VIDEO: A tropical storm is coming

Published on February 24th, 2020

Despite beginning with no previous sailing experience, Australian couple Riley & Elayna have been documenting their journey traveling the world by sail.

Since late 2014 they’ve been sharing their adventures on the Sailing La Vagabonde YouTube channel as they’ve crossed the Mediterranean, Atlantic, Caribbean, and Pacific Ocean.

Now on a Outremer 45 catamaran, here’s their latest episode uploaded on Feb 24, 2020.

Episode summary:
We’re sailing Greta Thunberg across the North Atlantic Ocean. There’s a named tropical storm headed our way. I’ve made the decision not to tell anyone other than Nikki who absolutely needed to know what situation we were in. We’ve also been experiencing surprise wind gusts of up to 50 knots. This time we got caught out with a full main and jib up. Don’t miss this episode onboard La Vagabonde!
