MJ Sailing

Sailing the world to see the world! We’re a couple of high school sweethearts in our late 30’s that have been on the move for 9 years; creating videos of the ups, the downs, our triumphs and our trials.

After circumnavigating the North Atlantic in our last boat Serendipity, (1989 Sabre Targa 34), we took on a 2 year complete refit of our new boat Elements of Life – a custom aluminum 37′ monohull. After sailing her to the Arctic, we sold her in 2020 to begin our newest project of building a 42 ft catamaran.
