I have watched a few La Vagabonde videos. And enjoyed them. They are a very engaging couple. They have obviously learnt a huge amount about sailing. Riley can definitely give opinions based on experience. Their sailing is far removed from mine. But I regard them as the modern equivalent of Eric and Susan Hiscock.
And at their young age, they already have three transatlantics to their credit including a mid-winter N.Atlantic crossing with Greta Thunberg. They certainly aren't armchair sailors.

I must admit that I will watch the La Vagabonde videos with renewed interest. I had thought that the Outremer seemed perfect for them. In contrast the Rapido 60 looks like it would be a handful single handed with family on board. Hopefully I’m wrong.

I watched a few of their vids when they first started. But got a bit bored of them in the cat. Mostly because I had very little interest in the boat. Might have to watch a few vids with the new boat, looks like an interesting bit of kit.
