Everything I loved about Sailing is gone 😭 Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 309
Rough seas and caring for Sierra have taken their toll on Kazza, and we realize just how tough this lifestyle has become. Northerly winds are brewing and we're making good miles south down the coast of New England. We take some time to reflect how much sailing with a baby has changed our experience on the ocean. I'm basically a single handed sailor, and Kazza is a single parent when we're at sea. After a rough day we finally pull into Cape May, NJ for some much needed rest before carrying on through Delaware Bay, the C&D Canal, and finally into the the Chesapeake Bay.
Thank you for all the support and if your new here please subscribe it helps us out A LOT! Much love! Kazza, Brian and little Sierra

    My two cents piece of advice for such a long passage is for the two of you switch roles. Kazza can handle the boat, maybe Brian can handle the nugget two days a week? Just to break the monotony?

    I hate to put my comment , it will be ugly. You are not ready to be married and have a kid. You took this opportunity like sailing, having fun, sex .. I am married since 1987 and still happy without camera and internet. You are so depressed. There is way you can survive. Your face changed from happy to hmmmm.

    I don’t understand the thought pattern in having a baby and living in such a precarious situation. Time to think about the safety and well-being of your child. You are obviously very good at what you do but it only takes a piece of debris to end all you care about, a fall or high fever with no hospital/medical help. Your life in your hands fair enough, but a baby?? I don’t mean to be disrespectful but I watched one of your videos today where you took your boat out for a shake down in crazy conditions with your baby onboard,,, enough said..

  • OneForTheRoad

    What you are doing is so difficult that I feel humbled with how inconvienced I get in my life. Parenting is hard on dry land with support around you. But you are forcing yourselves to work as a team while becoming stronger as individuals. I hope it bears the fruit of knowing how much you can truly count on each other as well as stretching your limits of creativity and adaptability.

    I love how all these people who’ve (almost certainly) only ever lived on land, are lecturing these dedicated world travelers on life with children. Yes, everything changes when you have kids, but let’s not be condescending. During those tough days when you were pulling your hair out chasing around young kids, would you really have wanted to teleport into an existence where you’re living on a postage stamp literally in the middle of nowhere, with no access to anything so much as a grocery store? No ability to bathe, with seasickness being yet another reason for your toddler to be miserable on top of all the other reasons toddlers have to be miserable? At least 99% of people would not willingly choose that option. Just because you’ve had kids doesn’t mean you have any idea what these people are going through.

    I mean I could do this for awhile but if anyone thinks spending there entire rest of there life on a boat is a good idea there crazy trying to raise a child on a boat like heck no its not ideal even for the child especially once the kid get older for schooling and making friends amd just being a normal child!! I think yall should get a house live inland and go out during sailing season but living on a boat like that heck no its just not ideal!! I just cant imagine living on a boat my entire life like that, it would be fun while u r young but once the older years start as an adult and start making a family... It just wouldn't be that great also its gotta be both of ur dreams not just his or hers and children its gotta be everyones choice, idk I just couldn't even imagine raising a family on a small boat!!

    You don't have to give up your whole lifestyle. It's more expensive, but you can dock at a marina and live there for 9 months out of the year and sail for 3. Define your own way to "settle down."

    You guys have done a wonderful job , as parents , sailors , inspiring and teaching so many along the way kudos to you and thanks for sharing all the knowledge and all the beautiful videos ❤️ , it's not negative or bad to take a break from anything , often we are made to fit into a label and are considered to do it all our lives but even things that once made us happy sometimes become a task , it's completely natural even for the most beautiful place to sometime feel bleak and there is no shame in taking a break , from anything life needs change and different experiences , so please don't feel bad but more happy about a change and to get to experience something else. We are here to have as many experiences as possible and youve taken sailing to another level ❤️ much love and respect for that and thank you for everything 🙏 . Be kind to yourselfs we all will always be here ;)

If you have a video with more details about it please write a link, thank you and fair winds!

    Don't worry:) It is just sometimes hard. To switch from the whole world to a world which is 30 x 4 meters, is a giant step. But it is her whole world to discover. And she's lucky to have you around 24/7! She is learning fast! How many kids her age knows where to put a headlamp? She does! :) Because you do:) The age between carrying your kid around everywhere and a just a bit less continue attention is a hard. But it will pass, and new things wil come.

    It will get better when she gets older and can lend a hand on the boat. I watch another channel as well called Sailing Zatarra that has older kids and while it's not a "Party" boat they have fun and do stuff as a family.

  • Lisa Kay Lindsay

    Feeling for you. It's hard raising children especially when they are really young. I had a hard time and I wasn't sailing. So I bet it's really difficult. Just like parenting without sailing, you need to be able to have time to yourself, so see if there is some ways you can get help for some part of your trip or stop somewhere and get some time on shore if possible. Make sure to get self care. Parents need to take care of themselves in order to take care of their children. Congratulations for doing such a great job! Thinking of you guys. Take care.

    Having a child changes the whole deal, regardless of the situation (house, boat, igloo, shoe). The entire format switches from self indulgence to total sacrifice.

    She will be happy no matter where she is, as long as you are both there. Enjoy the suck (a mantra from my time in the US Military) which basically means things are not always good, don't forget the bad, and deal with what you got. My own child may get diagnosed with a terminal illness in the next few weeks, depending on results. Trust me when I feel the fear and confusion you are experiencing. Take a week trouble free and go over every option. Rash choices never work out.

    Parenthood and being responsible for a human being changes our lives completely. Having risen my kids to their presente age of 22 an 24 years (they currently attend college) has taught me this much. A have abstained from doing a lot due to the fact of having kids to raise and I have also been forced to do things I would rather not if I was not responsable for them. You will know what is best for you, for Kazza and Sierra. God Bless you and your family.

  • NateI

    Have y'all ever thought about land sailing for a few years? Explore a lot of areas on the land and live out of an RV. You could always take short stents on the boat and then revert back to full time on the sea when she is a little older????

  • David George
    David George

    The worst of times are really the best of times. I used to worry all the time that my daughter would fall off the boat or crash into something in the cabin. There is stress in that but it is an incredible time when you think about it. When daughter Alex was 8 years old she had learned the ropes and I cannot tell you how good I felt when she piloted our cruiser west on the ICW from Pensacola into Mobile Bay and north into port at Fairhope, AL in complete command of the boat. This was at NIGHT. She could run the radar, gps, radio, and manage engine gages. She also could dock at that age. Your child will be a super star so soon. Enjoy her while she needs you and keep a box on hand in a few years for her to stand on while she pilots the boat.

      Couldn't agree more. That child is learning so fast, cool to watch her balance herself, then try to put that head light on, and drop it while taking her stocking cap off. You're way ahead of me with common sense and I have a 4 yo. (on land and with TV to curb his attention) In the next year or so you'll rewrite you're idea of life with a child and "The Days are Long, and the Years are Fast" will ring clear in your mind and you'll appreciate these times. Even the bad ones. Keep the dream alive and adjust to produce an amazing adult one day. God Bless your family.

    Having a child tests everything about who you are and what you do. Those little critters are designed to break your soul, change your life, and steal your heart.

    I've been following you for quite sometime, responded to you three times and have loved your posts and lives. We all change with our circumstances; however, there comes a time we need reassess our next move. I believe you know this and encourage you to follow it. You can continue on the boat for ever and raise your children there - lucky kids - and be successful and enjoy it. Life seems to require us with age though to follow different paths to the point of not being able to fully enjoy the paths of the past. Look to each other for guidance though your video states what the next step might be. The thing is after you all have lived a life, a great life which most of us have not been able to experience, a better life may be at hand.. Moving forward might be tough and involve a change you once believed could never happen. You have entertained and given hope to thousands, thank you! I'm one of them! Do not allow those you have lifted up and brought their dreams to life within them, to determine via your assumed responsibility because of your Patrons to alter any path that comes to you. I wish you all the best no matter which way your next move takes you. Thank you!
