ROUGH SEAS (4 Meter Waves 😳)….Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 466

Buckle up, we’ve got a spicy one for ya today! It’s finally time to depart our beloved Tuamotu Islands. Our haul out date was scheduled, our provisions were getting dismal, and we had soooo much to do to prepare Delos for being on the hard for 9 whole months. So we set off and pointed our bow west, and little did we know what was in store for us…the forecast for the wind looked fantastic, but there would be quite a bit of swell. Nothing that was worrying though, and certainly nothing compared to some of the extreme conditions we’ve encountered over the years. But it’s been a while since we’ve been out in seas like that, and we were in for a bit of a rude awakening. We got absolutely rocked out there. But even if it was pretty uncomfortable, we were FLYING along and we even caught a GIGANTIC mahi! So we’re going to call this one a win for sure! It’s good to get a little flogging out there every now and then to remind us we are true sailors 😂

CHANGE IS COMING…Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 465

Our lives are about to change completely, and it’s just starting to sink in…We’ve spent the last two months in some of the most remote and beautiful atolls on planet Earth, and now we are just days away from saying goodbye to all of it…we will be trading uninhabited islands, perfect white sand beaches, clear water, solitude, and pristine nature for a totally different life in Australia building our future dream boat. It’s beyond exciting, but at the same time we’ve been overcome with a bittersweet feeling…Balancing the gratitude for our time here which has been one of the most special chapters in our entire trip around the world, yet at the same time feeling into the corners of our hearts that will soon be left with little atoll shaped holes. But before we set sail and prepare to haul Delos out, we’re going to soak up every last drop of this unbelievable paradise.

Ocean Nomads: Our Family’s Sailing Story ⛵️ Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 464

The only constant in a sailor’s life is change…We had spent weeks at one of the most beautiful, wild, and remote atolls we’ve ever had the pleasure of dropping our anchor. And as is always the case with our nomadic lifestyle, the time eventually comes to move on. Every once in a while a place can really capture our hearts, and when that happens its tough to say goodbye. But luckily, with the breathtaking atoll of Fakarava on the horizon, it didn’t take long for us to get excited about our next destination. We enjoyed some of the most beautiful sailing conditions we’ve had in ages, and just like that our family and home was all set up in our next paradise, which just so happens to be one of the most famous and sought after dive destinations on planet Earth.

2 Months OFF GRID…WE CRACKED THE CODE! Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 463

It’s day 62, and there’s still no sign of civilization. 2 months had flown by for us out here in the Tuamotu Islands of French Polynesia, and we haven’t seen a single grocery store, a restaurant, or even a road…We love going off grid for SUCH a long time, and the deeper into we get, the happier we find ourselves. One of the coolest things about this lifestyle out here is that we are so rich in the currency of time. In our past lives, we traded our time to sit in the office and earn money to buy the things that we wanted, like a seafood dinner at a beachfront restaurant for example. Out here in the middle of nowhere, we don’t have access to conveniences like that, but we do have the time to hunt our own crabs, set up a fire on the beach, weave our own serving plates, and spend all day preparing an incredible feast with our friends and family in one of the most beautiful beaches on earth. These are the days we will look back on and think, dang, we really cracked the code on this whole livin’ thing. And the next day, we got to wake up and do it all over again.

17,520 Days Led Me HERE 🤯 Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 462

It’s kinda crazy when you think about how many decisions, experiences, and twists in the road lead us to our current realities. I can’t really explain exactly how we ended up here….but all I can say is that I’m pretty dang happy and grateful that we did. It’s my birthday, and we’re here in the incomparable Tahanea Atoll of the Tuamotu Islands in French Polynesia. If I could go back in time and show this video to a younger version of myself and explain that this is my future…I’m not sure if I would have believed what I was seeing! They say you shouldn’t speak your birthday wishes out loud, but I can tell you that it looks a lot like this…

Life On An Island You’ve Never Heard Of… Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 461

There are more than 900,000 known islands in the world. You can probably name plenty of them…Tahiti, Bali, Maui…these iconic islands are a household name for most people. But there are still a handful of places on Earth that few people will ever hear of, let alone set foot on. And today we’re about to sail to one of them!

The time had finally come to say goodbye to Raroia…At this point we already had our haul out date set in the Society Islands, and we still had a lot of miles and amazing destinations to cover along the way, so as much as we would have loved to stay here, sailors gotta sail. And honestly, when your next destination is Tahanea…well you really can’t complain! We have one of our most beautiful sails in a long time, and we can’t believe our eyes when we enter into the atoll and we can see the bottom in a depth of 20 meters/60 feet. We are greeted by the local welcoming committee, and we quickly dive into everything this insane paradise has to offer, and show you what life is like for us out here.

This video has a really cozy, homey feel to it with lots of smiles, love, and Sierra adorableness that will just melt your heart 🥹 We hope you enjoy this one, and we’re sending you lots of sunshine, love, and good vibes!

This INSANE Island Beats Them ALL!!! Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 459

After more than 80,000 miles sailed, 56 countries visited, an entire circumnavigation of planet earth, and dropping our anchor at countless islands, atolls, and indescribable paradises…this insane island beats them all. We’re here in the Tuamotu Islands of French Polynesia, and we are really and truly in the middle of nowhere out here. About 3,000 miles of open ocean lies between us and Mexico to the north east, and another 3,000 or so in the other direction to New Zealand. We felt like the luckiest family in the world to be able to call this place home for a while, but unbelievably, on this morning, these islands revealed another side of themselves that we can’t even put into words…

Just Say YES! Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 458

If there’s one skill that has completely changed our lives, it’s learning to say YES! Say yes to adventure, to the unknown, to challenges, to your fears…And in this week’s episode, we say yes to it all! After a loooong cyclone season spent in the Marquesas Islands, and after a 3 days at sea, we are now at the doorstep of one of our most beloved anchorages of all time, Raroia in the Tuamotu Islands of French Polynesia. Inside this beautiful and remote atoll lies everything we crave…crystal clear water, stunning 360 degrees views of paradise, endless beaches to explore, and an underwater world waiting to be discovered. But before we could enjoy any of it, we would have to navigate through a minefield of bommies and a narrow pass in low visibility.

Our Sail Just Got 10 TIMES Longer 😳 Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 457

It’s crazy how fast plans can change on the open ocean 🤯 The only constant in a sailor’s life is change, and today we found this to be as true as ever. After spending months in the safety of the Marquesas Islands of French Polynesia waiting for the cyclone season to pass, we were finally ready to get on the move again. Our plan was to make one last stop in Fatu Hiva which was only about 40 miles away. But once we got out underway, our plans quickly changed from a 40 mile day sail to a 400 mile open ocean crossing!

Would You Sail Away? (Hit By Our Neighbor 😳) Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 455

Well, there’s a first time for everything! After well over a decade of sailing around the world and dropping our hook in all kinds of different places, we found ourselves in a rather unique position that we never expected to deal with. It takes a lot to get me riled up, but this did the trick. But luckily one of the best parts about sailing is that you get to choose your own backyard, so when the neighbors are rubbing you the wrong way, just pack up and head off to the next one!

We Make MISTAKES…THIS Isn’t One Of Them. Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 454

We’ve made all kinds of blunders over the years…Plenty of moments spring to mind from sailing at full speed right into a reef, running aground more times than we can even keep track of, and so many others…some comical, some truly stupid, some a bit scary…but a few months ago when we decided to make that awful upwind sail from The Tuamotus back to the Marquesas Islands to avoid cyclone season, we’re happy to report now that all of our suffering turned out to be worth it, as two big swirling red balls were now filling up our screen when we checked the weather forecast. It had been a longggg few months here too, and honestly it has been one of the tougher times we’ve had on Delos in a while. The Marquesas Islands are such a special place in so many ways, but for the kind of cruising we enjoy and with the needs that we have with Sierra, well lets just say this was not our ideal living situation to say the least. But knowing that we made the right call to keep our family and our home safe made the months of rolling and struggling totally worth it.

LOST TOOTH 🦷 (A Very Rough Sail)…Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 453

We get absolutely ROCKED out there 😳 We just arrived back to French Polynesia, and we were ready to make some moves to a more protected anchorage…but the forecast was not in favor. And after days of waiting around, we decided to brave the ROUGH conditions and trade one day of suffering in exchange for a peaceful anchorage and a good night’s sleep. We bashed straight into massive waves, strong headwinds, and current for hours…and all three of us were on the struggle bus. It was every bit as gnarly as we had expected, and was definitely one of our more miserable sails we’ve had in recent memory. But once we made it to our spiffy new backyard it was totally worth it! And that’s when things start to get realllllllly interesting…I really can’t even describe to you our DIY dental saga…this one you’re just going to have to see for yourselves!

Can We Build A Boat with ZERO Experience??? Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 452

We Made A LIFE CHANGING DECISION! It’s part 2 of our trip to Australia as our quest for Delos 2.0 continues. We are so excited about this boat design…but what would that actually mean for us? Would we build it ourselves from scratch? Would we do it in Sweden? Or hire a team to start building the hull here in Australia? Can we actually pull this off? Can we afford this? We had soooo many considerations running through our minds…

But in the meantime, our crash course in welding and working with aluminum continues, and we weld up a whole frame! It was a super satisfying feeling and a taste of what’s to come for us. Stepping outside of our comfort zones, challenging ourselves to learn something new, and then seeing the fruits of those efforts come to life feels SO GOOD, and we’re looking forward to this aspect of the build…sailing on Delos, while it’s full of plenty of challenges and curveballs of its own, has become second nature to us after all these years, and that’s one of the things that excites us most about this…the learning that will take place, and the sheer challenge of it. And of course, in this episode we make the decision that will completely alter the course of our lives in the most unexpected but incredible way!

Our NEW Dream Boat?!?…Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 451

Ohhhh man, we CANNOT WAIT for you to watch this episode 🥳 It’s been quite some time since we’ve been this giddy to share a video with you! This one has been more than 6 years in the making…We first began exploring the possibility of a new boat in earnest in 2016, and over the course of those years we have been dreaming, researching, plotting and planning, and finally we have found a design that truly excites us. So we make an impromptu trip to Australia to meet the man behind the madness, and check out hull #1 which is currently under construction and see for ourselves what MIGHT be our future project and DREAM BOAT!

Brutally Honest: What’s Wrong With Delos 😳 Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 450

The Quest For Delos 2.0 Starts HERE! We’ve circumnavigated the entire planet on our trusty boat Delos, a 53 foot Amel Super Maramu 2000. With nearly 15 years aboard and 80,000+ nautical miles under our belt, we can say that we really know this boat inside and out- the good, the bad, the ugly, and everything in between! And while we couldn’t have asked for a better vessel for this voyage, we would be lying if we said we wouldn’t change a single thing. So in this week’s video we want to take all our knowledge & experience over the years about what has worked really well and what hasn’t, and share with you what we ABSOLUTELY LOVE and want to carry on into our next boat….and also what’s been driving us CRAZY over the years and what we will definitely be avoiding in our new boat!

Family Adventure of a Lifetime 🤯 Native in Nuku Hiva…Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 449

Sailing around the world takes you to some pretty incredible places…we get to witness some of the planet’s most spectacular natural beauty, explore corners of the earth that few people are lucky enough to set foot on, hike up mountains, dive down in the ocean, and enjoy a sense of freedom that isn’t found in a lot of lifestyles. But probably the most rewarding part of it all is the human connections we make, and the different cultures we get to share this one of a kind planet with. And in today’s episode, we take this to a whole other level. We find ourselves in the Marquesas Islands of French Polynesia, some of the most geographically isolated islands on Earth, lying more than 3,000 miles away from the nearest continental landmass. This isolation has allowed these islands to develop in a truly special way, and the culture here is one of the most unique we’ve ever encountered. We were lucky enough to land in this paradise during the Matavaa Festival, which only happens once every 4 years…and it was an experience we will never forget. Join us in this week’s episode as we dive into the fascinating history of these mysterious islands, and discover a way of life that was nearly lost.

Strangest Beach Find EVER 💀 Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 448

They called an archaeologist after we discovered this 😱 Not a sentence we use in every day life, and case in point of why we love the sailing lifestyle so much…when you wake up every morning, you know that anything could happen! Whether it’s a cheeky unexpected swim with a dozen manta rays, a very sporty coastal sail, exploring a totally wild and isolated island, or finding unidentified human remains…there’s always an adventure waiting around the corner for us. This will definitely be one of the videos we show to Sierra if she ever tries to call us boring in our older age 😂 We will kindly remind her of the time we hiked to a beach in French Polynesia where we found unidentified human remains. We’ve seen skulls and other skeletons in a few other places like Solomon Islands, Vanuatu, and Madagascar…but those were all known “attractions” (feels weird calling human remains an attraction, but can’t think of the word describe the fact that we went there specifically to see them). This one we actually just spotted it while walking around, and we have no idea of any of the history behind it. So join us in this weeks episode as we try and uncover our very own island mystery!
