RAN Sailing

RAN Sailing

We are a Swedish couple who wanted a different kind of life. So we sold everything we owned and saved money for 1,5 years while living aboard our 40-foot custom built aluminium sailboat. Then we untied the lines in the middle of the Swedish winter in January 2016. After sailing half way around the world, we welcomed our daughter in the end of 2019 and bought a bigger boat (Najad 440) that we’re now cruising on as a family.

We want to share this sailing adventure with you and inspire you to live your dreams and to explore the world. We love making inspiring videos and upload a new episode every Friday!

With your support we can keep producing and create videos on our own terms. Join the crew here and get access to extra material, bonus videos, exclusive meet-ups, live chats and more: http://www.patreon.com/ransailing
