We Bought A Blue Water Sailing Boat!! – (Boat Tour) : Ep 4

Buying our blue water sailing boat took us all the way up to the north east coast of Scotland, Peterhead where she will remain for the next couple of months as we prepare her for the long sail home in the spring. She’s a Trident Warrior 38, built in 1984, an oldie, but a goodie. She’s already completed one circumnavigation in her life and it’s our goal to make it two.

As a couple we’re looking forward to all of the challenges that come with owning a live aboard sailing yacht, boat life and circumnavigating the world together.

A big shout out to some of the people who inspired us to live a life less ordinary, and for any family or friends who wonder who gave us this crazy idea, well there are several parties to blame, which I’ll list below.

Firstly the original sailing couple who led the way for so many of the sailing channels that we see today, none other than Paul and Sheryl Shard and their Distant Shores adventure channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/distantshores1

Second on the list has to go to possibly my favourite channel to watch, I hope to one day be even 10% as capable of fixing boat problems that arise as Captain Brian over at the Delos channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/briantrautman

Also a big shout out to the amazingly talented and beautiful couple over at Sailing La Vagabond. You guys made us realise that buying and living on a sailing boat was possible for us mere mortals, even if you have transcended that status somewhat by now. Great channel for anyone that’s never come across them: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCZdQjaSoLjIzFnWsDQOv4ww

Finally to a modern day Moitessier, documenting his mostly single handed sails in his tiny little boat, really capturing the entire range of what the ocean can throw at you, all the while remaining calm, collected and just getting on with it. If we can keep our cool even half as well as this legend then we will be fine. The Sailing Frenchman: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCjbnS2PJDbVxyF0foCil6oQ
