
  • Extra boat photos on your boat page
  • We'll let other users know you're supporting our site by including the Patreon logo on your boat details page


In 2018 a survey found that the average price for a pint of beer (bought in a bar) across 48 countries around the world was $5.70. The survey also concluded that none of the beer sold could be tracked offshore.


For full details of all the additional features (and for those we plan to release in the near future) see the Patreon help page on the noforeignland.com web site.

Hero
$10 or more per month

If you can afford a little bit more, then why not be a NOFOREIGNLAND hero?


As a hero you get all the benefits of our standard tier for your own boat plus any other boat you choose.


Even if you don't have a boat of your own, this tier allows you to 'gift' our features to any boat you choose. This could be a great gift for a family member, a friend, or for anyone whose adventures you are following.

Superhero
$25 or more per month

Ok - now you're talking - this is a really serious donation!


Of course you'll get the benefits of the other tiers plus we'll give you 10,000 user points in NOFOREIGNLAND, promoting you directly into the officer's ranks.
