To our Vancouver Island friends watching us on SHAW TV, we hope you subscribe to our channel and then go back and see how this whole adventure unfolded (right from our last days in Saltair near Chemainus) by watching our earlier videos on Youtube.
In 2012 while living in Saltair on Vancouver Island, we started the discussion about our passion for travel and our passion for sailing.
Could we do both? Could we sell everything and safely sail around the world? Well, around the world seems like a long way and there was sooooo much to discuss about making this life changing, well... change.
In 2015 we decided to sell almost everything we had in search of a simpler life. We traded it all for a life free of Big Box consumerism and the gerbil wheel we were caught up in.
We chose to school our son Cole ourselves taking in cultural adventures every chance we got, and we have been loving the life ever since...
Come along and see what it's like living a simpler life aboard a sailboat. Come with us as we explore new countries, dive into new cultures, meet new people, and try new local foods. Live vicariously through our eyes as we meet the challenges of living a life on the sea...

This website tracks all boats by using their AIS signature. Not all boats have an AIS transmitter, it's usually an upgrade larger boats tend to have and Saltair 3 does.
Type Saltair 3 into the search bar and you will be taken to our last reported location. Click Past Track and find out where we just came from and where we are now!
NOTE; As we get farther and farther away from land our AIS signature will fade but it will come back the closer we get to land.
