Baby on Board

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

24 HOURS in Our Life OFFSHORE – Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 270

What’s a day in our lives like offshore sailing? In this episode we show you our daily routine, including the dull and exciting things that happen in a single 24 hour period on a small sailboat at sea. We get a call from a boat next to us asking for help, we do a bunch of sail changes, and Brian decides to attempt to wash dirty baby diapers while Delos is rolling around in the swell.

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

Have you ever wondered what the steps are for getting a catamaran off a reef? In this episode Brian helps our neighbors @tgt_sailing after they run aground negotiating a tricky harbor entrance. We also dig into some boat projects and fire up the new solar panels, and I cook up some super delicious banana pancakes 😀

Hope you enjoy this episode of our day to day life living as a family on our boat. If you do be sure to LIKE THE VIDEO to let us know 🙂 Sending extra virtual HUGS to everyone that subscribes to our channel.

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!

Change is HARD! – Flexible Solar Panel Installation – Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 262

The FLEXIBLE SOLAR PANELS we installed can be found at https://sunpoweredyachts.com. Just use the code “SVDELOS” and get 10% off!

In this episode we discover the ups and downs of living on Delos with just the three of us. There are some things that are much harder, and other things that are easier…… After a heartfelt talk from Kazza about the videos and a special omelette breakfast surprise we decide to tackle a project of installing some more solar panels. In a previous episode we removed a solar panel to install our new Viasat Internet, so to replace the lost capacity we decided to work with https://sunpoweredyachts.com to install 780W of flexible solar panels on Delos. Just use the code “SVDELOS” and get 10% off!

FIRST SAIL beating into 30 knots!!! Do babies get seasick??? Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 261

Imagine that you live on a sailboat, work on a sailboat, and travel on a sailboat. Then you have a baby…. We were extremely nervous setting out on our first sail with The Nugget. How would she react? Would she like it or would it be a total disaster? Do we need to rethink our lifestyle and future plans? Well there’s only one way to find out! With clear skies and what they call “reinforced trades” blowing 25-30 knots we set out straight into it tacking and beating into the swells. It was one hell of a bumpy ride…..

Does anyone out there know if babies can get seasick? We heard not until they can walk because their inner ear balance has not developed, but if anyone has any insight on this we would love to know!

How to get SUPER FAST Internet on a sailboat – Digital Nomad Edition – Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 260

“Come on over to our sailboat we have SUPER fast Internet, even in the middle the ocean!!!” Is something I never thought I would say. But here we are in a brave new world with satellites zooming overhead beaming internet down from space. And now we’re literally catching these space beams with a very fancy, very shiny computer controlled gimbaled bit of hardware and using it to stay connected and work remotely. Both at sea and in the far corners of the globe! In this video we’ll show how we installed and configured the components and system to work on SV Delos 🙂

So how did this all come about? Well like most good ideas it involved a few beers…. At the Southampton boat show I met a very cool guy named Bill. It turns out Bill is a sailor and watches our videos. It also turns out that Bill leads a team at Viasat Maritime. After quite a few scheming sessions we figured out a system that could deliver high speed broadband internet to a sailboat the size of Delos. In fact Bills major concern was how would having this type of internet all the time affect life on board? Knowing we cherish our offline time at sea. My answer- well it does have an off switch right?!? 😜So we began a pilot project with Viasat to prove the concept, which will lead to affordable systems for sailors and those wanting to untether themselves work as true digital nomads wherever you find yourself.

Right now these systems are still in their trial phase, however If you’d like to learn more about the technology and what’s available you can visit maritime.viasat.com or contact them directly at [email protected] .

After installing the new internet super dome Brady and Alex begin their adventures off Delos in the snowy mountains of California for a season of Snowboarding!

Kazza and I are just so excited for you all to meet our Lil’ Nugget- Sierra Ebba Trautman, and share in our adventure as we try to figure out the sailing life with a baby on board!!! After 6 months in Sweden we’re back on Delos and just so excited for you to meet Sierra 🙂 She was born in Sweden and when she was 4 months old we decided it was time to head back to our floating home. So far It’s been an emotional roller coaster with many highs, a few lows, and more than our share of poop stories….
