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!

Stormy Cape Hatteras passage... it was 2 days around from Beaufort around to the Chesapeake and this was our arrival. We curled the main and reefed the jib and got 40 knots in the front as it passed over! Now we’re exploring the Chesapeake and on to Annapolis 😅

Look who came for dinner 😅 day 3 of our passage north from the Bahamas we caught this 20 lb Mahi-mahi. We’re heading north hitching a ride on the Gulf Stream making nearly 11 knots running downwind with twin headsails. 7 knots boat speed PLUS 4 knots from the current !  Wow what a passage...
