One Month of Sailing in New Zealand. Trip of a Lifetime! Ep. 76

6. mars. 2017

Wow. We’d heard sailing the New Zealand coastline was going to be pretty epic, but we really had not expected such beauty. Sailing the rugged east coast from the Bay of Islands down to Auckland and back was quite the adventure. This weather is still going to take us some time to get used to. Join us in the longest SLV episode ever made!! It took me a bloody long time to make. Lots of love, Elayna
Don't forget to checkout Bryce and his channel!

    • @Sailing La Vagabonde hey there just a little trick I learned when cutting onions. If you take a sip of water and keep the water in your mouth while cutting onions your eyes won't burn. The water dilutes the intensity of the onion. Alright I just want to say I truly enjoy your videos and I am making serious plans to go sailing around the world myself. God bless ya'll

    • The government gang there is draconian; get ready to bend over because you will be treated as if you are a terrorist. Why does that news reporter at 37:00 in, say "so you've been sailing around the world for FORTY YEARS"... I keep replaying it and it sounds like forty? They aren't even forty years old???

  • I'm imagining Lenny growing up fearless. He'll have his own little sailboat and take local adventures wherever you are. Having kids on the cruiser boats has changed things quite a bit. All of this is happening as my wife (grandma) and I (grandpa) are taking care of our 20 month old grandson and his 8 month old sister for several hours each week.

  • Light a candle when chopping onions. You won't cry. Im serious. Also cut onion in half, rinse with water. Dry it with paper towel. That also cuts down on fumes.

  • Hi guys I stumbled across your videos by accident searching for diving & came up with your recent upload 2021. I really enjoyed....okay I loved what I watched . So much so I've gone back to the beginning ep1 and am now currently catching up. 😘 I'm currently at this video with the wife following too. I agree with what you said in the tv interview previously the same scripted stuff frys your brain . Lol. .I feel the need to comment on this video after you hooked up with your ole pal oakey . this ep caused our chuckle muscles too fracture .& really hope you invite him too join you onboard at a later date . Was great too see you all smiling & laughing hard. You make an amazing couple both laid back and your beauty just shines from inside out . Looking forward to catching back up too the present time, whilst also seeing your own family arrive and grow onboard plus the arrival of the catamaran .Wishing you all the very best . Keep safe & keep smiling laughing through through the tough times as you do . Thank you for your help getting us through the covid lockdown when we all need positivity in our lives . Happy new year All the best for 2021.

The whole world's going to change in the next 10 years. Sailboats are probably the way to go at this time. Please look up Joe Rogan experience with Eon musk NOworld.

  • Cut onions with a small fan directed to the left or right of the chopping area. If you have no fan keep your mouth closed while chopping or step outside with your cutting broad. Just for the record the fan trick is also handy when changing diapers.

  • Great videos. I have a tip for you. When cutting onions wear underwater goggles, they work a treat. I've been wearing goggles for thirty years when peeling and chopping onions. I used to wear the full face mask with the 18 inch pipe connected and a ping pong ball in the end. I stopped wearing that cos I got a knock at the door and opened the door looking like turnip and trying to hold a sensible conversation with a neighbour who was still in hysterics when he left. Funnily enough, his eyes were steaming but not because of onions! Needless to say, I decided to wear just the goggles that cover they eyes. Ok, you may look daft, but better that than your eyes stinging. If you are just cutting onions, then do it underwater, the onion under water that is. I've just noticed in ep 76 about 20 mins in, there was a shark in view. Its dorsal fin was huge, bigger than the boats Happy sailing

  • Being sea-sick has nothing to do with being or not being 'a certain kind of person'. You can be totally into sailing mentally and emotionally and your body might just feel differently.
