Day 2 of Sailing Lessons | Travel Life with Proteus Rising | Episode 33

https://youtu.be/CaNTju9Qt7E

In this episode (34), We head out onto the open sea — well open sea as far as Casz & Gregor are concerned. We see sea lions, some real ocean waves, and begin to understand where we need to study more to get our certification. Navigation, anyone?

Boat Business in San Diego, North Bend, and Anacortes | Travel Life with Proteus Rising | Ep. 29

All the stuff you have to do to go from land to sea and all around the world…

https://youtu.be/TGOqDTDw4x4

We bought a blue-water sailboat; sold our house; bought an RV and now we’re going from land to sea and all around the world. This is our journey.

Not all boat hooks are made equal.

In this episode (29)… This episode shows you the massive amount of multi-tasking it takes to make this From Land to Sea and All Around the World Dream come true. Casz works on Operation Curb Appeal with the assistance of Tank; while Greg has to go take care of business in San Diego and gets a little maritime fun in while he’s there, then it’s back to SV Elli in Anacortes, where there’s a lot of work and a little bit of hassle.

Special thanks to Alein’ Whalers, who let us use their music in their video. Check them out here: https://aleinwhalers.bandcamp.com/releases or on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/channel/UClk5nCOAiMEwQ1-NbkPvd_A
