Re: The future of RAN Sailing?!
I also follow Wicket Salty. A young couple on a fixer upper, i.e. not an expensive boat. Real down to earth, not made of money for sure. I like low budget people and older boats as they more align with what I'll be. LaVag became too rich, too many marinas and a baby. All of which dont interest me.
I did follow Ran, still do, but with not much interest.
Britican is now stuck in Caribbean needing money. I think they have a big boat for having run out of money, but charting works for them so far. Wish them luck. Great email and how to from the wife on her blog?
I did like Catalpa, middle age couple with kids. Not interested in kids, but love their low budget, do it yourself sailing. Follow them regularly but going to land to sell boat and move up eventually. If it broke, he fixed it or they did without. Nice.
Delos, yep, great vids. Seems to be not as adventurous as they were in the Indian Ocean.
Gone with the Wynns, my favorite. Pretty much my age (slightly younger), couple w/no kids, on a 43' cat which I also plan to sail, not made of money, does as much repair as possible, love their destinations!
