Our Biggest SAIL However | Sailing Soulianis – Ep. forty one





It is ultimately starting up to come to feel like we’re cruising! In this episode, we prep for our longest sail nonetheless: 190 miles from St. Joseph Point to Clearwater. We give you a peak inside of our ditch package, set up a MOB (guy overboard) machine in every single of our lifejackets, and check our PLB (particular locating beacon).

Then, we established sail! We have an wonderful downwind wing-on-wing daysail to our overnight anchorage, spend a terrible night time on the hook and wake up early to get tossed all over in rolly seas. The 1st component of our passage is marked by visits from dozens of dolphins, and we never see an additional ship for around 24 several hours even though crossing the Gulf of Mexico, all by itself.

Hope you delight in!
Lauren & Kirk

  2. A suggestion from a single handed sailor – add 2-3 empty plastic water bottles to your “ditch-kit” / grab-bag. This will ensure that would float in the water should an emergency occur. Tks for the videos guys!

  5. Great video as always.  

    The difference between an EPIRB and PLB is a little more than battery life. A PLB as you pointed out is a "Personal Locator Beacon", and is only registered to one person, and, it can be taken anywhere, boating, skiing, hiking, rafting, flying, horseback riding and so on. Once a PLB is activated the SAR (Search And Rescue) teams will ONLY be looking for you, and not others in your party if separated. If you're unconscious and cannot communicate there are others in your party they may not find them, or even know to look for them.

    The EPIRB is registered to the vessel, and not a person. This means if the vessel can carry 8 passengers the SAR teams will be looking for a potential 8 crew and passengers until they are informed otherwise.

    If I take am EPRIB skiing and active it on the side of a mountain, they will be looking for the vessel. If I take a PLB on a small cruise ship and activate it, they will just be looking for me personally and not all the cruise ship passengers. Of course neither one of those are realistic scenarios, but just examples of the differences other than battery life.

    Our ditch bag has both, along with a handheld VHF with DCS and our vessel's MMSI programed. So if we are to get separated from the vessel, we can still be identified and associated with our ship's name and registration.

    Hope this information is helpful to those watching and learning about all the in's and out's of boating. Everyday is a lesson on the water, be safe and have fun.

  8. I'm not sure I understand why you can't sail directly down wind. It would seem that would be the ideal sail. Can someone explain? I really enjoy following your videos. Stay safe and enjoy the moment.

  11. 7:25 got her face thinking nobody was looking. People make interesting faces when they arent being looked at, in comparison to the faces they make in conversation.

  12. I was wondering what those pirate ships were doing there, haha. Must have cost a pretty penny to have them there as background haha 🙂 I always appreciate the editing and stunning visuals of your videos! I love how much work you guys put in to making the videos so beautiful and professional! Thanks for working hard for my enjoyment!!! I think it would be really cool in future videos if you took a little time to go over and explain some of your actions as you're sailing, so that non sailors have a chance to learn a little bit. You guys already do this a lot, which is why I love you, and I realize it's hard to film and do that with only two people, but I love seeing the behind the scenes of real life on a boat. Makes it feel like I'm right there with you guys on a joyride! Just a suggestion, take it or leave it. Also, not sure where you guys are planning to travel to in the future, but I hope one day we see more of Lake Michigan. That's where my heart is, and I love seeing places I recognize. I just visited the Mackinaw Marina yesterday to look at all the pretty boats! Anyways, wish you guys the best! P.S. that hook at the end was scary…I really hope all that work Kirk put into the electricals isn't ruined!!!

  13. You know when the weather is really bouncing your boat around you can take a tie line to your Stern tie the other end of the line to your anchor chainand use a winch to adjust until you get like a bridal going off your side and turns you sideways to the waves and then you just bob up and down instead of rolling back and forth and up and down

  14. Very very NICE…

  15. Great video work with a nice description of your MOB equipment. Somebody else has probably already noted this, but it is more important to stay on the boat. Jacklines and harnesses are the way to go even in calm conditions. Rogue waves do occur. Have fun and be safe!

  18. Matt…Just a suggestion; could you include the name of the songs and artists in your background music? I loved that closing song.

  19. The replicas of the Nina and Pinta made a good background for your video at the Panama City Marina. Hurricane Michael destroyed this place. 96 boats sunk. Enjoyed your observations about the crossing.

  20. Kirk, Welcome to the feeling of freedom and responsibility that your own boat will give you. Sail Long and Sail Safe.

  30. Curious as to why the autopilot wouldn't perform very well in the big swells. Is it just not responsive enough? ?

  31. Put a fishing lure out and enjoy the ride.

  32. Love your details of Gulf Passage because one day when I have my own boat, I’ll be making that same crossing (from Louisiana to Florida)…

  35. You are in the hot weather now and time for shorts and T-shirts and flip flops. Cheeseburger in Paradise. If you go down intercoastal you can see Cabbage Key and Cayo Casa Island where there is a nice place to anchor too. You will see other boats in there. Your swing keel should be able to get into there.

  36. I enjoy seeing you guys video. I just wish they came out more often. Where are you guys now? I know your not in Clearwater anymore because it's no longer chilly in Florida.

  37. I dont get the jackets in July. Its 94 degrees F here in SC. I cant even go out side. How is it so cool that much further south?

  38. Nice Video Guys, We are happy to be here at the beginning of your journey. Stay Safe. Looking forward to your next post. Enjoy!

  39. Glad you are making way. If someone asked me "what is sailing all about", I'd point them to this episode. The bad and (very eloquently Kirk!) the good with the always-present focus on safety and equipment issues.

  40. That was great until you got all emotional at the end…..Your A Man! The automatic back to back advertising gimmick sucks but it’s youre channel. I’d use that advertising money and by an EPIRB 24 hours ain’t enough 70 or 7 miles off the coast. USN 89-95 Rescue Swimmer School GRADUATE 1990
