2021 Highs (and Lows)

It’s nearly over, so here’s a taster of our 2021 highs (and lows). Check out the video linked at the end of this post for our full year retrospective.

No matter how you feel a Sabah sunset lifts your heart

We had no idea we would be in the same place a year since last Christmas, but here we are still in Sabah, Malaysian Borneo.

Without the incredible support of our Patrons and FTBMates there were times when we would have thrown in the towel. Knowing there were people waiting to watch our videos and read our blog at the end of each week provided the drive to keep us motivated.

We said goodbye to cherished old supporters and hello to new lovely people. We even welcomed back some old, familiar names and faces. Thank you so much to all of you for caring enough about our work to lend us your support.

Jamie’s new underwater photography

2021 has been a bit like Groundhog Day, with a shrinking cruising ground and no options to escape. So when it came to looking back at the year, we worried it would be a catalogue of frustration and anxiety.

Turned out that in 2021 we did much more sailing than we had realised! 😃 We discovered loads of new places on the coast and inland. And most wonderful of all, we learned new skills.

How was your 2021? We hope it wasn’t an “annus horribilis” but instead a time when you found some happiness, hope and love.

Peace and fair winds!

  1. Hi guys like watching your videos some cracking places you have visited, being in that part of the world you seem to motor sail alot of the time due wind problems.
    I think i would be fed up doing that i think i would find a part of the world ware there would be a chance of sailing using the wind more. Will follow your videos in 2022 especially when you head towards the Philippines i have visited there on 3 occasions as my wife is from Butuan City on the island of Mindanao.
    All the best for 2022
