About SailingBritican

Sales 424
On Etsy since 2014

Sold our house and all our possessions, bought a boat and now sailing around the world!


In April 2014, my husband, 3-year old daughter (at the time) and I took a massive leap into the unknown. We sold everything we had, purchased a 56' sailboat, and left our old world behind in search of something more fulfilling. The boat is named Britican - BRITish and amerICAN as hubby is a Brit, I'm American and our daughter is both.

Hubby and I were tired of working hard to pay for a big house, a nice car, processed food, and unfulfilling life experiences. When we found time to do something fun we were too tired to do it.

One thing led to another and we decided that we wanted to say 'screw-it' to our old lives and trade them in for a new one. The end result was making a monumental decision to pull our daughter out of school, leave our friends and family, and set out on the adventure of a lifetime.

So far we've sailed over 30,000 miles covering Gibraltar, North Africa, Malta, Sicily, Greece, Turkey, Spain, France, Canary Islands, crossed the Atlantic Ocean, and worked our way up to the east coast of America starting from St Vincent and the Grenadines and back down again. Our travels through the Caribbean took us to over 20 islands.

Thus far we have absolutely no regrets. Our lives are more fulfilling then they've ever been and we count our blessings every day.

In an effort to share our story and build up a potential business that fits with our new lifestyle we've opened this Etsy shop.

We have a range of t-shirts for men, women, and children and have plans to expand the range. We also have Sarongs, pillow cushions, and more.

To follow us on our journey, please follow us on Twitter, look up 'SailingBritican' on Facebook and stop by the website to discover where we are and what we're doing:

Thank you for stopping by.

Big smiles,

Welcome to SailingBritican. My husband, 4-year-old-daughter and I are currently sailing around the world in a sailboat. We became fed up with the rat race - working long hours, eating processed food, failing to spend quality time with friends and family. So, we sold everything we had, bought a boat and the plan is to circumnavigate the world in the course of 5 years. That being said, we created a shop (with the help of our friends and family back home) to share a bit of our travels with you. Get the full story on

Returns and exchanges
If you are not completely satisfied, I will be happy to exchange or refund your money. Contact me before taking any action. I am sure we can work out any problem you may have.
Paypal and all major credit cards.
If you find the shipping too high, email me and I will find out if there is an less expensive way to ship the goods. After a recent problem with shipping, I will hold the right to ship in the packaging I choose so there is no damage whatsoever (rain, sleet or snow). International shipping is based on a four pound weight limit (international envelope). Please, if you want it insured you will have to pay, this keeps my cost down. It is not included in the shipping fee.Thank you.
Additional policies and FAQs
I try to have everything on hand, but sometimes I run out of supplies. Therefore, shipping will be delayed until I can stock up, especially with large and special orders.
