Sailing La Vagabonde is creating an adventurous voyage around the globe

Hello world!

We are an Australian couple who met in Europe over 4 years ago now. Riley had bought a yacht, having no clue of how to sail and met myself in the Greek Islands while I was playing music for the summer. He asked me to set sail with him on his 43.4ft Beneteau Cyclades 'La Vagabonde'. I didn't tell mum at first, but I said yes. It has been quite the adventure "learning the ropes" and the wild but beautiful ways of the ocean... we are forever learning new things. We have sailed over 60,000 nautical miles together now!

In the beginning, I started making 'home made' style vlogs for friends and family back home to see what we we're up to. Suddenly we had quickly gained views and followers from all over the world who wanted to watch and come along for the ride. Recently this media hype we have had, has all lead us to striking a great deal for a new catamaran in France to continue our adventure around the globe. This new home will allow us to be able to work more comfortably out at sea and to continue to sail around the world much more safely (now you can relax a little more mumma bear). We have big exciting plans for the future!

We want to keep our production OURS and by becoming a Patron and supporting each episode we make, this allows us to do so. Because of Patreon we have been able to say no to many large companies and sponsorship deals we didn't feel suited us nor did we want to support. Sailing is also a very expensive hobby and there's no way we could continue the adventure without help from you guys. Our patrons are like our family. They are a part of something very special and we can't wait to see where it takes us all! We feel very blessed to be surrounded by such a lovely bunch of people. THANK YOU!

Love Elayna & Riley.

You are all, a seriously AWESOME bunch of humans! Thanks for getting behind us and keeping us afloat.

As well as everything above....

• We will send out a Sailing La Vagabonde (SLV) sticker.

• Your questions will be moved to the top of the queue in the monthly LIVE video


You guys help us in the process of posting movies. Whilst we are sitting in a hot sweaty cafe, somewhere where we have found civilisation, uploading the video and slowly watching the "percentage complete" of the crawl over the 30% mark we will have time to really consider how you guys are helping us.

All donations go towards better equipment (we tend to do in the odd drone!) so we can continue to improve the quality of our videos. 

If you watch our first few videos and our most recent, you will see the difference we're referring to and that's all because of our amazing patrons.

$10 or more per video episode
For your 10 squid and on top of everything above, you shall receive:


• 1 x SLV Essential Sail Guide (make sure to follow along with the videos!!!)

• 2 x Beer Can Coolers plus

• 2 x Sailing La Vagabonde (SLV) coasters.

(minimum two months)


Woohoo thank you guys so much for the support! We love sharing this adventure with you all, and the challenge of producing weekly videos during a storm, at night, lost, pregnant, with a dozen velociraptors tearing at our sails. (The winged ones. If I'd of known the correct spelling for Pterodactyl I would obviously have used that instead)

$25
$25 or more per video episode
Our Premium Package, for this one, we're really stocking you up:


• An OFFICIAL PATRON squad fam legend card. 

• SLV Essential Sailing Guide with 6 accompanying videos.

• Your questions will be moved to the top of the cue during the monthly LIVE broadcast for Patrons.

• 1 x SLV sticker

• 2 x Beer Can Coolers

• 2 x Sailing La Vagabonde (SLV) coasters.

• 1 x Sailing La Vagabonde T-Shirt (Size: Large unless you let us know otherwise)

• 1x Signed Postcard written with love from Elayna and Riley. Probably bubs will have dribbled on it a little. :)



The "squad fam legend card" is made from recycled plastic and is similar to a credit card in size and shape but different in that if it is used incorrectly we won't take your house from you. This grants you a tour of La Vagabonde in person!!! We usually do this anyway so lets make it official. When we come across you please produce your card for a free tour of our floating home, some wine and maybe something to eat. 


(minimum two months)

Look what we have in store for you on top of the lower tiers.

This is a very serious donation and we will treat it as such. No one here is smiling. It is a spiritual moment. As the wood is oiled, chips in fiber-glass epoxied and decks scrubbed with new brushes you can hear La Vagabonde breath a sigh of relief, she thanks you. From the bottom of her barnacle covered hull. You are honestly keeping us afloat. This is important.

You are insane. You are completely bonkers. You know that laughing in the background of some of Pink Floyds stuff in the album where the guys on fire on the cover? Thats how looney you are. You are a cross between Yossarian and Randle McMurphy.
We love you though, you crazy son of a gun on (obviously on top of everything above) we would like to thank you or your family business personally at the end of the episode for the duration of your pledge.
Goals
43% complete
We are currently in discussions with Buzz Aldrin, Mikhale Korniyenko and NASA, the specific gravity, trajectory optimisation and escape velocity of La Vagabonde has been discussed, agreed upon and finalised. We just need a little finance for rocket fuel, space helmets (we already have the suits) oxygen, more rods and lures, space food etc. The rest should be easy.
:A minimum specific gravitational potential energy needs to be overcome: for the Kármán line this is approximately 1 MJ/kg. W=mgh, m=1 kg, g=9.82 m/s2, h=105m. W=1*9.82*105≈106J/kg=1MJ/kg (*copied and pasted directly from wikipedia)
Up up and away.
