SPLASHED! Our Destination? Sailing North until it gets cold! – Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 291

I like how Brian described it- “It doesn’t matter where we go, but step 1 is to untie the lines and just go somewhere, anywhere.” After 2 weeks of hard labor the day is finally here and our home is going back into the water 🙂 Being back feels absolutely AMAZING! After a big provisioning it’s time to set sail, but first we need to figure out where to go. . And that’s exactly what we did! We made a rough plan to sail north until it gets cold. We go through the narrow C&D canal and get a visitor out in the middle of nowhere :p

The reality of OWNING A SAILBOAT! – Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 290

Imagine taking your house into a harsh environment, shaking it around and dousing it with salt water. How much stuff would break? Then move your house hundreds of miles from the nearest hardware store and we find out just what it takes to maintain an offshore sailboat.

After 1 week of hard labor the projects are coming along nicely, but there is still an endless list of that needs tackling. An upgraded lithium battery bank installed, refrigeration compressor and cold place replaced, and of course the damn toilet decided to back up in the yard and cause a disgusting mess and I’m forced deep into some really shitty work, LITERALLY!!

If you’re curious about the LiFePO4 batteries check the links below:

We’re also continuing our search for the best eco-friendly bottom paint! The paint we used is not currently available to be sold commercially, however if you want to check it out visit https://www.magicantifoul.com/

Hope you enjoyed this episode showing the less glamorous part of what it’s like to won a boat. And also Brian’s summary on how to save some serious money on labour.

Much love from from us! Kazza, Brian and little Sierra

DOWN and DIRTY in the Boat Yard! – Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 289

If you like BOAT WORK this video is for you :). We haul Delos out of the water for some well needed maintenance! Brian dives head first into what feels like a million projects… Sanding, painting, patching blisters in the keel, fixing a corroded through hull, servicing the prop and bow thruster just to mention a few.

I’ve always admired Brian’s incredible work ethic and the way he can pretty much fix anything AKA “McGyver” 🙂 haha! Hope you enjoyed seeing this other side of what its like to live on a sailboat full time. Many HUGS! Kazza, Brian and little Sierra

PS. A huge thanks to Ryan for being such a superman and to Jeff and Camron for making us feel so at home 🙂

HORRIFIC Sailing Into a DARK VORTEX of Wind and Rain – Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 288

Beating our brains out sailing into 35 knot winds while getting pounded by BIG waves and never ending squalls…. This video definitely shows the less glamorous part of our lifestyle! Brian described it pretty well – “I don’t think any of us wish we where here right now.”

Not only was our sanity put on test but Delos took quite a beating too. With constant wind shifts we rip our sail and the bow starts filling up with bucketloads of salt water every wave we hit!! NOT IDEAL! It was a scary tiring couple of days but we made it through and get a very warm welcome into the USA.

Hope you enjoyed this bumpy ride! Many HUGS from us! Kazza, Brian and little Sierra

Riding the Gulfstream North – Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 287

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!

ESCAPE PLAN! Hurricane Season Is Coming – Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 286

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 things quickly as we find ourselves surfing down ocean swells trying to sail through a cut between two islands. It’s so exciting to be sailing again 😀 Hope you enjoy it too! Many virtual hugs from us! Xooxxo – Kazza, Brian and Little Sierra

Private Island Beach Wedding! 100 Days in Isolation – Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 285

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! HUGS ~ Kazza, Brian and little Sierra

Living in the WORLDS LARGEST swimming pool! – Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 284

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.

MEDICAL EMERGENCY! What would you do?! Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 283

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 daughter cut herself pretty badly after falling on a conch shell. Since we have a huge medical kit onboard we got in touch over the VHF and organized for them to tie up to Delos so we could render care.

Tracked down by a mysterious plane! Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 282

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. XXOO- Brian, Kazza, and The Little Nugget

Birth of the Two Titty Yacht Club! – Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 281

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! Sending many virtual hugs from us 😀 If you like the video please subscribe would make my day.

When STUFF BREAKS 😭 in the Middle of Nowhere – Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 280

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! If you do please subscribe to the channel. Would make my day 😀 HUGS! Kazza, Brian and little Sierra

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. XXOO- Brian, Kazza, and The Little Nugget

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

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

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 our lives living on a boat in isolation. If you like the chance to come sailing with us in the future Join us on www.patreon.com/svdelos LOVE, Kazza, Brian and The Little Nugget

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!

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. XXOO- Brian, Kazza, and The Little Nugget
