Join us for a rainy day sailing to Rhode Island, tacking upwind in some less than ideal conditions. Somehow, it was the funnest day we’ve had out on the ocean in a while. We also show you some of Newport’s hidden gems.
If you’re interested in donating to our Kangaroo Island fund, the people and animals of Kangaroo Island would appreciate your help ??? www.gofundme.com/kangarooisland absolutely every cent counts! We love you guys. The crew on La Vagabonde and the whole of Australia thanks you. xx

Hello Riley and Elayna… and Lenny! If you were asked, where in your travels, would you like to go back to and spend a few months… where would that be? Love you guys!
Early release of a video released last week. Great !
Lenny is growing so fast! It’s so great to have a happy kid on board! Wishing you all the best!!
Lenny is so photogenic, very handsome little boy! He’s very entertaining to watch! I guess grass is a bit of a novelty for him. Thanks for sharing your life and this journey to Rhode Island. I always look forward to seeing what it’s like onshore in the places you visit. I was interested to see by how much your catamaran pitched on the wind as I am thinking of buying a cat and have previously owned monohulls. It seems they don’t get in the groove and keep their rails down as much as a monohull, or do you think there isn’t a lot of difference? Newport is a pretty place with a lot of yachting and america’s cup history. Regards Murray and Jean, Australia.
Baby is getting big, be careful and good luck.
Leny is beter everitime, but take care yhe seasis always dangerous eben in good wheter, Lovefrom Paulo Rio d Janeiro.
This is the solution to seawater egress into your saildrive oil:
The saildrives are not vented, so when they get hot and the oil expands, it gets pushed out through the lower prop seals. After shutdown and the unit cools, a vacuum develops and draws seawater back in through the prop shaft seals. The more hearing and cooling cycles, the more the shaft seals wear and leak. The solution is to vent the oil case. Do this by drill and tap the oil cap. Put a 1/4″ hose barb fitting into the cap, and connect tubing from the cap to above the waterline inside the engine room. This acts as a standpipe. Put a fresh set of lower seals in and your mikly oil days are gone. I’ve operated our SD-20s like this successfully for over 5000 hours
I was curious what date you were in Fairhaven, Massachusetts ?
Love your budding family.
