This week we’re answering the critical question: what happens if you crash the boat? This is a rare but extremely serious situation and can have dire consequences if the boat is not built with collisions in mind. Seawind manager Mike takes us through the crash bulkheads and how they’re made to prevent water ingress, and the Seawind 1370’s watertight compartments, and we have a chance to chat to Seawind owners Mark and Isobel from s/v Jollydogs who happened to collide with an underwater object in the middle of the Pacific Ocean and had their entire starboard bow ripped off. And yes, they sailed over 1000 miles to safety.

Hey there! We’re Nick and Terysa and we’ve become completely obsessed with the idea of sailing around the world and sharing our experiences and information through our sailing lifestyle videos with others.

We met travelling around India, and quickly agreed that rather than “settling down” and doing what most normal people do, we wanted to travel and adventure instead and started our sailing lifestyle adventure stories, since then, we’ve been working hard towards achieving our dreams, and now we’re finally living them as sailing cruising lifestyle!
