I couldn't love this sunscreen anymore if I tried. Before stumbling upon Little urchin, I would lather my children in sunscreen full of chemicals. I hated doing so but I felt like it was the lesser of two evils. I'd pick up my son from childcare and the smell of sunscreen would be so pungent, I simply knew it couldn't be good for his little body. Living on a boat in the Caribbean meant my kids would be exposed to a lot of sunshine and I knew I didn't want to use a chemical laden sunscreen for two years straight. Not only could the chemicals have been harmful to my family but they would have been bad for the ocean and my boat (stains cushions). Little Urchin's unique formulation contains only zinc oxide as the active ingredient, which is safe to use on sensitive skin, it's also safe for the marine environment. It's water resistant for three hours, is preservative free and is suitable for the whole family (6 months and up) as both a body and face sunscreen. Best of all it actually works! Even though I live on a boat, I still like to look my best, so their tinted sunscreen is my go to facial sunscreen. It adds a subtle hint of colour, without looking like I'm wearing a face full of makeup to the beach. Their daily natural moisturiser is so nourishing on my dry skin after a day at the beach and it's gentle ingredients are perfect for sensitive skin like mine.
The Sailing to Roam little pirates absolutely love their Bedhead hats. The comfortable fit and soft stretch cotton enables a superior fuss free fit ready for loads of fun in the sun. From sailing to sandcastles, fishing or hiking, the Bedhead bucket hat is the perfect partner in crime. The brim has remained firm while the chin strap has saved the hats from walking the plank on a number of occasions. Belonging to three little pirates is hard work but the Bedhead hats have stood up to the challenge. They have kept their shape and haven't faded in the harsh Caribbean sun. When mum decides enough is enough, the bedhead hats are thrown in the washing machine with the rest of the families clothes. Cold machine wash on gentle cycle, line dry in shade and they're ready to sail the high seas again. Not only are they practical but they also look great, they are definitely the cutest little pirates in the Caribbean.
Sandy Feet Australia's swimwear is a firm favorite on our boat. They have stood up to the test in the harsh Caribbean sun and after months of almost daily use, they still look great. They are fade and stretch resistant which has made them outlast our other swimwear and their USPF50 rating provides the coverage the children's young skin needs from the sun. The rash vests and shorts come in lots of adorable patterns yet are able to be mixed and matched perfectly. Their adult range is equally stylish and Dave and I both love our rash vests when we are swimming, snorkeling or paddle boarding. If you want high quality swimwear at reasonable prices then Sandy Feet Australia's range is for you.
This program has been an invaluable tool when it comes to planning our passages. We use the departure planner to select the best time to leave and run the weather routing tool to ensure we will have a fast, safe and comfortable passage. The Predict Wind Offshore app has excellent satellite connectivity for those offshore journeys and has been optimized for low speed data connections. Because forecast accuracy is paramount, Predict Wind uses four different weather models to compare forecasts for maximum confidence. It can be used on a tablet, phone or laptop and best of all its easy to use! We wouldn't be without this awesome program!
These seats have been the perfect addition to our boat. They are comfortable, practical and multifunctional. Whether we're on passage and requiring comfortable seats in the cockpit, having cocktails on our bow or at a beach BBQ, our Sport-a-Seat's are the perfect seat for any occasion. The durable material and solid internal parts also make them perfect for the harsh conditions of boat life. When we first got our Sport-a-Seat's, it took my usually skeptical husband all of 10 seconds to declare these seats the best he had ever sat on. We absolutely love our seats and would recommend them to all cruisers!
We are so excited to team up with the Red Paddle Co gang. Their inflatable boards are perfect for those living aboard a boat as they can be deflated and stored below if need be. We have been on a several passages where we have had waves crashing over our bow and at those moments we were so grateful for having a SUP that was stored in a bag safely below. Our SUP inflates in minutes and once inflated, is rigid and stable. Its fun to use and even our 4 year old takes himself for a little paddle at times. SUPing is excellent exercise and also a great way for Dave or I to get away and have some time to ourselves. Its useful to explore shallow shorelines or places our dinghy can not go and it also makes a great floating bar! We love our Red Paddle Co board!
