ABOUT US: We are a family of five sailing around the world on our "dream boat," a performance catamaran named "Archer."
Ten years ago, before kids, we sailed a Lagoon 380 named "Honeymoon" halfway around the world to Sydney, Australia. Along the way we shared our experiences with family and friends via FRvid, and by happenstance created one of the earliest sailing channels still posting. We also realized what an incredible experience we were having and that someday we wanted to do it again, only this time with our kids.
OUR BOAT is a Ferrari red Outremer 51 performance cruising catamaran. We chose this boat as it has been specifically designed for the purpose of blue-water sailing. It was designed and built to withstand the stress of "sailing multiple times around the world safely and in comfort." And yes, she's nice on the eyes too.
OUR ROUTE has taken us from the Boston/Cape Cod area of the United States down to the Caribbean and then through the Panama Canal. At the time of posting this we have dealt with the Coronavirus lock down in New Zealand and are now cruising again in Australia.
PLEASE COMMENT!: As a "family channel," we are required to actively monitor all comments, but we still want to hear from you. Tell us what you think!
THANKS for watching all. Subscribe now and never miss an episode!

Lice eggs (Nits) are sticky, dandruff is flaky. Louse are not that dark. Real Sea lice are marine ectoparasites and are nothing like what you have. When people speak about getting bit by sea lice it is really Jelly Fish larvae and they are getting stung not bit. A Cell Phone make a great magnifying glass. To look at your insect, open your camera, set to the highest zoom and focus on the insect. It is much easier to do research on the insect once you have a good view of it.

Man, you guys are flying! Do you have a pilots license? Ha. I hit near 200 mile days on my mono, Cal 2-46. But that was isolated and rare. You guys are doing it every day! Sorry about the radar. I sailed a decade or so with no radar or chart plotter. Heck, no gps. Had to use a sextant. That being said, today I will be the first not to want to give up any of these. I bought one of the first GPS units ever at a boat show. Special price for a box that gave you two numbers and not all day either. We got a bargain price of $2600 for this black box. Would be more like $5K today. And now you can buy one for under a hundred! Oh! And I love this conversation. ‘See kids, we are now further from land than anywhere else on earth! ‘. ‘Is that our laser? That’s our laser!’ Ha ha. I love kids! You guys are doing great. And fast!

Try plenty of undiluted hair conditioner onto dry hair and massage into scalp,put a plastic bag over the hair like a shower cap this will stop the conditioner dripping down the face,leave it on for a half hour or longer and the lice will be smothered,rinse off and all will be good Cheers

I know this is way late, but the handles are not right, the bar that connects across to prevent accidental opening is not set correctly. @5:46 you can see the 8 o'clock handle is supposed to be up in the slot in the bar. so that one is loose potentially causing a twist in the hatch.

So,....im not a sailor, wish i was, but re ropes chafing. couldnt you just make up some socks to put over the areas where it rubs?? Re the hatch leaks, exactly what i would of done. Seal it, with silicon or black window silastic, suction till set. Here on land i always keep conveyor rubber sheets, really useful for so much stuff. Ie non slip mats etc etc. And its easy to store ie use it as a floor mat till you need it. I actually keep a whole heap in my car as a trunk liner, if it hails i grab it out and cover the car/ solar panels. Itd probably be a pretty effective seal for that hatch too. Just cut with a knife, slip it in the hole and seal with silicon. You could also use it to make a one way flapper valve on the drain. Ie if a wave forces it up it flaps shut against the grating and seals. But again not a sailor. Love the videos!

You keep repeating "the farthest spot on the planet from land". That spot is called "Point Nemo" (yes, feel free to ask wikipedia). The coordinates for that point are S48° 52′ 32″ , W123° 23′ 33″ O. As you are S 6° 16' W115°31 when you cross your halfway line, the point Nemo is way further south than your location half way between the Galapagos and the Marquesas. It is about 2500 n.m. from your location, SSW. (it is somewhere between Chile and New Zealand). So I understand you are trying to raise the drama effect to increase the buzz of your videos, but every time you state that, you sound like Donald Trump. Don't be a Trump. ;)

The Sailing Family
The Sailing Family Il y a mois
The Watt and Sea hydrogenerator is fantastic. We have learned the racing version is better on boats that surf (as we can break the slower propeller when we surf), but once we hit ten knots it pumps in the power. We sail all night and it keeps us charged and we don’t need a generator. Huge win!

Just like the cruise ships, we dump our grey water in the open ocean. There is no alternative, and at that interval it is not bad for the environment. It’s near shore that it becomes an issue. Good question!

You had everything you needed to kill the lice onboard. Diesel fuel motor oil cooking oil. They may like dirty hair but they can't breathe in oil. Let it sit for 20 minutes and wash it out.

A thick deep conditioner placed on the hair and left for a minimum of an hour (I left it on for 8 hours) and then comb out the nits (eggs)! My 3 year old with thin curly long hair has had them 3 times! We had a nurse who is a professional lice remover give us the conditioner tip after the 2nd infestation and it worked like a charm! Bonus was soft healthy hair! We used Aussie 3 minute miracle!

I’m no sailor but just from watching other cruiser channels I’m wondering if your sails equipment is breaking down because of how fast your going? I never see the other catamaran boats going as fast as your going. Just an observation. Thanks for sharing.
Adan Martinez

@The Sailing Family Hi again. Have to retract my observation. Just saw Keith’s video over at Sailing Zatara and he just so happen to be making a video comparing both of your boats! I didn’t realize their were different classes of catamarans. He says yours is a performance Cat and his would be considered an expedition Cat. That explains why you were going so much faster! Thanks again for sharing.

The Sailing Family

I don’t agree that all are the same, but I do agree that all French boats with the CE mandates emergency hatches made by Goiet are a serious safety risk. Sometimes the boats are great, but it’s the equipment installed that’s poor.

LICE...... mayonaise mixed with vinegar, is a natural fix. Mix together and use it like shampoo comb through the hair with a very fine comb. then wash out. Do this 3 times in 3 day intervals.
Geezergamers
Geezergamers Il y a mois
Lice can be treated at sea with oil. Olive oil or other skin safe oils are fine. Wash the hair, dry it, coat with oil liberally. Let it set for an hour then comb it out with the finest tooth comb you have. You can repeat this daily for 3 or more days watching for any skin reaction. Bedding, caps, pillows will all need to be washed as well. I am sure you're all probably experts of these critters now.

Simple green cleaner, 10 percent in water. Spray on anything. Apply green directly on yourself full strength. Usually on lower legs and feet. Worked every time. Spray on sheets and bedding. On couches and chairs, let dry, all set. We had outside cats who would bring fleas in the hose. Green worked great

Very impressed with your MacGyver hatch solution, but I can’t stop thinking if there was a better way if dealing with that leak. Would you do the GoPro trick again or do you think there’s a better solution now that some time has passed?
The Sailing Family
The Sailing Family Il y a mois
That’s a good question. Given how successful the suction cup was at helping seal the gasket we would do that again, but if it got worse we would drill a small hole in it and pull a line through with a knot on the outside. That would really let us pull it tight, but obviously add a leak point. All that matters though is that you don’t lose the hatch. That’s how these boats sink (happened to a cruiser off Africa recently). Very sad.
