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! Itโ€™s funny how when things donโ€™t go as smooth as youโ€™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 . .
