LIFE ON A SAILBOAT

August 29, 2017
Have you ever dreamt of living life on a yacht? Waking up to the rocking ocean & jumping overboard to start the day… Well our campaign star Zippy does just that. After growing up on a sailing boat with her family, she’s recently moved back onto one with her boyfriend in New York while they build their house. Find out what living on a sailboat has taught her…

ON HER UPBRINGING:
“I grew up on a sailboat on Waiheke Island, New Zealand with my family. We’d just sail around and we went to school on the island so we’d row into school. We were anchored in a bay that was close to our school so my brother and I would row in, put the dinghy there, go up to school and then row home again.”

ON TRADING HER NEW YORK CITY APARTMENT FOR A SAILBOAT…
“We just moved back onto a sailboat. I’ve been wanting to do it for a while because we were living in an apartment in New York city which was like a closet and our view was a brick wall so I needed nature. We looked everywhere we could live in the city and there was nothing we could afford that we wanted. Then we looked at Montauk and ended up buying land there together. But it takes a while to build a house so we got a sailboat in the meantime to live on.”

ON HER MORNING ROUTINE:
“You wake up, put the coffee pod on and jump overboard. Then you have your coffee and then you’re done haha. You don’t really need much else!”

WHAT LIVING ON A SAILBOAT HAS TAUGHT HER:
“You definitely don’t need much. You can’t have stuff because in a small space if there’s one thing out, it looks messy. So you definitely want to have minimal everything.”

“We have solar panels so you do everything in tune with nature, if it’s going to be really cloudy for a week; you know to use less power. Or if it hasn’t been raining, you don’t use as much water. So that’s really cool because you feel way more connected. Also with sailing, you’re using nature to move, no motor or anything so it’s the truest form of travel. You’re on the water and using wind so you’re using nature to move. You really feel part of the world.”
