Most borders throughout the Pacific are still closed due to the pandemic.  But, New Zealand has an application for vessels needing major refit work…and that’s definitely us!

We applied, were approved, and now we’re setting sail for a 1,300 nautical mile voyage from the tropics in The Kingdom of Tonga to the wilds of winter in New Zealand.  We’ll drop 20 degrees in Fahrenheit and latitude. (hello roaring 40’s)

It’s our most ambitious voyage yet and is supposed to be a non-stop 10-day passage.  But, we have a brutal start that has us altering the course just three days in.  


We’re Jason and Nikki Wynn. We been living #OffTheGrid 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.
