We are Greta and Michael and have been living on our sailboat ForTuna since April 2019. We travel the Mediterranean Sea and soon the Caribbean to raise awareness about ocean pollution. We share our travel and sailing adventures with our community of sustainable travellers. We would love to collaborate with Brands or Influencers who share our believes in sustainability and eco-friendly travels. So far we have worked with NorthSails, Beneteau, Albfilters.

How to afford a sailboat and become liveaboards

A sailing license, but in specific sailing experience is very important of you want to be living on a sailboat. While the sailing license gives you the basis to handle a boat and is necessary to get good insurance, sailing experience does give you the confidence to sail the boat, to dock it properly, to be able to react when situations get more tricky. Many of you have been asking us how to get sailing experience so here our best ideas so far: * go sailing with friends who already have sailing licenses Once you defined which kind of sailboat you would like to buy and have found suitable options these are the following steps which await you Take it our for a sailing trail if possiblelift our the boat and make a professional surveyReneogatioate the price if anything was detected during the surveybuy your sailboat and new home We will write a second blog post which will go more into detail about sailboat buying, what you should look for when visiting the sailboat and what you can use to negotiate the price.

Freediving in Cyprus (log15)

Getting the cables through the mast is quite a tricky thing but we found a way at the end to pull trough three new cables For now we decided to use our Radar only via WiFi and not install the data cable. Also we go on our second freediving session and explore the crystal clear waters of Cyprus. Why not subscribe to our channel so you wont miss the next episodes released twice a week?

Installing AIS 700 and a Quantum Radar on our Beneteau Oceanis 393 (log14)

For the AIS we choose the AIS 700, perfect for sailboats of our size and easily installable. For the radar we choose the Quantum Radar from Raymarine, which was a bit bigger than expected and caused some delays in our plan due to an unfitting radar mount. Check out this video to see the problems we encountered during the installation and what you should avoid when doing the installation of radar and AIS.

every day is a new opportunity, go out there and seek it ๐ŸŒ… . we would not be here enjoying this sunset today if we would not have taken the opportunities we found along the way, if we not sought the opportunities we could not find, if we would not trust in each otherโ€™s and our own abilities to make the best out of every opportunity ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€โค๏ธโ€๐Ÿ’‹โ€๐Ÿ‘จ . no matter if alone, as a couple, as a group of friends or as a family - you just need to jump when the opportunity calls โ˜บ๏ธ

Losing the boom at sea (log13)

We finally hoist the sails and leave Israel behind us, but on our sail to Cyprus we encounter our first serious problem. If you want to see how we cope with losing the fixing pin of our boom during our 200nm crossing from Israel to Cyprus check out the video! We obviously also show the amazing sailing experience we had before the incidents and will show you how you are going to prevent losing your boom and the fixing pin of your boom at sea.

We did it! we bought a SUP ๐Ÿ˜† . after consulting with so many of you about the Pros and Cons, about which would be the right size (and right colour ๐Ÿ˜‰) we went for it. And it is a lot more fun than expected! . we do love to live at anchor โš“๏ธ, but it means that getting on land is not always easy. especially with our current dinghy-motor situation (more about it soon!), so this investement means a further dimension of freedom for us - imagine having a stubborn car at home (our dinghy) ๐Ÿš— and now getting a bicycle (the SUP) ๐Ÿšฒ, sure it wont be useful for the weekly groceries, but I am already dreaming of all the ice cream break on the beach we are going to take with it ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿ . l'abbiamo comprato! ecco la nostra "bicicletta" ๐Ÿšฒ๐Ÿ˜ . dopo aver parlato con tanti di voi dei vantaggi e svantaggi di un SUP, delle dimesoni (e dei colori ๐Ÿ˜‰) giusti, abbiamo deciso di comprarlo, e ne siamo felicissimi! . #sup #paddleboarding #paddleboardingadventures #standuppaddleboarding #paddleboard #paddleboarder #supgirl #supadventure #paddlesports #suplife #sailinglife #whensailing #sailingtrip #sailboatlife #lifeonthewater #oceanvibes #vitaminsea #boatlife
