ONE WEEK to Prepare for 16 Days at Sea (Atlantic Crossing)

22. feb.. 2021
328 967 Ganger

#291 Join us as we sail down from Madeira to Tenerife. Jack and Andre join us on board to prepare for the Atlantic crossing back to the warm weather, clear water and fish galore. We're excited but there's lots to do before the boys were ready to go. I (Elayna) was more than happy to sit this one out. Pregnant, seasickness, toddler, I'm sure you understand - haha!
6 years ago we crossed the Atlantic with Jack. If you'd like to revisit it, you can watch it here:
Crazy to think how much has changed since then. Jack has gone from having never sailed to sailing obsessed. Having just introduced him to paragliding, I can foresee a new obsession on the horizon.

  • For the safety hatches a "quick fix" if you take some "flexseal" waterproof sealer tape and cut it in thin strips and put it over the rubber seal it may be hard to close but it'll seal "watertight" and still open may take 2 people to close it one outside in the water pushing and one pulling it closed and locking it but it works wonders.

  • easiest way to find were a hatch it leaking from, open the hatch, clean both sides, rub chalk on the fixed side (i.e the hull) then close the hatch. if the hatch is perfect you'll have a nice even line the entire way around. If there are any dodgy bits you'll get a weak line or a missed bit.

  • Riley! I love you, and I say this with love and concern... you don’t look yourself. You look unhealthy. Your hair has thinned significantly and you are losing weight. When is the last time you got checked out by the doctor? I am afraid you are sick. I hope you get a clear bill of health soon just to be extra safe. This channel wouldn’t be the same without you!

  • How many Africans did you allow to stay on your Catarman, which were given to you? 5, 2, even 1? Why, because you can't trust them with your wife and son. If we meet in the El Caribe, I'll still have that chat We live and learn. Lived in 10+ countries, and been to 80 + I see what the Africans have done to my Homeland, Germany, what they have done to France, Spain, Sweden, Norway, on and on it goes unto the United States. I am sure NZ, and OZ is the same

  • I just subscribed. Love your videos. Forgive me if you’ve already answered this… what do you do for a living to make this possible? I am 46 years old and interested in sailing. I’ve been powerboating all my life. I’m ready to take the next step and sail in the Caribbean…a expensive endeavor even for a short period of time. Second question… In Lou of my age (I’m in good shape) where should I start in the BVI?

  • What a beautiful area guys! Sending prayers for the family!!!!!! Enjoy everything!

  • These are very interesting videos and a great change of pace. It’s more than a bit concerning that this is at least the 2nd repair needed on the structural portion of the boat that supports and operatives the steering and autopilot system. Remember Riley and Andre had to glass in a bracket for the autopilot mount. This is not a good testimonial for the overall engineering and construction of this brand of boat. These areas should NEVER crack. And these did after what? 2-3 years? Maybe they’re not engineered and built for Atlantic crossings. Just Med coastal cruising? But, it gets pretty rough there too.

  • TBH, even it’s a new boat it looks like a paper boat e.g. built very lightly...seeing the previous videos where seats are flying, that rudder steering system etc. So the famous and endless discussions what’s blue can and will break, structural things should not break in normal use

    Say OnaraSay OnaraDag siden
  • Or, Andre is working on himself and is open to trying meditation. It looked like he was giving it an honest go. How many of us put off doing something to improve ourselves because we worry about being laughed at? Brave Andre. Kind of a cheap shot at him. Kind of a "making fun of the little brother" vibe.

  • @Sailing La Vagabonde, where were you exactly in Tenerife? I used to live there for over 20 years... El Teide, still active Volcano and with 3714 meters the highest elevation in Spain. I used to live near Los Christianos in the South of the island. Great stuff to do there, and the diving is insane if you're into that.
