Sailing Television Show - Distant Shores TV

On the Beach!!

We are exploring the Exuma Island group in the Bahamas. Such amazing water colours! We find a shallow place where we can put our Southerly 480 on the sand and try beaching her, then wait for low tide to dry out.

Sail Away Weeks


Dreaming of sailing away but still have a lot of questions?
Need to convince your partner that traveling on a sailboat could be wonderful?
Or maybe you just long to be out sailing in sunshine on sparkling seas but commitments are holding you back.
We have a solution…

Where has all the water gone? Sailing Exumas

We take you sailing on the Great Bahama Bank to the Bahamian island chain of the Exumas where at Staniel Cay we dive in a magical underwater cave and learn that pigs can swim. Next we head down-island to explore shallow areas of tidal sand bores and play on pristine sand banks.

Hurricane Strategies for Sailors

If you ever worry about what it would be like to be hit by a hurricane or tropical storm on your boat, this video will answer a lot of your questions. Paul and I have gone through several named storms throughout our 30 years of cruising so, using video footage from our own experiences as well as others, we cover how and when hurricanes are formed, how to track them and strategies for weathering named storms on your boat in a marina, tied to a mangrove or hauled out in a boat yard. We also discuss insurance coverage for hurricane season.

Aground! Shallow Water Piloting in the Bahamas

This time on Distant Shores sail from the Turks and Caicos to the farthest out-islands in the Bahamas and explore with our shallow draft Southerly 480.

Cruising Outpost Cover Boy


Paul made it to the top as a rare male cover boy on Cruising Outpost magazine…

We have always enjoyed Cruising Outpost - brought to you by the same reprobates who produced Latitudes and Attitudes Magazine. This is a free “Sample Copy” but normally sells for $7.99 in print, and $8.99 Canadian

We love your channel and your show. You two are the "originals". We look forward to meeting you some day Sailing Pau Hana - YouTube
6 years ago my husband and I were channel surfing and stumbled upon Distant Shores. We were hooked... What is really fun is that through the show, we developed a real interest in learning to sail and last summer took our first sailing lessons and got our first ASA certification… soon we'll be able to rent bare boats and sail in the Caribbean. We joined our local sailing club… All this is because Paul and Sheryl make sailing so approachable and appealing. Mary Via Email
Yeah! The original sailing badasses. Before it was cool and hipster to buy a sailing boat and sail the seven seas and air it on YouTube. This crew was doing it first! I would get up in the dark winter mornings, and watch your TELEVISION show, dreaming. That's right! These Canadian sailing badasses were on T.V.! "Satellitesos" Via Instagram
The Shards put together a great show! It's a wonderful way to see the world with a great insight into the cruising lifestyle. Top notch entertainment that will keep you wanting more Well done indeed!
