How is the Coronavirus pandemic affecting us as a sailing family? Well, we're currently in Spain - one of the most severely affected countries in Europe. When you live on a sailboat plans constantly change, it's just part of the lifestyle, but the recently declared 'state of emergency' here in Spain means for the next few months (when we would normally be starting the new sailing season) we may possibly be trapped.

We wanted to sail around the world with our family and nearly bought a Catamaran but decided it was not the right boat for us. There were many different reasons and some of these were confirmed by other Monohull sailors. Here we have a 'friendly 'discussion about the pros and cons and share our thoughts with you.

The current Greece / Turkey border crisis reminds me of our encounter recently at the Greece Turkey sea border off the coast of Kos. Not exactly 'Greece under attack' as some media reports have been saying but it demonstrates how it's not just about rubber dinghies full of immigrants or refugees. This jetskier easily evaded the Hellenic Coast Guard high speed boarder patrols, dropped off a passenger on Kos and returned to Turkish waters in the space of about 20 minutes! Now we're in Spain the border crisis feel just as bad with near daily Maydays on our VHF from migrant boats entering Spanish waters from Morocco. _________________ PLEASE NOTE: YouTube have disabled comments on most of our video blogs (and on other family channels) due to safeguarding issues regarding minors on the YouTube platform.

Life in a marina in winter isn't much fun - even if it is in the Mediterranean. We're spending our second winter in Almerimar after our attempts to sail the Atlantic last season were thwarted by maintenance and health issues. So we put the kids in a local bi-lingual school and slowly worked our way through our maintenance list. There were plenty of parties and BBQs with our fellow live-aboard cruisers between the storms and Santa even brought us wetsuits in time for a Christmas day swim... oh, and an Optimist Dinghy for the kids! A trip to Benidorm and a visit from a Spanish galleon made for a VERY enjoyable Christmas and New Year break, but it's now back to the grind before the new season begins!

We love sailing and so do the kids so we bought a new sailing boat! We also found that the local sailing club was more expensive, for 3 kids to sail for 2 months than buying a second hand optimist. We are so excited about this new toy and hope that it will provide hours of fun after their morning schooling..who knows, they may even enter a few races as we sail around the world.

In this blog I talk about preventing illness and injuries, how to prepare your boat in event of illness or accidents happening. This blog is also about things that can trigger anxiety for many people and a few tips on how to prepare, manage and cope with those feelings aboard a boat You would think that living on a sailboat would be conducive to a really healthy life and everyone would want to do it. It is active, out in the fresh air, you eat good food from local markets and the stresses of a land based life simply disappear. However, it might not be that simple....

This is a short review and Do-It-Yourself maintenance video on how to service a Honda 2.3HP outboard - one of the lightest and simplest outboards on sale today. It's light (only 13.5kg), air cooled (no impeller to change!) and has only one cylinder (only one spark plug to change)! Although other makes of engine in this class are slightly different, the main components are basically the same. Anyone with a reasonable level of technical ability should be able to service an outboard but please check you’re not invalidating any warranties first. And if you’re in any doubt, even after watching this maintenance video, then contact your local dealer or repair shop. _____________________________ PLEASE NOTE: YouTube have disabled comments on most of our video blogs (and on other family channels) due to safeguarding issues regarding minors on the YouTube platform.

This is the big question that everyone asks....how do you manage to buy a boat and then go sailing without a "proper" land based job? How much does it cost to live aboard a sailing boat and how can you earn money or boost funds while travelling? There is no single answer to this question but in this video, we look at how we managed to get a boat in the first place, what it roughly cost to do it up and what our monthly budget is for each category. We also give the percentage of costs we have spent in the last year, an amount per annum that you can estimate for a family of 5.

The second part of the highlights from our 2019 travel blogs. Sailing back from Turkey to Spain in 2019. If you missed the first one - watch it here: https://youtu.be/QsUtLueyKp4 Having sailed quickly from Spain to Turkey and visiting many interesting places in the last blog, we struggled sailing East to West with strong winds either on the nose or no wind at all for most of the way. A three week wait for good winds in Sardinia also put us way behind schedule and reduced our options for crossing the Atlantic. It didn't stop us visiting some spectacular places though, including Roman cities, active volcanoes and beautiful beaches. As with pt 01, we each had our own personal favourite moments and it was difficult to include everything. It's a shame YouTube's family unfriendly policy means we unfortunately haven't included many of the kids favourite bits - meeting up with other kids - as it would mean we have to re-categorise the video '..for kids' :/ You might also notice that the maintenance bits have been left out as we wanted a lighthearted retrospective of our journey - but look out for new dedicated maintenance blogs in the new year!

Some of the highlights from our 2019 blogs. Traveling from Spain to Turkey in 2019. We sailed quite far this year and visited many interesting places so we've had to split this retrospective into two parts, so watch out for #60 Best of the Blogs pt 02 - in the other direction - East to West! Even though we've tried to included the most interesting, popular and personal bits of life aboard our boat in 2019, it's impossible to include everything. We each had our own personal favourite moments. The kids favourite bits were meeting up with other kids, but YouTube's family unfriendly policy means we unfortunately haven't included much of that - shame. For Dad, the most 'interesting' moments were maintenance related, but for most people that's just boring, so they've been left out too.. but look out for new dedicated maintenance blogs in the new year!

It's the end of the season so time to winterise the yacht. Although we live aboard during the winter months the systems still need inspecting, checking and servicing.. and things need replacing. Winterising is all about readying the boat for the winter months - not to be mistaken for the 'winter maintenance list' which is all the fixing and mending that ALSO needs doing during this time.. a list that mysteriously gets longer no matter how many jobs you tick off the top of the list :/ __________________________ PLEASE NOTE: YouTube have disabled comments on most of our video blogs (and on other family channels) due to safeguarding issues regarding minors on the YouTube platform.

After an epic sail through the Mediterranean, from Spain in the West to Turkey in the East (and back again!) - through Greece, Italy, Sardinia, Balearics, Aeolian Islands, visiting ancient monuments and special Islands, we finally tie the sailboat up for winter. Because of medical problems, maintenance issues and general poor timing we've decided NOT to cross the Atlantic this season and instead use the winter to get well, catch up, fix up and mend! We take an unexpected skiing trip up the Sierra Nevada mountain range and catch up with old friends in Almerimar and weather the storms of a another Mediterranean winter!

Finally the wind turns so we can sail from Sardinia to Spain and Irenka reflects on what life is like on a sailing boat when you are away from land. We arrive in Formentera and rest before filling up with water and provisions in Ibiza and stay there to shelter from the storm. During the following week, we make the final passage across to mainland Spain and slowly hop along the coast to head South. The wind is rarely in the right direction but we still have a good time finding some great sheltered anchorages and end up in one of our favourite places called Cabo de Gato where we have a last beach BBQ . Because of health issues, we decide to stop in Spain for the winter to get medical treatment and all the boat maintenance jobs done to be ready to set sail for next season. We are a family of 5 and make our own electricity and water, homeschool the kids and do our own boat maintenance. Our dream of cruising and exploring the world's oceans is matched with a desire to live a more off-grid and sustainable lifestyle. A background as RYA instructors, flotilla skippers and RNLI crew only partly prepared us for the challenges of this live-aboard lifestyle!

We sail across from Italy to Sardinia and manage to avoid lightening storms and then fill up with water in the busy port of Olbia. Finding water is never an easy thing so we are very careful with how much water we use but this is quite tricky while keeping on top of the clothes washing with a family of five. We hang out with another boat family who we have made good friends with even celebrate an early Christmas with them as now that planse have changed, we cannot be with them in the Canaries this year. We cannot find a weather window to get through the Bonifacio Strait so we decide to head South and cross to the Balearics from there. We ride out a storm gusting up to 50 knots and get 3 visits from the coastguard to check our documents before finally heading in the direction of Spain. We are a family of 5 and make our own electricity and water, homeschool the kids and do our own boat maintenance. Our dream of cruising and exploring the world's oceans is matched with a desire to live a more off-grid and sustainable lifestyle. A background as RYA instructors, flotilla skippers and RNLI crew only partly prepared us for the challenges of this live-aboard lifestyle!

Sailing from the Aeolian Islands of Vulcano and Stromboli we head north to the Amalfi Coast of Italy - one of the most beautiful coastlines in Europe... and hopefully you'll see why. We try the street food of Amalfi Town (pizza and ice-cream obviously!) and visit a paper making museum. We then sail on towards the island of Capri, crowded with Super Yachts and dripping with ostentatious wealthy and expensive shops! Next we take a sail to Naples, but find the moorings too expensive so anchor in a dodgy part of town before taking a train to Herculaneum (Pompeii's sister town) to see what became of the population when Vesuvius erupted in 79AD - we didn't expect to find actual skeletons.. but we did!

We sail to the Aoelian Islands just North of Sicily and have one of our most exciting adventures hiking to the active volcano on the island of Vulcano. The first day we take a warm bath in the sulphur mud and the next day we take a long hike up to the crater of Vulcano, we walk around the crater and observe the sulphur steaming out from the ground and learn quite a bit about vulcanoes which is great for our schooling. The sail to Stromboli , a recently active vulcano and are called up by the Italian coastguard and asked to remain 2 nautical miles offshore. So we quickly motor sailed away in case of any serious eruptions and headed to the Italian mainland. We are a family with 3 children and make our own electricity and water, homeschool the kids and do our own boat maintenance.

Sailing the North West coast of Greece from Lefkada to Sivota Mourtos on the Albanian border, we pick up friends and visit our favourite spots along the way - 2 Rocks Bay and Parga. While still beautiful, some anchorages have become over crowded, dirty and even dangerous. We cross the Ionian Sea, avoiding thunder and lightning storms along the way and travel up the Messina Strait between Southern Italy and Northern Sicily, encountering Italian ferries, sword fish boats (Passerelles) and the first significant tides in the Mediterranean Sea! Stormy weather, medical problems and mechanical breakdowns aside (!) we still find time for adventure and boatlife, family fun along the way.
