Today we’re setting sail on the open ocean for what feels like our maiden voyage all over again.

It was August 2019 when we sailed into the harbor here in Vava’u, Tonga.  A LOT has happened since then, including surviving a couple of cyclone seasons, a pandemic, a 7-month quarantine layover in Fiji, and a remote island boat refit.

It’s been a long time since we’ve lost sight of land and experienced the raw power of the sea.  Out here, the ocean controls everything and we’re just along for the ride.  Which to me is the allure of sailing.  It’s a rare state of mind and body where we’re reminded of what it is to be human, vulnerable, to endure, survive, and thrive.

24 hours at sea is but a drop of water in the bucket for a voyaging seafarer.  But for these dehydrated sailors, it feels like a tall glass of water.


We’re Jason and Nikki Wynn. We been living Off The Grid and exploring the world for 10 years.
Our first six years of #travel were an epic road trip around North America.
Now we’re on a #sailing voyage about the world. Did we have any previous sailing experience, of course not!
Neither of us is overly talented, smart, rich, lucky, or retired. But that doesn’t stop us from reaching far-flung destinations, having wild #adventures and managing everything that makes living aboard a moving vessel possible.
We’re two ordinary people that just so happen to live an extraordinary life.
And this is why we publish our lives on the world wide web. We share in hopes of inspiring you to find your adventure.
