Our WHOLE LIFE Is On The Line…Is this the RIGHT CALL? Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 399

When a Hurricane is headed towards your family, your home, your business, your entire life…What do you do? As captain of a boat, you make hundreds of decisions every day. Some big, some small, some inconsequential…but when the stakes are this high and the information available to you is changing by the hour, it’s a pretty heavy feeling knowing that this is one decision you ABSOLUTELY have to get right.

 

As Hurricane Kay began to develop, we quickly realized that we needed to start making some moves- not only to try and create distance between ourselves and its projected path, but also because our insurance would only cover  anything that might happen to Delos in a named storm if we were north of a certain latitude.  But the decision of how we should respond was far from easy to make- as forecasts changed and information started reaching us from other cruisers in different locations, our heads started to spin a bit.  This was an extremely exhausting time for us mentally and emotionally…the anticipation, the unknowns, the weight of the decisions that we needed to make, the preparation, the anxiety…We hope you enjoy this episode as we explore some of these feelings, share how we go about making decisions like these and processing the information available to us, and take you through how we prepare for the serious weather that was headed our way.

3 Boats, ONE DISASTER 😱 Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 398

Boat life is full of ups and downs, but lately cruising has really been keeping us on our toes with challenge after challenge. So it wouldn’t be Friday without another crisis on board to share with you 😂 After Kazza made a full recovery from her scary run in with Salmonella poisoning, it finally felt like everything was right again in our floating world. So we let our hair down, whipped up some margaritas, and threw a raft up party to celebrate my amazing Swedish Princess’ birthday. But the next day, mother nature had a different present for us in mind, and things went sideways REAL fast.

WE NEED A HOSPITAL 🚨 NO HELP In Sight…Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 397

ISOLATION. It’s one of the reasons we’ve chosen to spend our lives at sea…sailing thousands upon thousands of miles to explore the farthest reaches of the earth, finding little pockets of peace, solitude, and unbelievable beauty away from the hustle and bustle of civilisation. But what happens when things go wrong, and the same isolation you were seeking is now what stands between you and getting help when the person you love most in the world is having a medical emergency.

We’ve had a few other sketchy situations over the years, but this one really hit home and made us realize how vulnerable we really are when we’re off the grid. In this case we were about ten hours of travel away from medical care…but we’ve often been much further away from civilization like an ocean crossing for example. So as stressful as it was, looking back on it we felt so lucky that we were able to get the help we needed. And since many of you are current or future cruisers, we just wanted to also take this time to encourage you to make sure you have a thorough and well organized medical kit on board, and that you know what you have and how to use it. This is our go to resource that we keep on board, we highly recommend you pick up a copy or something similar. It’s called Advanced First Aid Afloat and it focuses on how to handle almost any medical situation you might encounter at sea without access to help from a medical professional. Here’s a link to find it on Amazon:

We also made an episode all about our medical kit and what we keep on board:

And we have a post on our website with a rundown of the contents of our medical kit plus lots of other great info (just scroll down a little bit to “Offshore Medical Kit”)

The Quickest Way to RUIN an Anchorage…WTF?! 🤬 Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 396

There’s a secret lurking here, waiting to TERRORIZE US 😱

 

We pull up to another picture perfect anchorage in the Sea of Cortez in Mexico surrounded by gorgeous clear water, immaculate beaches, cactus dotted hillsides and mountains…it wasn’t until the sun began to set that we realized what a grave mistake we had made by coming here. It’s so wild how something so tiny can absolutely DESTROY such an otherwise perfect paradise.

Is This SAFE? WILD SEA LION ENCOUNTER!!! Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 395

Big BULLS Barking all around us, playful pups, the stench of rotting fish, and LOTS of mating! Say hello to the Sea Lions of Cortez!

After some of the best spinnaker sailing conditions we’ve had in ages, we arrive to Los Islotes, the southernmost Sea Lion rookery in the entire world. This rocky outcropping is not only incredibly beautiful, it’s also home to upwards of 500 California Sea Lions. We get up close and personal with some of its curious and playful residents in the middle of mating season, so it was pretty wild to say the least! And of course little Sierra was the most impressed of all by the antics.

And of after a few days of cruiser bliss, something was bound to break on board, so Brian digs into some more electrical system trouble shooting. Can you guess what failed this time??? 😂

Sailing 80° NORTH DOCUMENTARY – Where is Svalbard? (EP 1 of 4)

A few years ago, we went on a once in a lifetime sailing expedition into the Arctic Circle where we encountered gnarly and volatile conditions, calving glaciers, polar bears, walruses, beluga whales, some of the most insane landscapes we’ve ever witnessed, and so much more.  It was a truly unforgettable experience, and we captured it all and put together a 4 part docu-series which turned out to be our largest creative undertaking to date. We’re super proud of filming, editing, and producing this series of videos and wanted to make something above and beyond what you would normally find on YouTube. We’ve decided to release this series independently which as you might imagine is no small feat. Today we are beyond stoked to share Part 1 in it’s entirety with you on YouTube for the first time ever!  We hope you enjoy this first glimpse into an incredible part of our planet. If you’ like to watch the rest of the series, and support small and independent productions, please visit 80northseries.com where you’ll notice our “Pay What’s Fair” model. It’s just as easy as it sounds. Just type in the amount you’d like to pay to watch the rest of the series and that’s about it!

What happens when you take 8 warm weather sailors with 20 cameras and put them on a 48 foot sailboat in the High Arctic Wilderness for 3 weeks? Join us and watch this 4 part series dedicated to the expedition to find out! It’s 2 hours of pure sailing entertainment! Visit 80northseries.com to stream episodes 2, 3, and 4 right now!

Episode 1 – Where in the world is Svalbard!? (29 minutes):

Turns out, it took some investigating from these warm weather sailors to actually find out. The Crew of SV Delos flies into the high arctic and meets up with their new friends from SV Isbjorn. But before setting sail, they must get guns to protect themselves from polar bears, and provision enough food and liquor to hold them over in freezing temperatures for three weeks. Let the expedition begin!

Episode 2 – In the Blink of a Walrus’ Eye. (32 minutes):

After leaving the dock, these sailors quickly learn that the conditions of the Arctic can change in the blink of a walrus’ eye. Speaking of Walrus, the crew finds a huddle of these gargantuan creatures and learns first hand about their gnarly smells and sounds. After a not so pleasant encounter with a cruise ship, SV Isbjorn makes her way over to a massive calving glacier. It’s beauty enchants the crew just long enough to put their boat in the danger of a tidal ice flow that they now must navigate out of!

Episode 3 – Holy Sh*t! That’s A Lot Of Ice! (31 minutes):

The crew attempts to navigate SV Isbjorn out of an ice flow that could easily sink her to the bottom of the anchorage, and somehow has fun doing so. Their survival is rewarded with a visit from a polar bear mother and her young cub, who discover a thawed out whale carcass. The day of insanity continues when Beluga whales appear on the horizon just long enough to launch the drones!

Episode 4 – Sailing to the End of the Ocean (32 minutes):

Beluga whales on the horizon! With drones launched and a hydrophone dropped in the water, the crew quickly realizes why these creatures are known as the canaries of the sea. After 3 weeks of 8 people living on a 48 ft. Boat, these sailors reflect back on the pros and cons of sharing a small space with each other. A major goal is completed when they sail SV Isbjorn all the way to 80° North, a place that the Vikings call “The End of the Ocean”. With one final adventure of a polar plunge next to a Glacier, the crew wraps up the trip by admitting they are now addicted to the Arctic.

This Is Why We Gave Up Everything and BOUGHT A BOAT! Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 394

We’ve got another feel good episode comin’ at ya this week! It pretty much ticks all the boxes of what we love in an episode…good sailing conditions, adventures with our family and amazing friends, margaritas, and of course some boat work to balance everything out.

In this episode we go on our first proper land mission. We hike from one side of the island we were anchored at to the other via a stunning valley that is full of cacti everywhere. Something about the desert just feels incredibly special and fascinating, it’s so different than our usual cruiser habitat of white sandy beaches and palm trees. It’s pretty wild when we think about all the different environments Delos has been in over the last year…The rainforests and mangroves of Panama, a fresh water lake 85 feet above sea level in the middle of the Panama Canal, the wild jungle of Costa Rica with howler monkeys echoing through the anchorages, an all inclusive beach resort marina in one of the busiest tourist spots in Mexico, and now here we were in this magic wonderland where the desert meets the sea standing under a cactus that’s as tall as a house. Moment’s like these make us realize how truly special our lifestyle is, and we are so incredibly grateful to all of you for coming along on the journey with us!

TROUBLE IN PARADISE 😳 Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 393

This week’s episode pretty much sums up boat life: Highs and lows in beautiful places, broken stuff, and unforgettable magic moments all mixed in between! We run into some tricky problems with the generator, which we depend on quite a bit these days for things like making water and running the AC for Sierra’s afternoon naps when temps hit about 100 degrees inside the boat. After a bit of trouble shooting I was pretty sure I knew what the problem was, but with no access to the replacement parts I had to get a little creative with the solution…I think a lot of you that enjoy the maintenance/repairs/technical stuff will find this one super interesting!

We also do our first night dive in YEARS on the Fang Ming which you saw us dive in last week’s episode with the frisky turtle. Night dives have always been a favorite of ours, but doing it on a wreck is an incredibly rare treat. Ship wrecks already have such a feeling of mystery and eeriness even during the day time, so when you add in the element of darkness and tunnel vision, it’s a seriously amazing experience.

Sailing our house to the DESERT…We Didn’t Expect THIS 🤯 Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 392

It feels like we just landed on MARS! After our 4 day passage from Puerto Vallarta, we finally make landfall in one of the most alien like environments we’ve ever encountered in 13 years of sailing around the world. It’s so wild that we can spend the last few months in lush jungles like Panama and Costa Rica, and now here we are arriving in our floating home into a full on desert. But what’s even more fascinating is that the vast and barren landscape above the surface is such a sharp contrast to what lies under the surface of the sea. We dive an incredible shipwreck called the Feng Ming, and have one of the strangest and most incredible encounters with a sea turtle that we still can’t really explain.  Join us in this week’s episode for a first taste of how WILD the Sea of Cortez truly is.

Terrifying Night At Sea 😱 300 MILLION VOLTS Striking All Around Us ⚡️ Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 391

It was like an EXPLOSION in the sky as we navigated our way through squalls closing in all around us. It feels pretty vulnerable to be out there in the middle of the ocean with a 70 foot giant metal pole reaching up towards the electric sky from the middle of your home 😱

It was our first night out since departing from Puerto Vallarta on our 4 day passage to the Sea of Cortez, and it was definitely one of the more nerve wracking one’s we’ve had in a LOOOONG time. But luckily the following days brought us some pretty magical experiences, and it felt so good to be out of the marina and headed up to a part of the world that we’ve heard so many incredible things about. And when we finally made landfall and laid eyes on the alien like landscape all around us, it made the long sleepless nights all worthwhile!

This NEVER Gets Easier 😢 Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 390

The time has come again for another one of those hard episodes. This one is incredibly bittersweet for us…There is so much love, laughter, and good vibes in this episode as we welcome friends, family, and of course our lovely Patrons down to Puerto Vallarta to celebrate the completion of Brian’s first circumnavigation. But it’s also full of tears and heartbreak as we experience that familiar feeling that every sailor knows so well…the sadness that comes with goodbyes. It’s inevitable in this lifestyle, but that doesn’t make it any easier.

In addition to saying farewell to family at the end of their visit, it’s also time for Jordan to head off on her next adventure after 4 months and 2,000 miles. We had one helluva ride together, and if you didn’t know already Jordan has been working with us behind the scenes for the last couple years, so don’t worry you will definitely be seeing more of her in the future 😁 If you’d like to follow her adventures, check her out on instagram at @jordan_copp

ALL ALONE In A Secret Cove 🤯 Off the Grid, Off the Charts…THIS IS LIVING! S.V. Delos Ep. 389

Finding these MIND BLOWING hidden corners of the world is why we live this lifestyle!

Life at sea certainly has its ebb and flow where it can seem really really tough, or so unbelievably charmed and magical. I wouldn’t use the words “good and bad” to describe these, because the challenges and struggles that living on boat presents is also what makes it so rewarding…but that being said, pretty much since leaving Panama, the pacific coast of Central America and Southern Mexico had felt pretty tough. While we had some AMAZING moments along the way, when we compare the last three months up the coast to three months in San Blas, it had an entirely different feeling to it. In this episode, we finally get a taste again of the charm and magic, and danggggg did it feel good!!! Even if it would be incredibly short lived as another tropical depression was riding right on our tail. So join us for our little three day escape from storm dodging and share in our pure bliss and happiness on this beautiful Friday 🥰

We’re SURROUNDED! Hurricanes On All Sides Of Us 😳 Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 388

Was sailing through hurricane season a bad call???  This is our second brush with a named hurricane in the last month, will we get lucky again?

We’ve found ourselves in a bit of a tricky spot. We’ve been northbound for the last couple months since transiting the Panama Canal trying to make our way up towards the northern part of the Sea of Cortez to try and escape the hurricane season in this part of the world. But now we’re smack dab in the middle of one of the most active and earliest Pacific storm seasons…so now we pretty much have no choice but to keep moving, choose our weather windows carefully, cross our fingers and hope for the best.

What Can Go Wrong, WILL GO WRONG 😳 Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 385

All Systems Are Down 😱 A slew of failures leaves us with no gps, no navigation, no autopilot, and no instruments…Delos goes dark!

Get ready for a doozie of an episode that pretty much sums up boat life…stuff breaking with moments of magic mixed in between! We left Chiapas with a less than exciting forecast. After weeks of nothing but headwinds on the tail of Hurricane Agatha, there was finally a light period that we would be able to motor into and make miles north towards the prime mexican cruising grounds on the other side of the Tehuantepecs. And as the days unfolded, it was one thing after the next as we dealt with a surprise visit at sea, one stir crazy toddler, current, wind and waves on the nose, and a whole slew of system failures that left us with no GPS, no autopilot, and no instruments.

PINNED DOWN by Hurricane Agatha 😱 Now What? Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 384

What happens when you mix an incoming hurricane, some rowdy sailors, a tattoo gun, and lots and lots of beers???

After arriving to Mexico after our 5 day passage, we were super stoked to dive right into everything this coast has to offer…but mother nature had other plans for us. What we hoped to have been a little 3 day stop over turned into 3 weeks as the strongest hurricane to ever hit the pacific coast of Mexico in the month of may rolled in to the north of us, and then blasted headwinds in the exact direction we wanted to go for the foreseeable forecast. But in true Delos fashion, we decided to drink a few beers and roll with it, leading to an airbnb pool party, some tattoos, lots and lots of beer, a trip to Guatemala, and of course boat projects galore.
