This week we hit 30,000 subscribers to our YouTube channel! We were so thrilled to reach such a milestone, and it’s all because of the fantastic support we receive from you guys here, as well as our Patreons, Facebookers and Instagrammers.
Quick heads up in case you missed it. We’re going live today (Sunday for most people, Monday morning for us) and it’s an open forum! You can ask us anything about us, Millie, Esper, what it’s like as a liveaboard, our trip to the Anambas… live link here: https://www.youtube.com/c/spannerheadz-followtheboat/live (times are in the post). We look forward to catching up with you soon!
We’ll be going live on Tuesday and we’ve scheduled the broadcast on YouTube, which means we now have a link. When you click it you’ll see a ‘Live in X Hours’ and a ‘Set Reminder’ button. Click this to be reminded when we go live! The link is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YgMJB61agtg
We are going live this coming Tuesday 22nd August at 14:00 on youtube and we’re looking for YOUR questions. The theme of the broadcast is “The pros and cons of being a liveaboard”. If you’d like a better chance of us answering your question then either reply to this email, post your questions in the comments on this blog-post, or email Jamie or Liz directly. You’ll need to subscribe to our YouTube channel in order to get a live notification. More details in this blog post link…
Apart from the deep joy of discovering that our engine has seized, it feels like some kind of nautical episode of ‘Back to the Future’ here on SY Esper
Our regular Sailing Log Diary on YouTube–which out of necessity runs a few months behind real time–shows Jamie sailing alone in Thailand with Liz back in the UK looking after her ailing mum. And yet, right now, Liz has just returned from her >second visit home to tend to Dottie while Jamie has been solo-sailing in Thailand.
In the words of Shirley Bassey and the Propellerheads , “…it’s all just a little bit of history repeating…”
Sadly, for reasons beyond our control we are both on opposite sides of the globe this year, and can’t enjoy our usual special day. So we thought it would be nice to extend the seasonal tradition of exchanging gifts to include every one of our followtheboat subscribers across the world.
