South Pacific Round II

Life Lately… A Rescue at Sea and Saying Goodbye 🥺 Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 426

We’re faced with a rather unexpected rescue at sea unlike anything we’ve done before, and we continue to explore the incomparable Marquesas Islands. It had been well over a month since we left Mexico, and the time had absolutely flown by. We knew that this moment would come, but we couldn’t believe it was already here…the time to say goodbye to one of our beloved crew members. After spending weeks at sea together, the bonds we formed on our Pacific Crossing were so intense. Our life as a little family of 5 had felt so natural and easy, and now that one of us has to go back to “real life” it feels like the end of a very special chapter on Delos. But the only constant in the life of a sailor is change, and we continue on to find one of our favorite anchorages yet in French Polynesia. We stumble across a little beach shack that we turn into a hair salon, and we take full advantage of the unlimited coconut supply.  Island life is pretttttty good 🥥 🏝️

One Of Us Got A Tattoo….AND FAINTED 😵‍💫 Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 425

The Delos crew is at it again in one of our most beautiful backdrops yet! After being cooped up for nearly three weeks at sea with only 53 feet of space for our legs to roam, we let loose on the beautiful island of Fatu Hiva in French Polynesia. Fatu Hiva is truly a dream, and we were completely blown away at every turn. We’re anchored in the Bay of Virgins, and one of the iconic features of this anchorage is a waterfront perfectly manicured soccer field. So of course we had to take to the grass and give our legs a proper workout. This would be just the first of our immersions into the local culture here, and we enjoy a beautiful local Polynesian dinner, and one of us even gets a tattoo with a HILARIOUS twist 😂 Now that Sierra is getting a bit older and becoming more and more perceptive, it feels so amazing to show her all the different ways that people live. Different languages, cultures, scenery, big cities, remote villages. This is one of the things we are most grateful about in our lifestyle is to be able to give Sierra such a broad range of experiences and to make her feel like there isn’t one set path in life. We hope you enjoy this video, and thank you so much for coming along on this beautiful voyage with us!

Can’t Describe This Feeling…LAND After 19 Days At Sea 🤯 Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 424

3,000 Nautical Miles of the mighty Pacific Ocean were behind us, and as the sun began to light up the horizon around us, there it was….LAND! Land sweet land, the sight and smell of land after having nothing around us but the vast blue ocean for 19 days and 14 hours is a moment that none of us will ever forget. It’s truly an indescribable feeling of pure joy, accomplishment, love for each other, gratitude, relief, and even a touch of sadness that it’s over. We make landfall in Fatu Hiva, an iconic and truly breathtaking anchorage of the Marquesas Islands in French Polynesia where we finally set foot on terra firma and begin to explore this exotic and beautiful part of the world!

Our BIGGEST CHALLENGE Yet After 13 Years At Sea (Pacific Crossing 8 of 8) S.V. Delos Ep. 423

After more than a decade of sailing around the world, we thought we’d pretty much seen it all. But becoming parents and raising a tiny captain at sea has both tested us and rewarded us in ways that we didn’t know were possible. This is our daughter Sierra, she’s 3 and a half years old and has lived at sea on our floating home since she was just four months old. 17 days ago we set off on our biggest undertaking yet as a family, sailing 3,000 nautical miles across the mighty Pacific Ocean from Mexico to French Polynesia. So for today’s episode, grab your sippee cup and your favorite stuffed animal and join us for a glimpse into what it’s really like to cross an ocean with a toddler!

Sea-crets REVEALED 😱 How Sailors Cross The Equator (Pacific Crossing 7 of 8) S.V. Delos Ep. 422

Join us for my 5th (and Kazza’s 4th) equator crossing on Delos as we induct our two lowly polliwogs Hannah and Sierra into our society of trusted shellbacks. In this video we explain the history and significance behind the time honored tradition of the line-crossing ceremony, and of course things get more than a little bit silly (think whipped cream, adult diapers, you know the typical essentials that every sailor has on board). After two weeks at sea with nothing around us but blue water, it was quite the treat to have something out of the ordinary to get really excited about. I think you will all agree that the Hannah’s costume (or maybe punishment is a better word to describe what she was wearing 😂) is truly a masterpiece that will go down in Delos history.

NOT What We Expected Out Here 😳 (Pacific Crossing Pt. 6 of 8) Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 421

THERE IS NO LEAVING SQUALL CITY 😳 Welcome to part 6 of our Pacific Crossing, get ready for some wet n’ wild action as we approach the equator. We arrive to the doldrums, or the Interpropical Convergence Zone. This is where the northeast and southeast trades converge, and its known for being mostly calm and windless…on my last Pacific Crossing we had to motor for a couple days straight to get through this part of the ocean, but this time we are FLYIN! It worked out great for our speed and fuel consumption, but man did things get sporty! Definitely not what you typically expect from this zone. But on the plus side, we got LOTS of free showers, and we manage to make the most out of it and are able to laugh at ourselves as we navigate our rolly state of existence. Plus we enjoy working our way through the massive pile of Wahoo that’s got our fridges and freezers bursting at the seams 🤤

INSANE Wahoo Catch! Best Deep Sea Fishing Of Our Lives! (Pacific Crossing 5 of 8) S.V. Delos Ep. 420

It’s WAHOO MADNESS on the high seas! We’re 10 days into our 3,000 nautical mile voyage across the Pacific Ocean, and King Neptune is about to bless us with our most exciting moment of the trip yet…After downing a lunch of freshly caught fish tacos from a skipjack we snagged that morning, the crew was getting lulled into a food coma/siesta mode with the rolling of the boat. But we sprang to life when we heard that unmistakeable sound…..FISH ON!!! We hook an absolute MONSTER that puts our fishing skills to the test. After prepping the fish and managing to fit the obscene amount of wahoo into our fridges and freezers, the only thing left to do is enjoy the fruits of our labor…a catch and cook fit for kings with some fat and juicy wahoo steaks!

Would You Climb A Sailboat Mast 1,000 NM from Land? (Pacific Crossing 4 of 8) SV Delos Ep. 419

Don’t watch this if you’re afraid of heights! We’re about a week into our 3,000 nautical mile journey across the world’s largest ocean, and the days, hours, and minutes are starting to blur together. We’ve fully entered into “passage mode” and embraced that sweet blend of relaxation, living in the present, and a little touch of insanity and silliness thrown in the mix for good measure. This leads us into some interesting and hilarious antics to fill the time, including a way sketchier than expected trip up the mast in rolly downwind conditions, the smelliest, gag-worthy squid snack, and lots more! Grab your favorite cold beverage, kick back, and join us on the open ocean for some epic days on the water with the Delos crew!

24 Hours UNFILTERED: Real Life On The Open Ocean (Pacific Crossing Pt. 3 of 8) S.V. Delos Ep. 418

Have you ever wondered what a day on passage ACTUALLY looks like aboard Delos? We wanted to share it all with you, from the epic moments like an intimate morning with nothing around for thousands of miles except you and some dolphins…all the way through to the simple things like doing the dishes. We tried to include minimal music and more ambient sounds, with some longer drawn out moments to try and create a real picture of what it looks, feels, and sounds like to be onboard Delos in the middle of the open ocean. So grab your morning coffee or your favorite frosty beverage, kick back, and prepare to be transported to our floating home for Day 5 of our 3,000 nautical mile passage across the Pacific Ocean.
