Gone With The Wynns started out in 2010 as a way to share our journey with friends and family. So, it really blew our minds when other people started tuning in and joining in on the conversations. Turns out, there are a lot of people who are interested, inspired or have a deep desire to live a similar lifestyle.

sailing as a coupleSo, we started putting more effort into our videos, photos and articles. We try to be helpful, give insight and go the extra mile to help all those wanting to know more about our unsedentary way of life.

As everything has grown and progressed…so has the time, effort and expenses to keep all this going.  Maintaining this website and keeping the videos flowing can sometimes be a beast! It’s become a full time job and one that we love.

We feel (and we hope you do too!) our website is providing a value, whether that’s the entertainment or the information.  Our website is free for all and will remain that way. Our operating costs however are not free and we are incredibly grateful for the support in whatever from it may come.

Without the ongoing support of each and every one of you: the dreamers, the planners and the fellow travelers (even the vicarious ones), none of this would be possible. We wouldn’t have made it this far without all of you and certainly can’t move forward without you either.

Below are some of the ways you can help support and show some love.  You’ll notice most of them don’t cost you a dime! So, love away!

Let us know you are with us!


Shop Our Gear Store

Quite possibly the easiest way to put real money in our travel and information fund without costing you any extra pennies! When we find a product that we think is great and worth recommending, we link to it and add it to our store. We have Amazon and a select few other affiliate links throughout the site and in our Awesome Gear Store, you shop as normal and if you purchase within 24hrs we receive a minimal percentage of the sale price but at no extra cost to you.  Best part is, sometimes those affiliates offer extra discounts for you too!

We are forever grateful for your support as the funds help keep us focused on producing videos and posts. Consider it your good karma for the day (or year depending on how much you spend!).


Want to buy us a beer or simply send a few bucks our way?  Use the paypal leave a tip button below.  We’ll toast to you while we upload our next video.

    Good for you guys! We lived on our boat for 6 years and cruised 3 of them from San Francisco through Central America, the Canal and then on to Florida. It was the best time of our lives! Pinch yourselfs a lot and say look what we are doing!!!

    The time goes by fast! Stay safe and go slow!

    Hey Wynns,
    I love your travel videos and your fearlessness. I noticed that in your last video you mentioned possibly offering a cabin up for people to have a firsthand experience. My girlfriend and I would love to join you guys if that ever surfaces. We are at a crossroad deciding between homemade sprinter/promaster rv or selling plasma to fund the purchase of a cat. After 6 months on the boat how does RVing compare?

    I just want to say that after watching a lot of YouTube videos from couples going on sailing tours, whether for the first time or if they're seasoned sailors, yours are the most refreshing and enjoyable to watch.
    Both of you are enjoyable to listen to and I am already feeling invested in your endeavours, despite only seeing you for the first time only a few hours ago. You appear to be a lovely couple and this makes for a much more pleasant education process. After all we are being taught something as we watch these, aren't we? I am at least.
    The entire process of being nomads and the transition from landlubber to seamen is very entertaining and I long for the next release. Something that I too have ambitions of accomplishing in the not to far future.

    I hope you always have fair winds and following seas and may you never face any situations that cause you to tire of your journeys.

    Thank you both very much for providing me with a truly enjoyable experience, albeit a vicarious one.

    Sure you've been asked many times but does the cat produce hot water for showers or do you suffer and smile. Love your Vlogs they're inspiring I can appreciate the hard work being done behind the scenes putting them together your so professional in filming too. I watch other Vlogs, RAN sailing (I like), IMPI (u must know) Lavagabond, SV Seeker and some motorbike ones Richy Vida this side of the pond.
    Ignore the silly comments folks make, think there's a snobbishness to sailing in certain quarters, sure you need experience but you've covered so much ground already, there's no better way than meeting like minded sailors who can offer support. Watched sailing La Vagabond from the start he didn't know how to hoist a sail in the beginning, plus there's always Youtube ha! Keep it coming folks love the Vlogs

      Thanks so much Howard! Yes, we can use electricity or the motors to create hot water for showers. :) I don't know if you watched our sailing school series but our friend Terry (son of Impi) is in those...so yes we are very familiar with Impi. We also catch the occasional video from the others you mentioned when we have the bandwidth. We enjoy them all as well, lots of good stuff out there on YouTube. Much better than TV these days. Thanks for watching and thanks for the kind words.

    Pat's Backcountry Beverages:

    Made for backpackers, but no reason it could not be used by sailors.

    Make your own beer by mixing the flavour packets (49% alcohol) with carbonated water (I just used bottled soda water). I tried the Pale Rail and it tastes like a craft beer. They have two other types.
