We cheated on our boat! In Part 1, we talked about the tradeoffs between a family cruising boat like ours, and a performance cruising boat, like an Outremer. We wanted to see the exact differences for ourselves so we took a trip to their factory in La Grande Motte and gave it a go. In this episode we share what we learned sailing an Outremer 51 in different wind conditions and our thoughts on the factory tour.
Welcome to Covert Castaway, our fully uncut experience making the transition to be sailing liveaboard cruisers. Join us as we share what we are learning as we make the lifestyle change to sell our stuff, quit our jobs, buy a boat and explore the world.
