Dolphins, whales and seals usher us in as we call land HO!! It was an awesome experience, the whole thing: the crossing, filming, editing, and producing.Continue reading “Te Vega – Pacific Crossing FINALE! (pt. 4)”

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.

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”
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)!
Our floating home has broken in two pieces. With the help of our Patrons and friends, we will find a new, stronger Zingaro 2.0 and take it on a new adventure.
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!
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
The Line Islands consists of the scattered islands and atolls lying near the Equator and the meridian of 160°00’W. We have visited three of the islands in the group so far.
This video was taken back in Ecuador when we were beginning to explore the coast and the islands of that beautiful country.
Livestream from a cyber cafe in Moorea (French Polynesia). It’s going to be about our time in Ecuador (where we are in the Episodes). We’re talking about sailing plans plus some special announcements!
