    Island Hopping With a Broken Everything but that’s Cool (Sailing La Vagabonde) Ep. 70
    Sailing La Vagabonde



    Published on Jan 2, 2017
    There is an endless list of jobs that needs to be done and fixed onboard most yachts, like, always. You could stay in one port FOREVER if you wanted, preparing your vessel for a particular sail or even a circumnavigation up to your standards… but at some stage, you’ve just gotta leave or you’ll never go! Regardless of a few broken parts onboard, we left the main island of Vava’u for a little island hopping adventure (I should be noted, that we wouldn’t have done this if it was a large open ocean sail haha). We made do with what working gear we did have and found a few hidden gems just around the corner. I absolutely love this place, if I knew how to insert a few emoticon faces with love heart eyes on YouTube I would do about 10 of them right here.

    Join us in France to celebrate our new boat launch!!

    Boat Work In Exotic Places - Ep. 36 RAN Sailing
    RAN Sailing



    Published on Jan 7, 2017
    There's no time for rest on RAN! The day after arriving to the Caribbean it's already time to haul out in Grenada Marine. We spend the next days painting RAN, fixing stuff and getting rid of the horrible smell we've noticed for a couple of days. Then we get a very exciting invitation which was hard to say no to. To spend the Christmas sailing on a Swan 60!

    We are a Swedish couple who wanted a different kind of life. So we moved aboard our sailboat RAN, a custom built aluminium Beason 40, and untied the lines in the middle of the Swedish winter and started to sail south along the coast of Europe. There is no set route and we will go where the wind and our minds takes us.

    Read more about us and the boat and get updates and photos!

    Girl Stranded on a Deserted Island!
    Sailing La Vagabonde



    Published on Jan 7, 2017
    There I was, stranded on a tiny little deserted island in the archipelago of Vava’u - Tonga. However, I did do it to myself. I wanted to see what it would be like to be completely alone. I can’t remember ever being completely alone for longer than a day. EVER! That’s scary. And so were the wasps. Enjoy and tune in Monday for more sailing adventures in the beautiful sunny Pacific Ocean. Xox Elayna.

    In this episode of Sailing Nandji, we enjoy life living in the coral cay that is Lady Musgrave Island. This place has been one of the favourite places we have visited along the coast and definitely the coolest island. We explore what Lady Musgrave island has to offer, walking around the beaches, frolicking in the forrest and swimming in the shallows. We then head outside of the lagoon and dive all around the outside of the reef. We were treated with a massive spectacle of marine cretures. From eels to octopus, sharks to Eagle Rays. The wild life was stunning. Of course we played with our new drone toy Darryl and took to the skies to get a birds eye view of this slice of heaven.

    Man on trial for Murder flees our Anchorage by Yacht! (Sailing La Vagabonde) Ep. 71
    Sailing La Vagabonde



    Published on Jan 9, 2017
    An abandoned, creepy looking yacht called the ‘Sea Oak’ that was covered in security tape, was anchored right near La Vagabonde in Neiafu - Vava’u, Tonga. The captain of the vessel, Dean Fletcher, allegedly killed his wife onboard in July of 2016. He was placed in a Tongan jail until one night when he escaped his cell, swam out to his yacht and took off. The most action packed event the police have ever had to deal with in these quiet islands in the Pacific! With some pretty chilled out days for us on the water, we decided to follow the story up. Detective Elenita and Riles are out for now. Enjoy :)

    2017 Club Marine RPAYC Pittwater-Southport Yacht Race. Movie Start-On-Board-Finish
    Geoff Waller



    Published on Jan 11, 2017
    True to the forecast, a 15 knot southerly breeze had built to 20 knots by the time the Club Marine Pittwater to Southport fleet set off at 1pm on Monday January 2, 2017 from a long start line to the north of Palm Beach headland.
    Doug Coulter’s Rogers 46 Shakti won the clean start and led the fleet into choppy seas at a blistering pace in what is shaping up to be a fast dash north, riding on the back of a southerly front that swept through Sydney this morning.
    Three and a half hours later the Lake Macquarie entry was off Newcastle and had already covered 40 nautical miles, giving them an average speed of 11.4 knots. Closest to the front-runner was Phil Arnall’s Corby 43 Anger Management from Newcastle and the largest in the field, David Suttie’s Peklejus, a Radford 50 sailing for the organising club.Based on current speed Shakti is capable of setting a course time of just 30 hours for the Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club’s traditional New Year ocean race that finished off Southport’s Main Beach.

    World on Water Vendee Globe Report Jan 11 17 Day 66 Armel happy, Alex trying hard, Seb looks worried
    Geoff Waller



    Published on Jan 12, 2017
    Judging from today's positions the first boat to finish should be around January 19th or in just 7 days time.
    Today's report features Yann Elies, Armel etc and VG Live from Paris the retired skipper of SMA Paul Meilhat, Aussir Navigator Andrew Cape (recently on Maserati in the Hobart Race) and another report from Sebastien Destmarau is south dodging (he hopes) a big storm. Look at his report, he really looks worried. remember he has a number of broken ribs. We wish him well.
    Another non-missable report from www.boatson.tv the home of the weekly sailing TV news show "World on Water"

    Published on Jan 13, 2017
    Traffic at Cape Horn is high volume as two Vendee rookies and the "train", IDEC Sports with the crew of Francis Joyon all arrive to round it at the same time. Armel is still a hundred miles ahead of Welshman Alex. Meanwhile in Les Sables d'Olonne a huge storm delays the re-opening of the VG Race Village. No VG Live tomorrow.
    Day 67 Report, VG Live from Paris, interview with Alex, Jean Le Cam and Sebastien Destmarau.
