Rationing is in force on Florence, the arrival of a food delivery boat is something to be celebrated and even more so as this time it brings a special delivery to allow us to make the most of this island paradise. Sailing around the world is not simple in these times and we have to get used to living in isolation off the grid, luckily we are anchored next to a beautiful tropical island and in one of the best parts of the world for surfing. We are a British couple who set off from England in 2016 to fulfill our dream of sailing around the world on our 37ft sail boat, Florence. Along the way we share the live aboard lifestyle with the highs and lows of travelling around the world by boat, our own little tiny house. Boat life out at sea on the ocean.

Sailing across the Indian Ocean can be fearsome. Pirates off of Somalia combined with storms off of South Africa make the choice of route difficult, throw in closed borders due to the pandemic and we find ourselves in a very difficult situation. We want to show a little of the concerns and stresses that lay behind the life we lead here in Isolation, so this video is a little different to usual. We are in no way complaining about our situation, we are just explaining our thoughts and feelings behind our reasoning for where and when we go from here.
