Sailing to our New Off Grid Home | Living Off Grid on a Sailboat

July 03, 2022 Sailing YouTubers

We had an eventful trip between spotting porpoises on the horizon, to being pulled over for a police check, to having a malfunction with our gear...

We are on the move again! Unfortunately the wind was not in our favour for this sail, but the beautiful early morning departure made up for it. We had an eventful trip between spotting porpoises on the horizon, to being pulled over for a police check, to having a malfunction with our gear at the worst time... but at the end of the day we are so excited to be moored at our new spot for living off grid on our sailboat!

This video is a little different than our usual vlog style episodes. Instead we decided to share our footage from our sail then debrief after about the events of the day!

If you are new to the channel, Blue Moon is a 1978 Catalina 30 sailing vessel which we acquired in 2020. One year later we decided it was time for a road trip and built out a 1998 Delica to drive across the country. Now we live aboard the boat full-time, take weekend trips in the van, and explore this beautiful world.

Thanks for watching!
