Safety Videos

A few years into our sailing adventure the cruising kitty ran dry, and we stopped sailing to work for a year in Australia.  A fellow cruiser gave us the idea to document our travels with YouTube Sailing Videos so we purchased a small camcorder and started making our own homemade sailing movies about our adventures Sailing Around The World.  To date we’ve published over 200 videos on sailing, scuba diving and traveling around the world by sailboat.  We’ve poured our heart and soul into them, and hope you enjoy watching as much as we did making them!  The videos are all FREE for you to enjoy!

We release a new YouTube Sailing Video every Friday, so be sure to subscribe!
