Working remotely while Sailing with Saltbreaker – Interview With a Cruiser – Sailing Vessel Delos

Questions with timestamps below guys 🙂 Two brothers decide to put normal working life aside and follow their dreams of sailing around the world! Sounds familiar?!?!?! They bought a Valiant 32, fixed her up, and paid for the trip by working as they go on random technical jobs using satellite internet. These guys are the real deal and some of the most interesting people we’ve met out sailing. Totally cool, young cruisers with the right mindset. Glad we got to hang out with you guys 🙂 XXOO The Delos Crew

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
