Cats Away Mice Will Play | What to do when the CAPTAIN IS GONE | Sailing with the James's (Ep. 60)

Sam is headed to the Northern Territory this week and will meet a ship in Darwin and take it across the Gulf to the Torres Strait. What do the crew do when the captain is gone? Well there is a very good saying “When the cats away, the mice will play”. Come see what Charlie and Cait have been up to while the captain has been gone.

We are the James Family (Sailing with the James’s), we purchased an unfinished aluminium catamaran sailing around the world and are fixing her up as go. We are living on our sailboat full time and traveling around the world. Come onboard our boat and join this sailing family aboard on our floating home!
