Sailing La Vegabond
 
I see our YouTube friends have a noteworthy passenger for a late season trip across the pond:

(I think there is an 'e' at the end of Vegabond)

Do we know their route? Isn't this a pretty sketch time of year to make that crossing?

Are the You-Tubers mostly fair weather sailors or are they really capable of a wintertime crossing of the North Atlantic? It's certainly not a voyage I'd undertake lightly. The the Gulfstream in the roaring 40s in the dead of winter????

Hmmmm I dunno about this crew, vessel and crossing from that location at this time of year. This could be interesting. It's not the "green" boat she came across on. hmmmmmm

They've wrangled themselves a world class ocean sailor for the trip, so they're more crew at this point maybe.
