    S\V Delos- Passage To Indonesia




    Published on Jan 19, 2014
    The crew leaves Darwin, Australia and sails over 600NM to the Spice Islands in Indonesia! During the 5 day sail we entertain ourselves with fishing, showering, and general lazing around. We arrived in Banda Neira in the early morning hours to a sweet view of the volcanic peaks

    35. S\V Delos- Passage To Ternate



    Published on Nov 13, 2014
    After two incredible months in Raja Ampat the crew pulls up the hook and sets sail for Ternate Island in the Muluku Province. We see squalls, calms, and wind from every direction. With our motor broken the sail is slow but peaceful.

    We dodge some more squalls, catch a Mahi-Mahi and Barracuda, and get visited by a massive pod of dolphins that play in our bow wake for hours.

    [h=1]Sail Loot Podcast 018: More Delos Adventures with Brady & Josje[/h]
    By Teddy on February 19, 2015

    It only took 17 Sail Loot Podcasts to get an interview with the other half of the S\V Delos crew recorded and released. Suweeeeeet!

    I got to talk to Brian and Karin back in Sail Loot Podcast 001. This time around I had an awesome chat with Brady and Josje!

    We put the pieces of the Delos story together in this episode. I caught up with Brady and Josje while they were in New Zealand visiting Josje’s family. They only had a few weeks until they headed out to re-board Delos after over a year.

    When they left Delos in January of 2014, they were boarding another sailing vessel to get paid some sail loot instead of spending their sail loot. They’ve since saved a little bit of money, taken some time to catch up with family and friends on land, and are back on Delos for more sailing adventures!

    They plan to keep producing their amazing videos to inspire people to sail, travel, and follow their dreams. If you’d like to help with their sweet video making cause, and keep the Delos adventure going strong, then you should check them out over at Patreon.com/svdelos. You can also find them over at svdelos.com, and their Delos Facebook Page!

    Enjoy the show!
