In this episode we sail through the roaring 40s and it was crazy! Definitely the most intense part of our 3000NM passage from South Africa to La Reunion. We had wind speeds of over 50kn, 23-32ft (7-10m) waves and in the middle of everything our autopilot breaks and it’s hand steering from now on! A bit of a tester as our new crew have not hand steered before. Our whole world was getting slammed and tossed around in the waves and I think Brady described it pretty well “It feels like if your driving a car, with your eyes closed on a bumpy dirt road for days. Knowing your going to hit a tree but not knowing when you’re going to hit that tree. So all of a sudden you’re just driving and BOOM!“
Get ready for some hectic weather :D hope you Like!
Much Love, Karin, Brian and Mr Brady!

This is our story, a story of three souls sailing around the world. It is a story about sailing and travel and adventure. But it's also a story about meeting amazing people and making life long friends. It's a story of people living their lives in an alternate way, in close connection with the beautiful people and amazing planet that we call home. Our experience has affected us so profoundly we want to share it, hoping that others may find inspiration to follow their dreams and do what they love.

Sailing SV Delos The Horn of Africa ! Bad ass , only The Crazy Brave Sail it. You and your boat WILL take a beating there. The problem with your auto pilot is you bought South African junk that came from China.

Ps: Karin is right...aprehension and the feeling to be alone in a vast ocean. I mean one can't really follow the thoughts without feeling concern...10.000 feet of water below, 800 miles from land. No other boats around...and 50 knots wind up the pipe. Scary.

Lots of adrenalin. That was the most thrilling ep.I held my breath a few times. I am glad Brady said it sometimes was scary....because I thought so. Man oh man. One of those waves the wrong way..... Uhhhh oh. But DELOS and crew did superbly.

Few weeks ago googtubes algo, not sure what I was watching before, popped up the popular aussie sailing channel's first voyage, which I binged, which led to a bunch of other cruiser channels, which led me to your channel, which seems to be the og of this apparently very wide and now established cruising sailing tube network. I'd expect a lot more views and subs soon. Probs hit a mil subs before the end of the year.

Wow! That wave action was really cool. There's water everywhere! Hang on. The "like driving a car, blindfolded..."is perfect and humourous, and then....puph. 🤣 That wind in the background is a steady moan. Too cool again! You're in a marathon, for sure. You guys were so happy to hit land after that epic sail. Sail on.

Are we all going to ignore the fact that she said she opened the window to throw out trash? Really?

I mean amazing trip. Question: why are you not all wearing safety equipment( harnesses which are small but inflate). They are so light and have gps. You fall off and no one will see or find you. I was holding my breath several times.
Duffy Nightingale
I know this is financed by us but who financed the 53' Amel to begin with?? That's OK. I don't need to know. Pretty dang cool guys n gals. If the waves look big in the vid, and they do, they were MASSIVELY HUGE in real life!!

I watch this over and over thx. I have recently been diagnosed with cancer and I am going to sea I hope, once more while I still can. It's not bad cancer? But it's cancer. I love your channel, thank you.

Hats off the the EXPLORERS of the past Balboa, Cabot, Magellan, Columbus,... DeGAMA The first guy to sail around the Cape of Good Hope to India........ This sailing is with a state of the art boat, gortex rain gear, GPS, weather forecasts, food, heat, beds, and more. Imagine much worse conditions, because you don't have the forcast to direct you away from the worst, with much less capable equipment..... FOR MONTHS not days. Still very enjoyable from my couch. Thank you.

Crazy! I've been in weather like that, but only for the day and 2 k's of the coast... Do you think a cat could handle that? let's say 35 40 - 45ft?

... I had to strain to understand some of the accents and then music was too loud // distracting. Great vid otherwise and some fine editing of those huge rolling waves ... Courageous crew !

the brass planetary drive gear could have been 'jerry rigged' but, not sure if you had the plastic stationary gear to replace the won that you already replaced. (btw, that was a boner move to not figure out why the plastic drive case was worn before you replaced it. ) but, to jerry rig the 'warbled out' brass gears, you can use TIN FOIL over the pin, and it will take up the slop in the brass gear. if it is really bad then double up the tin foil. but, Im sure one layer of tin foil would have tightened up that slop and you would be on your way.
