How long can we survive out here? Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 279

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.

Buzzed by the US COASTGUARD chopper! – Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 278

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. Sending much love your way! XooxXo Kazza, Brian and Sierra SUBSCRIBE for weekly videos: https://youtube.com/svdelos SUPPORT our videos: https://patreon.com/svdelos Music is one of the […]

OH NO! The Liquor Stores are Closed?!? Our SOCIAL BUBBLE in Paradise – Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 277

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. If you do please give it a thumbs up and subscribe would make my day 🙂 Kazza, Brian and little Sierra SUBSCRIBE for weekly videos: https://youtube.com/svdelos SUPPORT our videos: https://patreon.com/svdelos Music is one of the hardest things about bringing our episodes together!

DAY IN THE LIFE- Our 56th day of ISOLATION on a SAILBOAT! – Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 276

Join us for a typical day of our self isolation on our 53 foot sailboat home! It just so happens to be our 56th day of being away from civilization in this uninhabited island paradise. We wake up, do some normal stuff like eat and all that, but then Brian decides to use our excess solar power by brewing up a batch of moonshine. He also wires up our power inverter so we can run the laundry off the solar and batteries and save even more diesel fuel. After our daily chores are done I head into the island for a walk and Brian goes spear fishing to catch us some dinner, which turns out to be a conch and grouper chowder. YUMMY!!! Life is simple but good out here for our little family. Hope you enjoy this peak into […]

The 2nd most EXCLUSIVE YACHT CLUB in the world! Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 275

Welcome to one of the most spectacular places on earth! After weeks spent in isolation and craving the company of fellow sailors we decide to sail to an island rumored to have a yacht club built by locals and cruisers on a remote, desolate island. After dodging the weekly cold front bringing northerly winds we arrive to find a random mix of cruisers anchored in front of an idyllic beach on a deserted island! We immediately set out on a fishing mission to bring home dinner for a BBQ we were invited to and have great luck but decide to BBQ something else entirely….. At this point you might be wondering what is the most exotic yacht club in the world? Well you’ll just have to wait until we show it to you :). Hope you enjoy the video! Sending […]

STUCK ABOARD for 5 days of nasty weather! Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 274

What do you do stuck onboard for 5 days as your house is beaten by the wind and waves? As sailors we live and die by the weather. Every morning wake up, make some coffee, then check the weather. Sometimes the forecast is nice and we can stay put, but sometimes we gotta move our house to somewhere with better protection. In this episode we decide to move Delos to a new island to seek better protection. We have a fantastic sail set the hook, and begin exploring the amazing uninhabited island of Buena Vista in the remote Ragged Islands of the Bahamas. Soon the wind starts to kick up and we get pinned onboard for 5 days of terrible wind and weather! Sending much love to everyone out there.

How we FEED OUR FAMILY off the grid – Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 273

Are you ready for some spear fishing, catch and cook action from the largest swimming pool on earth?!? We wake up to find Delos anchored in perfect calm conditions and decide to take our dinghy Maggie around to the normally rough and windy side of the island to go food shopping for the week. This is our version of the supermarket, but WAY WAY more fun! Within a few hours of spear fishing I have enough lobster, conch, and fish for our little family to last for days. We proceed to go on a sea food eating extravaganza dreaming up delicious catch and cook recipes that delight our taste buds. It’s not all fun and games though as in the middle of the night a sudden wind shift puts Delos on a lee shore and we find our selves bashing […]

Catch and Cook from ISOLATION – Uninhabited Island Paradise! Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 272

Catch and Cook Lobster from our sailboat! Join us as the days stretch into weeks, and the weeks into months as we begin months of isolation in paradise. With months of supplies aboard we begin our exploration of the Ragged Islands, an uninhabited island paradise located in the very southern portion of the Bahamas! It’s the perfect place to be for us as we’re set up to make our own power and water and best of all I’m able to support our family by fishing only a few hours a week!

FATIGUED at SEA (part 3 OF 3) Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 271

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 […]
