Rough Seas on my 1200nm Solo Sail

R6 (Daily Vlog 10 of 21) Some sail changes and fitness in todays episode. Mother nature however can’t seem to make her mind up as we have a bit of inconsistent wind and sloppy seas causing La Vagabonde to wobble around a bit. There is a bit of “12th man” quoting Richie Beneaud (most of you may not know what I’m referring to here unless you have been following the sport cricket for the last 10 years or more), some podcasting and poor captaining decisions.

  1. To avoid moving the jib car under load, put a snatch block on the rail forward of the car and run a temporary sheet through that block. Take up the load on that, ease off the “old” sheet, move the car, and then reverse the steps. 🙂

  2. Agreed! Excellent video coverage of your trip Riley. When moving a car under load you might want to try; first, loosen the sheet a bit, then second, use your foot (with shoes on) to step on the sheet forward of the car to flatten it to the deck, then three, move the car. Much safer and still gives you a free hand to hold on with.

  3. So I am adding that your story has passed into the blandness of most other sailing stories. It is just not near as interesting without the two if you together. That said, her side is also pretty boring too. There is just something that just “works’ with the two of you exploring the world together. If I was you I would marry her before somebody else comes along and put a ring on it. Ps. The boat is not your wife. Your wife is your life. For real brother.

  4. I have been watching the two of you for a fare while but I have never seen you change the oil and filter in the motor or fuel filters

  5. I must have missed something in the videos or it wasn’t clearly explained..
    Why is Riley sailing solo to New Zealand? Was it that it was a personal challenge he wanted to accomplish or did Elayna need to go ashore and handle business of one thing or another?

      Riley’s spoken to many solo sailors over the years and he’s wanted to experience it for himself.

  6. I do accept as true with all of the ideas you have presented for your post. They are really convincing and will certainly work. Nonetheless, the posts are very brief for starters. May just you please prolong them a little from subsequent time? Thanks for the post.
