  2. Superbe chaîne. Je me fais quelques épisodes tous les soirs, génial et bravo ! Plaisant de voir que la genèse se passe juste à côté de chez moi! Il me semble que tu as oublié de dire le tarif du bateau? La coque en elle même… au plaisir de suivre ta chaîne 😉

  10. so few days ago i came by with this sailing boat lifestyle and thought wow, this could be a good idea for off grid living,,,but man…after some research I figured it's nothing but challenge , keeping busy, new issues all the time….basically, you have to pay for fuel much more than your car, you have to have permission to more the boat and pay high fees, you have to buy water, you have to clean toilet, you have to eat food that's either canned or dry, you hardly get any comfortable sleep,,,so for someone looking for as hassle free lifestyle as possible, just live at your parents, hahahahha…

  11. I would not find that kind of sleep schedule very restful at all. I would be a mess after 2 or 3 days.

  12. That’s crazy. I did 50 miles per day coastal cruising. I would never solo blue water.

  13. Being barefoot when boiling water in an open pan is sure asking for very big trouble. The more so in a chopping sea.

    J'ai vu un équipier débarqué d'urgence quand une casserole d'eau bouillante lui est tombé sur les cuisses. C'était il y a plus de 50 ans aux Glénans et depuis personne à mon bord ne fait ce genre d'opération : il y a un tablier de ciré qu'utilisent les pécheurs oui est pendu à un crocher près du réchaud et il y a une obligation de le prendre…
    T'imagines si ça t'arrive seul en plein océan ??…

  14. You're a great inspiration to me! One question: Why did you choose your electric autopilot over a mechanic wind pilot?

  15. I would risk 2 hr sleep..

  17. If ever you're on another solo, or perhaps have time on your next endeavor, might I recommend a great book to read: Kon Tiki by Thor Heyerdahl. Assuming you haven't read it, this is a great sailing story, and part of why I like your channel.

  18. I know nothing about sailing – nothing. Still, I quite enjoy your posts. I think a person has to be a little crazy to do what you do, I mean that as a compliment. Well done. I find your posts "becalming."

  22. I bet you see all the stars you normally wouldn’t see being in the middle of nowhere correct? Also, what’s the strangest thing you’ve seen or experienced while at sea? You’ve gained a subscriber! Keep up the great videos. 👍🏼

  23. Lying in bed now and I'd be moody if I don't get 8 hours! Fair play on those 15 mint naps

  24. Wait! Are you actually Lil Dicky??

  25. I die if i sleep only 15 min. 😀

    Reply
  26. Do you think there is any way to do this solo without the auto-pilot? Like in the past before it was invented did people always just duo or what. Becoming lost at sea seems nightmarish imo

    Reply
  27. A quick tip is to have a loop of bungee tied around the boom to hook over the reefing hook to hold the reef in place while you go back. Sometimes the wind can blow it off otherwise.

  28. Lil Dicky!

  30. Don't sleep again near or under the stove when food is cooking, you don't know what can cause that hot food to spill on you and then you could have a very bad day or week.

  31. You sir, are a sailing animal😀👊

  32. Great practical advice! Plus it's great seeing some actual technical aspects of sailing. My favourite sailing vlog now.

    Reply
  33. I admire the courage, spirit of adventure and ability to single-hand the boat. I wish you many safe journeys. Being able to sleep in 15 min increments? Wow, perhaps is I am really tired, like I imagine you get. 🙂

    Reply
  34. It's good to go low key on the technical stuff, but maybe you should consider investing in AIS so that you can sleep longer and better. Bad sleep is a good way to make mistakes. But you make very nice films, real reality without all the drinking and pirate crap that many others do.

  35. That boat is not 28 feet ,maybe 23

  38. ~ 🚨 😴 💤 🛏 🕰 ~
    Would you consider to get a radar unit which sets off an alarm🚨 if something gets too close to you and then sleep😴💤 for one hour at a time? 🕰

  42. I crossed from Italy to Gran Canaria with a Gambling 34, i noticed your mast because i had the same one, with the same sail hanks made in white plastic for the main, i broke dozen of them in rough sea and low wind later on crossin to St.Lucia….Have fun, good wind.

  43. So glad I found this channel!

  44. Im new to sailing so not that experienced but If you had a transmitting AIS system would you be able to sleep a full night?

  45. Woah!! Santa Eulalia??? I live there :))

  46. It takes me 10 to 15 minutes to fall asleep, regardless how tired i am . . . so i would never sleep

  47. Why not just eat dehydrated food. skip cooking. and put some music on

    Reply
  48. Great clear audio at the start without any wind noise ! The open rolling paper towels directly above the stove scares the sh^t out of me … so cool that you caught the turtle on video, crazy turtle ! ! I really admire your respect for weather and ocean and for your ability to be flexible and to just go with the flow with no concern with time or for keeping a schedule. That's real sailing ! ! !

  49. Eh beh… pieds nus… le jour où tu vas te péter un doigt de pied coincé dans un bout' ! idem pour la cuisine pied nu, c'est très désagréable la bouffe (ou un liquide) bouillante qui t'atterrit sur le pied ! et je ne te cause même pas de passer du cockpit à la cuisine via la descente avec une lame nue (un couteau) à la main ; tout ça, c'est franchement pas sécuritaire, surtout en solo ; à part ça, elles sont très bien tes vidéos, qui me rappellent mes croisières en solo sur un écume de mer il y a déja longtemps, dans des contrées plus froides 😉
