This episode is about our second attempt to sail to Jamaica and about our second failure. Building a rudder on the beach and other fun stuff to do in Cayman Brac (the most expensive place Zingaro has been so far).
When we arrived in Cayman Brac, James knew exactly what to do. By then he was an experienced rudder-builder, You could say. He got his angle grinder out and got to work immediately. And even on this little island, we were able to find a hardware store. YES!
When Zingaro got what she needed to bring us to Jamaica safely, we started to explore the Caymanian nightlife and made a bartour ALL THE WAY AROUND Cayman Brac (three bars).
That was when we met the wonderful Debra, who invited us for showers and laundry over to her house. We needed that badly. She gave us a tour of the Island in the daylight, too. Now we are proud to say that we have seen every last bit of that rocky little piece of land.
❤ Thank you so much, Deb ❤
We had problems checking out, but that was totally our fault. I’m very grateful that the guys from the immigration were so chilled about us breaking numerous laws. Island style.
We’re giving back to the community that has made this adventure possible. We hit some major milestones this month: 1 million views, 20,000 subscribers, the Pacific!
In this livestream we discuss about transiting the Panama Canal, our cruising plans, Zingaro’s sails (old/new), travel to USA in April, thoughts on this channel after 1 year and about James’ sailing history …
A lot of people have asked for it, so here it is! Boat tour time! This one will be a bit different than most, as I’ve already given a tour of the layout. If you haven’t seen the first walkthrough, please click here …
If you HAVE seen the boat, Kim and I put this together. A hilarious look at life on our home-built sailboat after 9,500 miles of cruising the world! We’ve fixed a TON of stuff, and there’s a lot left to do, but this is a funny look at the repercussions of sailing around the world. 😉
Hope you all like!

We lost our rudder off the coast of the Cayman Islands, so Captain James had to build another. Working in a shed, surrounded by roosters, rastas, and rain, we were actually able to finish everything and sail to Jamaica!
A HUGE thank you to our Caymanian friends! We loved it there, thank you guys for everything. Special thanks to the Hyde Family. Thanks for taking in a couple stays.
S/v Zingaro makes it to Cayman Islands, and we take it easy with a little kiteboarding and diving. The Kittiwake was a really cool wreck to dive, and Kimmi’s first freedive! She did amazing! Little fish. After that’s all over we realize we’ve got a little problem …
