How do I prepare for an offshore passage? It's a big question - It's not easy crossing a large ocean or to take your first multiday offshore passage - but we recently had our first, and these are our 5 best preparations for sailing offshore. We had many projects before setting sail, but these were our top 5 - the offshore preparations that helped us the most. Each sailboat and crew will be completely different, so I'd love to hear what your top 5 offshore sailing preparations would be! Leave your thoughts in the comments.

Who Are We?
We're the Fosters, and we just sold our house and purchased a sailboat, Cadence, a Catalina 387. We're on a journey to minimize our life, learn to live on a sailboat, and sail away.

In 2019, Matt quit his public education career of 15 years, and went full-time building his own business. Olivia is ready to explore the world, and so am I...but first, we have to save up, learn about sailing, and figure out a way to leave land.

We're sharing this journey with you in hopes that it'll bring you a smile, provide something helpful, and maybe give a bit of inspiration to live life on your terms - to explore your world.

Join us as we take this journey into the unknown, and share some laughs along the way.
