Jelly Fish Attack! Free Diving the Balearic Islands (Sailing La Vagabonde) Ep. 93
What happened? I just got stung by a jellyfish.
[Did ya?] And it wrapped around my whole arm and it really hurts I thought I shot you with the spear gun Good morning, all Riley and I are just hiring a car [Say hello]
to go to the airport. Hello! Hola! And pick up our Patreons, we have two Patreons who are going to be sailing with us So we’re really excited to meet them and show them a good time So yeah it’s a fair way to the airport, we figured that a car’s actually only 40 euros and the bus and… …taxis would have cost more so we’re stoked. Get to cruise around the island in a car. I really hope it’s this one, this one’s wicked Hell yeah, is it this one? Oh this one. We got a wagon No bad, eh?
[It’s pimpin] And so why are you driving Elayna? What’s the story behind this? Because Riley is a psycho driver, and I’ve banned him from driving forever. When I’m driving Elayna goes absolutely mental. I don’t go mental Riley.
[You’re doing it again]
You’re painting a very pretty picture of yourself You are a crazy driver. He doesn’t give way to give way to give way signs I don’t pay… …attention to silly road rules, I just don’t crash. Riles I don’t know if I’m going the right way. I don’t think I am, I’m going the wrong way here. If I was driving this would be happening perfectly. [Is this one way?] [????] Riley’s found a chandlery. Apparently there’s a lot of second-hand gear here, so even I’m excited. What’s on the list of things to buy? Gaff, fishing rod holders… …anchor, there’s heaps more. I don’t know. Fishing line? I’ve been using fishing line that’s way too big. Hugo told me very politely that I was an… [An idiot]
Idiot. I was using 200 kilo line because the fish kept snapping off. So I was like ok I need bigger line, I need bigger line. And he’s like no, you gotta pull the sails down… …which is not easy, and he’s not a sailor, he’s just like pull the sails and I said well… …it’s a bit more difficult than that, and he goes it doesn’t matter pull the sails down and then reverse back on it… …and you want like 14 kilo line, and that’s for big fish and then reverse back on it… …and he goes once you’ve got the catamaran you’ll just gobble on that. What do you guys reckon, is it about time I got some boat shoes? They suit me. I actually like them! Coils… …windscreen wiper… …sponges… And some plates for our new guests that we’re picking up from the airport in a minute because we had… two plates.
[Three plates] Oh, three.
[And one was small and I always had to eat out of it] So we got a little lost coming home, but we made it to Sóller, and we have with us… Marissa and Will. Say hello.
[Hello everyone] I got very lost. Yes, Riley. Thank you We’ve all had a drink and we’re just going to… …go back to the boat and get these guys settled in and maybe go have some dinner. So where did you guys come from? We’re from Vermont in the United States. Weeee! If I do this, we can get all of the beautiful stuff behind us. How about that, hey?
[There’s Martin’s sailboat] What happened? I just got stung by a jellyfish.
[Did ya?] And it wrapped around my whole arm and it really hurts. I thought I shot you with the spear gun. Let’s go!
[Alright] It hurts! It hurts a lot! I thought she’d been bitten by a shark. [Did you kill it Riley?] I killed it with one look. Owww it’s unbearable. We went to the Marine Park at Shark Bay in Australia… …and they said really hot, as hot water as you can stand, is good for most stings. [Ok] So it’s not going to burn you, but it’s hot. Owww that’s hot! I hope this is the right thing to keep doing. Nah it is. God that’s hot. Not for too long. Just let it drop. Babe it’s not even hot.
[It’s hot] I have showers with you and I know what you think is hot.
[It’s hot!] Alright, alright, alright. Alright alright alright. Oh that feels way better. Ok now ladies! [Yeah!] If I burn you on your hand. Also, I read…
[quick pour some more hot water on] …I read it’s good if…
[Put more, babe it hurts, put more on!] …I whip ya… [Riley!]
…and say funny jokes. We headed over to the dock to fill up with water before we left. Alright, Will’s got about three meters. Work it. Oh yeah. The boys are cleaning the boat. We go, I don’t know the name of it, but it’s seven miles north of here… …there’s a valley where to anchor in ten meters of water and… …go for a hike up the montaine. Well it’s just started raining, but we are sailing and we are happy. Aren’t we, folks? Always, even in the rain. It feels good, it’s good to be out of the little port there. Happy Dance time oh yeah. Oh yeah. Happy dance, yeah, yeah. So we’ve got about 18 knots wind in the opposite direction to what was forecast so all wondering what has gone wrong… …but there were some storms this morning, there was lots of lightning and thunder So it’s all bit funny today, but that’s cool. We’re going with it at the moment… …at eight knots with 18 knots true wind behind us so yeah. We’ve had a few big waves though …we’ve heard a few big bangs, had to put things away, our YouTube award went flying across the room, didn’t break though thankfully. Gotta keep that one. Alright. I’m going to attempt a little cooking lesson. I’m making… …well, I call it spaghetti Carbonara So it’s zucchini pasta with a tahini dressing and it’s really good. So what you need is a spiralizer, you need… …I don’t know how many zucchinis, a lot, enough to feed however many people you have Bit of olive oil. Want to caramelize some onions and mushrooms. Well, want to caramelized onions. Things have got really crazy outside… …so I’m gonna have to cut it short usually I would also cook up some eggplant that’s going to take a while, so… …I’m just going to do it the best I can here. All right, so I didn’t get to film the whole thing, but we have a salad base. This is tahini dressing It is just tahini and water mixed together with a bit of pepper Sometimes I add agave nectar if you want that a bit sweeter But not today, and this is our zucchini pasta at the bottom, we’ve got some sauteed broccoli, zucchini Onion and mushrooms and chickpeas, so that’s a little bit cloudy, but in the scheme of things it’s not bad at all. And add the sauce Wonder if there’s any treasure here. Should ask Oakey. We were at Sa Calobra Beach where the Torrent de Pareis has channeled a path into the ocean We jumped in the dinghy and headed to shore With the Mountain range looming over me like it was, it felt similar to when we first arrived in the Marquesas having not seen land for 21 days. It just didn’t look real Can you guys even believe this place? What are we in right now? I can’t take it all in. Like it’s just too much going on. A glitch in the Matrix Elayna This is so cool! [Creepy you reckon?]
This is the zone of quality This is a little bit, I don’t know. Makes you feel a little bit weird. Riles and I just going for a spearfish slash free dive at the point here. There’s La Vaga over there You definitely won’t be able to see with the GoPro lens but I’ll show you under the surface I’m really nervous about jellyfish, can still feel the pain. There are no fish here so we have just been practicing free diving. We’ve just got an anchor 30 meters of rope, put only 20 out because We haven’t free dived in a while I said we haven’t got 30 out, we’ve only got 20 out Riley got 20. I think I got about 18, so… …I wanna go down again
