Want to know a bit about how we got to the point of living and cruising on our 32ft Sailboat Charade (or as we like to call her ‘Lady C’)?
This is our dream in a nut shell – The Dream
Here is where we are now – Setting off on A Salty Voyage!
We have just sailed the West Australian Coast on an amazing 8 month voyage
This is our story from the beginning – Where it starts and
how we established sailing was for us – Gremlin
Here is a bit about us…
Base grew up sailing and surfing. He has sailed across The Pacific, sailed through Greece and worked on boats in the US. He is a sailor through and through!
Jamie never knew how to sail before she met Base. But she never lets anything get in her way!
This is what we have on the cards for our first voyage.
We’ve done quite a bit of travel – check out our map of places we’ve been!
This is what drives us….
We have a deep love for our Oceans and as we sail, surf and dive and we want to give back and do more for the Health of the Big Salty Blue. Using citizen science we are learning more and sharing what we learn! Citizen Science for our Oceans
Our latest citizen science projects can be found here: Salty Citizen Science
Here is the report we created after 7.5 months of sailing and doing Marine Debris Research.
We have a really exciting project lined up for this year. Find out more about
How we fund our trips:
Our boat is commercially licensed to take passengers and we can run it as a sailing school or charter business and we do. The business is called Southern Cross Sailing and we operate out of Fremantle. We share our love of sailing with others…. possibly one of the best jobs in the world! With any money we make, it funds our Citizen Science projects for Ocean Health. So why not come out for a sail with us….- learn more here
We also take donations to help us do more Citizen Science for our Oceans. If you can donate – every little bit helps. Donate Here
Jamie also runs an online business – all around Steps to Eco Living – www.jamievanjones.com and does online content marketing, social media and websites! Contact her if you want to get a new site going, or update an old one!!
We love hearing from like minded people… please drop us a line any time!
Thanks for the support! Life if short we have to make the most of our time on this amazing blue planet of ours!
Base and Jamie
