    Default If you are fed up with La Vagabonde....

    ... try Ryan and Sophie sailing.

    For us they are one of our success stories. We taught them how to sail a few years ago in Gib. Now they are sailing their own yacht as full time liveaboards and do a cracking blog and you tube stuff.

    Dined with them yesterday and they set off this morning for Cape Verdes. A lovely couple and for anyone interested, I hope you enjoy the vids.

    Good luck dudes on your voyage!

    I should point out that Ryan is a well laid back American and Sophie is a French babe!

    With highly animated facial expressions or maybe that is when she is on camera. Ryan and Sophie are in my current top 5 of sailing YouTubers.

    SV Delos has gone off the boil this year.

    Sailing Kittiwake is likely to appeal to a British audience, low key and non flash that demonstrates a low budget approach to living aboard.

    More with Brit appeal:

    Sailing Fair Isle features an early retiree couple taking it slow in the Med aboard their beautiful 48' Hans Christian. They are ex. TV production people hence the video quality is good though the dialogue often seems to be lifted from the local tourist information office.

    Finally Sailing SV Bora Bora is completing a 3? year Atlantic circuit aboard a Victory 40, they started from Turf Lock on the Exe. Their sailing and voyaging style is probably closest to what I dream of doing one day.

    My favourite is probably Sailing With the Flo, young English couple on a fairly small budget who have so far crossed both the Atlantic and Pacific.

    Re Vagabonde,

    I was wondering if we could club together and charter a carbon neutral attack sub, I'm sure Jeremy Clarkson would help the project - the only snag is the wailing brat might overload the passive sonar requiring ear defenders and a deck gun fitted - we could fund it by selling time slots with the gun a la Golden Shot - ' up a bit, left a bit '

    Why do people want to watch films of other people sailing? (or doing anything)..

    I am genuinely interested as I have never wanted to watch such presentations but do understand that many do.

    Good question - I never watch ' sport ' on tv, detest football in every way, don't watch motorsport - which is much better on tv than standing by a track with no clue who /what went by - and I can't watch more than a couple of minutes of even extreme sailing.

    I guess it's a case of not following the herd - whenever I'm travelling ( not necessarily driving ) and fancy a meal and a soft drink, if I see a pub with a sign ' Big TV sports here ' I think ' ta for the tip ' and go straight by to somewhere decent.

    Could not agree more than 500%! sport on TV is the big thing here and i hate it even in Hooters!

    +1, except for my one mate with a YT channel ( Sailing Embla), whose channel I watch because I know him, I find sailing channels painfully dull , not the sailing exploits so much as the protagonists and their personalities.
    People keep going on about bikinis, why don't they just watch pornography instead of pretending they are interested in looking at AWB's
