What is a working jib? Why is a working jib important to us as sailboat travelers? We sit down with Precision Sails for a quick discussion on the benefits of a working jib, how it compares to other sails, and why its an important sail for sailing offshore in a sloop. We're focused on the working jib, but really this is a discussion about headsails, genoas, and sailing performance!

We're the Fosters, and we just sold our house , purchased a sailboat, Cadence, a Catalina 387, and sailed away from land. We're on a journey to minimize our life, learn to live on a sailboat, and travel the oceans.

OUR STORY https://thefosterjourney.blog/
LIVE MAP OF CADENCE LOCATION https://thefosterjourney.blog/map/
HOMESCHOOL https://thefosterjourney.blog/how-to-homeschool-on-a-sailboat/

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 via sailboat, and so am I.

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 in these weekly episodes as we take this journey into the unknown, and share some laughs along the way.
