Chantey under sail

Welcome aboard SV Chantey.

Join liveaboard skippers Ivan and Jane Chevous as we follow our dream, wandering the seven seas on our sailing ketch Chantey, a Westsail 42 designed by Bill Crealock.

Share our adventures as we become ‘Barefoot Sailors’ – sailing simply and sustainably.

So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain
