Have you ever dreamed of letting go of your possessions and predictable patterns in favor of a simpler life full of
beauty, adventure, and serendipity?

We did just that! We're James & Julia Cognito (a.k.a. "J Squared").


In 2020, we ditched our conventional lives in Texas to move aboard a sailing catamaran named Lost Cat.


7 countries and thousands of nautical miles later,

we've landed on the beautiful island of Bonaire and live here full-time.  We have established a business offering private charters aboard our vessel for small groups to enjoy.

Get to know us on YouTube and join us for a real-life sailing adventure in Bonaire to experience Life at 8 Knots!

Follow our Adventure to Bonaire on YouTube!
