Want to sail around the world? Step 5: BUY A SAILBOAT | Sailing on a Whim Ep.5

On this episode of Sailing on a Whim, we travel from Minnesota to Florida to buy a sailboat! We finally get to see Whim in person, meet the current owner, and have a marine survey completed. Of course, we also run into some roadblocks like RUNNING AGROUND for the first time!

This crazy adventure started in early 2018 as we started researching how to learn to sail, buy a boat, outfit her, and take off for a life on the open seas! There has been a huge learning curve trying to make all of this happen and we want to share with you everything that we have learned and have some fun along the way.

We are excited (and a little nervous!) to share this journey with you. We hope that you learn a little from our experiences and maybe inspire you to make changes to live the life you want!
