Do Kate's new seasickness meds work? How does the dog adjust to sailing? How is the boat set up differently for bluewater ocean passagemaking? What is it like out there?

We are finally offshore, on a 2700 mile Journey from St. Maarten to Azores. We won't see land for at least two weeks. We will encounter storms, be becalmed, see whales and dolphins and more. We listen to the sounds of the ocean. Wind, waves, and the sound of the water moving against the hull bring a sense of asmr and calming at times.

This is Day 1. The hardest portion of the journey is re-adjusting to the sea and leaving the safety of land in the Caribbean islands. If you enjoy pure offshore sailing, and what to learn what it is like to cross the Atlantic ocean for the first time, you find this series of videos enjoyable.

Who are we?

No babes in bikinis here. No fake boat fails and made up crashes. This is real sailing. We don't do makeup, we don't try to look sexy or be Instagram models. We are just making raw and real inspiring and relaxing sailing and travel videos. This is what it is like for normal hard working people to sell it all and live aboard a sailboat or tiny home and travel the world.

We are Kate, Curtis, and Roxy the Sailing Dog aboard our 46 foot sailing vessel (s/v or s/y) Sweet Ruca. We sold our house, bought a boat, re-fit it ourselves, and started off to sail around the world, the hard way, via Cape Horn and the Cape of Good hope, on original trade wind routes of the tall ships.

We are not beginning sailors, we have lots of experience in boats from sailing dinghies and small powerboats to large racing yachts. Kate is a school teacher taking an extended sabbatical, Curtis is a boat rocking entrepreneur that enjoys the path less traveled. Roxy the Sailing Dog is a shelter rescue dog who now enjoys beach life and the endless new smells of "head out the window" boat rides.
