Awesome ... Riley, did you choreograph the dolphin cameos 👍. Elayna, didn’t need to say a word looking in the camera with a sleeping Lennie on the plane, your face said a thousand words of contentment, beautiful ... Riley reading with his sleeping son on plane, beautiful pics and memories to line your walls for all your days 💕

Real awesome footage. And a very interesting documentation of life on a boat during the race. Thanks Riley

That winch grind sound from the sheet wrapped around it, is a sound I’m all too familiar with. So are most sailors. Ahhh you gotta love it

I recognise Ed from the 16ft Skiff class race he mentioned. He has sailed regattas at Port Hunter in Newcastle against me and our fleet. His boat is very quick

I remember finishing the Vasco Dagama race. We took line honours, but there was almost no wind and only two officials to see us over the finish line with no spectators. In my mind I thought we were going to fly over the finish line at high speeds like we did the rest of the race, but finishing was a very quiet affair. We were only 12 vessels in total I think. Can't imagine 500.

Excellent video. Riley, you seemed to notch in well. That's not always an easy thing on a race boat. It would have been cool to get a little more background on the skipper/owner she seems like a badass lady.

Looks like a great edition of the SH, although on light winds side this year. Thx for sharing your view on equipment. I do sail offshore single-handed and bought an offshore musto full equipment recently and I am absolutely stunned how poorly it compares to way cheaper competition... probably the last time I buy musto for me. I don’t see the value of any extra $ spend on this brand which seems -to me- wayyyyyy over exaggerated. Any alternative for a reasonable product, let me know. There was a great discussion about this on the podcast of 59 north of Andy Shell a few months ago! Safe sailing/ covid!

Exciting! And Once upon a time in Hollywood! However Captain Riley, I would steer clear of the phrase Boat Jobs, if you can't hear it clearly it can easily get misunderstood! Took me a second listen and then "ah, he said BOAT jobs."Thank Neptune!

This Gospel Tract is posted regardless of location and subject with discernment. The bible says Christians are called to proclaim the uncompromised and complete biblical gospel (Matthew 24:14, Matthew 28:19-20, Romans 1:16, John 12:48) Good News! Find Eternal Life 1) Faith: Faith in the finished work of Christ (fully man, fully God) and His perfect sacrifice for sins (John 3:16) 2) Repentance: Turn from your fallen, sinful mind and ways to all of God's Holy ways. (Luke 13:3) 3) Born again: You must be born of God's spirit to ever see eternal life. In this new life, He gives you a new heart and mind to then serve Him as He sees you a willing vessel for them. (John 3:3, John 3) 4 ) Holiness with obedience: If you're changed by God you WILL, as fruit, strive to leave all sin, worldliness, carnality and false ways (like man-made religion, entertainment, etc.) and obey all His commands and be holy in all your ways. (1 Peter 1:15 / Hebrews 5:9 / Hebrews 12:14) 5) Endure in your faith: You MUST keep clinging to Christ via this saving faith to the end of your life, lest you fall away and have believed in vain. (Matthew 24:13, Matthew 10 and 1 Corinthians 15) Warning: If you do not obey the fully biblical gospel to eternal life, after your physical death, you will be judge by God and you will pay for your sins with your soul in Hell for all eternity, for the penalty of (ANY Unrepented) sin is death (Romans 6:23). See the full tract on my website at (Note: All replies to this comment will be ignored. You may contact us via email on our web pages.)

I remember as kids we would sail these little sunfish boats around the lake. It was so much fun because there was no real penalty for tumping or doing nasty jibes. Much love guys

It is so cool that you are participating in Sydney Hobart race. I have wished to do it since I was 4 weeks in Sydney around christmas and New Year 2011/2012. We saw the start of the race in the harbour. It was some time before we sailed the Worlds in Yngling from sydney squadron yacht club in the middle of the harbour. Our boats was shipped with containerships from Denmark to Australia and back. It was such a good experience in Sydney. I would love to come back. I love the country and the people.

I started halfway through the show on nephews big screen smart tv and was instantly hooked. Since then I've been frantically playing catchup with past episodes. I might should be careful what I wish for. If I catchup i won't be able to binge watch , which would be to use an Aussie term " bugger " . Incredibly well made show with just the right mix of tourism , beauty, action , cuisine , history , music , and of course a unique insight to the crews humanity. An honest courageous decision by the crew that makes it in my opinion one of the best reality based shows of all time. Thank you Riley, Elayna,and Lenny for giving me a much needed escape during trying social distancing times.
