Behind the scenes access

$2
per creation
This tier is like a little way to say "hey, I watch your videos, I like what you do, keep doing it." Aladino and I get so excited whenever we get a new $2 patron. We even have a special call for it. Whoever sees the notification first loudly sings "$2 patroooon!" in a special kind of tone. Then we hug each other and send off a quick message of thanks to the new patron. 


With this tier, you get:
Access to "Maya's Journals." The journals are published every Tuesday, and give you real time insight into what we're doing! 
Access to Patron-Only Bonus Videos and Live Streams, whenever we post them. 

Meet and Greet

As we sail slowly around the world, we want to meet you!! We've already met a few patrons, and it's been amazing every single time. You guys could all create YouTube channels yourself, you've got some good stories to tell. 


So with this tier, we invite you to...


• Come on board! At this tier, you'll get access to posts announcing where we are in real time. If you can make it, you're invited on board for a drink, a boat tour, and a chat. Only available for $5 and up patrons! 


Includes all rewards from previous tier as well!

*Please note that this does NOT guarantee a visit on our boat, this is only when/if available*

Handwritten post card!

I love post, so I'll be sending you a postcard from wherever we are in the world! Please allow at least 1-2 months for delivery!

About Sailing Magic Carpet

Meet Maya, Aladino, and Magic Carpet. 

Maya is Canadian, obsessed with sailboats, and loves to play the violin. 

Aladino is Swiss/Italian, a boatbuilder by profession, and an incredible sailor. 

Magic Carpet is a 28ft Vindo 32, a Swedish boat that, four years ago, fell 20ft from a crane onto concrete. She was an insurance right off, destined for the junk yard. But, Aladino bought her and spent four years giving her a new life. Now she's our home. Together we document our journey.

Our videos focus on the beauty of sailing. We are both magnetically drawn to the water, and we use words and music which try to convey this. We hope our videos give you a sense of serenity, joy, and inspiration.

What can we offer YOU?
1. Weekly real time journal entries to update you on our trip and give you some behind the scenes perspective!
2. Personalized advice from Aladino the boatbuilder –– within reason please, we're happy to answer questions but not to become full time consultants!
3. We occasionally send out random handwritten letters from wherever we are in the world... you'll just have to wait and see if you get one! 
4. The chance to have direct input into our voyage. We take our patron's advice seriously!
5. All of the additional bonuses listed in the "tiers" section

Our goal is to help you in whatever way we can. We want to interact with you. Most of our patreon rewards, especially at the higher tiers, are designed so that we can get to know you. We'll write you letters or talk to you on the phone! 

The community we have here is EXTREMELY valuable. We want to foster our patreon community as much as we can to share and get inspired together. 

So, if you're here, maybe you're considering joining our community and contributing to this adventure. We want to make sure you get something out of it, and you feel good about your decision to help us. Things to know: 
• We offer exclusive content and access to all of our patreons. 
• You can CHOOSE how many episodes you sponsor every month! We usually post four videos a month (one a week), but if you only want to sponsor one video, we are still extremely grateful for that! 

Goals
639 of 1,000 patrons
Wow, 1000 patrons seemed like such an impossible goal just a few years ago, but now it's slowly coming into sight and it's amazing. At this level, we'd be able to refit our boat to IDEAL standards, rather than "most cost-effective" standards. That means more well produced videos about boatbuilding how it should be done. Aladino's boatbuilding creativity won't have to be limited, and my filmmaking creativity won't have to be limited either. What a dream. Thank you for helping us get there.
