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!

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.

Such stunning scenery. I enjoy this a lot. Reminds me of my trips where I take the good music like the Guns N Roses, Imagine Draongs or the Delta Parole and then enjoy the powerful feeling of the sea. ¡vamos!

Hi guys I love sailing (Mediterranean sea), I've sailed always during light time and if at night it has been on quiet sea. ¿How do you manage at night with such big waves and strong winds? you can't see the waves!

Why the hell would someone do something like this? They all seem scared and want to be somewhere else. The one woman with an obnoxious voice just moans about everything!

You all are amazing sailors. With a sea that rough and so much wind, I would have been scared to death. Kudos to all of you.

These are the episodes I miss. I understand though with a bambino/a on the way, things need to be mellow. It's great the way you take rookies out and teach them the craft. Fair winds to you guys 👍⛵

A real purist would toss the weather radar, the electric bilge pumps, the GPS, the radio, the diesel engine and the smart phone over the side and do it like Magellan did. LOL...Just kidding....I should not give this crew any bad ideas.

Why would you throw a piece of trash into the water? No need to be a jerk, even in rough seas.
Duffy Nightingale
Damn. You all are salty dogs now. Literally! Folks, remember waves are always bigger than they look in the vid so.... WOW! I am amazed the dodger didn’t get wiped out. You will never regret doing all this stuff when you were young. Trust me.

Love heavy weather sailing. Once was caught in chabasco coming up from Cabo to San Diego. Steady 45 with gusts to 55+ steep breaking rollers as we were fairly close in. Full moon, white speum - so besutiful.

My favorite episode so far... Great sailing guys... The manual way to open or roll the Genoa was the only "mistake" Amel made on supermaramu 2000 in my opinion obviously they changed it and on the more recent models its very easy to use but in those conditions wasn't really funny to have that kind of problem... Good job once again guys...
