SAILING VESSEL PAOMIA – SAILING AROUND THE WORLD

We’re Jay, Hannah and Áine, a family from UK / Ireland looking for adventure and to travel the world.

PAOMIA is a 16 metre blue water ocean sailing yacht built in 1993 by Amel. This blog will give an insight to living aboard a sailing yacht and our sailing adventures. We are typical people, a family of 4 from Ireland, who had a dream! Our dream was to purchase a sailing yacht and live aboard for months at a time. We are now living full time on WHUATI. This blog will share our experiences from our decision to go for it, finding the right boat, choosing our sailing area to start and all our sailing adventures.

If you have a dream……..just do it!
