About

Thanks for visiting our Patreon page and considering supporting our efforts!

After 2 years of cruising part time on our previous 35' sailboat (and documenting all of it on YouTube), we made the leap and went ALL IN.  WE SOLD EVERYTHING WE OWNED that we couldn't use aboard, moved onto a 46' sailboat and struck out to CRUISE THE WORLD FULL TIME!  We are Loren, Eric, 4-year-old Rivers Danger, and trusty boat dog Zeke, and we are the globe-trotting crew of SV Cecilia.  Our channel takes our viewers along, episode by weekly episode, as we search for our perfect boat, go through the complicated buying process, make countless upgrades and additions to fit her out for world cruising WHILE living aboard, then journey through the Bahamas, the Caribbean, and beyond. It's our mission to fully embrace the cruising lifestyle in the pursuit of fun, culture, sea, and bold life experiences...all while working aboard and trying to keep things afloat...AND bring our viewers along for the experience with vivid, honest, fun, beautiful, and educational videos of the highest caliber possible.

But traveling, working full time aboard the boat (Eric narrates audiobooks from an onboard studio while Loren handles the bulk of the video editing duties), and raising a 4-year-old while ALSO providing video episodes we're proud of is a difficult, time-consuming, and VERY expensive endeavor.  THIS IS WHERE YOU COME IN!!  By supporting us as a member of ANY of our tiers, you'll play a HUGE part in helping us pay for the camera and computer gear necessary to keep our videos cutting edge, as well as eventually allowing us the freedom to create these videos FULL TIME (or very close to it), meaning all of our creative/work efforts go to making amazing videos for you and others to enjoy.  Basically, you'll be helping us do what we love at the highest possible level.

As a hugely valued member of our Patreon crew, we're so happy to have you along with us as we conquer new challenges, meet amazing people, sail crystal blue waters (and some stormy and murky ones), and explore excitng new shores, all from a perspective few get to experience.  So take a browse through all of our membership tiers to see all the cool stuff we offer as thanks to our valued Patrons, including awesome SailAway swag, early content release, Patron-only content, Patron-only social groups, and MUCH more!  Thanks for stopping by and we hope you'll SailAway with us!  CHEERS!!

50 Patrons may not sound like a lot, but it's actually pretty tough to achieve and would be a HUGE step for us professionally.  This would allow us to invest in even better equipment both video and editing, so we can truly bring you the best videos possible.  We think it's very doable, and it gets us so excited and motivated to imagine such interest in our videos.  We just need a little help from you!  Join our crew and become a SailAway Patron!  We won't let you down!
