How did I end up here? Random coincidence or destiny? By Karin

There are several choices that have created shifts in my life and a few that stand out above the rest.  Moving to London one week after graduating high school to work and live away from home for the first time in my life, and deciding to move to the other side of the world for…

Downwind Sailing!- By Brian

It seems like the universal Karmic scales have balanced for Delos, giving back in spirit what was taken from us last season.  Last year on this very same stretch of water Delos and crew were weary and tired from beating, beating, and  more beating while being lashed by squalls as we worked our way south…

We’ve Gone Social!

Apparently there’s this thing out there called The Facebook and it seems to be catching on.  We’ve given into social anti-social pressure and created a new position called “Social Media Deck Hand” AKA JosjeRama.   In a bout of sheer nerdiness we tested our new solar panel by seeing how many laptops we could run at…

Cutting The Cord- By Brian

Getting off the dock is the first step and sometimes you just have to unhook that umbilical cord that delivers unlimited power and water and just do it.  Just get off the dock and see what happens. The last week has been chock full of fix-it boat projects.  It’s just amazing how much you can…

Delos where have you gone? by Brian

Wow, if you asked me where I’d be living 4 years ago I’d never, ever have guessed Melbourne (pronounced Melbin’).  But yet here I am living on the South coast in the Land Down Under.  I’m only 300 miles from Tasmania!  Life’s strange like that. After leaving the tropical paradise of Hamilton Island and the…

It’s Good To Be Home

When we pulled Delos into the Bundaberg Port Marina last February there was a lot of uncertainty in my life. I honestly had no idea if this would be our last adventure together, or if by some lucky stroke of the stars I’d be allowed to continue on. Since then I’ve lived and worked on…

Back in Bundy! By Brady

I have been back on Delos for 12 days now.  It truly feels like I never left.   Its hard to believe that the last time I was here was over a year ago.   Whats really hard to believe is that I spent 8 of those months as a burrito technician, living in a big city…

Moonshiners! By Brian

Don’t get me wrong, we’re not absolute lushes but Delos does enjoy our daily sundowner, or two, or three…  We were provisioning in Cairns to take us to Darwin, a trip of about a month in length and did the calculation. Alcohol here in Australia is stupidly expensive.  Seriously, a bottle of local rum will set…

Kuranda Village in the Rainforest Queensland Australia

I visited the Kuranda Visitor Information Centre  on the way to the Atherton Tablelands/Cairns Highlands and the Savannah Way. It feels like the real thing , wait till you see the bird! While I was looking at the waterfall I glanced and saw an old steam train pulling out of the station…Enjoy !

Red Bull Races on the Swan river in Perth

It was one of those afternoons when Tony said to me ” If you’ve not got much on I’ve been invited to see the Red Bull flying team racing!” Well I had nothing on and so we went to the 24th floor of the Hilton where convienently some one had laid on champagne and smoked…
