Come join my wife and I as we learn to sail and have new sailor experiences on our new Whiting 40. We are a brand new sailing couple, and have fallen in love with the sport. Many sailing lessons have been learned so far as we learn how to become sailors. 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 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!
