Sailing Around the World (Sailing La Vagabonde) - Ep. 1 Intro & Sailing Turkey

  • Publicado el 23 nov 2014
  • Having zero knowledge or experience with sailing, or even how to furl in the head sail, we bought a yacht in Italy.. we plan to circumnavigate the globe eventually, or just get the boat back to Australia. Documenting the voyage as we go. Turns out sailing isn't always as relaxing or easy as it looks and we are forever learning new things (seems to be not always the easy way).. Enjoy the video & subscribe to follow the voyage!

    Wouldn't it be great if all the morons on here too lazy to find out how Riley paid for the boat but still full enough of spite and bullshit to make claims about him having it bought for him by his parents etc actually took the time to become less ill-informed. Dipshits.

      I figured he saved up. Didnt he work on the rigs? That pays well enough to buy a boat.

      When it's dark cold windy an varaible ...they don't tend to film much , it moistly can't be done , can't be done safely , and sometimes is a brisk joy. The Pacific is kewl on a calm day.the best. Crossing it ,is a gaint leap.

    I have news for you, Riley: the "pride and joy" of your boat is not the solar panels. It's Elayna.

  • Ettore Zuccarino
    Ettore Zuccarino Hace 6 años +232

    dear Elayne and Riley, little by little I have been captured by the simple openness with which you come across. I admire your well matched beautiful youth and love the sunsets that now and then pop up. When young (I am now a young 87), I was a sea captain and made my career on the Italian Line passengers liners totaling well over 1 million miles in the open oceans. I mention this so that you believe me when I tell you have been truly two crazy kids with couple skilled helpers from up there who must love you beyond understanding. Yet, all this said, you really must be two very, very smart kids and have learned the ropes in a hurry. I have seen how you displayed a spinnaker, how you keep the sail set for best slot ( I assume you know what I am talking about) and I would have sworn you were old hats.... You fooled me.
    Yet, PLEASE, beware! the sea is not kind to fools and soon or later it will bite you in the butt! I pray you will be prepared. I love your videos !!! One day I plan to lock myself in the office and watch your entire voyage. In the meantime may you have fair winds with God's blessings. Eyes open. No fear. BE safe! Peace, Ettore
    PS. Heavens, kids, had been many time in Freemantle and Perth but do not recall the heavy accent Riley has. We should all speak Esperanto!

      I myself found their vids but a few days ago and have watched in a hopscotch way . I finally watched numer uno . I am absolutely gobsmacked finding out neither had any previous nautical skills . Truly amazing, but quite obvious they are two high IQd individuals. Both mentally and physically. Good day to you sir . I enjoyed your comment .

    I'm starting at Ep 1... We just returned from visiting my partner's family who live on their boat in southern France - we sailed a bit out of port to the islands of St Honorat and St. Marguerite on the Riviera - it was AMAZING.... I'm fascinated by the lifestyle. Thought I would check out some sailing life videos, to see if this is a dream I can realize. Never mind my fear of the sea and sea life - I'm determined to overcome it, so I'm watching.... then I hear you say you purchased your boat in Bari! CIAO! (My partner is from Bari - you should've seen his smile when he heard that.) Thank you for sharing your lifestyle. Looking forward to catching up with your present videos. Much love from Italy!!!!!

    After what was probably a year of watching La Vagabonde videos I FINALLY made it through to the present. It's been an adventure. You've gotten so damn good at editing Elayna! Really, your videos now are so professional and top notch. You guys have 1m subs because of the endless improvement to quality. Those classes you guys took made a big difference. Your commitment to the subscribers is beyond any other sailing vlog. Mad props. I hope to watch for many more years. I went back to episode one to at least see how a few of the first episodes were in comparison. What an epic adventure you guys have taken. My wife and I try to adventure as much as possible with a home base. Our friends and family sure think we do a lot but I've always wanted to make that commitment to full time. It's difficult without having the bank roll or the mobile work. I'd love to figure out an income that could come with me on our travels. Anyway, just wanted to say I'm a big fan and that I'm looking forward to the future. You've inspired millions of people to at least be somewhat more adventurous. Also to take better care of their planet. You two are great role models for our generation. Mad

    Riley and Elayna, you are both freakin amazing. Here I am, and Australian in London, and I am so inspired by your story. What keeps me going is the prospect of such escapades (on a more minor scale). In fact I've just paid a deposit on a 36 footer and have the inspection tomorrow - you have calmed my nerves and reinvogorate the challenge in me. PS. love the fact you read so much - you're not the average bears.

    Now that they’re a family, thought it would be interesting to come back a few years later and watch all these early episodes again. Knowing how far they’ve come, and how things have changed, and how much we’ve all grown through their adventure, it was an interesting re-exploration of the origin story. Happy patreon for years, and ardent follower. These episodes make me smile when I recall how they made me feel when I first came across them so many years ago..

SO many speak of likebeing prepared and what not and it's not wrong but on the same time, to just go out and do something is often the best way of learning too! Hats of for your courageous sense of adventure and love how erm sorry I missed the names but the lass swimming to get the tender , followed up by bloke on rubber duck style swimming. Presumably she is the better swimmer then ,) Anyway, great video!! Aloha.

    This is hilarious, going back to watch this. It's easy to see why you fell for Elayna (even if she did have trouble remembering where she was from!😉). Speaking of which- you lied! You're from Cowell (did it take a couple of years to rev up the courage to admit it?😁). It's obvious why you've both been successful, you're such lovely people. Great to have watched over the years, your skills and you lives have developed amazingly. Stay well, stay happy. Cheers.

    I've wanted to do this since I read " The Dove " back in high school! You guys seem like a great couple. I've watched a few episodes but finally decided to start at the beginning.

    You are both good adventurers, I would love to sail the old school by compass and looking at stars or moon to work out direction, technology helped a lot. Enjoy the trip, hope to meet you one day.

No pun intended .. your movies are a literal escape from the realities of living w a disability. Although my body cannot do what you guys can, I'm so glad that through your videos my soul and my mind feel as though I'm experiencing something special just in a different way.I hope you k

    I am so glad I found this. I am in it for the long haul and plan on binging. Of course I subscribed, and will encourage others to do the same. Or, actually follow suit, buy a vessel and sail around the planet! God bless the both of you. Love and Adventures. j
    P.s. The guitar at the end was powerful. And the camera work is impeccable! And this is the first video??? Wow.

    Can’t believe it’s been 3 years since I first stumbled upon this magical channel. You guys have sure come a long way! Sic Parvis Magna or greatness from small beginnings as Sir Francis Drake would say.

    Firstly, many congratulations for your videos. I really value your courage and spirit of adventure. You won another subscriber (from Portugal).
    You should come to Portugal, we have a country full of history, plenty of sun and great places to sail.
    Keep up with your great work.

    Good on you Riley! I sailed a Beneteau 40 in SoCal USA for 15 years, and other boats before that. Kudos to you for making a plan, and working the plan. Looking forward to all your vids.

    Hey Riley and Elayna!
    I just came from your most recent video of you checking into the Barbados. I have been subscribed for about 2 years now and just wanted to tell you how beautiful your journey has been. Watching you two for the last 2 years has inspired me to chase my own dream of one day doing what you do now. I don't know if you guys will ever see this comment, but I want you both to know that you've made an impact in my life that will never be forgotten. Please keep the channel going as long as you can with the kid coming aboard. I'll say it again; you two are the biggest inpirations in my life. Never stop inspiring!
    With love,

    So here it is September 13 2021 & the world has gone completely mad. I've been watching your videos for six years now, & I've gone back to watch your first video, only to be reminded of the freedoms we've lost, & just how irrational & totalitarian the world has truly become! These are indeed dangerous times my friends, & your videos are a much needed mental medicine of hope!
