Welcome to Sailing La Vagabonde! We’re Riley & Elayna, an Australian couple documenting our journey traveling the world by sail despite no previous sailing experience.
Since late 2014 we’ve been filming our adventures on YouTube full-time as we’ve crossed the Mediterranean, Atlantic, Caribbean, and Pacific Ocean.
We’ve suffered terrifying storms, pirate scares, financial breakdowns, equipment failures, water shortages, and other ‘interesting’ mishaps but we wouldn’t trade living on the Sea and traveling wherever the wind takes us for anything.

“You’ll realise the Atlantic is just like doing a few smaller passages in a row. It is a seminal moment, as the world seems to shrink. I think that it is a bit like falling in love, in that when it’s time to head off for good, you will just know.”Riley Whitelum, Sailing La Vagabonde
