Sailors Are SO SUSPICIOUS! | S01E07 Sailing PIvo

This episode is about some of the sailing and boating superstitions we have learned about. Watch this video to learn how you can make sure you do not have bad luck on your boat, and to bring good luck to your boat! Some of the sailing and boating superstitions are weird, some of them interesting, and some of them are down right sexist! Ha, but it was fun to learn none-the-less

We are learning to sail in New Zealand where we have been living for the last 4 years. But we are going zero to cruising because we're from the mountains of Colorado and have zero experience! Our first sail was with the sailing school, Great Escape, up in Opua, New Zealand (home the 2021 America's Cup). We hope our lessons from a beginner sailor will help you also as we set out on a multi-year sailing adventure around the world.

We hope to become a fulltime sailing / cruising family soon, as we love the sailing lifestyle so much! We love traveling, meeting new people, and seeing the world. We hope you come along for the adventure!

Thank you so much for having a watch! Please like this video and subscribe to our channel!
