PASSAGE PLANNING for NOOBS (Safety, Equipment, Navigation) | Ep 9 Sailing Pivo

In this episode, we go through how to passage plan. We are planning for our first long sail to Great Barrier Island, New Zealand, and we expect it to take anywhere from 10 to 20 hours. We go through some of the things we are doing for basic navigation (Navionics is the best, hands down), good seamanship in terms of training the crew in emergency drills such as man overboard (MOB), weather monitoring (through Windy), food provisioning, safety gear, and many more topics. Check out our timestamps below for a specific topic.

We also do a wee review of Behemoth Brewing Company's 'Murica American Pale Ale (APA). Food match with buffalo wings, hotdogs, chilli, mac and cheese.

We are just starting to learn to sail and having so many new sailor experiences on our Whiting 40. We are a brand new sailing couple, and have fallen in love with the sport. Our first mate, Pivo, keeps us out of trouble and is also learning along the way.

We are starting our voyage 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! 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!
