Hey Rod.

Its been really good not being mauled by gigantic pelagic fish as much but I still live in constant fear and am dragged behind their boat for days on end. It gets cold. It gets really cold at night time. Whenever the sun is setting I get this horrible dread that I will be attacked from the depths by some gigantic creature. Sometimes Riley jumps in the water next to me and drags himself along beside me and I'm thinking "Why the f*&k would you do that.?" I don't know if he thinks he is keeping me company or if he wouldn't expect someone onboard to do something he wouldn't but to be honest it kinda freaks me out a bit.
I suffer from anxiety, but I'm seeing someone about that, the winch handle. Shes an elderly professional and has been giving me such compassionate and profound advice about my role in the universe that I have decided not to untie the Improved Clinch knot above my head but I'm still having the recurring dream where I'm left in the sun for days on end and go all crackly.
I'm covered in scars now and I'm getting on a bit in lure years but at least I've met a nice little skirt to keep me company in the tackle box. Its a hard life but I'm ok.

In the Caribbean, stock up on beer and wine in the French islands. In the Bahamas, stock up on everything that you can except rum. Everything is at least twice as expensive as anywhere else. We are on a Beneteau Cyclades 50. We anchor 99% of the time, mooring 0.9% if the time and marinas 0.1% of the time. We eat on the boat 95% of the time. A lot of walking when reasonable. We save for van trips on islands such as Dominica where rental cars cost about $80/day and you have to pay $20 for a temporary drivers' license, and rent cars in the French islands (much cheaper). If anyone wants to see a family of 4 with 2 teenages do it, go to S/V Yarika Sailing and check out our videos. Cheers.

Just read through some of the comments below. Great video and in my experience, valid points and quite true to life. So many people limit themselves to a line in the sand where their comfort disappears and their fears begin. It is certainly not for everyone but the cruising lifestyle is possible if you have zero dollars or a million dollars. My daughter recently returned to Canada after cruising the east coast of America and the Bahama's for a year. She spent less than one months typical salary on the entire trip and around 6K on the boat. Had a great time and came home with a lifetime of adventures under her belt....still in her early twenties. Underway she met others with boats they salvaged for free who followed the same path she did. It is all attitude folks.
We bought a series of boats and fixed them up and sold them. Our sweat equity after 15 years has us in an ocean capable 32 footer bought and paid for on a limited budget. Whether in a million dollar catamaran or a free salvage boat, we all wake up under the same sky. Make a plan, push through your fears and have that adventure before they pat you on the face with a spade... Love to Riley and Elayna from your friends in Canada. See you out there some day.

Hope the vids get longer with longer clips of the cultures encountered and hope the clips capture the joy and hardships, to give us dreamers a bit of the hardship realities before selling the house and the joys to make us sell. Thank you guys so much, glad we are able to get a glimpse into a world we have only been able to dream about! Y'all rock!

You're both such magical people! I hope we run into you out there someday.

What a well done and perfect video! Would add a nice big net (for fish,and also removing creatures which somehow end up in all boats on trips ;) along with a nice gaff hook...But! and it's a big one! When you hit safety equipment, I agree some take too much, including the people I knew who had 2 full size life rafts and 14..yes count 'em 14 radios on a 34' they were just island hopping on! But you're never gonna convince me to travel w/out my coconut helmet and Intercontinental Ballistic Missile, you guys of all people should know how terrifying and aggressive some of the crabs out there are!

spiritualinsight - 6 years ago
Curious is it possible to take this advice, with someone that's vegetarian. In May I have up eating meat, so sailing I feel like would be a bit harder. Was allergic to Shellfish, and counting out all the other meats including fish means fishing or living off the seas bounty as it were seems a bit harder. Am I wrong. Is it still do able?
Dominik Bergthaler
Dominik Bergthaler - 6 years ago
Concerning Alfred: I'd love to see a video about your fishing experiences and equipment - you inspired me to buy some stuff myself and I tried it out this summer, sailing greece - not a single bite tough. I saw alfred and thought, ok maybe its the lure, but I guess you guys must have more tips and cheats for trolling - if you wanna do a video about that I shall send you an email with all my questions or make a video asking them - whatever you prefer :)

The idea of crewing is great! Especially for your younger viewers who won't have the $$$ saved to buy a boat outright, AND it gives them the experience if they want to go and buy a boat in a few years time. Also, hello to Alfred! He makes a fine addition to the SLV vids x

These are great tips! I wouldn't have thought about crewing - seems like an awesome way to get a feel for things before investing in your own rig.

It's amazing to me that so many people are upset by the "anyone can do it" message of this vid. The fact of the matter is anyone can! First you must really WANT it and have no doubt. Second you set a goal and make a plan and put one foot in front of the other. Third don't expect instant gratification! Stop spending money on stupid stuff, pare down your living to basics, put the money away and don't sell the house! Rent the house for income once you are living on the boat. Anyone can do it and only you can put road blocks up to prevent it. No excuses!

Hello I'm a long term subscriber. I am from USA, and I have 2 houses paid off that I can rent, to bring me in close to 1700 USD per month. I also have 120k USD set aside to buy a boat. I am IYT skipper licensed (did all the training). Do you think its possible if I buy the boat in cash that 1700 USD / month could keep me afloat ? I'm 35 and single incase any single ladies out there HAHAHA. Nah but seriously I'm pretty frugal, I love mono-hulls and need to find a good strong blue-water for under 120k, ideally around 40 to 50ft.

From my wee bit o experience I think a lot of people are afraid of improperly navigation. Id suggest a short course as there are many and once you immerse oneself into the community more often than not you will likely be surprised at how many sailors will take you out for free with FREE navigation training. Just be yourself and don't be shy about being a bit ignorant of the topic. I'd wager how surprised you will be at the speed in which you find yourself helping another. Helping to teach folks how to do things actually gives ya a better or maybe deeper, more thorough understanding of navigation. It may seem intimidating at first until you realize how intoxicating these little lessons can be. There are schools out there but I say these two gorgeous human beings are perfect examples of learning as you go without some degree in sailing. Happy Wakes and trails!

This is stupid but I have two music recommendations for you. The first is someone who tells great stories with pretty easy guitar parts and he goes by "Radical Face" You have 10+ years of music there that is amazing and I hope you enjoy it. The other is "The tallest man on Earth" who may be one of the best Acoustic guitar players on the planet, his voice isn't for everyone but you could do some amazing covers if you could figure out his Tuning .

Thumbnails of Elayna's butt make my day.... That Riley is a lucky guy. Well he's a hottie too, so she's a lucky gal!
Soulrider2012 - 6 years ago
All this about a clickbait thumbnail pic. When you think about it, EVERY thumbnail is designed to do the same thing, create interest in the video, get people to watch. However, thumbnails REALLY bother me when they are not FROM the video. I guess that's when they fall under the label of "Clickbait". Sadly, that was the case with this thumbnail, it wasn't IN the video anywhere. To me that's a bit deceptive (even if it is just a shot of someone's amazing posterior). :) You think of the thumbnail pic as a sort of "preview" of some part of the video. That was not the case here. Unfortunately. :) However, regardless of how nice the thumbnail was, to me it was irrelevant as I watch every episode of SLV anyway. So, whether the thumbnail is of one of Elayna's incredible features (notice I didn't say best..but good lord knows it's up there on the list...) or not, I'll be watching the video anyway.

One thing not mentioned though, and something many people are unaware of: Many of us don't have the travel freedom afforded by better passports. Being from Aus, USA, Nz or UK for example will allow you to go just about anywhere in the world without the need to apply for a visa, a crippling barrier to adventure. Assumption is a killer, don't think everyone or anyone can just kick off and go on a fantastic trip like you guys, you are in fact exceptionally fortunate.

As expected, you've all missed the point of the criticism regarding the clickbait. I for one love Elayna's bum, she looks incredible. BUT, if you include that in the thumbnail it should also be in the video otherwise it is just clickbait and misleading. Don't become like the likes of Jake Paul and all those other 'vloggers' who have to clickbait for views because their content isn't interesting enough like yours la vaga. If you include her bum in the thumbnail, give us a bit in the video too ☺️.

I love the taste of fish but I don't like killing....  I'll disregard #8
Paul van Bellen
Paul van Bellen - 6 years ago
If there are alternatives to killing (and we both know there are hundreds) then I'll avoid killing. I find that actively making a decision to avoid killing lifts my mind to a more loving place, therefore leading to a more peaceful existence.

Wild animals are bound by their instincts & have limits to their ability to reduce the suffering of other beings. As humans we have the ability to make a choice... we can live perfectly healthy while at the same time reduce killing to a minimum and therefore reduce an animals stress (like being hooked on a line in the mouth).

When I was a child I was fishing on a wharf and when I went to cast my line, a dog behind me grabbed the bait and swallowed the hook. It started jumping around and yelping... a disturbing thing to see as a 10 year old! A random guy that was around the wharf cut the line and rushed the dog off to the vet. I'm not sure what happened to the dog. When telling that story to people they often feel so sorry for the dog. Since then I've often wondered what the difference was between catching that dog or a fish. Both animals don't want to be hooked. They both will suffer.

I'm happy with my decision to stop fishing.... sure other fish might eat them, that's the way of nature....but as a human who wants to lesson suffering in the World I'll continue down this path because it makes me feel better.

Thanks for the discussion mate ;)
Valden23 - 6 years ago
Hi Paul. Keep in mind that virtually every fish in the ocean eventually gets eaten alive, apart from the ones that Riley or other people catch. As much as your humanity is laudable, which it is, all those fish are not lining up to thank you. Nonetheless, I'm sure your humanity manifests in many other ways; caring for sentient animals, children and the elderly. :-)
Paul van Bellen
Paul van Bellen - 6 years ago
I'm not hungry enough because there are many alternatives to killing, like provisioning at a supermarket or local market. If I was marooned on a deserted island then yes I would hunt. But if I have alternatives to killing then I'll do that to lesson other being's suffering.
Valden23 - 6 years ago
That's because you're not hungry enough Paul. :-) Have you seen Bear Grills' videos about dropping groups of city-slickers onto tropical islands, for weeks, with no food? They very quickly learn how to hunt and fish! :-) Seeing those women catch a sleeping pig with their bare hands, then kill it with little more than a sharpened spoon made me realise I'd never been that hungry either.

Renegade Show - 6 years ago
When you buy a boat, consider what the boat is made of, not all hulls are the same, some are solid fiberglass, others are chopstrand, some have a balsa or foam core.

Some boats are made to cross oceans, others are made to sail on lakes.

Also consider the hull design, some boats are designed to race, some to cross oceans, they have very different properties.
David Macomber
David Macomber - 6 years ago

paanikki - 6 years ago
These are mostly excellent tips.

About crewing:
To have realistic chances for crewing overseas, you should have at least some skills in sailing, and experience from different conditions and more than one type of boat.

Having some kind of training in sailing skills (coastal navigation, marine radio communication, survival, first aid etc.) dramatically increases your chances for a crew position. Having documents of formal training in these areas is even better. (a skipper licence from your national maritime authority, or the International Pleasure Craft Operator's Certificate of Competency, SRC marine radio licence etc.)
Your "crew chances" can be increased further if you have training or skills in some special areas like fixing diesel engines, electrical systems, computing/data networking, plumbing, cooking/food hygiene (provisioning), or if you have language skills that are useful in the cruising area.

About being paid for sailing:
In most cases the crew pays their part of the food and fuel costs. Some yacht owners may pay the crew's food and other expenses for the duration of the trip, sometimes even flights.
To actually earn money by working as a crew is possible mostly on yachts which are registered for charter (or other commercial use). To be able to work as a crew in such yacht, one must have a formal training and STCW Basic Safety Training Certificate.

chatsworth Australians? Do they speak English? In reality while many fine the way Australians go up in pitch at the end of sentences or words annoying most english speakers, they also seem to love some Australian accents. Case in point Gabrielle Miller . "Who's that Bart?" I hear you ask. anyone who has seen a advert will instantly recognise her. And yes the voice in English is her's! I don't know what it is, but her voice has it in spades!

Je ne parle pas bien français. In the 60s, american music became VERY popular in Europe. At the same time, British rock spread all over Europe. The kids grew up listening to rock & roll,,, in English.
It is too much trouble to learn French, German, Spanish and Portuguese. Since the kids already had exposure to English, they more-or-less adopted as the lingua franca. All pilots must learn English.
The Australians are so far from Western counties that they rarely learn another Western language.

Hey guys, thanks for that great motivational vid! Got my first sailboat quite recently after doing a bit of crewing and an Atlantic passage last year. Got a small 24' Puma (1975 POS!!) and struggling with finding cheap place to dock in the Med and boat repairs, man it's hard but oh so worth it! As you said Elayna, escape the rat race!

All the talk of Elay in the comments. I do wonder what Riley's plan was before he met her. It appears she is the driving force behind the YouTube and social media. You two together are great. If you hadn't started YouTube would this have been a much shorter and direct trip?

Hi Elena and Riley. 

I´m a huge and longtime fan of yours and I´d like to chip in for once.
It´s a mere suggestion to make your upcoming episodes, even more great!
My passion is storytelling as a cinematic experience. Yours is to sail the world and to document a living while doing it. Cool!
I´m a retired filmmaker, so make sure you read my comment, with a pair of 1970´s sunglasses and some 80´s hip hop!

Not so much your videos in general, but in this episode specifically, it´s like it could have been even more.
Watching it felt a bit like a “mile-stone video” for you guys and for the journey that is SLV, but it was´nt lit!

My suggestion to the video, is simply to add detailed information from the blog post, into the video.
Merge them together, maybe not 50/50, but at least 20/80. 
There is a history and accumulated knowledge in the footage and the episode was fairly well edited. Each of these hilarious cut-aways are priceless and the fun spans years of a visual storyline. 
But if you suddenly want to do an epic video on a story, combined with your own blogpost, make your videos accordingly. There is a huge “story” and visual potential!
Adding graphics, texts, drawings, edit techniques or something. 

Talk bubbles
A “when or where” graphic. 
A quick peak, funny, informative and visual lower third.
The year - The country or sea - The particular situation - Names or info on the people in the shot- The wind and weather
Text with the actual websites you promotes. 
Maps visualizing the particular journey.

Adding info to each clip, enhancing it with folklore and flavour, for a more dense experience as a viewer, is a must!

Anyway, my point is, some people say; it is not supposed to be art, it is supposed to be finished.
Sure, in some cases, but I´d rather say; Wait… Wait, just a bit and get the final details and silver linings to connect…
Or you could solve it, by sending the final edit of an episode to @Qosikim and he will deliver the graphics! ;-)

Happy sails and thanks for your effort and awesome videoes!

Tips on working from the boat in the Mediterranean,
If you are from a EU-country, (ab)use the new roaming rules and get a extra large data package on your current subscription.
You could also get a 4G wifi router and buy prepaid data cards. Italy and Croatia has worked pretty well for me but not Greece.

Croatia: "VIP" about 10€ for 20 gig data/week
Italy: Vodaphone "Total giga" 45€ for 60gig / month (shared on 30 day/ 30 night 24:00-07:00)

Both these have speeds that makes it possible to even watch netflix from the boat if you want.
In Greece I tried Tazamobile and it didn't work very well, made have to change the route and go earlier to Italy

Go overboard with a spare (or 2) autopilot/s and/or windvang because when the going gets really tough, the electric autopilots always go out! Surgical tubing is like gold if you know how to use it (we did in the hurricanes with a tiller and line on the other side). You can also steer with your jib sheet if you learn how to do that (tiller also but hey, perhaps there is a way to wheel?)... Ahhhh, the joys of problem solving on the sea!

More overboard must haves: Fully charged handheld VHF radios always on you when topside sailing (until the lines are tied up) and a fanny pack with the good life saving stuff when outside at night or in any good wind (day or night). We had a whale hit our keel on a calm sunny afternoon and could have just as easily ended up in the water instantly. A handheld really helps because you can see and direct the boat but they can not see you even in daylight quite often and with only a 1 foot chop. But hey, you only live once.

BTW, were you both getting over a long party night? Your eyes tell the happy story :-)
Valden23 - 6 years ago
Thanks for this suggestion Top - re using a handheld radio to guide the boat to you, as the MOB. Better have it in a good zip-lock.

Good Info and Great Advice y'all, So many funny moments happened over the past years, Riley's Dad saying "If it's not the Spinnaker, it's the Bloody Autopilot!" Also when you were low in food and getting pretty Hungry and That Beautiful Dorado/Mahi-mahi Flopped itself back and you lost your Catch... Sad moment but also Funny watching the unexpectedly Floppy Fish Escape! Also, hearing those young Sailors telling you about their first time sailing off to see the World and having Second thoughts when it started getting Choppy and Calling Home and their Family telling them... No Keep Going we are Behind your Dream!!! "Like they wanted their Nest to stay Empty and not have them Return Home.... So Funny!!! Great Videos... All of them... Never Sell any Rights to your Videos when they come to ask you... The Ethereum Blockchain will be able to store them forever and charge folks to watch or use them in a News Clip for Example and Pay you Instantly when they do. Ask Vitalik Buterin. He is the Chief Scientist at Ethereum and can explain it all to you! Y'all gonna do very well!

Michael Brashier
Michael Brashier - 6 years ago
Came for the bumm. Stayed for the education. But seriously the one thing above all that puts me off sailing like this is the heat. I know I'd probably get climatized to it but I'd want a boat where I could run A/C underway or at anchorage on those really hot tropical days and not have to think about wasting the boats resources. That single indulgence probably puts me in the $1M+ 60-70ft class of luxury yachts.
minermarcus - 6 years ago
Michael Brashier nope not at all. It does mean you have to seriously work out your electrical systems and charging. Learn a bit about refrigeration systems and how they work cuz you will be fixing the AC. But a smaller boat 40' needs less cooling than a 70' boat.
And you might find that you acclimatize better than you think you would.

You two are simply the best! I own a video production company. I am married to one of the best video editors anywhere and we employ a couple of others. Your videos just keep getting better in terms of story telling, your pacing, your shot selection, you audio levels are even perfect. Thank god you do not use too many boring music montages.
Remember above all you two are the story, the locations are awesome but hundreds of thousands of people watch because of YOU. We care about how you get along, we like to see you kiss and smile. We want to know how you prepare that tuna you just caught. We want to know how much things cost, and how you keep comfortable on your awesome new home..all those details might seem minor to you, but the little details are what make for a great story. Your relationship is the star of the show..and we always want more!

David McNiven

Useful to know something about onboard electronics now that we rely on them so much and they're so expensive.

Revising Ohm's law and studying a basic electronics primer is a good start.
Learn electrical safety, mains power, radio & radar's dangers - and ESD protection before you actually touch anything. Even 12 Volt stuff can have dangerous voltages inside.
Got to know how to discharge capacitors safely.

Once you can take a piece of equipment apart and put it back together in the same condition without stray charge damaging it or yourself you start learning fast.
Just learning to use a multimeter & soldering iron, how to recognise and test the different components, their failure modes and relative likelihood of failure can take you a long way.

Many failures have happened before and are known faults. Searching the web, phoning or emailing a friendly service engineer can help a lot.
Circuit diagrams & service manuals are sometimes available as .pdf's online or cheaply on ebay.

Can almost get an education from YouTube too - lots of videos showing repair of electronic stuff.

Stay safe :)

I was part of a 3 man crew sailing a King40 from Key West to Kemah, Tx and found ourselves in the outer bands of Harvey because our weather radar was down and the ships we contacted along the way said nothing about a hurricane. It was only by chance and/or luck that we got a freak signal on a cell phone that let us know the weather we were in was way more than we thought before we got any closer to home. We were able to make the Louisiana coast finally, but it could have gone different very easily...

It's like the internet word 'surfing'.... Were you aware it actually means to ride upon a board on a wave?? ...
Haha just fucking with you.

Sorry to be pedantic Kieran but how about no 1 and then 2 and 3 and video no 4 and so on in chronological order. sorry to be even more pedantic and suggest that when you get to about 87 there is a 11 day ocean crossing by Riley when Elyna is in New Zealand with a friend and you may slip out of chronological order which would drive people like me insane but I think you get the idea.

Hey guys hope you see this!! I am a few months away from hitting my target to go travelling. Then i saw this page and its made me rethink completely how i might want to travel. I cant take my mind off a sailing world travel now. When you say its cheap to by a boat in Europe what was the price your thinking ?? I cant find a good sail boat under 25.000 pounds. Any recommendations id really appropriate :) thank, wish you both well

Matt if you want a slow but roomy cat for under 20k you could think about a Heavenly Twins.

I also know of a 37 foot Colvic Victor which is under 25k

Both are UK Irish prices. Actually you can take off 10% and say Price in euro.

Either of these boats are capable of blue water sailing and you can even beach a HT

Riley, love ya bro, but your assumptions about the pricing of yachts is off. When you bought your first boat the currency markets worked in your favor. There is the difference in the value of the currency between countries, and there is also the difference in the value of the currency between when your boat was new and what it's worth now and how that contrasts with the value of other currencies. It can get mind boggling. Value of boats are not always cheaper in the Mediterranean in your native currency. Thanks for the videos, I love your show.

Their new boat is nice, but they were doing essentially the same thing before on a boat that cost a small fraction of the Outremer. Many more people could afford their first boat than probably realize.

Our lives revolve around the choices we make. I think Riles and Elay have made some good choices, so far. Hell, they both have giant brass balls to throw it all to the wind and go for it, and I admire that.
minermarcus - 6 years ago
John Smith i think the point to understand is that sailing is for everyone who wants to do it. Riley and Elaina are intelligent, good looking youngsters who hit the right mark at the right time, but there are thousands out there sailing from all walks of life. Some much wealthier, some much poorer, some more handy, some more intelligent, but all of those who are out there doing it had a strong desire to do it or are partnered with someone with that strong impulse. As a lifelong sailor,I have seen many people look at buying a boat dreaming to go cruising, few of those bought a boat. Of those who bought a boat, few actually worked hard enough to save up a cruising fund and get the boat in shape, of those who did, half actually untied the docklines and spent significant time cruising. Of those few made it into a lifestyle.
I wouldn't trade the years I spent sailing for anything. It didn't hurt my career. I may go out again once my kids are out of high school.
If you have the desire for something, pursue it. Be it sailing, starting a company, making and marketing Utube videos...
Or if you prefer the 9-5 security and the white picket fence or whatever that translates into in your culture do that. But realize these are choices.
Bart Connolly
Bart Connolly - 6 years ago
Lawson " Had really nothing to do with them, aside from the fact that they are successful YouTubers."

Which is the point really isnt it! I mean they are sucessful youtubers doing WHAT? Sailing around the world in a boat. So sucessful they are more popular then the americas cup. The sailing came first BEFORE the videos which came about kind of by accident. But if they were sucessfull you tubers doing dry wall installation I doubt Outremer would have even heard of them. As it is the ratings for Beneteau go up and down each year as the sailing season comes and goes but the overall pattern is reversed for ONE type of Beneteau. the cyclades! which then drops off this year? Do you have any reason to suppose why that is true?
Michael Brashier
Michael Brashier - 6 years ago
I see your point John smith but it is true that "anyone can do it" meaning it is a thing that is possible. Anyone can do it is not that same as everyone can do it. It's like that movie Ratatouille. "Anyone can cook" means a chef could come from anywhere.
You don't have to score a sweet deal to afford to travel like this and like they said in the video the cheapest way is to simply crew aboard someone's boat.
Lawson Conner

+John Smith,
Sell the house don't sell the house. Buy a boat don't buy a boat.... ultimately the choice is yours and if you can't do it don't blame anyone else but yourself if you wished you had. SLV's job is to inspire those who really want to or are intrigued by the possibility.
Bart Connolly
Bart Connolly - 6 years ago
First of all you can actually buy an Outremer 45 for half a million so you are out by 100% in your comment on what you claim to be "facts"
Second they are actually buying their Outremer according to a plan they thought up themselves. They didn't win it in a lottery!
Also OTHER PEOPLE ARE doing the same thing! R+E just popularised it but people have being doing it for years. and some people have also died at sea or been killed by pirates. so what? some people fall down the stairs or are hit by cars when walking their dog.

Ill say it again the odds are NOT higher than winning the lottery! You can buy a boat for say 20k capable of going round the world. some people prefer to spend 20k in a month on a cruise ship . Whatever floats your boat.
But having some secure regular income is a good idea.

And they are not telling people to sell their home for a pipe dream. More like "rent your home for 2k a month ( if you can) and sail round for 1.5 k a month"

and many people in my country are in negative equity. I know of people who paid 650k for a house and can not get out of the mortgage and the house dropped to 400k. At lkeast the prices are beginning to clime but they are stuck with that house in that place for 30 years unless they sell up. Now maybe a boat would also lose value but at least they can move if they want.
Sailing La Vagabonde
Sailing La Vagabonde - 6 years ago
Valid points there mate and I sympathise.
I'm also thinking of young guys out there who googled "sailing" rather than "pokemon" and found our channel. I'm talking to everyone of course but sometimes its the younger lads. You don't need a $100,000 yacht to go on an adventure and if I was 20 I know what I would be buying instead of a car. Do a trade, figure out how to repair boats when they break, travel, learn french or spanish or both and work at different places around the world. Rigging, electronics, we met a young girl who was making a killing in the Caribbean scraping hulls with SCUBA.
For the rest of us, lets hope facebook launch those internet baloons.
I guess what I'm saying is that as a very long term "life" goal its achievable.
John Smith
John Smith - 6 years ago
I agree with you there that it is achievable to some extent. If you live on a costal city and perhaps cruise 6 months at a time or so. go back and work 6 months then return to cruise. But there is the real problem. This lifestyle requires you to basically not have a job. People who Vlog and are successful at it are the exception. Even if you were to own an internet based company it would be nearly impossible to work from the boat given the lack of continued internet. Now lets say you go cruise for 5 or 10 years. You have amazing stories experiences and pictures to share, but then what? What do you do when it comes to an end? You now have no career, no job and no retirement. The only thing you may have is a boat partially paid off that you can sell for pennies on the dollar of what you paid. So as you said its not really a good investment. Now the flip side of the coin is, you had a better 10 years of your life cruising then most people do in 30 years of retirement. I agree with that sentiment. I believe that i could get hit by a bus on my way to work. It may all be over before you ever get to retirement so why not play while you are younger. I totally get that and agree. After watching so many sailing vlogs, it seems like a very expensive life style. Forget the cost of the boat. Lets just talk about day to day living. Port fees, maintenance, diesel, food, blah blah blah. I make a pretty good livng at my job of 6 figures and i cant even imagine paying all the bills you guys have even if i kept my job let alone giving it up. I respect you both for what your doing and i of course love your content. It just seems so far off for so many of us. but then again maybe that is the point of your video. Keep up the good work and stay safe guys. Love from a land locked state coming your way.
Sailing La Vagabonde
Sailing La Vagabonde - 6 years ago
That is pretty much the exact opposite of what I think John I really do. I'm not of the philosophy that anyone can make it, I think that is incorrect. But to say that owning a boat and going cruising is an unreasonable goal is not correct either in my opinion. No one would think it is a silly or unreasonable goal to save up and buy a house but for some reason yacht is different. I know they aren't a particularly wise investment, like they wont go up in value, but what you get is infinitely more important. You can get them cheap, fix them, work as you go, travel home again, eat beans.
I think it is so achievable for most people. You just can't have the house as well.

@ Riley and Elayna Guys, first of i love you both although my comment might sound bullish, what it comes down to is im pissed off that im stuck in my office and you guys are having all the fun. (or atleast partly) but we have to be honest here. You guys are living a one in a million shot. lets face it, you basically won the lottery. And yes i know you worked hard on the oil rig to by your original boat and so on. But in reality what your doing is not a reasonable goal for most people. I think its fool hardy to encourage people to do it (as much as i want to do it myself) when the odds of being successful are less then winning the lottery.

For those older sailors who want to put off voyaging until they retire, remember no-one lives forever or always remain healthy into their later years. The La Vaga experience shows you what young fit people can achieve. This gets much harder over age 60, so go for it while you still can. One of the biggest causes for abandoning long distance voyaging is the death/serious illness of elderly relatives. Riley's dad was young enough to go along and help out. So for younger folks who want to follow the dream, go and then invite your old dad to go sailing when you reach an island paradise (I live in hope!)

Here in the UK at the moment old 1970-80 20-30 foot boats can be picked up from 2-5k making it very achievable, once your are ready to really invest in the 'big' boat then this first boat could almost be given away.

This is my plan for next year!!!

What do you think about the logistics of buying and selling 2 boats though. Or selling one and buying two, more correctly. Thats a fair bit of behind the scenes work (as we say).
Dave Liley

Buy a cheap smaller keel boat and sail for a couple of summers before buying that bigger boat for your world travels.
Learning the basics in this cheap boat (that won't break the bank if you break the boat) will gain you the experience to take better and safer decisions.
Also it is a way to dip your toe in to check it is really for you and any family you aim to travel with.
Hope this helps!

Kenneth thank you so much for writing that mate. We really do put everything into these videos. Sailing is HARD. Getting the smallest of jobs done onboard is hard let alone in a place you have never been before in another language. The videos take up all of our remaining time. We love it, we want to keep doing it for sure and reading your words you have written here makes it all worth while. Sharing as you said our "weaknesses, fears, difficulties, as well as joys, successes, and good times" is good for the show and good for the soul.
Kenneth Parker
Kenneth Parker - 6 years ago
Pete, disagreement doesn't necessarily imply disrespect. Your opinion is absolutely valid, I just feel they could easily make "watchable" videos and be successful without sharing so much of themselves and their personal lives. But, they choose to share themselves as well as their adventures, and for that I am grateful, Through their sharing we get to know them as "people", not just as "adventurers". They are unafraid to show their weaknesses, fears, difficulties, as well as their joys, successes, and good times. And, as I wrote earlier, for that I am grateful! As for the editing knowledge, this month marks 41 years since my first "professional" video production. I think, maybe, I might be getting the hang of it.
Pete Williams
Pete Williams - 6 years ago
Kenneth, you make some brilliant and sound points, except one. I like the way you have really nailed the aspects of editing and just how much time it consumes. No disrespect intended to yourself or SLV, albeit that statement alone indirectly implies, the opposite, however, moving on. I do not feel that SLV is generous in sharing their videos because the videos are content marketing, I.e. the content of the video is marketed and social media e.g. Youtube is a brilliant vehicle for content? YES, the videos are simply gorgeous in production and it looks like after the shakedown sail we're back on track with the 'sailing adventures' However, the videos are made as an income stream, they have to be because no self-respecting sailor would dedicate more time to video production that actual sailing. If I am mistaken then I will whole heartedly stand corrected and apologise, however, these videos are content marketing and not simply generous sharing. SLV need us as much as we want them?
Sailing La Vagabonde
Sailing La Vagabonde - 6 years ago

Kenneth Parker
Kenneth Parker - 6 years ago
There are so many variables, both technical and creative, when creating an unscripted video from unscripted footage that there simply is no accurate formula to estimate post production time. Just from the technical side a 3 minute video could take 2-3 hours one time, and 20 the next. Anyone who thinks editing video to tell a compelling story is easy, or fast, is simply ignorant (this is not necessarily a perjorative, it simply means they lack knowledge and understanding of the process). If they repeatedly do so, then they are stupid (and that is absolutely a perjorative). And then you must consider the actual creative elements of storytelling: what is the story, how do we tell that story in a compelling way, where do we want the story to lead (if the story is a part of an ongoing series like "Sailing La Vagabond"), what impact do we want the story to have on the viewers? All of these take time, and vast amounts of energy. And, because they are variable, can lead to having to rebuild the story and start over. If you can finish the edit on one video in a day you have done a great job. And, if it takes a week or more, you have still done a great job. What is important is to take a good story, and tell it well. In my not even close to humble opinion, the La Vagabond crew/team have done, and continue to do, an excellent job of telling their stories, and are very generous to share those stories with all of us.

Lawson To WHAT politics might you be referring? Would this be "political Geography"? I guess we are lucky they weren't on the other side of France ( La Manche) or visiting Islands North West of there.

Again not wanting to be pedantic but the Mediterranean is a SEA. Now you have forced me into fact checking every one of your videos. And I thought Donald Trump would never have to be mentioned?

Thank you. A guy the other day was asking why Elayna wasn't playing guitar because the editing shouldn't take more than an hour! I nearly fell off my chair, the outside one, which is dangerous because there is ocean nearby.

It's interesting to me how little understanding there is of how much work is involved in filming and editing good videos like these. There are some out there that think they can just go sailing and post some vid. These guys and the other successful tubers really put effort into crafting stories in video form. We appreciate your work!

Sailing La Vagabonde lol, thank you. My comment in no way is to disrespect to you. I envy you what you are doing and wish I had done that at your age. The fact that you're getting significant sponsorships is a testament to your videos and sailing ability and quite frankly your audience appeal. Fair winds and I look forward to watching your future travels.

The best thing about this channel is how genuine you seem. I don't get the sense that you guys are overreacting about anything that happens. Those moments when you are both in awe I can genuinely tell you are having a moment. It's such a beautiful dynamic you have in your relationship.
