One of the best things about the sailing community is how social it is. Everywhere you go, one sailor is more than happy to exchange a story with another; whether it be a story about an amazing spot they anchored at or an engine problem en route to a destination.
To compliment the social nature of sailors, there are many sailing Instagram accounts all over the platform. As my husband and I have been restoring our sailboat to sail the world, we have been sharing our progress through our own sailing Instagram @lifeneverlands and have loved the online friendship with others it has brought us. We’ve asked our followers questions and got answers, been inspired by the progress we’ve seen others make, and have shared what we’ve learned during our various projects in return. As we work on our to make our own dreams come true, it’s been fun and encouraging to follow other sailing Instagram accounts of those who are either already along on their journey to sail the world, or like us, are just beginning.
