Well they are better sailors than I will ever hope to be if they can still keep their minds on maximizing publicity angles and market timing whilst beating into the wind in the Atlantic... and I do that sh*t for a living...

Im sure we're just rediculous l'y mind reading and over zealously reading between the lines.

But if you look back a million posts I said I'm the captain of my boat. Riley and Elayna are 2 against 3.
Its one of the reasons why the 2 I took on as crew for that passage were novice sailors. I don't need someone second guessing my stuff. Nor will I (you'll find this interesting) go to sea where I could be phisically overpowered by the crew. Think that one through!

As I said, we're mind reading and trying to pluck BS from something that's not there.

The most likely reason is that each have their own publicity angles and each post for their market/timing/philosophy etc.

You'll sing a different tune when the boat arrives in Europe with only three aboard and I'm not saying which three. The Aussie cinema is full of such stories of the sea. We might as well speculate a good yarn.

Seriously, I like to know how they are handling the watches. How Lenny and Elyana are doing. Even how the boat is holding up in the conditions. I guess we will have to wait for the You Tube videos to be edited to find out. In the meantime we will have to rely on Nikki's reports that all is well in the meantime.

Don't denigrate yourself!

a) sailing isn't that difficult
b) one learns much more, much faster as the owner/skipper. Has Nikki been a skipper, or and owner? Or both? Riley has sailed half the world as both owner and skipper.
c) You're in the industry, then you've seen star-lust surmount all.
d) Ive had 30 years in that industry too.
e) I know Riley and Elayna and I thought Elayna is employable in any/every TV station I know. This rough diamond, down home, rough as guts girl could be the Steve Irwin of any modern network. Everyone is waiting for the next Steve Irwin. She is it. But she has a steely edge to her. She wants and can achieve.
Don't tell me that these 3 factions on this boat don't have the savvy to manipulate the/their media they way they want: 1 has spoken in front of the UN, the other has the highest grossing sailing video in the world. You're dealing with two of the best manipulators in their own fields... put together in a Big Brother floating household for 3 stormy weeks... the 3rd is the Wild Card, a young woman who appears to have experience, but never as an owner or skipper.

Any anyone wonders why we are talking incessantly about it?????????????????????

Re: Sailing La Vegabond

More spec..
If they can not catch a break, maybe will land horta or madeira to check over the boat
Weather could be such that they do stay south and shoot the strait
Sounds like theyve had some lay down to pee conditions

Movie Trailer... slow, deep, Hollywood Voice Over: "7 people on a voyage of a lifetime! The teen vegan environmentalist; the dope smoking hippy; and, the Amazonian bare-breasted wench. Only 3 make it ashore. The witness can't speak. One clearly insane... and 1... with a smile. Maybe the angry planet chewed them up?, or, maybe it was something much, much more sinister."

Re: Sailing La Vegabond

As Mark pointed out Riley and Eylana have the La Vagabonde Media empire operating smoothly even as they are getting bounced around in the middle of the Atlantic. The video of their Annapolis Boat show appearance has just been posted.

Rough seas during the night with probably 50 knot gusts. We busted the furling line and made a quick fix but will re-run something when the seas calm. Fortunately we donít need much sail out at the moment anyway.
These things will happen out here, what has given everyone onboard a lot of confidence is how well La Vaga handled in those conditions. Nothing quite like hand steering in 50+. Wonder and awe.
Riley's latest Instagram post. Things are starting to break...

Nikki Henderson was brought along because she is an actual expert at sailing. At this point, having jumped into a voyage in the teeth of the storm, I could understand why she wouldn't be mentioning the skipper and his ill-fated decision making. Just wondering why she signed up for this... she had to be taking a close look at the weather before they set sail.

Greta, otoh, should be mentioning her hosts, who hazarded their boat in hopes of latching onto her star power (not that they were doing too bad already, but here is a chance to sign up another 60k viewers). But then, she is only 12yo, so her not doing so is understandable. Linking the instagram accounts of the S/V Vagabond owners probably gave them everything they wanted.
