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.
