la vagabonde
sailing videos

Hello world!
We are an Australian couple who met in Europe over 4 years ago now. Riley had bought a yacht, having no clue of how to sail and met myself in the Greek Islands while I was playing music for the summer. He asked me to set sail with him on his 43.4ft Beneteau Cyclades 'La Vagabonde'. I didn't tell mum at first, but I said yes. It has been quite the adventure       GREAT VIDEOS

RYAN & SOPHIE SAILING THE WORLD
sailing videos

Hi there! We are Ryan and Sophie, an American guy and a French girl who met in Sweden, on a cold night of March 2015. Shortly after, we decided to leave our corporate jobs to live a big sailing adventure around the World together! We had no experience of sailing at all, and had honestly no idea what we were getting ourselves into. Turns out, with a bit of willpower and work, anything goes. The dream came true on June 5th of 2018, when we finally got to set sail from our home port in Stockholm.

LIS AND JAMIE
Sailing videos


We are Jamie and Liz, two Brits on a sailboat sailing the wrong way round the world since 2006. At a time when accurate narratives are scarce, we believe everyone should be able to watch an honest story of sailing and travel. With followtheboat there is no fakery, titillation or sensationalism; you see what we see, warts and all. We receive too many private emails and messages to reply to them, but if you become an FTBMate we will be happy to discuss with you personally any questions you may have about us and sailing.

There's something rather special about a sailboat...

But there's definitely something really special about a cruising sail boat. Size isn't it - large or small - they all have it. Neither do they have to be stunningly beautiful or hugely expensive.
