Jump on board! Come sailing with us and learn about this alternative style of travel: by sailboat!
Simple. Sustainable & Free. In search for action, adventure, a meaningful experience, new learnings and meeting new like-minded people from all over the world? Jump on board the flotilla and spend a week with Paula “Allende los Mares” and I, Suzanne “The Oceanpreneur”: 2 sailing boats, 15 adventure people exploring Sicilian waters in September!
About the Adventure
We’ll navigate to the beautiful bays, coves and islands of Sicily, learn, live, and explore together. We raft up and gather up to talk about our lifestyles of eternal travel by sailboat. How it works, and how it doesn’t… Paula and I will share the ins and outs of our sailing adventure ocean nomad lives of crewing and how we would do it again (and how not), and how we make it meaningful and sustainable. All we would have love to know before we embarked on sailing adventures! We won’t make too much of a plan. Since it will never go as planned and as we have learned over the years the greatest adventure and excitement is in the unknown!
The itinerary will be determinate mostly by the forecast, we will follow the wind ;) Our investigative spirit will bring us to the off the beaten path and pretty places. There will be two trips, 8th to 15th and, 15th to 22nd of September. We will be leaving on Saturday from PortoRosa, Sicily, the first day we will get to know each other, the captains will present you some possible itineraries and spots in the area, we will decide together where to go, if someone has a different suggestion it will be welcomed. We will also talk with the locals for their recommendations. We will come back to the same port the Saturday after.

Paula and I have both started from zero in sailing a couple of years ago. We have been boathitchhiking for a few years living more at sea than land and learning the ropes along the way. We’ve been sharing the magic on Youtube, Social Media and on our blogs. The real magic happens at sea! Now we are qualified captains (Yachtmaster Offshore) and are ready to take YOU out sailing! Check out a few of our previous adventures to see if you can relate and this is for you!
