Diver kicks and punches sharks to keep them away from the fish he has on his belt. Then, we had no idea this baby humpback whale would swim with us for over an hour! We’re so glad to have caught this moment on camera and be able to share it with all of you! ThisContinue reading “Swimming With Sharks and Whales | Season 1 – Ep. 79”
In this Zing I episode, we arrive in Tahiti to pick up our new dinghy! The 3.5 meter OC Tender. We named it Nolikī 😉 We have an interview with Russ, the owner/builder of these fantastic boats. Next we use the OC Tender to give “Sinky” to Katoosh: two brothers who are sailing around theContinue reading “Say Hello to Our New Dinghy! | Season 1 – Ep. 78”
In my FIRST VIDEO I put on the internet I explained that I had just purchased a catamaran and was going to sail it to Tahiti… I thought it would take around a year. Well, three years later and it’s finally here! In this episode, Kimmi and I arrive to Oeno, the fourth and lastContinue reading “After Three Years We Made it to TAHITI! – Ep. 77”
We were blessed by weather, and got to spend 7 days anchored in the famous Bounty Bay in May 2019 (we’re behind a lot with our episodes). We will never forget our time in Pitcairn, and hope you all enjoy our little excerpt of it. Let me tell you a bit about this not-to-often visitedContinue reading “Pitcairn Island – Sailing Zingaro Ep. 76”

For it’s remoteness it has gotten the title of a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Yet the influence of our wasteful civilization on its beaches could not be more striking!
It was with heavy hearts that we left our friends on Rapa Nui behind. But as soon as we got into our passage routine again, our excitement to see new locations started to grow quickly! Our next destination were the Pitcairn Islands, which include Ducie Atoll, Henderson Island, Oeno Atoll and, of course, the famousContinue reading “Sailing to the Pitcairn Islands! – Ep. 74”
Zingaro’s final installment of the adventures on Easter Island. Editing this footage brought us back so many memories. We absolutely will return to this magical place.
We visit Ahu Tongariki: the largest Moai site of Easter Island. It has 15 moai lined up and includes the largest moai ever erected on the island.
We start this story in the magical land of Anakena. This place has proven to be (and still holds the title) the best anchorage we’ve ever been to.
If you ever get the chance to go to Easter Island, please do. It was a magical place. A bit difficult to have a boat, but the people, the food, and the ambiance was amazing.
The stories about this island were true: Little protection for sailboats and dangerous harbor entrances for dinghies make it a very difficult destination for cruisers.
Our passage from Ecuador to Easter Island: Three weeks on the Pacific Ocean, all by ourselves, we were fantasizing about a couple different things.
In this video we’re slowly but steadily making our way to the remote Easter Island, we’re dealing with the autopilot and the very moody weather underway.
In this episode we find out exactly, what happens when you lose your autopilot 500nm out to sea on the way to the most remote inhabited island in the world.
In this episode we provision and start our 2500 nautical mile sail. We leave Ecuador bound for Easter Island (Rapa Nui)!
I made this Episode more documentary style and longer than usual. It’s about how to stay sane while sailing around the world and why having fun should be on your to do list!
James attempts to scale the Chimborazo and Kim heads to the Amazon, taking a camera and capturing some amazing scenes of her travels.
In this episode we’re heading inland to Ecuador: kayaking in a dormant volcano, riding dirtbikes through Baños and checking out the biggest swing in South America!
We pop open the gennaker and take Zingaro for a play day in the bay of Manta, Ecuador. Come join us for some how-to on the asymmetrical spinnaker
