Hey! Maybe you have heard it through the grapevine but we are about to sell Blue Juice. The plan is to hand her over on Martinique, mid season, so the new owner can sail her right away. She is ready to go places.

We are selling Blue Juice, our home of 4 years and sailing vessel that took us from Greece to the Caribbean

Ok now that we spilled the beans, we owe you some background. This comes out of nowhere to you all.

It is tough, Blue is our home for 4 years now and she took us to countless amazing places.

We realize every week how little you guys have seen from the time after we crossed. And that has been a LOOONG time ago. It's just such a shame we haven't managed to capture a broader audience that would allow us to have gotten editing support or... a bigger boat to take crew, a nanny, and find headspace to work.

There is plenty of pictures and videos on our hard drives and to be honest, I believe we will be able to deliver more content this year than in the last two years. (oh my god.. I'm talking about YEARS timeframes... Thank god it's the new year and I can frame this as a new years update.)

Here's the silver lining. Once we are off the boat and in a place where Levi can go to daycare and we built our studio (more on that down below), we have time on our side. This will allow us to reminisce and publish all those stories that we lived through in 2021 and 2022.

Keeping YouTube videos recent and up to date (filmed last week, published this week) is something that sailing couples can manage, if they have a crazy work ethic. We managed a weekly schedule for 1 out of 3 years. And that is when most of you joined and we were on an upswing. But it's impossible if you throw a baby in the mix. Sailing Family? Wow, somehow none of the big family sailing channels prepared us for this reality. I WONDER WHY! Are they.. selling… A DREAM?! Well now, we had to scratch one thing from the work list, and that was the editing and regular publishing of content.

We owe you a glimpse into what our future holds. This is where we're coming from and what we do next:

What now?

It will be a crazy 2023, lots of uncertainties and unknowns. You know the housing market sucks.

Again, thank you all for enjoying what we create, especially since we're not as close and spontaneous to our community as we should be. We are well aware that we're not delivering the intimate Patreon livestreams or zoom calls that our friends provide to their Patronage and we wish we could carve out the time.

We will keep posting videos, hope to create a good story once a month (hopefully more often again once we are grounded), flavoured with biased personal opinions, a snide gibe once in a while, calling out some local politics BS, and real info from on-the-ground of those oh-so-pretty and interesting places 🙂. Because as far as I've seen, no one else does. We still have so much to share with you guys and we look forward to doing that again soon!

Now if you want to finally read all the details about Blue Juice, this is it:

It would be too romantic if one of you were to take her, but a boy can hope.

Lot's of love and a Happy New Year to you!
Alex, Mandy, Levi
