How a liveaboard couple are prepping for the Northwest Passage

In this video, we meet Taryn and Logan Pickard from Wayward Life Sailing, a nomadic couple living full-time aboard the ‘Papa Rumba’ their third sailboat, where they’re learning, researching and planning a future trip through the Northwest Passage.

The Northwest Passage is the sea route between the Atlantic and Pacific oceans through the Arctic ocean, along the northern coast of North America via waterways through the Canadian Arctic Archipelago.

The duo both have experience welding, which is one of the reasons why they chose a 40-foot steel boat as their home on the water. They also thought it would be easier to repair in a range of temperatures, as compared to fibreglass, and also be sturdy enough to handle the Northwest Passage’s icy waters.

Here, they give us an honest look at their experience finding the perfect boat, learning to sail, living on a vessel with a dog, and how the liveaboard experience compares to what they’d imagined it would be like.
