Double BIRTHDAY Celebrations in the Azores (BEST Weekend Ever..)

#268 Hello, yeah, look, we blew up the quadbike. Or it blew up on us. And it wasted our day. And it gave out in the middle of a highway and we nearly melted in the sun. And yet, yet, this is the Azores. And being the Azores, nothing can actually go that far wrong, because pretty much wherever you are, wherever you look, it's beautiful and green and peaceful. Keep an eye out for the only tea plantation in Europe, with some of the best tea you can get. Turns out I've been having my tea wrong all my life and there's this one weird old trick....

Otherwise we're setting up shop on Sao Miguel. We'll be staying on land for a while because we know we're gonna have to spend some serious time here and it's going to be near impossible to leave. But yeah, consider this a long-winded way of saying you're formally invited to our weekend birthday celebrations, come hang out!

I can smell land! FINALLY Made it to the AZORES ISLANDS!

#265 I've never been this sick before...
It's pretty rough when you have some bad seasickness which you can't escape. Lenny and Riley at the helm as we wrangle some bad weather at the very first stretch of our foray into the Atlantic. The Azores better be worth it!

Bonus: Riley puts on his meteorologist hat for a forensic post-mortem of the journey to the Azores. Every hour and day matters and timing, as you'll see, is so critical to planning and executing our journeys.

BOAT LIFE: 24 Hours at Sea!

Learn how to freedive from the best of the best:

#271 Hey guys, come aboard with us as we get moving through onwards the Azores. It takes the whole SLV family to get ready and be sailing at all hours round the clock. And while Lenny's sailing ability is naturally limited at this young age, we expect him to be sailing us around by age 6 and we'll never have to take night shift again. In the meantime we are so blessed to have Andre crewing with us as we make it to the next island. We're headed to Terceira and its capital Angra do Heroísmo where we get to explore a stunning 500 year old town.

No adventure is complete without some food shortages, pragmatic menus and failed hunts, but that's boat life. Thank you all so much again for watching and continuing to support our adventures, and welcome into our life onboard on a crossing.

If you know someone who can get Andre in the Volvo Ocean race as an OBR, he would be forever grateful if you emailed him: andre@cinesailing.com. Website:

A Trip to Crater Island. + boat repairs & fiberglassing of course

#269 It's certainly feeling like we're never gonna leave Ponta Delgada. This time though it's because of the mounting pile of tasks, dodgy ovens and fibreglass repairs. La Vaga is looking more like a construction barge than home right now. As much as we want a functioning kitchen, we're really itching to get out on the water again. Especially because a submerged crater is just sitting there, come on let's goooooooo.

And we have a late change to the squad: Bri is leaving us, fair winds! But Andre returns, back on the boat for our Azores adventures. Welcome back, and let's hit the water.
