We Swam with the Whales! (Sailing La Vagabonde) Ep. 69

We were so lucky to get to swim right beside a big mumma and her calf, for 3 whole dives​​.​ Vava’u – Tonga, what a place!​ We celebrate a traditional root tea ‘Kava’ ceremony, which made our conversations amongst our table a l​iiiiii​ittle deeper and more relaxed​..​. Riley claims it was just the beers. Also, meet some of our new pals from the water and ​get a real taste of the place. ​Congrats to our winning Patrons, we hope you can make it aboard! These videos are made possible by you. Elay xo

    Wishing you safe adventures in 2017, as you move into the world of Sailing Catamarans. All the best from Florida, USA

    First off Merry Christmas and Hope you have a Super New Year. I loved this episode especially the story of the two Aussies losing their rudder. When I bought my first sailboat some 22 years ago the rudder fell off just 10 miles after we started the 30 mile journey to my home port. Boat had wheel steering so my friend and I used a boat hook attached to a piece of plywood that was aboard and fashioned a rudder and hung it off the stern and bingo we were able to steer it home. What memories. Thank God we were not out in big water. Loved the swimming with the whales. Great show indeed. God Bless you both and as always fair winds and calm seas. Captain Dave aboard s/v Morning Star…Key West Fl.
