I have created this blog as a place to post about my trials and errors growing plants/food, canning, dehydrating, decorating, storing, and provisioning, for long-distance cruising on a sailboat.
The Captain and I began learning how to sail around 2009, starting with a small sailboat known as a Columbia 26. We bought and sold our way up to a 1976 Morgan Out Island 41, which we purchased in March of 2015. Her name is “Sail Before Sunset,” and she is our final home.
We plan to retire on Sail Before Sunset in about 2 1/2 years. In the meantime, while we are working on restoring the boat to her former glory, I am learning about long-term food storage, fishing, organizing, and other categories related to living on a sailboat, so that when we leave to sail around the world, we are as self-sufficient as possible.
Follow me and see what I learn about being self-sufficient on a sailboat. I intend to post my successes as well as my failures. I hope that as you follow along, you might be able to make suggestions on how to make life easier, or point out how I can do things better.
