#270 Equipped with the best local advice (thank you Nuno and Julia!), we're moving onwards from Ponta Delgada. Thus far we've only hit the first island of the Azores and we're making tracks to the next ones, and we can barely believe that it can get even better. That's the word on the street anyway.
We're Governo dos Açores aprovada 👍 to sail about and catch a fish, the wind's chillin' so we're taking it slow and steady on the way to Ilha Terceira. Compared to how the Atlantic has treated us before, we're always grateful when Neptune is in a good mood.

  • I think you should gather video clips from viewers & patrons giving testimonials as to how you have inspired them, effected their paths in life, giving their own adventure stories inspired by you! Create a community where people becomes a network of adventurers, sailors & travelers! Do it every 6 months. Sailors love their sailing communities. Create your own community of voyeurs & doers! We all back you. Now let’s get to know each other better. I love my sailing community & would love to become a part of yours! Amazing job both of you!

  • I completely enjoy your content when I have the occasion to watch your videos. Nobody but you three can truly know your worth and value to the collective social mediascape, however the proof of your value can definitely be measured by the interest it compels. I salute your efforts and wish the three of you all good things. Most of the haters will never be able to comprehend the work and dedication involved in such a venture as yours. To hell with them and their small minded judgement! Keep on keeping on La Vagabond🌞🌙✨

  • Just a different business model. That's all. Totally valid. You're not begging. You're providing a product up front and giving people a choice. It's arguably more admirable than a typical business model where people shell out cash and may or may not like the product afterwards. How many movies have we all paid for that we hated? How many refunds did we get for those movies?

I bounce back and forth between the older content and the newer content and OMG how Lenny has grown! You are my most favorite Creators between all of the social media apps. Thank you so much for having the ability to bring me outside of my world with the ability to pull me into what is attainable. How you do that I don't know but it is what it is and I believe that is why so many of us love you guys. I will become a Patreon for the first time ever very shortly. You. Are. Worth. It. Thanks again and happy sailing my friends 💜💜💜.

  • You are so great and keep Lenny absolutely safe. We preschool teachers love our lines on the floor to give a visual cue for children. Would a red taped line that Lenny sees on the deck that he cannot cross towards the front of the boat be useful?

  • You shouldn't* feel the need to apologise for your opening statements. Those who can contribute as patrons should do so, if they want to and their financial circumstances allow for it. To support such excellent content and also the huge back catalogue you guys have, of an amazing journey, should be a proud investment for anyone to support. I've been watching since day one, I've watched every episode, but only a few weeks ago did I finally find myself in financially stable enough to now contribute regularly as a Patron. I love what what you guys do, I'm excited for your future. Don't apologise for living the dream, or for asking for support, it helps make better content, so just rock on keep asking I say 🙌

Things just get easier as babies grow and things started looking like ya were getting annoyed but just love your life and remember every day there’s people who wish they could do what u do for a living, don’t ever feel guilty. You guys are the shit , as far as relationship goes , nobody is better for Lenny than both of you guys so In other words the search is over and you guys are great for each other . I’ve been watching for a few years and elaina your awesome :) an awesome mama

  • Don't ever feel bad about having a patreon again, guys! You provide incredible content for free, and most of us get it without paying a single cent. People that want to help out a little more and are able to have the option to become a patron. I'd say that's way more than fair for all that you guys do. We totally get it, and none of your real fans are going to bat an eye about it. Keep on keeping on. Great video.

I’ve been watching you guys for only 2 and a half years, and Seeing Lenny in this tonight reminded me of the book , kensukes kingdom... written by Michael Morpurgo. PLEASE read this before letting Lenny read it, few years yet... but I was 11 when I did. All about sailing. Michael Morpurgo is a famous English writer of our country and is originally from Cornwall.

I've recently watched Sir David Attenborough program A Life on Our Planet | Netflix Perhaps with your platform you can help bring awareness to these issues.

I have to admit, I get jealous at times, like wtf, people are paying for this amazing lifestyle for somebody else. But honestly, how I really do feel, is that I couldn't live without you guys. You bring all of my traveling dreams to fruition. And because of that you will become the first channel that I join Patreon for. You both deserve it. You work hard to bring us peace, calm, love, laughter, and easy happiness once per week. Thank you. I adore you three and look forward to the future with you. Oh and you are one of the rare channels that I could start over again watching and it wouldn't get old. Thank you Thank you Thank you. 💗💗💗

Did you know that the Azores has a condition in its population called the Machado-Joesph Disease (similar time Huntingtons’s Disease) and Groote Eylandt in the Northern Territory also has an Aboriginal population living with the same disease. Travelled to Australia through the Macassan traders! It’s a pretty awful disease to have with no known cure and predominantly unknown by the general population in Australia 🙁

Think of it this way, if people have so much time in the daily life to tear down others making a living, doing what they love... perhaps they are just not happy with themselves. Thank you for sharing you all go through unwarranted critics... but honestly, everyone does so don't ever be discouraged about it. If you think about it with a different perspective, that should encourage you to keep going R!!!

  • I don't understand why you might feel guilty for your life, if people get it, fine---if others are bitter because you would like more $$ support I don't understand why they care enough to bug you. You Tube is sortof free, watching all the ads is payment. If you're not content with that model no one is forcing you to continue. I watch some of your videos and obviously I enjoy them enough to watch, but not enough to do more. I offer some small support to someone else on Patreon and I have my own reasons for doing that, but I certainly feel its not a obligation.

  • I don't think you guys have any reason at all to feel guilty about the way that you EARN your living and have a great deal to be proud of. Anyone one who donates to you does so entirely because they want to and no other reason, I dare say there are many more who would but (myself included) can't at present. So, on that account I wish you every success in your endeavours and aspirations. BTW. I also share your attitude about flying national flags. Far as I'm concerned I'am a citizen of the Earth and I happen to have been born where my mother was at the time, which had nothing to do with me, and therefore is nothing for me to be proud of in itself. I just have to field the consequences of it. People carry on as if they chose their parents for goodness sake! You live a life which does as little harm to the environment as possible, you treat each other and those you meet well and you entertain us as you do it - now that is something to be proud of.
