Day 4 at Sea! Brian Is it easier or harder than you though sailing with a 6 month baby? – “Well we’re still alive and no one is going crazy, so I guess easier” :p After 3 days averaging 4 hours of sleep a night I was definitely starting to feel like I needed a solid NAP. Delos was making great speed flying along at 11 knots from time to time surfing down waves when we spotted the outline of an island just after sunrise. After a pit stop at the Island of Great Inagua to clear Bahamas immigration and customs we continue for another 24 hour sprint to arrive in the isolated Ragged Islands. Oh I was just soooo happy to set the hook in crystal clear water right next to a beautiful white sand beach!! Hope you liked [...]

Day 1 at Sea! It's time to put civilization behind us and some miles under the keel! Our destination is the Ragged Islands, Bahamas some 600NM west of our current position. This passage is the culmination of months of planning and dreaming and we're as nervous as we are excited about getting underway. We pull up the hook, set full sail, and watch Puerto Rico slip over the horizon, all while feeling a bit nervous as this will be our longest passage so far. It's juist Brian and I handling the watches, the cooking and the sail changes by ourselves all while taking care of Sierra at the same time. But sailors must sail and now it's time to get underway! Much Love from us to you! Hope you enjoyed this first part of our passage. Day two coming out tomorrow :D Much Love ~ Kazza, Brian and Little Sierra SUBSCRIBE for weekly videos: https://youtube.com/svdelos SUPPORT our videos: https://svdelos.com/beer Music is one of the hardest things about bringing our episodes together!

How do you shop for 3 months of OFF THE GRID living on a sailboat? In this episode we find ourselves in the port of San Juan, Puerto Rico preparing to set sail to some very remote islands. Knowing it will be months before we can get supplies again we decide to do a huge provisioning run and fill Delos with enough food for 2 adults + 1 baby for 90 days which is 540 servings plus snacks, drinks, and other necessities like toilet paper! The food in itself is a crazy mission, and if you add in other necessities to keep Delos ship shape like fuel, oil, filters, and other boat projects we have in progress it can get out of control in a hurry. Hope you enjoy the video, and sending you lot's of love from us currently enjoying our 85th day out here in isolation! Capt.

Conditions change fast out here and it's not always blue skies and bikini weather. How can an idyllic anchorage turn into a hell hole of swell and waves in the blink of an eye? Hope you enjoy this video of a not-so-ideal night of our lives. Much Love, Kazza, Brian and little Sierra After a few hours ashore we come back to find our dingy anchor has broken loose and Maggie is washed up on the rocks. After an hour of bailing and tugging during a nasty rain squall we manage to get her afloat and back to Delos. The swell gets worse and Delos is getting hammered by waves. We can hear the roar of the break on the reef off our starboard side. It's so loud it wakes us up and we regret putting ourselves and our house in this precarious position. But it's the middle of the night, and we reason it's actually safer to wait until sunrise before moving to a better spot. Then suddenly we are woken up by a loud BANG!! Our stern anchor line has snapped, putting us broadside to the swell...

Sometimes sailing just 30 miles out of the way can lead to a completely new, unexpected experience. After receiving a message from one of our Delos tribe members we decide to sail a bit off the beaten path, to the island of St Croix. We’d only met a handful of boats that had made the trip. But those that had spoke of great diving, organic farms, and quant little towns. And strait away this little island surprised us with friendly locals, excellent scuba diving, delicious food, and great sailing! If you like the video please LIKE and SUBSCRIBE!

The post WORST NIGHT on anchor EVER! – Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 266 appeared first on SV Delos.

Our first overnight sail with The Little Nugget! We've sailed a lot of miles on Delos in all sorts of conditions ranging from flat calm to storm force winds. But now with only two people and a baby onboard we need to learn to sail differently. We need to find a way to keep watch, get some rest, prepare food, and of course take care of Sierra all at the same time! After a middle of the night departure we find some wind, unfurl the sails, and set out West for a few hundred miles of downwind sailing.

After three weeks all we have left in our fridge is two apples and a pack of beets. We decide it's time to leave our hideout and sail around the corner of the island so we can provision the boat properly. Our time at anchor getting used to life onboard with Sierra has been fantastic, but it's time to get a move on and start our sailing for the season! After heading into the beach one last time and fixing the broken dinghy engine we set sail and provision Delos with enough food and supplies to last us another month. It's time to start sailing west!

The post 1st Offshore Sail with a Baby- Learning all over again… Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 264 appeared first on SV Delos.

We are now entering our 9th week since leaving Puerto Rico and have been in isolation since early February at an uninhabited island. Ports are closed and entire countries are in lockdown mode. Movements are restricted and quarantines for sailing vessels are in place. We have just decided to stay away from civilization for a minimum of one more month, most likely longer though. Our plans for this season involved some off the grid sailing, but recent events have taken it to a whole new level.... We wanted to have a live stream with you guys and talk about how the pandemic has affected us and other sailors. We'd also love to let you know what we've been up to, and how our provisions and fuel are holding up as we begin our 54th day out here.
