Ahoy!

Thanks so much for taking the time to check out our Patreon Page! We have such wonderful Patrons supporting us on this adventure... Our Crew ROCKS!

To introduce ourselves we are James and Kimmi, the Crew of Zingaro. James is en ex-Navy submariner from Seattle, and Kimmi is Berlin-born with seawater in her veins. We met in Mexico, and for the last 1.5 years we've been cruising on our 1984 Crowther catamaran. We've been falling deeply in love, both with the places we visit and with each-other, and this sailing journey for two has grown into a journey for many thousands!

We are documenting our EPIC voyage around the world to inspire and show what it really is like to sail. It's not all Beaches, Bikinis & Beers - it's more Ripped SailsBroken Rudders & Maintenance! But we certainly don't want to de-motivate anybody to get out there, quite the opposite! We try to motivate and prepare everybody that wants to join this wet wide world of sailing. If you share this dream, you can learn from our mistakes and our "LVB-Series" until You cut the lines yourself. 

For the rest of You, we promise to entertain with our constant struggle. With us, You will get to see underwater and Drone footage of remote places. You will get to know the people we meet traveling around the world and their cultures. It won't get boring. The Drama is always there with us.

In any case, becoming a Patreon of ours means that You will be the first to see our Videos, we will keep You up to date (we are a few months behind on YouTube), You will have access to exclusive footage of our everyday life, private livestreams, and Patron-only giveaways. You become part of our CREW!! 

If it wasn't for all your help, we would not be able to produce these videos. You make it possible for us to stay on the boat together and take our work with us. Yes, it is work. A lot of it. More than both of us would have ever expected... but YOU GUYS make everything worth it.  We've gotten some messages of people that bought their own boats and said that we've been the motivation. How rad is that?

We thank you for sharing. Thank You for the support. Thank You so much. To all of You! 

Fair winds and following seas.

Zingaro OFF the GRID
Crossing the Pacific has been the goal since the start. Now that we have crossed it halfway and already spent months away from civilization, we know exactly what we lack to stay out in the WILD for as long as we please:
  • a unsinkable dinghy
  • wind/hydro generator
  • a new battery bank
  • a solar drier
  • electric outboard
To improve your viewing pleasure we decided to invest in:
  • an underwater case for our sony. 
  • a stabilizer
  • a camera that shoots in the ever-sought-after, sexy slo-mo.
  • new lenses, always need new lenses!!!
We all came this far. Why not dream big and go all the way? I'm talking Patagonia, Japan, The Kimberleys (AUS), ...
You guys are the best Crew that we could ever wish for. Thank You for being awesome!
For further suggestions please shoot us a message on Patreon :)
