What's it like to live on a sailboat

What’s it like to live on a sailboat?

What is it like to live on a sailboat? Sailing, diving, fishing, swimming, beach barbecues, what’s not to love about this cruising and liveaboard lifestyle… That’s, of course, when the sailboat is running smoothly and the weather is on your side!

Sometimes the stars are aligned and circumstances are just right for some sailing, a little diving, fishing for mackerel and a laid-back barbecue with friends.

This episode is an example of the essence of life on a sailboat, the days that we all aspire to. With no maintenance or repairs to worry about, some favourable (if light) winds, and a break in the draconian movement control orders here, we take it easy on Sabah’s western coast.

These are the moments cruising liveaboards treasure.

We take a look at Liz’s new fishing rig set-up, but there is a disappointing fish fail in this week’s video! And Jamie talks through some of the equipment he uses for filming underwater.

  1. Hello Liz and Jamie,
    I just came across your blog and I had to stop and read a few of your posts.
    Living on a sailing boat sounds like much fun but also requires a lot of strong nerves I guess.
    But I have a question: How do you finance your “sailing life”?
