We celebrate a traditional root tea ‘Kava' ceremony, which made our conversations amongst our table a liiiiiiittle deeper and more relaxed... Riley claims it was just the beers. Also, meet some of our new pals from the water and get a real taste of the place. Congrats to our winning Patrons, we hope you can make it aboard! These videos are made possible by you. Elay xo

Sailing across the Atlantic Pt. 2 - Ep. 35 RAN Sailing
RAN Sailing


Published on Dec 27, 2016
Half way in to crossing the Atlantic the squalls continues and we don't get a lot of sleep. But the days pass fast anyway and when there's only a couple of days left the trade winds kicks in and we start to log many miles per day. After 18 days we arrive early morning to St. Davids on Grenada after an incredible experience!

We are a Swedish couple who wanted a different kind of life. So we moved aboard our sailboat RAN, a custom built aluminium Beason 40, and untied the lines in the middle of the Swedish winter and started to sail south along the coast of Europe. There is no set route and we will go where the wind and our minds takes us.

Read more about us and the boat and get updates and photos!
