Ep. 16 - The Reality of Working While Sailing - Sailing the Spanish Atlantic Coast

October 21, 2018

Working while sailing is not easy at times, but it gives us the opportunity to live our dream of sailing around the world while also continuing with the reality of the necessity of work. Fortunately, we both have jobs that allow us to work remotely. Come along with us as we take a break from our high-adventure, blue-water voyages to simply sail along the gorgeous Spanish Atlantic Coastline. We do some anchor hopping and let Cap’n Jack and Scout play on the beaches while we catch up on a little work. Check out our cool DRONE footage!

Ep. 15 - Sailing the Bay of Biscay on a Good Day

October 7, 2018

Sailing the Bay of Biscay was a sailing adventure that created challenges and struggles along with excitement and reward. It was difficult, to say the least. Even with favorable conditions, we sailed across the infamous Bay of Biscay during the worst possible time of year. But even on a good day, The Bay of Biscay is ruthless. At times, it was a glorious passage filled with playful dolphins, a whale sighting, a full moon lighting our way each night, and bright sunny weather. At other times, the constant pounding of the 3 to 4 meter waves rocked our bodies and our minds. We battled seasickness, exhaustion, and dehydration, but we made it 362 nautical miles in 80 hours to A Caruña, Spain. This was the one passage Michelle feared the most. We now know first hand why The Bay of Biscay has such a feared reputation. Read Michelle’s logbook entry for the real nitty gritty about this adventure!
