We Love South Africa! It’s very important to us this is clear. The last thing we want to do is create a negative association with South Africa and the sailing community in South Africa. Because aside from this one event, we have had nothing but positive experiences in South Africa and with the beautiful South African people we have met along the way.

WE’RE JASON AND NIKKI WYNN. A couple of modern-day documentarians, perpetual travelers, and seekers of tall tales. We’ve been chasing our curiosity around the world on wheels and keels since 2011.
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 share in hopes of inspiring you to cultivate your curiosity.
