Gettin’ Deep into the Grenada Cruiser Scene – Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 198

Grenada is a black hole that will suck you in, or at least that’s what we’ve heard, and after spending a little time here we can see why! In this episode we have some incredible sailing, we say goodbye to Eric, Maureen, and Colin and life returns to normal on Delos. At least for a few hours…. Rick from Sophisticated Lady tells us of a dinghy cruiser concert, which sounds too cool to pass up so we move Delos over to Hog Island and get deep into the heart of the cruiser scene with one hell of a party!

One Helluva sail to Grenada! – Sailing Vessel Delos Ep.197

The sail from Trinidad to Grenada is supposed to be eazy-peazy right? Just a leisurely 80NM sail to another island. NOPE!!! It turns out to be one of the roughest overnight passages we’ve had this season with squalls gusting into the 40 knot range that knocked us around all night long with big seas and current against us. Not to mention we had two fresh greenhorns onboard, Eric and Maureen, who were our Patron Crew Contest winners for this leg. There’s no better way to break in a new sailor than with a good overnight passage in some hectic conditions 🙂

CARNIVAL in TRINIDAD! We be Limin’! Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 196

CARNIVAL, WHOA! From the mud drenched sunrise parties to the extravagant costumes and days full of limin’ & chippin’ – our few weeks spent on Trinidad were truly the experience of a lifetime!! It became even more interesting when we dug into the history of this legendary event which spans centuries, cultures, continents and religions. We hope we did a decent job at capturing the vibe and maybe even inspired some of YOU to check it out yourselves one day 😀  View More

Untouched TOBAGO! We made it to the CARIBBEAN! Episode 195

Did we seriously just sail into the Caribbean!? After almost 10 years sailing around the world, we’ve made it to the sailors playground. The Caribbean is a mecca for cruisers and we just arrived into Tobago, the southern jewel! We are welcomed onto this beautiful island with 75% rum, waterfalls in protected rainforests forests and some of the best scuba diving of our LIVES!

Fair Winds, peace, and love from Brian, Karin, Alex, and Brady.  View More

SLOW TV – Sailing Up the Maroni River, French Guiana – Sailing Vessel Delos

This is a bit of an experiment, and you are the guinea pigs he he 🙂

On a recent sail we were inspired by a TED talk on the concept of Slow TV. The idea is to capture an experience from a point of view over a long time span. In this case we were exploring the Maroni river in French Guiana. We hooked up a few Go Pro’s on Delos and let them run until the battery went dead. We also recorded the audio separately with our external microphone.

The video is 3 hours and 40 minutes long and meant as ambient background with audio. Maybe put it on the TV while you eat or a second monitor while you work. I dunno but hope you enjoy!

Love Brady, Alex, Brian, and Karin.
PS- Here is a link to the TED talk if you are interested: https://www.ted.com/talks/thomas_hellum_the_world_s_most_boring_television_and_why_it_s_hilariously_addictive?language=en

A SAILBOAT up a South American Jungle river? – Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 194

Why would you sail your home up a jungle river in French Guyana?   Well because it’s fun obviously! One of our favorite things is exploring off the beaten path in Delos, and taking our sailing home up a fresh water river is too cool to pass up. We get Delos way back off of a small tributary and anchor up for some dinghy exploring in Maggie. We notice that the animals are extremely skittish, and and find a patch of forest that’s been utterly destroyed by illegal logging.

We return to the town of Maroni to seek answers and try to figure out what’s going on. We tour a traditional village in Suriname, witness the local carnival, and finally end up a a wildlife sanctuary where we get some answers about what’s going on with the ultra-skittish monkeys. Then when our trip to French Guyana just couldn’t get any more random we get access to the European Spaceport and are able to film an Ariane V rocket launch! Incredible!!!

Fair Winds, peace, and love from Brian, Karin, Alex, and Brady.

Sailing into a NIGHT SQUALL!!!! Life in the ITC ZED- Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 193

NIGHT SQUALL!!!!! On day 9 of a 1,400 mile passage we get hit in the middle of the night by a massive squall! The wind is hitting a solid 45 knots and the rain is driven so hard it’s blinding us. We accidentally jibe, take a wave in the salon hatch, and it takes all hands on Deck to get Delos under control and properly reefed as we cruise down the waves making over 14 knots. That pretty much sums up life in the ITC ZED….

The next day we sight land and sail Delos into the jungle rivers of French Guyana. We’re struck by the quiet and calmness the jungle river provides us after so many days rocking and rolling on the ocean. Time to explore French Guyana!

Holy hell, Kiril did an incredible job editing this beast of an open ocean sailing episode. We say a sad goodbye to Brazil and set sail northwest….to…we don’t really know YET. Along the open ocean passage we visit remote reefs, LOSE OUR DRONE, celebrate a birthday and put BLUE through her equator crossing ceremony! View More

Hidden Treasures of Fernando de Noronha – Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 191

Time to explore the hidden treasures of Fernando de Noronha! We start off by exploring Brazil’s most celebrated beaches. Feeling a pull to the ocean we long to breath underwater so we set off on a scuba diving adventure, and man was it a real treat! We had encounters with sharks, rays, and barracuda. Then, to top off an already incredible experience we scuba dive with something we’ve never, ever experienced before! I hope you have as much fun watching this video as I did editing it. Much Love ~ Kazza and The Delos Crew

Sailing to the Most Famous Island in Brazil! Fernando de Noronha – Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 190

What is the most exotic island in all of Brazil? You know, something with with sand beaches, crystal clear waters, dolphins, turtles, and of course awesome bars? We asked this question a lot and the reply from most people was “Man, you gotta check out Fernando de Noronha!” So we decided to sail there and check it out for ourselves. It’s our last stop in Brazil before setting sail for French Guyana, and we experienced all the island had to offer. View More

Gentleman Don’t Sail To Weather – Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 188

We try not to sail to weather… Ever! It’s sort of like a big night of drinking, you promise you’ll never do it again. But…. We have a date with the airport in Recife and decide to make tracks north. We have 5 days of headwinds and current against us, but we make it to Recife. The only casualty- Mr. Brady’s laptop battles a wave and loses 🙁

We arrive just in time to greet Karin’s brother Ragnar, and say goodbye to our beloved Leesir Ninja Beast as she heads back home to friends and family in Austria.

Installing Lithium Batteries on a Sailboat!!! Part 1- Sailing Vessel Delos

Our Mission- Get rid of propane and move into the 21st century with induction cooking! We install a bank of Lithium batteries, a big ass inverter, and an induction cooktop. This video covers the installation process and what tweaks we made on Delos to get the system working.

Check out https://svdelos.com/lithium for some FAQ and more info on what we installed.

I think I will do a Part 2 that covers the rest of the configuration of the charge controllers, and what we do to replace the old propane oven. Stay Tuned, and thanks so much for all your support that makes these videos possible 🙂

Hope you enjoyed, and learned a little something like I did. For more of these types of videos please give the video a LIKE! Or buy us a beer ha ha 🙂 http://svdelos.com/beer
