Sailing Upwind, it Sucks (Sailing La Vagabonde) Ep. 125

Off we go, sailing upwind for a 260nm journey to Sardinia. On top of that, a broken engine upon our arrival means we received some help upon our arrival. But this has got to be one of my favourite adventures of the year! It’s funny how when things don’t go as smooth as you’d expected, those end up being the best memories. Bye bye to the lovely Josje and Tunisia. Checkout Josjes channel below!

is that right . self-imposed weight restriction hello my . name is hand dale me all right what's . going on elena first day of winter yeah . actually i don't know you what the first . official day of winter is but it's . getting so cold that we've had to go . into the forward cabin and unbury this . gigantic container a wall about winter . clothes it's about 15 degrees and you . want to go to slow bad guy oh my gosh . jacket yay this is a pretty sad day . isn't it sad but also exciting looking . forward to the change but i know i'm . gonna regret saying that it's so cold in . like we went to tunisia then we came . here and all of a sudden that's freezing . yeah it's looking pretty ominous what do . you start complaining about that even . though i'm sure god we need to stop . complaining about the cold let's embrace . it . hallet saints don't glove like this in a . while the stacked of lightning and we . probably didn't pick the best night to . go roam in the street because i think . it's gonna buck it down with rain but . classic bit of style vlogging roi you . know i've got a camera in one hand and a . dirty stinking bag of rubbish in the. town of calais etta is actually an . island southwest of sardinia called sant . antioch or with only around 3,000 locals . living there it was pretty quiet while . up or down outside we were indoors . playing pinball in a bar . yes i i realized that the negative was . in the wrong position but we hadn't . changed it so i put the negative back . i've tried connecting both engines and . trying to start it like you showed me to . make sure it wasn't a battery problem no . okay then i think maybe when you connect . the two engines back together you have . nothing okay no and i think you have a . forum you have a poem on the end yeah . they say did you try to did you know i . wanted to talk to you and then i would . change it but that's what i think as . well to sum it up i changed out the mdi . control box which is the electrical . component of the on switch for the . engine nolan so he just confirmed what . you were guessing but you didn't want to . go ripping it apart i thought of a . timing first yeah he's good sticking and . it's awesome to have the correct spares . staining boy that never would have. happened on our first boat ilona nah . never ever you ready rally . whoa sounds good. with a fixed engine and the weather. having cleared up my mood was lifted . while there was sunshine we plan to . explore calais set up before we would . set sow to menorca to meet our patrons . so join us next week for another . adventure as always thanks for watching . and please like and share this video . with your friends if you liked it . cheers. you . .
