Sailing on the open ocean for days! Wanna know what it’s really like? This episode is for you 🙂 It all starts off with amazing conditions, flying our beautiful spinnaker and the girls showering on deck. The crew is happy and energized. But as the conditions change so does our mood. After lack of sleep everyone is feeling super tired, not making it easier as the conditions get worse and we do something Brian has promised himself never to do again. Beating, Beating, and more beating our brains out trying to sail upwind in the ocean waves. Hope you enjoy this peak into our lives on the open ocean. A huge thank you to Grace from @calicoskiessailing for being such badass crew and to @kiril_dobrev for putting this episode together! If this episode tickled your fancy please subscribe 😀 it [...]
The post Riding the Gulfstream North – Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 287 appeared first on SV Delos.
Ahoy Delos tribe! Hope you all are ready to kick back a bit for the weekend 🙂 We hope this video helps you get off to a great start. It’s bitter sweet but ultimately we decide it’s safer to sail back to the US then stay in the Bahamas. So we set sail on our longest passage to date with the Little Nugget onboard. It’s the beginning of a 1,000 NM sail taking us from the very southern tip of the Bahamas to Annapolis, Maryland. Surfing down crazy waves, hitting the bottom, and navigating through unlit Islands at night! The hurricane season is fast approaching and we’re forced to leave our beloved spot in the Bahamas. After 4 months of lazy anchorage life we feel a little rusty doing a longer sail but need to get in the swing of [...]
The post ESCAPE PLAN! Hurricane Season Is Coming – Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 286 appeared first on SV Delos.
On our 100th day in isolation Kazza creates a “Honey-Do” list for Capt. Breeyawn! It’s time to get our butts in gear and prepare Delos for her escape. We feel blessed to have spent so much time with such amazing people, but the time has come and we need to leave before we’re caught between a hurricane and a pandemic. Before we all set sail our lovely friends Conor and Steph decide to get married! The entire group pitches in with their own special contribution to put together a beach wedding in our uninhabited little paradise. This is a real heart-felt edit and many tears were shed in the process. Fair winds and sending much love. Hope you enjoyed it! LIKE and SUBSCRIBE would make my day!

The post Private Island Beach Wedding! 100 Days in Isolation – Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 285 appeared first on SV Delos.
Crystal clear water, unexplored beaches, spearfishing, an outdoor movie theater, and even tricky boat projects- this amazing edit by Kazza has it all! Imagine waking up and wandering outside your house to find the most incredibly calm and beautiful view you could imagine. We’re floating in a sea of crystal clear glass! What a special way to wake up and start the day :). After spearfishing for some dinner and exploring a new beach we take advantage of the zero knots of wind and set up a full on movie theater at the beach and watch the legendary “Captain Ron”- a must see if you haven’t already. And if you’re interested in boat projects Brian troubleshoots our batteries and spends a few days in the sweltering heat on the heater install. Hope you enjoy this weeks video! Please like and [...]
The post Living in the WORLDS LARGEST swimming pool! – Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 284 appeared first on SV Delos.
A call on the VHF from a local Bahamian family out fishing springs us into action! We get so much help and kindness from people in the places we visit, when we can help them out it’s our way of saying Thank You So Much. The weather is changing and it’s time to get a move on! We leave our beloved spot at the TTYC and seek shelter at Buena Vista Island for the night, only to spot some strange flashing lights in the sky. Is it a UFO or merely an atmospheric phenomena? We hope someone knows more than we do! After an awesome sail to Hog Cay we are in the middle of cooking Pigs In A Blanket for a party when we get an EMERGENCY CALL on the VHF. A local family was out fishing and their [...]
The post MEDICAL EMERGENCY! What would you do?! Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 283 appeared first on SV Delos.
We decide to fill our scuba tanks and take the TTYC members for a scuba dive to check out some local sharks in the area! We return to find the anchorage is being circled by a mysterious plane which we later make contact with… The weather is absolutely amazing and I take time for a little kiteboard session. We then setup the Yacht Club for a massive birthday celebration for our friend Andy and party the night away! Hope you all are having a spectacular weekend- Sending much love and hope you are all safe and healthy.

Things are starting to get strange… We resort to the old bartering system trading haircuts for laundry and labor for dinners. Some members of the Two Titty Yacht Club are getting creative and organize a full on monster mash challenge for the group! I love the way Brian described this time- “Its quite unlike anything I’ve ever experienced” Hope your having a great day!

I can’t think of a worse thing to happen right now, just as we got all of this fresh food. And now it’s all going bad. 😭 Things were going so well… Then the drama begins when stuff starts to break. Just after getting stocked up with fresh food both our freezers decide to stop working and all our hard won food starts to rot in the tropical heat. Luckily we live in the best neighborhood EVER and our fellow sailors come to the rescue with repair skills and supplies. Our little sailing community comes together for a full day of moonshining on the beach, old school style with a pot still powered by beach driftwood! Hope you enjoy this episode!

The post When STUFF BREAKS 😭 in the Middle of Nowhere – Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 280 appeared first on SV Delos.
Our food is running low and the Bahamas is on lock down, but we have a plan… We begin our 59th day of isolation with an absolutely amazing sail flying both spinnakers as we move to a new uninhabited island. Running low on food Brian goes spearfishing but we’re nearly out of fresh food for Sierra so after a week of preparation and planning we cross our fingers that the Mailboat arriving to a nearby island will have some food boxes with our name on it. I like how Brian summed up the day – “Most exhausting but single coolest grocery shopping I’ve ever done.” Sending much love to you all.

The post How long can we survive out here? Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 279 appeared first on SV Delos.
Delos, Delos this is the US COAST GUARD on 16 OVER! It’s not every morning you hear the US Coastguard calling you on the radio, then doing a close fly-by when you’re anchored in the middle of no where. I definitely felt nervous as Brian answered the VHF call. We’re anchored in an incredible spot and with 0kn of wind its like our house is floating in a swimming pool. Brian heads out to catch some dinner before diving head first into some boat work that involves drilling a pretty big hole in the side of the boat 🙂 If your in the mood for a little bit of everything good you will like this episode.

What to do when all the liquor stores in the Bahamas are CLOSED until further notice? Lucky for us we just happen to have 2 stills onboard! Brian gets right on it and starts brewing alcohol for the whole anchorage. We also navigate the rules and regulations for the pandemic and create a social bubble of isolated sailors. And in the mist of all this craziness we celebrate Brians birthday on a gluttonous day with good food, foil boarding and fires on the beach with new found friends. Hope you enjoy this one.
