We get a fishing pot wrapped around our rudder in the Irish Sea....and Matt has to get in frigid waters to free us! In this week's episode we travel from Bangor, Northern Ireland, to Dublin. Along the way, we wrap a fishing pot around our rudder, and Matt has to get in frigid waters to free us. Thankfully it was just a few quick dunks in the Irish Sea and we're on our way again. In the Dublin area, we use one of our days to tour the Guinness Storehouse, amazed at how well everything is laid out. We even get the VIP treatment with two round of beer at the end of our tour...and even get our portraits sprayed on the second round with malted barley. Wrapping things up we take a walk about Dún Laoghaire, where the boat is, and its famous 40 Foot Hole; as well as the historical town of Dalkey, and the castles which used to serve as storage for unloading cargo in the harbour of Dublin. This was another episode I had so much fun reliving while I edited, and we hope you enjoy it as well! Enjoy! Much love from Scotland!

Thanks to some hefty currents pushing us along, we catch the ride of a life, sailing along at 11 knots in glass calm conditions. Leaving the Sound of Jura, we tried to make a pass through some tricky areas at slack tide, only to find out we'd timed ourselves wrong. Luckily the current was behind us and in the end we had a wonderful case of being pushed along like a rocket in just a breath of wind. Our sail leads us to Bangor Marina in Northern Ireland, which we found a beautiful town with great coastal paths for walking. Also wanting to explore Belfast though, we hopped the train into the big city where we spent the day exploring the Titanic Quarter, Botanical Gardens and museum of natural history. Enjoy!

We have plans to build our own catamaran. And we're going to take you through the process on how it's done! Using a Schionning 1200 as an example, we walk you through the steps of what it would take from the time you receive your shipping container full of components, to when your new boat is launched in the water. From finding and building a work space, to setting up the first panels, Matt will tell you each step that is involved, and what we estimate to be the time spent on each process. We expect this build to take approximately two years for us to complete, and will be done in the US, although we have not decided exactly where yet. Make sure to stay tuned for the next set of videos in our build series, where we will go over the three designers we are looking at: Grainger, Schionning, and Oram; in more detail.

After leaving one of the best anchorages we've ever spent time in, we need to seriously think about making the trip to our winter berth in Plymouth. Sailing out of the Sound of Mull and back into the Firth of Lorne, we're now back into the same cruising grounds we entered Scotland on in the spring. We pop into the town of Oban to get some errands done, which had been building up over the past few weeks. But because they have a 3 night max stay, it's not long before we're back at anchor. Tucked into a calm and very secluded spot just a few miles away, we enjoy more breathtaking scenery and our last nights at anchor before it's time to make our way down the Irish Sea. Enjoy!

In the wave of the COVID-19, we know that everyone's plans are getting tossed upside down, and the United States has just gone into a state of emergency. We had thought about delaying this video until things had begun to settle down, but truthfully, we don't know when that will be. Over on our end we're taking care to wash our hands, keep them off public surfaces, but mostly live our lives just as we had been doing. So, as we do that, we still wanted to share this exciting news with all of you out in MJ Land. Our thoughts and wishes are that everyone is well, and we hope we can bring a little entertainment to your night and hopefully a smile to your face. We've had some big news we've been keeping to ourselves recently, but it's about to change the course of our future, and we can't keep it in any longer! We hope you're just as excited about it as we are, and we can't wait to bring you along on the next stage of our lives! Much love from England!

Stay tuned for a SPECIAL video on Friday where we reveal our BIG NEWS!! This week's episode lands us in our favorite place of Scotland by far, Lochaline inside the Sound of Mull. If you wanted to know our favorite place in Scotland, we absolutely fell in love with a small fjord called Lochaline, on the Sound of Mull. It was recommended to us by a friend as a great hurricane hole, and since there were heavy winds on the way, we decided to check it out. What we were not expecting was the sheer beauty around us. Settling in to a glass calm anchorage at the height of the fall color change, we were anchored next to a prestigious manor and sheep that grazed along the waterfront. There were so many hiking trails to chose from, and one of our favorites lead out into the Sound of Mull to a set of castle ruins. We even had a number of sheep to accompany us along the way. Bottom line, if you're ever in the area, make a stop here. We promise you will not regret it. *Sorry for the poor audio quality in the second half of the video. We were having issues with the audio of our primary camera, and went to shooting everything with our GoPro Hero5. Much love from Scotland! Jessica, Matt & Georgie Thank you SO MUCH to our Patrons.

Leaving the Isle of Skye behind, we make our way toward another picturesque Scottish harbour – Tobermory! After 7 days of hiding out at anchor, we leave at sunrise to make our way to the Isle of Mull. Starting out with beautiful sunshine, we soak in all the highland sights around us as the sails […]

We have not had our fill yet of exploring the harbor of Portree on the Isle of Skye, but it won’t be protected from the southern storms headed our way, and we need to find protection FAST! On a sailboat, you could spend a good month (or more!!) exploring all the harbors and towns in […]

We take our boat to the mythical Isle of Skye in Scotland, and explore all the hidden treasures it has to offer. Making a day sail down from our previous anchorage in Lochinver, we enter the harbour of Portree just as the sun is setting, and do our best to find a spot to anchor […]

Leaving the Orkney Islands behind, we sail over the top of Scotland to take in the magic and cliffs of the western side of this island. Parking ourselves about as far north as you can get there, we find ourselves in utter isolation, but with breathtaking views of cliffs and mountains surrounding us. Just a […]

It’s been fun sailing the Northern Latitudes, but now we want to warm up!! Finding VERY cheap airfare from London to the Canary Islands, we say goodbye to boat life for a few weeks as we enjoy all the spoils the island of Tenerife has to offer. Instead of flying back to Michigan, and snow, […]

Have we just stumbled upon one of the world’s oldest cruising grounds? The Vikings liked to use it to ‘winter over’, more than 1,500 years ago! Orkney Island has such a large Neolithic history, that with our second chance to visit this island, we want to explore as much of it as possible. Scooting around […]
