    Going Slow - S4E6

    Going Slow - S4E6

    The concept of time in this sailing lifestyle is completely different than it is on land, which is why we do it right? But wow, what a transition it is understanding how to take time as it comes and learning to slow down, versus what we are used to doing on land, which is finding ways to better manage our time to be more productive.

    And We're Off - S4E4

    And We're Off - S4E4

    We finally left the docks in Porto Montenegro and arrived in Croatia on our catamaran. We are working through some technical problems with our watermaker but enjoying the early sailing season with virtually no crowds at all in Croatia...so far!

    Unwintering - S4E3

    Unwintering - S4E3

    It's been a busy couple of weeks here on AWEN as we unwinter the sailboat in preparation for leaving the dock later this week to start our sailing season in the Mediterranean. Lots of things to do to get the boat put back together and everything ship shape while we pray to Helios and Poseidon for warm weather and calm seas to arrive in the Eastern Med.

    We're on a Boat! - S4E2

    We're on a Boat! - S4E2

    Back on SV AWEN and making the transition back to sailing life on our catamaran, and the anxiety of not getting hit at a boat dock again. It's really strange to wake up and realize we slept that night on a boat! So grateful to be able to be here staring at our long list of to-dos as we prep to leave for our sailing season in the Mediterranean.

Fantastic podcast!

I’m planning my own family’s transition to boat life and find “Hope’s” voice to be a fantastic resource. I’m only on episode 5 and I’m totally hooked!

Interesting perspective and have largely enjoyed it, however, please stop talking over everyone.
