This, our first official followtheboat podcast, is an interview with a young south African family half way through a sailing circumnavigation. They’ve visited a staggering 30 counties in 3 years but their trip has been put on hold as they attend to a dismasting hiccup! As if that’s not enough, Ronel has returned to their home in America for three months, leaving dad Neil to look after Emille, 7, and Pete, 5. There’ll be hell to pay if that new mast isn’t up when she returns!
Hear about the boys’ favourite countries and what it was like to be on board when the mast fell down. Meanwhile the parents fill us in on educating their kids whilst at sea, with some advice for would-be liveaboard families.
This is a wonderful insight into what it’s like to be a young family living on the open seas.
