Somehow, I found an entire new way to waste time but it is therapeutic. A bunch of millenials, the cap'n once upon a time from Microsoft, bought a 53' bloboat and sailed to Mexico. Then left for points west for 6 more years.

They get rotating crews from all over and just have a helluva life from port to port, living deliberately.

The vids get better as time goes on-maybe it was the naked equatorial crossing ceremony that captured 3 million+ views. Enjoy.

When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down "happy." They told me I didnít understand the assignment, and I told them they didnít understand life. ~John Lennon

Wow, I'm amazed that it's been over a year with this sailing troupe.

Some interesting stats-SV Delos is the #1 blog/vlog with new Friday shows of hem circumnavigating. It's estimated that 'Patreons' around the globe donate $330k annually which keeps them going non-stop now for 8-9 years. There are dozens that have followed in kind and others bring in very little to $240k annually.

It sure is great escapism and their vids have become PBS worthy. They've turned down offers for reality TV as they want to maintain control of their lives.

I think it was the topless young women jumping into the depths that vaulted them to no 1 on youtube sailing vids:
