Sailboat Cyclone Prep | Preparing our boat for Cyclone Season | Sailing with the James's (Ep. 59)

We are all hands on deck as we cyclone prep our boat for cyclone season.

We are taking a detour away of our shakedown sail up the east coast of Australia and preparing our boat for a cyclone. We are taking down the sails, prepping the ropes and halyards and expliaing why! And we have some exciting news to share!

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!
