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!

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 the keel against the bottom. A middle of the night move your house drill is required to get us back to deeper water and safety!

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 this passage videos! So much fun to edit and so many great memories! Give us a thumbs up if you enjoyed watching 😀 Much Love ~ Kazza, Brian and little Sierra

Why SAILING makes me NERVOUS – Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 269

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 just 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 😀 Much Love ~ Kazza, Brian and Little Sierra

Sailing OFF THE GRID for 3 months- How do we shop? Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 268

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. Breeyawn, Kazza, and The Little Nugget

WORST NIGHT on anchor EVER! – Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 266

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…

WHY do people skip this CARIBBEAN island?! – Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 265

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!

1st Offshore Sail with a Baby- Learning all over again… Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 264

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.

Our fridge is empty! Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 263

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!
