Rescuing an adrift catamaran from dismasting on a bridge and a boring monologue.

(#7 of 7) Rescuing an adrift catamaran from dismasting on a bridge! I couldn't believe when we got the call to go and rescue a friend of a friends boat that was adrift. To think what was about to happen sends a shiver down my spine. Anyone ever seen a bridge dismasting? Anyway, here's where I'm leaving La Vagabonde as I fly back to Australia to meet up with Elayna. Exciting times ahead. Stay tuned. Riley.

Riley, I think you are doing an amazing job:- sailing, educating us on blue water sailing, navigation, filming (what ever else).... and it's all really wonderful so an huge thanks. I have already proffered my congrats to you and Elayna on the recent birth of Lenny and so all the blessings to you both, again. What I did want to add was that I don't mind not getting a response with all you have to do - your patrons are first priority and I totally understand. I reckon your achievements are spectacular and thoroughly, thoughtful and inspiring. From someone who has spent a lot of time on boats. Pete

So glad to see your boat a mess! We chartered in the Bahamas in Dec and ended up on a Lagoon 39, our last day was a beam reach sail in 33 Kts Dbl reefed and stuff was falling all over the cabin and I thought to myself....I never see this happening on La Vaga, or Curiosity (Wynns). Good to see we aren't alone.

Just so you know I was a recording engineer here in Los Angekes for 12 years and I have recorded some of my own music. It's not that difficult to make good quality recordins, you'll need a good microphone of course and I prefer a DAT recorder and some kind of mixer. Hit me up for more tips and questions that you might have. Best to both of you. Love James.

As a parent, I remember (over a decade ago now) all of the very well-meaning statements of friends telling us about how much time I wouldn't have any longer. My advice is this, don't trust them too much. :) The thing is, every parent, every couple is different. The one universal truth I've found for myself and my partner (and all of our other parent friends) is this: If you're driven you'll find a way that works for you to make it all work out. Will you be exhausted? Sure. Are you already prepared from multiple ocean crossings to have at least one of you awake all night? Yup. You might actually find that your lives to this point have nicely prepared you for the challenges ahead. Funny how things work out like that. You'll be fine.

In a previous video i posted a more lengthy idea of parenting, but to summarize what i previously said before as it pertains to what you said at the end...Don't sweat it, everything you are planning will change. That is the only thing you need to know about parenting....Plan to not be able to plan haha. Each and every day will bring new challenges that you didn't think of before. You guys have good heads on your shoulders so do what you can, when you can. I'm sure all of us here will understand.

I just had a thought... and speaking as a parent (and grandparent) there is so much of the early days in a child's life that one of you inevitably miss - and otherwise worthwhile memories - even as just momentary occurrences and random events that you will want to recount to friends and fellow parents, that it might be an idea to routinely keep a lightweight go-pro type of camera on a headband at most times of the day.
Just an idea...

Re Time problem.... plan your second child asap, nothing takes more time than a lonely only child, having 2 especially close together means they play together and take less of your time, it's counter intuitive but true.

adss70 - 2 years ago
I thought that by now you two would have reached a level of transparency to disclose the real challenges that confront you. You know what I'm referring to.... Your story about the 38knots situation, or the rescue of another catamaran were not the most confronting challenges... it was actually the fact that you could not find where the cold weather clothes were stored at ;)
Jokes aside.. another great vlog. Also, congratulations to the both of you for the new (little) shipmate.

The first 3 months with a new bub is the easiest, as all they do is drink, sleep, and sh&t. Its after that all hell breaks loose. I hope Elayna is breast feeding as it makes it so easy to take bub on all sorts of adventures without having to worry about taking bottles and having to heat them up. Brest is best as its always on tap.

Mike Gray-Ehnert - 2 years ago
Riley it was my experience as a new Dad that while stuff takes a he'll of a lot more time, you adapt and cope. You'll be fine, you will sleep less at least not as long. As to music saw an ad on a music vid on you tube about a recording device that plug a into the audio output Jack on ele/ acoustic guitars. Not sure about vocals. Water and a boat and audio gear will be a tough mix. Good luck with that one!
hightechhippie - 2 years ago
Don't sweat the kid, my advice is - teach baby to swim asap, get a flotation devices for when he starts crewing and walking . they have no fear until they are like 3 so , jumping off the boat you got to watch out for. and other than that, just go for it, you got to decide if baby is in videos or not but , life does not have to change that much , your just adding a crew member . its just going to be so exciting for you too, and Us. peace!

I think two videos a week will be easy as long as the videos contain scenes about baby life on board. Diaper changes are one-man jobs leaving the other parent free to video. Have a happy, healthy baby and the rest of it will take care of itself. I'm sure you have gotten the hang of it by now.

Riles, you should just drop it down to one a week or one a fortnight. The first 6 months of being a new parent are incredibly draining n it's a time you really should be focusing more on your family and friends. I think everyone here would fully understand. I do get it would cut your income, but hopefully it's enough to give you guys the space and time to adjust to the new family situation. Love the vids, even though I'm a little harsh on safety sometimes lol. I'm sure you guys have talked about it, but there are a lot of nutters out there. So if it were me, I wouldn't be introducing your child to your audience until he or she can decide for themselves if they want that attention.

Big job ahead but don't think about it too much just yet. Save that for 10 years from now when you'll have done it all and will look back and wonder how. That being said. I can't think of a single way to abbreviate anything you do without losing something that makes it work. Possibly change the routine to include regular port time to recover with some help? Then you can do the editing and the baby can learn that the entire world isn't swaying.

It's kind of sad that Charleston harbor has that kind of trash in it :( The new life has begun! Revel in it!

New parents always make me laugh when the child falls over, first is the crying and screaming ( that's the parents ) and then the bubble wrap, knee pads and helmet. By the second child you're like "aww your ok, walk it off". By the third child you'll push him over, just so he can experience it for himself. Over time you learn kids bounce.

Riley in Uggs, omfg, I've seen everything.

Man, sailing in the Bahamas/Caribbean/across the can see the difference, once you head up north in the states, it's ugly. The water's brown, you have to bundle in clothing...and well...isn't that the whole purpose of sailing? Getting away from the dredges of humanity, wearing shorts and relaxing as you relish crystal blue waves that slice against the bow of your ship? Just vague ponderings - still have to finish the vid, but always love to see you guys are still alive and doing well!

I'm philosophically in favor of Patreon. I remember when it started. I was so happy. The arts were disappearing in schools here in the US, the government was cutting funding for the arts drastically, and many of us wondered how we could help. Through Patreon we can directly be a patron of the arts we care about. That said, they only support a subscription service, not one time payments, and for those like myself who are quite poor to the point of being food insecure, it just doesn't make sense to commit to a monthly payment of even $5 because many times there just won't be any money in the bank when the charge hits. I'm really glad you have the paypal option so that people like me can give as we wish when we can. A reminder from you on a video released quite near the beginning of the month is likely to be a treat. It would probably help if you put the paypal link in the section below your video like you do the Patreon. If you make it hard for people to paypal you some funds, the hurdle might dissuade some. It's the same on your website, you have a link on your sidebar to go to Patreon, but the link to paypal isn't identified as such, (although it is a pretty glassy curved button:) I did a tutorial on making web gradients years ago which taught making buttons like that: (

Actually, I think the situation that RIley is referring to is that some people don't want to support Patreon as a platform anymore due to some controversial decisions Patreon has made lately, but they would still like to support Riley and Elena in a similar way elsewhere. (AKA through Paypal) They're still happy and willing to support them monetarily - just not through Patreon!

Is Wild Oats XI really rocking an SLV sticker or is that photo shop? Great work on these episodes Riley really enjoyed all 7! Do you have any reading recommendations for meditation? Keep it up!

Yeah, that one caught me off guard too. But considering the picture before that is a horse with the sticker on it's forehead... ;)

You might have been surprised at how tough the rig on that Lagoon would have been. MANY years ago (54?) our family sailboat, a Columbia 24, was caught in no wind and the auxiliary engine wouldn't start - compounded by the hand starter cord then broke! Long story, made short - we wound up getting sucked into a bridge and the upper stays were rubbing against the bridge while the tide tried to push us under. We were heeled about 35-40 degrees and now completely stuck even if we could have started the engine - at that point the prop would have been out of the water! We were stuck there for about 30 min when a local deep sea sport fishing boat came by (turned out my Dad new the captain from our local marina!) got a line to us and was able to pull us out. Towed us to where we could drop anchor (the depth where this happened was about 60' and we had no where near enough anchor rode to hold in that depth!); my Dad was able to easily then get the engine started and we motored on home. Back to the point - after a VERY thorough inspection of the rig we only replaced the upper main shroud - and that mostly out of an abundance of caution! Sailboats are tough!! :)
