    BABY ONBOARD our Sailboat 👶 ⛵We’re back!!!! Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 259

    March 8, 2020


    – [Brian] This is the story of Delos, a sailboat adventurizing around the world for the past 10 years. (upbeat music)
    (water splashing) And now we embark on our
    greatest adventure of all. (film reel clicking) Come join us as we take to the high seas and travel the world with the
    newest member of our crew. If you enjoy Delos
    videos, please subscribe. It’s a great way to support our channel. – So we have just arrived back on Delos and it feels absolutely crazy,
    – Good morning. and a little bit overwhelming for sure and the night is here. – Somebody was up at
    oh-dark-30 this morning. (upbeat music) Good morning, Sierra. Did you sleep good? Do you like living in a tent? It’s not so bad, huh? It’s time to start the day Sierra. There we go. So Sierra, she likes to wake up early, she wakes up at like, oh six o’clock and I try and give Mom
    a little bit of rest ’cause Karin is still
    nursing her at nights. In fact, you wake up about
    every two to three hours, so it’s like your mommy’s been on watch for the last four months can you imagine being on
    watch for four months? No, it’s crazy and so I try
    and take her a little bit in the morning let Mom sleep in a bit and then we sit up here in
    the cockpit, I drink coffee and we play some games,
    flying baby maggot. Yeah, I sing some songs, ♪ Out came the sun ♪ ♪ And dried up all the rain ♪ ♪ And the itsy-bitsy like it ♪ ♪ Went up the spout again ♪ We just generally sit here
    and stare at the water. We both enjoy it, we
    were sailing on this boat until your mommy, known as
    Kazza, was seven months pregnant. And when she was seven months pregnant, her belly was huge and you were
    inside there, that’s right. Then we parked the boat
    and your uncle Brady, and aunt Alex sailed the
    boat across the Atlantic and we went to Sweden and
    that’s where you were born you were born in Sweden,
    a place called Gotland which is a small island,
    where your mormor lives. Welcome to Gotland. No way! (laughing) How did your mom get on the sign? – I don’t know, it’s really funny. – [Brian] It’s funny? – She’s like, “Look out for
    my face, I’m on the board,” I was like, “Okay” and there she was. It’s both our names. Took care of everything, okay. – [Brian] Welcome to our new home. – Welcome home my love, we
    have a little apartment. – I know.
    – It feels so weird. – [Brian] No way, Kazza
    come check this out. Look at that, that’s good news
    fiber, we got fiber Kazza. – Hey, come in. – [Brian] She’s filming too. – Yay!
    – Why did you need to do this? – [Brian] Hey Mormor. (speaking in foreign language) – Hey, Brian. (speaking in foreign language) – [Brian] So this is our apartment in Sweden, it’s pretty nice, huh? I got a big monitor for
    doing computer work. This is our couch, here’s my beer we also have a TV, which is quite nice. This is our little bedroom, there’s the belly. (laughing) – In my underwear. To take a photo. – [Brian] Hold on what’s going on here? Okay, now I’m so sorry about that. – Are you recording now? – [Brian] I’m now recording. – Are you sure? – [Brian] This is our first baby visit. – Yes, the first–
    – In Sweden. – baby visit in Sweden and it went really good,
    the lady was super nice Ava and she was very
    keen in speaking English. Feel the head down there. – [Brian] Yes so the head is down? – Yes.
    – Yeah. And the feet are kind of up here so. – [Brian] So that’s good. – I think so. – [Nurse] That’s good, that’s good. – [Brian] Have you found
    it to be difficult going to four different doctors and or
    in four different countries over the course of the pregnancy? – I mean, she was actually surprised about how many tests I’ve done. Always quite interesting because you know, you really know what’s gonna happen or what tests they’re gonna do. – [Brian] It’s always
    a little bit different. – Yeah, it’s always different, different countries have different things and he just told us now, that we’re gonna do another blood test. – [Brian] Yeah, here you go,
    man, thank you very much. We’ll give you a call
    if we need a ride back it might be a few hours, okay. – [Karin] 6:30. – [Brian] 6:30 in the morning. – In Sweden you take one
    ultrasound, I think I’ve done five. – [Brian] Did you feel something? – No just weird to see like. – [Brian] ‘Cause you have
    the screen over there I was wondering what you were looking at. (laughing) – [Man] Do you guys want to– – [Brian] I was like,
    what is she coming to do she’s not even interested, there’s a screen over
    there too, that’s smart you guys have this set up like you’ve done this before, haven’t you? – And we’ve done so many
    blood tests and everything so I think I’ve actually
    checked up way more than I would if I would have stayed here. But I also think it’s been
    pretty straightforward because I’ve gotten a lot
    of help from followers, which have been absolutely incredible. Telling me like, “Oh, if you
    come here you need a doctor “this is the one I went too.” That has been really, really nice and I felt that it was
    too hard except in the US it was really hard like we weren’t able to see a doctor there. But it made me appreciate
    how easy it’s been in all the other places in the Caribbean. It feels a peanut? – [Brian] A peanut? What’s the baby countdown,
    what do we got now? – Six weeks and three days left. – [Brian] No way! – Let’s do this. (upbeat music) This is just nice summer, where you can lay on a
    blanket on the sun outside and just do nothing. It’s been a really nice day here today and the belly is doing good. – Look at that.
    – I know. – [Brian] It looks like you
    swallowed a beach volleyball. Oh, was that you laughing? – Yeah, sorry. – [Brian] I can feel that, I can feel her moving around in there. Oh what the shit!
    – I know. – [Brian] Did you see that? Oh my–
    – That was a big one. – [Brian] That is the craziest thing she is getting strong. – [Karin] Yes. – [Brian] What does that feel like? – [Karin] It’s like an
    alien inside my belly, is what it feels like. – [Brian] Oh my gosh. We’re two weeks to the due days. – Yeah, like two and a half weeks I think something like that, which
    is coming up pretty fast. – [Brian] We’ve been
    procrastinating about a name. – Yeah, the baby name, the
    names are still a bit of a struggle, I think we have
    a few that we kind of like but it’s definitely hard and it goes back and forth a little bit. I think we’re doing good. – [Brian] Yeah, we’re doing good. – Yeah, it’s just hard
    with certain things like when you drop something you’re like shit you know to pick it up and
    stuff, it’s getting harder but so far I think
    we’re doing really well. – [Brian] It’s getting tougher to touch the computer and edit. – Yes I have to like. – [Brian] ‘Cause you’re
    sitting so far from the table. Okay, back to Stranger Things. – Yeah, let’s watch our series. It’s really bright out, super bright and it’s her official due date today but it doesn’t seem like
    she’s too keen to come out so, today we just been
    relaxing, taking it easy we’ve be working a little
    bit and taking a little walk around the park, which was super nice. And it’s a bit crazy that
    today is the due date I don’t know, it’s one of
    those things where you like kind of focus on this date and
    then the further gets to it, you kind of realize that she can come whenever she wants, right? – [Brian] What’s the news? – Oh!
    – Oh! – So he’s called the, I’m just gonna wait. – [Brian] Yeah, you just
    wait, you take your time I’ll start my contraction timer. I had a four minute 32nd
    interval on that one well, the news from the– – So the news from the lady that I called they answer straightaway,
    which is very nice. And I just kind of told
    her that I’ve been having these kind of like one minute
    contractions all night. This is like the first phase probably, so I’m in the first phase of? – [Brian] Labor. – The labor business and
    she said, the best thing I can do now is to rest,
    try to get some sleep because the real whole is coming and you don’t know how
    long it’s gonna take and eat carbs, have a nap, take a shower. She said you will feel
    when you need to come in. – [Brian] Starting, okay,
    so today we’re gonna chill we’re gonna watch a little bit of TV we’re gonna eat carbs, we’re out. It’s almost game time. It is nearly go time and
    we have decided to head into the (speaking in
    foreign language) center contractions are about what
    five to six minutes apart and getting more and more robust. – Yes changes it’s like more in the hips it’s quite intense, it’s
    gonna be interesting to sit in the car. – [Brian] Okay, I’m gonna
    turn this camera off we’re gonna get down there. So this monitor is reading contractions, when this gets up to 100% it means it’s a very strong contraction. Here’s the last two they’ve peaked out here it comes, baby’s heartbeat is good, there it is.
    – Oh shit. – [Brian] I’m glad we came in. Okay, it’s the next morning
    and we had a nice little bath last night to try
    and ease some of the pain which I think helped quite a lot. But then the and they’re kind
    and they put to bed together so that I could stay close to Karin and when we woke up this
    morning, her water broke. So that’s a good sign
    and they’re monitoring the baby’s heartbeat and Karin’s heartbeat and also the contractions. She ate an entire bowl
    of lactose free yogurt and a pear but she did not drink her tea and that is the baby
    update for this morning. We’re so close to being near the end now it’s not even funny, it’s
    been a hell of a mission but I think we have one more hour left according to the midwife then we should meet our daughter are you hanging in there Kazza? – [Karin] I’ve so many tubes in my body. – [Brian] Yeah, we’ve
    got gas, we’ve got a drip to help the blood pressure, we’ve got that. We decided to go with the epidural like for the last few hours, which
    I think was a crucial call. – [Karin] Yeah. – [Midwife] (speaking in foreign language) (groaning) – [Midwife] (speaking
    in foreign language). – [Brian] Head is out Karin, head is out. – [Midwife] (speaking
    in foreign language). – [Brian] Holy shit! Oh my gosh, Karin she’s out, you did it. – [Midwife] Wow, you did it. – [Brian] Oh my God. – [Midwife] She’s perfect, at last, hello. – [Brian] Oh my God good job. So proud of you. – [Midwife] (speaking
    in foreign language). – [Brian] 10:45, that was
    probably the craziest thing I’ve ever seen in my entire life. How many of have you done? – [Midwife] Many. – [Brian] Good job. Awesome job. – [Midwife] I work for
    42 years as a midwife. – [Brian] I’m glad you’re here today thank you.
    – Thank you. – [Midwife] My problem
    is how can I finish? Because I love my job. – [Brian] Yeah of course, you’re bringing new life into the world. – Yeah, yeah, yeah.
    – It’s amazing, can I cut the cord? – [Midwife] Absolutely. – [Brian] Between the two scissors okay welcome to the world, you’re gonna have a hell of a life. – [Midwife] On the boat? (laughing) Around the world?
    – Yeah. – [Karin] (speaking in foreign language) – [Woman] (speaking in foreign language). – [Brian] Look at those
    curious little eyes. (sighing) – We did it. – [Brian] Good job, amazing,
    now begins the adventure. (baby crying) Bloody murder, bloody murder. So we’ve learned Sierra has
    three modes, she has angel mode where she lays there like a little angel. She has squiggly worm mode. (babbling) And she has screaming demon mode. (baby crying) And she can flip back and
    forth between these modes like either progressively or randomly. – The only ways to get her to fall asleep is to put her in the harness. (upbeat music) – Okay, that’s sort of our
    ritual but it works look and she’s now gone into angel mode. Little Sierra likes to be walked to sleep. – I love her face when she wakes up because she’s always really
    squishy, good morning. – Wow last night I’d changed
    her diaper four times for poops and two times for pees within
    like a three hour period that’s crazy but we’re using these– – Cloth diapers.
    – Cloth diapers which is nice. And we just living life here. (upbeat music) – [Karin] Almost what six weeks? And she can hold her little head up. – [Brian] What? – [Karin] Look at her. – [Brian] Whoa! (speaking in foreign language) Hello, it’s another Friday night here show you what we get up to. (baby crying) Come on Sierra, there’s
    nothing to cry about tonight, everything’s just fine. Whoa, Sierra! (speaking in foreign language) Yes! – [Karin] I did it. – Yes you did it. – It’s our last morning
    here in the apartment and it feels really sad, feels insane that we’re leaving today been here for six months and
    it’s just literally flown by like, I don’t know where the time has gone feels pretty crazy but
    we’ve done a lot of things and I have given birth to a baby and she’s four months, which is awesome. And we’re leaving Sweden. – All right Kazza, here we go it’s time to say goodbye to the apartment. – Yeah, time to go, we
    had a lot of thoughts stuff and a baby. – Hi, baby are you ready to go to America and then the sail a boat home. Yeah, all right let’s go. (upbeat music) – World traveler on her way. – [Brian] We’re not even
    in the airport five minutes we have our first disaster. – Shit everywhere.
    – Oh god. (speaking in foreign language) (speaking in foreign language) – Thanks you so much. – [Brian] Thank you for
    everything, it was awesome. – It’s been so great to have you here. – It has been awesome and
    here I won’t be needing this where we’re going. – I will be needing two. – Bye. Here we go Sierra next stop, America. (upbeat music) Wow what a mission? – [Karin] Yeah, it was a long trip. – Can’t believe it that’s
    like we started yesterday so it’s been over 24 hours of traveling. She did so good, imagine her
    first like long international flight, there’s no major. – I’m really proud of Sierra,
    I’m mostly proud of Sierra. – She cried a little bit I thought it was gonna be a disaster. – Yeah, me too. – And now hopefully Papa
    Dallas is gonna pick us up. (upbeat music) It is two in the morning
    and somebody is jet lagged how are you jet lag, wide awake. – It’s five o’clock in the morning Sierra is still awake, we’ll see I don’t really know anything
    about how to like reverse or how to get rid of this
    jet lag in babies this young but people have done it before so when I get internet tomorrow because my phone is not
    connected, I’ll do some research. (upbeat music) – I love you so much. – [Brian] This is your grandma. – I love you so much. – [Brian] She’s a happy
    baby, hi happy babby? – Hi, I can’t believe you’re at our house. – And we’re off to Delos
    tomorrow, so exciting, can’t wait. There’s a lot of stuff, baby
    and it’s like four o’clock in the morning and we should
    have left like 15 minutes ago there’s just so much

    A unique trip on the ship of Peter the Great — Voyage sur le navire de Pierre le Grand (EN, FR subs)

    February 7, 2020


    Traveling on a frigate is, first of all, a unique life experience. If we consider it as an ordinary rest, then this is probably a different story, because it’s not a rest at all. This is more of a work in the shoes of a sailor of the 18th century. That is, the frigate itself is an exact copy of Peter the Great’s ship, built to protect St. Petersburg. And sailing on it is, first of all, gaining the experience of life of a sailor of the 18th century. Because the crew of the ship is not guests, this is the team. That is, we set sail ourselves, scrub the deck, shoot cannons, and study all the wisdom of shipping, as it was in the 18th century. Trip is divided into two stages, each of them for 7 days. One of them is the transition from Amsterdam to Saint-Malo with the approach on the way to the port cities. And the second is Saint-Malo, across the English Channel, to La Rochelle. During these two stages, we occur (depending on the weather, of course) an entry into coastal cities, their plunder… and, of course, probably one of the greatest values ​​of this trip is a team. We ourselves have been preparing this journey for 2 years and are looking for those for whom this journey is consonant with the concept of “dream”. In general, that’s it.

    The Nude Latitude – Free Range Sailing Ep 31

    January 15, 2020


    – Well if the wind
    generator has got anything to say about it, it says that it’s doing
    about eight to ten knots. – [Pascale] Mm-hmm – So, we’re gonna leave. We’ve got about 300 miles to
    go and we’re gonna go across the Gulf of Carpentaria,
    and end up in Weipa. – And just like that, we
    said goodbye to the Northern Territory, and headed east
    for Weipa in Queensland. (light-hearted music) – So we’ve got our bush walking bag out. Not because we’re going bush walking, but because in here is a PLB. What’s a PLB? A PLB is a Portable Locator Beacon. Or a EPIRB, a little portable EPIRB. We’ve also got a inflating life jacket. And that’s got a built in harness to it. So what’s gonna happen
    is, anyone whenever one of us is asleep or inside
    and not out there watching, whoever’s on watch is
    going to be tied to this. They’re going to be
    clipped on to the yacht so they don’t go overboard. If they do go overboard,
    then I want an EPIRB strapped to that life jacket. All right, and if you end up in the water, and this goes off and
    you’re floating there, especially in the
    tropics, it’s a big place, you want this EPIRB right next to you and you want it going off. So I guess the first thing
    that we should do before we strap it on, give it a test. Yep. – [Pascale] Did it flash? – It works. So I’ve tested it. The batteries are good. It’s running well. It’s in date. I have just made sure that
    it’s, the batteries in date and everything’s tested. We do have a larger EPIRB for the boat, so this is our secondary one. So this is going on to the
    harness, on to the life jacket. And anyone that’s out
    there tonight, Pascale. – [Pascale] I’m safe mom, see? – As safe as she could
    be with this lunatic on the high seas. (Pascale laughing) (peaceful music) – Good morning. I’ve been on my watch
    for about three hours now and it’s been really magic. We’ve had the spinnaker
    up most of the night, all of the morning, I started my watch. We’re not going very fast. We’re going like two
    and a half, three knots. There’s barely any wind. It’d be like eight knots
    with wind or something. We’re just coasting
    along, like walking pace, crossing the gulf. The sun’s been reflecting off
    the water and onto the windows of the boat, it’s just so beautiful. And the spinnaker has this
    amazing, pinky color to it. It’s really beautiful. I just, I feel very, very
    grateful that we’re having a crossing over the gulf and
    we’re not getting flogged. We’re not going head to
    weather, we don’t have big seas, we don’t have big swells. It’s just so awesome. So, so cool. (upbeat music) – [Pascale] Good morning. – Morning, baby. (yawns) Feels like I was awake til 3:00. (Pascale laughing) Might untie that lazy
    rope just ’cause it just keeps just dangling in the sea and– – [Pascale] Oh yeah? – We’re never gonna jibe this thing. Oh good, you switched out the camera, ’cause I got no pants on. – [Pascale] Okay. (laughing) (upbeat music) It’s pretty much windless
    right now and we’re here too. Or we’re just floating, aren’t we doll? – Uh, heave too, we got the sail up. It’s pointing to the wind. – Okay, and we’re gonna go for a swim. Troy’s even going to check
    the prop and see if we need to give it a little bit of a clean. – ‘Cause I’m just a work-a-holic. – He’s a work-a-holic. And I’ll just probably
    gonna check him out good and make sure that no
    sharks sneak up on him. (laughing) – It don’t take long to get a
    shark come up off the water. Give me that scraper and
    we’ll see if it comes back. – [Pascale] Okay. Here ya go. – Usually after a bit of
    scraping on metal, any shark that’s around will come
    back up and investigate. But he’s being pretty boring. Jump on in. – [Pascale] Yep. – Put the camera down, come on. – [Pascale] Shark! There’s sharks down there, there’s lots. Holy shit. I’m gonna get the camera. – [Troy] The spear, head spear. – [Pascale] They just
    came all of a sudden. – [Troy] They love that
    scrape, scrape, scrape, eh? – [Pascale] I was like,
    they’re gone, they’re gone, they’re gone and then whoa! There’s like 20 of them. This has got, the spear’s
    got the thing on it, eh? It’s got the cap on it? Ow. A pretty ordinary occurrence
    in the Gulf of Carpentaria? Did you do this last time you were here? – Well, it’s a lot better
    if you’ve got someone to keep an eye on your back for you. – [Pascale] Because the first
    one before the school came, really like came fast at us. And then– – Well the thing is, like
    you’ll be working away, and no shark, then you
    turn around and there’s 30. – [Pascale] Yeah. They just came out of the blue. – Literally out of the blue. – [Pascale] But it’s so
    cool because I’ve never seen water that clear before. – And that many sharks. – [Pascale] Yeah, and that many sharks. It’s cool out there. – Yeah, it’s a lot of fun. It’s quite cool. If we’re in there and a big
    bully or a big tiger shark showed up, then we’d have
    to be a bit more cautious. Ya know? But those little sharks are fine. – [Pascale] How big are they,
    like five foot or something? – Five, there was a couple of
    six and a half footers there. – [Pascale] Yeah, so they were
    like my size and your size. But they seem smaller. But I guess they’re just a bit,
    they must have been further away than I thought ’cause
    the water’s so clear. – Yeah, there was some, that
    little one that came right up, he was only a four footer. – [Pascale] Yeah. – He’s only just a baby. – [Pascale] That’s why I was cocky. – They cause so much
    trouble, little sharks. – [Pascale] Yeah. – The big old ones are like,
    “Ooohh,” and they stand off, but the little ones are just like, “Oh what’s that, what’s that”‘ – [Pascale] Maybe there’s
    something like near it or that I can– – Yeah but, then they get
    in close, and then they take off, they’re all excited. And everything’s just like,
    oh what just happened? – [Pascale] What’s that? – Then the next thing you know
    all the big ones are excited. And then it just goes to hell. – [Pascale] Well, that didn’t happen. ‘Cause we just had this
    spear pointed at them. And if they came too close,
    you just stare them down and start swimming towards
    them with the spear. – Yep, look like you belong there, and look like you’re hungry. – [Pascale] How deep is it here? – 52 meters. – [Pascale] 52 meters. – I’d say you can’t, you
    can make out a bit of color on the bottom. – [Pascale] It’s pretty good visibility. I’ve never seen visibility
    like this before coming from WA. – Well, we’re going to be doing
    more of that in Queensland. And, we’ll have our
    underwater camera again. – [Pascale] Yay. – A little fun with sharks, Pascale. We’ll probably get another
    couple knots out of that. That propeller had a
    lot of barnacles on it. – [Pascale] Yeah, right. – So we’ll, and that’s why
    the sharks get excited. There’s just a nice trail
    of stuff going down. But, no we’ll do, we’ll do really well. So we’ll check that out. We’ve got the midday doldrums. I’m hoping we’ll get
    some afternoon breeze. We’ll see, ya know? – [Pascale] At least
    we’re a bit cooler now. – Yeah. – [Pascale] And the boat’s
    gonna go faster hopefully. Looks like a shark to me. – [Troy] Oh, it is. – [Troy] That would be
    a tiger, a little tiger. – It’s big, isn’t it? – [Troy] Pascy got a marlin. Oh no, what are we gonna do? (laughing) – Oh it’s hooked in there. That’s where it gets hooked, is it? – [Troy] No wonder it
    ran like fucking crazy. – Oh my god, I caught a marlin. – [Troy] Keep pulling it up. Pull it up. Oh, that’s not a marlin, it’s a sailfish. – A sailfish. – [Troy] It didn’t take
    to the air, though did it? – No. – [Troy] All right,
    we’re gonna have to try and release this. – Yeah. What’s that sticking out of it’s gill? Yeah, it’s recording now. Goodbye sailfish. Wow. – [Troy] So what do you
    think about that, Pascy? – First sailfish. – We’d actually prefer a
    mackerel, that’s the sort of fisherman we are. – Or tuna. – [Troy] And naked fishing
    seems to be working out. – Yes. Just a general naked gulf crossing, it is. – [Troy] It is, isn’t it? Same kind of weather. Well, I’ve been out-fished
    by Pascale, yet again. So there ya go. Good work. Here we’ve got Pascale. She’s nicked the dish washing
    detergent because if you didn’t know, it lathers in salt water. – Yep, and it gets rid of all that grease. – [Troy] So what’s gonna happen is, first after the first clean with salt water and then we’ve got a bit
    of fresh there, Pascale. – Yep, we have the water maker
    running during the morning ’cause we’ve had the, we’ve
    had to motor ’cause there’s no wind in the gulf at the moment. – [Troy] Yeah, oh well,
    there’s always swings and roundabouts, isn’t there? – It’s an added benefit. Get to have a fresh water wash. – [Troy] I think that’s
    second round with that morning fresh that would later a lot more. – K, so rinse it out
    and morning fresh again? Oh hello. – [Troy] So this second round looks a lot more successful, Pascale. – Yeah, I think we’re, I
    think we got rid of that first sorta grease and this is better. After this one I can give
    my hair a fresh water rinse and then use normal shampoo. – [Troy] Yes. – I’m gonna smell delicious. – [Troy] You are gonna
    smell absolutely fantastic, unlike me. – This is one of the reasons
    why we go to water bay here on real. So I can wash my hair. – [Troy] Spoiled she is. So I’ve got the old cut off bottle. When sailing, you come to
    appreciate the little things. – And it’s good to remove
    all the hair out of the cockpit so it doesn’t
    end up inside the boat. – [Troy] That’s how we
    celebrate catching sailfish around here. – Hair washing. It’s awesome that we caught that sailfish. That was cool, but we really want food. We’re gonna make urad dal this afternoon ’cause we’ve run out of meat. – [Troy] Yeah, we’ve just ate the last of the fish just then. Not too many mackerel around here. There’s no structure so
    we’re just hoping for a tuna. A tuna would be good. Not a sailfish, not a marlin. No game fish. – [Pascale] Is it a tuna? It’s a tuna? – Tuna. – [Pascale] Oh yes. That is great news. It’s a shami for dinner. As long as a shark doesn’t come. – Yeah, just pull it out of the – [Pascale] Yeah. – It’s not a bad fish. – [Pascale] What is it? – When you do get a tuna on
    board, no matter what you do, quite a bit of blood comes out of it. They’re a fast moving fish
    they need a lot of oxygen into their tissues. They’ve got a very high blood volume. You want to get that out. I put the gap into it. A lot of blood just
    streamed out of that tuna. So I’ve obviously hit something hard. Normally when you open up
    this side, and in there, an enormous amount of blood
    will come out that tuna really, really quickly. You want to cut down through
    the membrane that joins to the gill there. K, so we’ve cut there. This line here behind
    the fin, a shallow cut. It only needs to be less than
    an inch deep though there on both sides and a slice at the tail. Then you can omit this one. But that one is very important, and cutting on the throat as well. When I brought the fish on
    board, I scraped it’s head. And there you can actually
    see a larger white patch. That’s where the brain is. Right through there. Most fish you can’t scrape it and see it. But with tuna you can. So that will give you an
    instant kill on the tuna. And that means the fish
    is not suffering any more than it has to. If you’ve never seen a tuna before, these things rely on really high speed. And they are voracious. So this fish wanted to eat that lure. It’s a halco laser pro, and
    it’s in that color scheme for it to be interested. That seems to work in the
    gulf, doesn’ it, Pascy? Catches sailfish and tuna. – [Pascale] Sailfish and tuna. – Really large eye, okay. So they’re a sight predator. This fish, when it decided that it was
    gonna take this other thing on, there’s no cutting teeth in here. Tuna just have grabbing teeth. Oh, that’s what they’re eating. – [Pascale] Sardines. – Mmm, they look a little
    bit like little miniature trevally sort of things. – [Pascale] Oh yeah. – They’re not sardines. – [Pascale] Okay. – I’m not sure what they are. So that’s what that fish has been eating. But it decided that, that
    would do just as well. So no teeth in there. That was gonna swallow that whole. Because they rely on
    speed, if you look here, built into the fish is a
    perfect recess that the fin can go down into leaving
    that perfectly smooth. Likewise, these little
    ventral fins, they also fit down into their very own, there’s a little groove in there. So when the fish puts them
    away, they are perfectly smooth and tucked away also. And here, you can’t see it
    at the moment because there’s a groove here, but if we look. – [Pascale] Look at that. – That just slots down perfectly into an actual slot in the body. That is gone. These fins are fixed. But then you have these
    other little fins that can just adjust side to side. Just like that. And the speeds that these
    fish swim at, that is enough for precision control. So when they swim, they
    stop and they’ll glide. They’ll swim up and then down. Up and then down. So during their glide
    pattern, they can make minute adjustments with this as
    well as sticking that out. And look, the angle gives
    it lift like an aero foil. So these things are amazing. They’re delicious, but they’re amazing. So, long tail tuna. Before I process this tuna
    or really any bloody fish, I’ve got this scabby old deck broom. I do like to just clean up as much
    of the slime as I can. And then I’ll clean this and give it a bit of a bleaching afterwards. That will make handling the
    fish a lot easier for you if you do have a bit of
    a scrubbing brush there. ‘Cause all fish have a top of slime which is anti-bacterial, anti-biological. Stops them, it’s their
    antiviral, if you like. It also helps them slip through the water. It’s their first line of defense. Reef fish have it thicker than these ones. But all fish have it. So that is kind of handy
    to give them a wash down. I think Pascale, that this
    is going to be delicious and very welcome. – [Pascale] Yes, definitely. – So that’s us for fishing now. I think this should be
    enough fish to see us through to Weipa. We’ve only got another
    day and a half, I guess. – No time to stop around here. – [Pascale] It’s just a
    little bit hot right now. – It’s gotta be 100% humidity. – [Pascale] You just walk
    around and you’re like dripping with sweat. – Not even a breath of a breeze. – [Pascale] April, April weather. – Unreal. This is what used to kill
    the old mariners though, get stuck in the doldrums, for weeks, throw the horses overboard. Like there’s only me and Pascale, I can’t throw her overboard. (light-hearted music) – We find that long tail tuna
    is at it’s best after it’s rested in the fridge
    for at least 12 hours. (light-hearted music) What’s that noise? – That’s the noise of silence. – [Pascale] Such a relief. Three knots, we are. – Three knots. This is where that wind
    vane modification paid off. ‘Cause there’s no way a
    wind vane would operate now. I can only just feel the breeze. Oh, that’s a nice little breeze there. – [Pascale] I can feel that. – Probably picked up to
    three and a half, eh? Yep, bingo, ba-da-bing. – Ba-da-bing. – [Pascale] Spinnaker is
    getting a pink color again ’cause it’s sunset. – We just wanna keep our
    fingers crossed that this isn’t just the– – [Pascale] The sunset
    breeze, the sea breeze. – We’re a bit far out for
    this to be a true sea breeze. But yeah, as the sun falls
    we get that shift each day. And we can’t guess when
    we sail through the night. We should be getting wind
    now at the end of Wednesday. There’s supposed to be
    lower winds, not no winds. Supposed to be picking itself up now. And then over the next few
    days, an easterly shift. So we should just slip into where we’re just in the nick of time. – It’s our fourth day and the motor’s on here, there’s no wind. I guess we’ve got tuna in the fridge, I might eat sushi for breakfast. – In the sushi rolls
    there’s tuna, mayonnaise, wasabi, and a sprinkling of sesame seeds, and of course sushi rice mixed with vinegar and sugar to give it a delicious flavor. (upbeat music) – I just wanted to increase to about eight knots and just go a little more to the north and then we can use it. We haven’t had any wind. We sailed out into a doldrum, didn’t we? It’s like a great big heady of nothing. I just want to go sailing. – [Pascale] It’s not much to ask. – It’s not, I hate motoring. Maybe if I loved motoring
    more we’d get more sailing. I’ll try that. – [Pascale] Love this. – Boy I sure do love motoring. – [Pascale] You got your wind. – Tropical sailing. Zero to 20 knots, in 15 seconds. – [Pascale] Quickly put a reef in. – Hogged a reef in. Our baggy wrinkle. They chafe, the protection on the stays that people keep asking about. They’re working really well. We’re keeping the battens off the stays so they won’t erode our sails. I had to change the sensitivity
    of the order, I call it. So it will handle it a bit better now. We’re back at with it. What are we doing? Five and a half knots now so that’s getting into Weipa at 2:00. – [Pascale] Nice. – Well, we’ll see. This wind is associated with
    all of this weather ahead. – [Pascale] Storm system, yeah. But it was the north
    westers we were hoping for. Or not, is is more of a– – It’s a straight northerly. – [Pascale] Northerly, right. – Bit of a localized low-pressure
    system just over there. Winds, whew, coming in. It’s all good. (upbeat music) – We just pease this a little. A little catch of the wind on the side. – [Pascale] The steering working? – The steering’s working. But, what happens with
    an electronic auto pilot it averages all of the
    corrections either way and then slowly reduces the
    air out until it’s steering. So in a very rudimentary sense, it learns. So when you’re doing something
    like this, as soon as you make a bit of a change,
    the balance of the boat the autopilot goes, what so it has to relearn again. See how it’s settled in now? – [Pascale] Yeah. – So yeah, basically
    that’s what it’s doing. In it’s little basic brain. It’s adding up all of the corrections taking the average and trying to find that medium path. (upbeat music) – Well is often the case
    with sailing in the tropics, things change fast. That sprang upon us pretty quickly. And it was a whole lot
    of fun surfing before it. But now that wind is shifting
    and it’s gone to the north. So it’s directly in beam of us. So we’ve had to pack all that away. I guess we ran with it
    for about 45 minutes, almost an hour. But now it’s just straight as a beam. So we’re just doing a beam run into Weipa. And it looks like we’ve only
    got about two hours to go. That’s to the outside of the leads, because Weipa’s a pretty major port. So there is shipping
    leads to go through there. We’re not actually gonna get
    to an anchorage in two hours it’s still a bit of time to
    go, they’re very long leads. But that’s a great opportunity
    to catch some more fish just before we go on land. Okay, some of this
    greenish cast in the water visibility is down a bit here. So actually we’ve put the
    lure in about three quarters of a boat length. Just a bit over eight meters out the back. A lot of the yachties
    that I see are fishing and they have poor results. One of the things is I put
    it down to is they’ve got it so far away from the boat, they think the fish
    are scared of the boat. That is not the case. If you’re sailing particularly. Aahhh! If you’re sailing in particular
    with no motor running, fish will come up and check it out. If you ever see whales, or
    whale sharks, or something big in the water, they’re
    usually surrounded by fish. If you are trolling out
    there and you’d like to experiment a bit, try getting that lure a
    bit closer to the boat. ‘Cause trust me, fish will see
    a dark shadow and they’ll go, “what’s that?” Go and have a look, “Oh
    yeah, it’s just a whatever, whether they’re interested or not. But then your lure will
    come immediately after and they’ll get that thing. One of my commercial mates
    Mackerel, he was always two meters down, eight meters back. That was his sort of thing. Everyone’s a bit different. But he was relatively successful. – [Pascale] Saw a wave. – We’re pretty successful. – I don’t think we go
    too many miles without getting something, Pascale. (music drowns out speaker) – [Pascale] No. – [Pascale] Whilst we didn’t
    get the mackerel we were hoping for, we were pretty
    excited to get this beautiful skip jack tuna. You can see this tuna is really red. – [Pascale] Yeah. – That is really, really red tuna. A lot of people don’t like this but, when it’s cooked, it’ll be
    quite firm and it’ll go pale, like chicken. Pollo del mar. We’ll give it a go. I’ve got all the blood out of it. We’ll have a go. It’s still quite warm. But once it’s chilled, I don’t
    know, it might be acceptable. We’ll see what we got, Pascy. – [Pascale] Challenge? Fish tiny gullet. Can’t even filet a tuna when you’re doing seven
    knots across the sea. – [Pascale] That’s why I’m filming. I’m in awe. (light-hearted music) It was amazing to see ships
    after having spent four days in the gulf not seeing a single boat. Arriving at the leads in Weipa
    we had to be very careful because there wasn’t much
    distance between the shoreline and the lead marker. And there was a large
    ship exiting the port. (upbeat music) I’m always amazed at how
    impressively big those ships are up close. (upbeat music) Well, we’ve made it to Weipa. This is my first time in Queensland. – [Troy] First stop in Queensland. – My first stop in Queensland. So we’re here. It’s steamy and cloudy. But we had some great wind
    coming in which you would have seen so that was awesome. – And you’re first fish in
    Queensland waters was a sailfish. – Yep, pretty epic. So we’re gonna put the anchor down soon. We can see anchorage just ahead. There’s a few yachts there
    and a few fishing boats. So it looks good. And I know this is a ramble but anyway. I can’t remember what I was gonna say. We’re definitely gonna sleep
    well tonight, aren’t we doll? – There’s some good coconuts there. – We need a new a pair of binos. It’s busted, look. We have to look through one hole. – That’s okay. – Give ’em some money on
    Paypal so we can get a new pair of binoculars, please. – The poor man’s sexton. I’m taking land shots. – We’re doing sightings with busted binos. We need your help, please. Well folks, I hope you
    enjoyed the crossing. I’m gonna stop rambling now. And, we’ll see you in Weipa. If you enjoyed this video,
