With a severe tropical storm moving our way fast we decide to start our 575NM passage from the remote sandy beach island of St. Brandon to Pirate Bay in isle St. Marie, Madagascar! And what a passage, one of my favorites actually! Conditions where great, with a steady 25 knots behind the beam Delos was cruising along at 8kn. View More

A drone crash, a lost tooth and a live concert! Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 115

As Dillon is paddle boarding back to Delos one night there is a bit of a mishap and he knocks his tooth out! We do a night diving mission to try and find it… but to no avail. As you can imagine, he must’ve given his mouth a good whack if he ended up knocking his tooth out, which is definitely what happened. I remember squirming when it happened because I just had an awful idea about how painful it would be. Although, what I will say is that he was lucky that he only knocked out one tooth, as it could’ve been a lot worse.

I’m not sure what he’s going to do about his lost tooth. He hasn’t mentioned either way if he is just going to leave it as it is, or if he is going to see his dentist at the earliest convenience. If it was me, I would be straight to the dentist trying to get it sorted. In fact, I would even consider getting something like a smile makeover, as if you weren’t aware (like I wasn’t initially) that a smile makeover addresses majority of appearance issues, and if you had a lost tooth or other dental issues that you were conscious about, this would be a good way to achieve a smile that you are proud of. Of course, I will support Dillon either way though.

After his paddle boarding accident, I do have to say that I am a bit nervous about getting back on the board in case the same thing happens to me, but this is just a fear that I will have to get over. That wasn’t the end of our action-packed day though, as then, in a random connection, we end up going to see the epic GoodLuck Live Band at a local resort! After the concert we start sailing south and decide to give our new splash drone a shot…uh oh! View More

Sailing the Roaring 40s in 30 foot Waves! Sailing SV Delos Ep. 107

In this episode we sail through the roaring 40s and it was crazy! Definitely the most intense part of our 3000NM passage from South Africa to La Reunion. We had wind speeds of over 50kn, 23–32ft (7–10m) waves and in the middle of everything our autopilot breaks and it’s hand steering from now on! A bit of a tester as our new crew have not hand steered before. View More
