These are the adventures of the MosieGrimm family. We started sailing dinghy boats (Laser and Albacore) in 2011. We purchased our first, almost real, sailboat in 2016, a 2002 Macgregor 26X.


In June 2018 we sold our Macgregor and moved to a larger CS34 Sailboat.


If you are looking for expert advice on how to sail or maintain a boat, please move on, these are not the stories you are looking for.

This site will show you our typical approach to learning anything new. We like to first explore all of the wrong ways it can be done and then we usually try doing it wrong at least one more time just to make sure we fully understand it. Eventually, we get it figured out and move on to the next new thing to mess up.


Please comment and provide your support and suggestions! We are always interested in hearing your opinions on how things should be done. Or, even better, share your stories on how you like to learn through trial and error, with a heavy focus on error.

Twenty Years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
