SAIL. DIVE. REPEAT. Welcome to the FUNGATTA! Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 201

What’s a FUNGATTA???? Well, it’s a triathlon of events including sailing, diving, partying, and general good times 🙂 When Rick from Sophisticated Lady mentions a regatta up north in Bequia, nestled in the turquoise waters of the Grenadines it sounds like too cool of a mission to pass up. We set sail and buddy boat north to find yet another incredible sailing paradise. The only problem- the race is called off for lack of wind. So what do sailors do when there is no wind? Well the first this that pops into our minds is drinking rum and scuba diving. And so the Delos Fungatta series is born! This is a feel good episode with lot’s of sailing, scuba diving, and general good vibes. Hope you enjoy! Edit by Leeesir and Capt. Breeyawn. Much love from The Delos Crew

Our 200th EPISODE! Brian got kidnapped… SV Delos Ep.200

Yep, that’s right… We’ve hit 200 episodes! It seems like just yesterday we were cruising through the South Pacific in 2010. Time has flown by and here we are 9 years later still trying to make as many memories as possible. Thanks to all of you for being along for the ride!

What else would you do for your Captains Birthday than kidnap him to make his day extra special!? How about bring in a bit of crew love with our new friends in Grenada and some chill time out in the Grenadine Islands. Land life always needs to be balanced out with some sailing and spending quality time in the water with Kazza’s favorite creature, turtles!

Hope you enjoy our 200TH EPISODE! Endless love for our tribe who has embarked on this journey with us and continues to cruise along 🙂 Love you all! ~BBBK

Gettin’ Deep into the Grenada Cruiser Scene – Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 198

Grenada is a black hole that will suck you in, or at least that’s what we’ve heard, and after spending a little time here we can see why! In this episode we have some incredible sailing, we say goodbye to Eric, Maureen, and Colin and life returns to normal on Delos. At least for a few hours…. Rick from Sophisticated Lady tells us of a dinghy cruiser concert, which sounds too cool to pass up so we move Delos over to Hog Island and get deep into the heart of the cruiser scene with one hell of a party!

One Helluva sail to Grenada! – Sailing Vessel Delos Ep.197

The sail from Trinidad to Grenada is supposed to be eazy-peazy right? Just a leisurely 80NM sail to another island. NOPE!!! It turns out to be one of the roughest overnight passages we’ve had this season with squalls gusting into the 40 knot range that knocked us around all night long with big seas and current against us. Not to mention we had two fresh greenhorns onboard, Eric and Maureen, who were our Patron Crew Contest winners for this leg. There’s no better way to break in a new sailor than with a good overnight passage in some hectic conditions 🙂

CARNIVAL in TRINIDAD! We be Limin’! Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 196

CARNIVAL, WHOA! From the mud drenched sunrise parties to the extravagant costumes and days full of limin’ & chippin’ – our few weeks spent on Trinidad were truly the experience of a lifetime!! It became even more interesting when we dug into the history of this legendary event which spans centuries, cultures, continents and religions. We hope we did a decent job at capturing the vibe and maybe even inspired some of YOU to check it out yourselves one day 😀  View More

Untouched TOBAGO! We made it to the CARIBBEAN! Episode 195

Did we seriously just sail into the Caribbean!? After almost 10 years sailing around the world, we’ve made it to the sailors playground. The Caribbean is a mecca for cruisers and we just arrived into Tobago, the southern jewel! We are welcomed onto this beautiful island with 75% rum, waterfalls in protected rainforests forests and some of the best scuba diving of our LIVES!

Fair Winds, peace, and love from Brian, Karin, Alex, and Brady.  View More

SLOW TV – Sailing Up the Maroni River, French Guiana – Sailing Vessel Delos

This is a bit of an experiment, and you are the guinea pigs he he 🙂

On a recent sail we were inspired by a TED talk on the concept of Slow TV. The idea is to capture an experience from a point of view over a long time span. In this case we were exploring the Maroni river in French Guiana. We hooked up a few Go Pro’s on Delos and let them run until the battery went dead. We also recorded the audio separately with our external microphone.

The video is 3 hours and 40 minutes long and meant as ambient background with audio. Maybe put it on the TV while you eat or a second monitor while you work. I dunno but hope you enjoy!

Love Brady, Alex, Brian, and Karin.

A SAILBOAT up a South American Jungle river? – Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 194

Why would you sail your home up a jungle river in French Guyana?   Well because it’s fun obviously! One of our favorite things is exploring off the beaten path in Delos, and taking our sailing home up a fresh water river is too cool to pass up. We get Delos way back off of a small tributary and anchor up for some dinghy exploring in Maggie. We notice that the animals are extremely skittish, and and find a patch of forest that’s been utterly destroyed by illegal logging.

We return to the town of Maroni to seek answers and try to figure out what’s going on. We tour a traditional village in Suriname, witness the local carnival, and finally end up a a wildlife sanctuary where we get some answers about what’s going on with the ultra-skittish monkeys. Then when our trip to French Guyana just couldn’t get any more random we get access to the European Spaceport and are able to film an Ariane V rocket launch! Incredible!!!

Fair Winds, peace, and love from Brian, Karin, Alex, and Brady.

Sailing into a NIGHT SQUALL!!!! Life in the ITC ZED- Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 193

NIGHT SQUALL!!!!! On day 9 of a 1,400 mile passage we get hit in the middle of the night by a massive squall! The wind is hitting a solid 45 knots and the rain is driven so hard it’s blinding us. We accidentally jibe, take a wave in the salon hatch, and it takes all hands on Deck to get Delos under control and properly reefed as we cruise down the waves making over 14 knots. That pretty much sums up life in the ITC ZED….

The next day we sight land and sail Delos into the jungle rivers of French Guyana. We’re struck by the quiet and calmness the jungle river provides us after so many days rocking and rolling on the ocean. Time to explore French Guyana!

Behind the scenes on Instagram @svdelos
Holy hell, Kiril did an incredible job editing this beast of an open ocean sailing episode. We say a sad goodbye to Brazil and set sail northwest….to…we don’t really know YET. Along the open ocean passage we visit remote reefs, LOSE OUR DRONE, celebrate a birthday and put BLUE through her equator crossing ceremony! View More

Exploring BRAZIL! Waterfalls, bikinis and beaches! Sailing Vessel Delos Ep.170

Bikinis and waterfalls in Brazil!! Yep we promised so here you go 🙂 He He! But before we head into the Brazilian jungle to seek out waterfalls…. Our new amigo Felipe drives us to the mainland to attempt checking in. It takes all day to navigate the Federal Police, Customs, and Navy offices but we finally are legally in Brazil with Delos! We get to experience our first Coxinhas and Brazilian street food which is frickin’ delicious. During our after passage clean Mr. Brady “solves” the mystery of the missing voice recorder. Nice try Mr. Brady but we were ahead of you every step of the way 🙂

Welcome to BRAZIL!!!! We Crossed the ATLANTIC!!!! Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 169

After 15 days and 2,240 miles at sea the crew spots the coast of BRAZIL!!! We’re a little shell shocked as we go from nothing but the deep blue to boats, houses, and the smells of the jungle coming off the island. Spirits are high and we decide to start taking shots to celebrate a successful passage, which of course turns into a crazy arrival dance party for the crew. The next day we wake up a little hung over and Brian cooks our arrival breaky of pancakes and bacon. View More

Hand Steering to the Southern Cross! Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 165

Our last morning at Ascension Island has us reminiscing about all of our incredible memories that were made in the middle of the ocean. But as we sail off the morning, our attention turns towards BRASIL and what this wild and unknown country has in store for us! With a swift sail off the mooring, we begin the last leg of our Atlantic Crossing- a 2,300 nautical mile sail to Ilhabela, just south of Rio. But I think Neptune wanted us to earn this one a bit more, and so our auto pilot malfunctioned at the last moment which meant we would have over 2 weeks straight of hand steering. But hand steering to Southern Cross didn’t end up being quite so bad 😉 We tried a bit of a different approach to the filming and editing of these four passage videos for you guys, so we hope you enjoy the themes you’ll find in each one! Mad Love from the CREW!
