I will TEACH you HOW TO SAIL in 20 minutes from LEAVING the DOCK to ANCHORING in the new location. I had SO MANY QUESTIONS when I started sailing and had a difficult time finding all the answers. I hope this video will answer most of yours too!
1. In addition to Navionics, it’s good to use Google Earth or Google Maps too (you can download areas offline for free) when you’re sailing in an area with lots of reefs, just to be sure.
2. Of course, whatever the official rule for boat traffic is, you must avoid hitting the other boat 🙂
3. Navigation rule 4: The Wale: when sailing in the night, most motor boats (except a few exceptions mentioned in the navigation rules book) still have to avoid you (they see on the lights a sailboat has that you are sailing). Not sure? Call the ship on channel 16 🙂
This is my biggest project I’ve ever done. And I hope you like it!

After school I worked at a bank and started a company, as this was what I thought I was supposed to do. I did not like my life at all and after a long decision making process I decided to take a jump in the deep. I sold my house and stored my stuff and found a job opportunity in South Africa. A world I never could have imagined opened up for me, traveling and working at the same time. Before heading back to my home country, The Netherlands, I started an “acting for theatre and film” evening course, with the intention to learn to become a better presenter in business. As I was still pursuing what I thought I was supposed to do, business. To my surprise I really enjoyed the acting training and decided to change my idea of what I was supposed to do and what not and continued an acting school in NYC. When finished studying, my application for a US work visa was denied because I didn’t already have proof of many jobs done in the industry (of course not! I was just starting out). A friend of mine was into sailing and through him I found out that people sailed around the world and made money by making YouTube videos. I knew nothing about sailing, but #travel around the world was always my dream and sailing on other peoples boats seemed a cheap and adventurous way to achieve that. I fell in love with making a #travelvlog and have never stopped doing it since. I lived a year on sailing boats #sailingaroundtheworld but after crossing the pacific I felt it was time to do something else. I cycled New Zealand from top to bottom, drove a $200 motorbike through South-East Asia, sold it for $300 and drove a van from Kyrgyzstan to Pakistan which I then shipped to Argentina to drive to Alaska doing the vanlife. I’m incredibly grateful that I am able to do something I love every day and thankful for everyone who joins me on this journey.
