New Video: We sail through some of the more remote and rarely visited Fijian Islands. We receive an amazing welcome in Moala with a traditional feast and a seat in the Chief’s circle for Kava drinking. Then we sail on to the Great Astrolobe reef to explore deserted desert islands and swim with some of our favourite sea creatures, the Manta Rays.

I have been following you almost from the very beginning of your journey. Your videos and blog are simply the best. So much so, that I am considering getting back into sailing and getting my own boat. Can you recommend a good sailing school anywhere in Europe?
Thanks for the vote of confidence! What type of boat are you thinking to get? (yacht or dinghy, big or small, sail on your own or with crew?). We are both dinghy sailors at heart and believe that is the best way to start. Where in Europe are you based and what did you sail before?

Hi Matt and Amy,
Yes, I love dingy sailing. It is a lot of fun especially when there is a group of you. I am thinking of getting a smallish sailboat around 30 feet. Just enough to become a live aboard. At the moment I am in North America but will be moving to Portugal in the near future. I am really flexible where I end up.
That sounds good Mike. The sailing schools we know are all based in the UK but that doesn’t mean there aren’t good ones elsewhere. Another good way to up your skills and confidence is to join a local club and offer yourself as crew. It’s often a cheap way to regularly get out on the water and gain from others experience, especially if you are racing. We wish you the best of luck.
