Setting Sail on SV Escapade: Janaye and Jason’s Remarkable Journey

Envision embarking on a once-in-a-lifetime journey spanning the seven seas. Picture a voyage that captures the essence of adventure and the allure of the unknown. For Janaye McDonald and Jason Marshall, this isn’t a dream; it’s their extraordinary reality. This fearless Australian couple has cast off the constraints of a conventional life to embrace the vast expanse of the world’s oceans, sailing around the globe aboard SV Escapade, a majestic 2002 Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 40.

Chasing the Dream

Their extraordinary odyssey commenced after two and a half years of unwavering dedication and meticulous saving. The pair was determined to find the perfect vessel that would carry them through the enchanting tapestry of global exploration. Not only did they face the usual challenges of setting sail on such an ambitious quest, but they also had to navigate the treacherous waters of the Covid-19 pandemic, which brought about travel restrictions and uncertainties. However, in the face of adversity, Janaye and Jason remained resolute.

With their dreams firmly anchored in the horizon, they persevered. After an arduous search, they finally became the proud owners of the SV Escapade, a vessel that would become the gateway to their seafaring dreams.
