SCARED FOR MY LIFE! Sailing at 22 knots boat speed down HUGE waves [Ep. 105]

Yep, La Vagabonde reached 22.7 knots boat speed. We couldn’t believe it. With a max of 28 knots wind behind us from about 120 degrees, we surfed down one wave and then caught the next one in front of that. Before we knew it we were all looking at a 22.7 on the nav gear. I had a close eye on the bows making sure they weren’t going to bury, they looked like they might but Riley “promised” me that it was normal and fine!! Matthieu says we could have got 25 knots so looks like Riley will be aiming for that next time… I never thought I’d go this fast on a sail boat. Still in recovery from this wild experience. Very happy to still be here to tell you this tale, to be alive and writing this very description is a miracle. I love you guys, Elayna.

  1. Very well done, mates; it’s the height of hurricane season here in the US, the record was broken for sustained windspeed of one hundred eighty miles per hour, Irma was the name for the category five, which devastated Florida and the Islands of the SW Atlantic!

  2. Hi Riles,

    Looks like great fun, I’m assuming you were on autopilot when you were running? Can you go into more details about that autopilot and whats its limitations are, I dont know that I would have ever trusted an autopilot while running like that but what do i know!

  3. Kitchen knives held on a magnetic holder are fine for a house but may inflict a lot of damage if “the unexpected” happens in a boat.

  4. Love all the sailing and the ocean shots!! Beautiful!! Love the speed!! Fun!! What is the draft ? You have a skull of a cow on the wall?
    Love

  5. Hi Elayna & Riley & Daniel. What a ride! Riley has been waiting for that ever since the change-over. But scared poor Elayna near witless!
    Just hope the front pointy bits don’t dig in!!
