About

In 2017 we quit our jobs, packed up our stuff, and moved aboard a tiny sailboat - a 26ft catamaran called Kittiwake. We've sailed her from the UK to the Mediterranean over 2 sailing seasons, learning as much as we could.

We then sold Kittiwake to buy our dream boat - a Tayana 37 from 1976. We've been refitting Skua, the Tayana, to go bluewater sailing. We aren't the average cruisers - our budget is £500-700 a month and we work freelance from our laptops every week to keep going.

We're recording our adventures to share what we learn along the way and hopefully inspire other people, because anyone can do this! We like to keep things real; we want to show you what it's truly like to live aboard. We'll share the mishaps, the silly mistakes, and the good times. 

We'd love to have your support to help us keep up with our video production costs (from upgrading our filming gear, to paying for our huge internet bill). Your contribution will also help us sail further, to undeveloped places where we cannot work every week.

Here's how it works:

  • You decide how much to donate per month and can stop anytime
  • If you sign up you are only charged for future episodes. 
  • Oh and we only charge patrons for episodes.
  • By signing up, you will gain access to extra videos and updates we release exclusively for patrons.

Cheers guys!

You can also find us on our blog, which is packed with advice on how to start sail cruising yourself:


P.S. if you're not ready to commit to a monthly donation, you can support us through a casual one. Read more on that here: http://sailingkittiwake.com/support-us/.

Goals
$414 of $1,000 per video
When we reach this goal, we will upgrade our main camera to bring you higher definition videos. We'll get the full kit: lenses, filters, tripod, and more.
Ever since we started filming, we've used entry-level mirrorless cameras to stay on a budget. It's time to upgrade to a serious camera and bring you higher quality videography.
