Chasing a dream, we quit our jobs and moved onto a 26ft catamaran called Kittiwake in 2016. In 2018, we upgraded to Skua, a Tayana 37. Not wanting to wait until we're old and better off, we decided to start our adventure now, while we're still young. So with a tiny budget, we're following the ethos of a small boat, a frugal life and a rich experience.
