BE INSPIRED, GET MOTIVATED AND COME ALONG FOR THE RIDE
Liz, Jamie and Millie the Cat have been sailing the world aboard Esper since 2006. Not only do we share our adventures but we help those looking to challenge themselves and make the break from routine. Over the next two seasons we are going to be taking on our biggest challenge yet!
Followtheboat is about providing inspiring content, to educate and entertain through our youtube sailing channel and social media platforms. We like to show you all aspects of living on a boat, warts and all, because it's not all beaches, bikinis and beer. We show you the reality of this lifestyle and at the same time help wannabe liveaboards to make that leap. We make videos, write books, contribute to magazines... and we keep it real.
Looking for inspiration?
We like to share our adventures so join our mailing list and get exclusive deals on our shop, articles, videos and photographs. We don't spam, we only send out one email a week.
Fifteen years of blogging
We have been blogging and videoing since 2002. With over 500 blog entries and 150 videos on youtube, we have quite a bit of knowledge and sailing experience, though we're always learning. Check out our blog for more info or take a look at our map for a taster. Older entries cover Europe and the Caribbean, newer entries from the Red Sea to the east, these are just a few of our posts.

Imagine how you would feel if you had to make an emergency stop in high risk seas and became sitting ducks on your sailboat. That’s what happened to us and it was a tense moment for all the boats.

Med mooring with the birds and bees…September 6, 2020
So far, Malaysia has been kind to us in allowing sailboats and crew to stay here without visas. The latest RMCO (Recovery Movement Control Order) finishes 31st December and we are hoping the government will extend the same courtesy until it finishes.
