How we sail across OCEANS | Trade Wind SAILING Setup Ep.109

The HOLY GRAIL OF OFFSHORE CRUISING is sailing downwind in the trade winds. We have now sailed across 3 oceans using the trade winds. In this short bonus video we will share how we set Florence up to make the most of sailing in the trade winds as we sail west across the Indian Ocean, hundreds of miles offshore and out of sight of land. From setting the spinnaker pole to sail wing on wing, to preventing chafe and reducing roll by using a staysail.

We have been sailing around the world for over 5 years after setting off from England in 2016 on board our 37ft sail boat Florence. Join us as we share the highs and lows of travelling around the world by boat, Sailing offshore across the Oceans and exploring remote locations with our own little tiny house. Boat life out at sea on the ocean and off the grid.
