Hospitals in Paradise… Now He Can’t Swim Ep.156


(mid-tempo guitar music) – You’re going to have to
learn how to do that, Elayna. – Hello it’s Anthony Rosswhite
and I’m back on board. I’ve been put to work immediately. – Look at these guys. – [Elayna] (giggles) Love it. It’s world class diving here so this place is famous
for its coral reefs. (mid-tempo guitar music) ♪ You’ve been lost in song for days ♪ ♪ And I’ve been drinking myself ♪ ♪ And I was lost ♪ Last Monday you sailed with us up to Turks and Caicos
here in the Caribbean. This water is incredibly blue. Alright so worst case
scenario has happened and we have just run aground. Some poor visibility, a missing
marker, and a narrow channel led to La Vagabonde
grounding for the first time, and hopefully the last. We owe this guy so much
beer it’s ridiculous. We just made it into the marina and tied up to these concrete blocks. Riley had a bit of an accident. If we just antiseptic, we can glue stitch it up. – Yeah, we’re getting good, huh? I’m a day early. – Really? – [Riley] Dad doesn’t
get in until tomorrow. – I should be mad ’cause I just started
cleaning like a maniac. – [Riley] Don’t worry about that. What about the mad rush
we’ve been in to get here? We could have spent
another night in Dominica. That’s the whole reason
any of this bad shit has happened from the beginning. – Oh well it is what it is. – [Riley] I was expecting
you to be angrier than that. That’s why I pulled out– – It’s not the first time you– – [Riley] That’s why I
pulled out the camera. – It’s not the first time
you got your dates wrong. It’s a given, I am not surprised. – [Riley] It’s like a protective coating. It’s like a coat of armour. – You are hopeless. – [Riley] You should be nicer
to me ’cause I’m injured. – Do you want to go to town? – [Riley] That just
started hurting actually. – Do you want to go to town? – [Riley] When you said that. – Come on, let’s go now. – [Riley] I’m getting pretty sore. – Shut up. – [Riley] I can’t believe
I’m not in more trouble. – Well I have no energy
for you to be in trouble. I’m not going to waste it on you mister. – [Riley] I hurt my toe as well. – Be there tomorrow, it’s open on Sunday. – Thank you very much for saving us today. – I didn’t save you. – You did, you really did. – I helped you guys. (Elayna laughs) – [Riley] You did, man, thank you. – We were able to drag
you off nice and easy and hopefully did no damage to the boat. – [Elayna] Yeah we need to
jump in tomorrow and check. – [Riley] Yeah I don’t
think there will be. – No, I don’t think so either. It was all sand.
– Yeah. – And got you back in
the channel in then boom, you motored yourself right here right. (Elayna laughs) – [Elayna] Right, time for another beer. So we’re walking to find some food. And Matthew said there’s like
a little underground business going on here, like Uber
but without the app. Where the locals just pick you up and you give them some money
for driving you around. And apparently it’s really really cheap so we’re just waiting for
someone to drive past, beep the horn and we’re
supposed to stick up our hand and tell them where we want to go. – [Riley] Get your skirt up there. (Elayna laughs) (birds tweeting) – [Elayna] Well this is
not looking promising. And I think we’ve walked
a few kilometres already. (car radio plays indistinctly) Amazing! Seriously thank you so
much, you’ve made our day. Well dinner was phenomenal. Riley is ordering dessert
because it’s been a tough day. And he got– – [Riley] It’s been a tough week. The only people that I’ve hung out with apart from you and Stefan,
fish on Sombrero Island. – [Elayna] And you’re
still only hanging out with me now. (laughs) Well you could have found
some friends at the bar. – I’m sick to death of you. (Elayna laughs) It’ll be good when Dad comes tomorrow. – [Elayna] Yeah. Happy? – Yeah. – [Elayna] Ready for bed after this? – Oh man, yes. More than I’ve ever been
ready for bed in my life. (Riley snoring) – [Woman On Radio] The red
markers on our starboard, we line them up so
they’re one behind another and approach that way, confirm, over. – [Man On Radio] That’s
affirmative, affirmative. – [Elayna] We’ve got
another boat coming in. Fingers crossed they don’t
do what we did yesterday. So I’ll be watching very closely. – [Man] You got her in. – That channel was pretty
treacherous isn’t it? So up ahead I’ve got the port side marker that floated away in a storm recently. So that was just, that’s another reason. That is going out I think
this afternoon or tomorrow. So that’s right on the part where Elayna and I were just
a little too far to port. So that’s it there. So this is the sailor’s favourite
marina in Providenciales and I noticed that you are guiding people into the channel there. I really should have called up in advance and done that, shouldn’t I mate? – Yeah that’s a good idea. Charts do have our course on it but first time approach, a
little help on the radio works. – [Riley] Yeah, absolutely. So how long have you had
this marina here for Bob? – I started building it in 1994. And I started building one dock to keep my 60-foot sloop out and this happened. – [Riley] Yeah, wow. You weren’t affected by
the storms and hurricanes? – You see the hills around us here. We did very well. We’re tucked into the side of the hill and very little damage. I did advise everybody
to be out of the water, so there was only two big boats in here, and they did okay. – [Woman On Radio] Marina this is Tinga. Can you advise us whether we are a port or starboard tie-up? – So I’m caught in a
bit of a moral dilemma because this marina is good and the channel is definitely navigable but a boat just hit and then left and I didn’t want to film it
because Bob was next to me. I was trying to film him on the radio talking people in which
is what he usually does. So if you’re thinking about coming here just come on high tide, pay attention. Get in contact with Bob in
advance and do it like that. Because yeah, I think if you do all of those things it would
actually be quite easy. And if the other channel
marker was out there. – [Elayna] So we’re just
taking Riley to the hospital because his leg hasn’t stopped bleeding. – [Riley] It just drips blood
at very inappropriate moments. – So yeah we’re going to
have to go find a hospital. And the taxis here are
so ridiculously expensive and after last night’s hike we’re not going to attempt
to walk to the hospital because we’re probably
not going to get a lift. So it’s either taxi or hire car and we heard the hire cars are cheaper so we’re gonna try and tee
up one of those this morning. – [Riley] We can get Dad as well. – Yeah and we can pick up
Riley’s dad from the airport. We’re pretty hopeless
at filming this morning but we just got taken (Riley sings) we just got taken to the car hire place. We have a van; it was
all very fast thankfully. And I have a map here
that’s gonna direct me to the hospital. Once you get to the roundabout
you need to go right. – [Riley] Medical practise dentistry. – Can I do that for you? – You can if you like. – [Medic] What are you
planning for the next week? Are you going to be here or? – [Riley] Fishing, diving, running. – You’re not going to be diving. – [Elayna] (laughing) Yeah. – Look at that! – [Elayna] Oh that’s horrible. – [Riley] That is wrong. (medic speaking indistinctly) – [Elayna] There you go Riles, not so bad. – You’re going to have to
learn how to do that, Elayna. (Elayna giggles) – [Riley] We made it to the airport just in time to pick up Dad and Joanne and some good family friends
of ours, Tony and Stelleen. (lively guitar music) – [Elayna] In goes the beer. (talking indistinctly) (lively guitar music) ♪ For 16 years I’ve been
in self destruct mode ♪ ♪ Just waiting for that
timer to run out on me ♪ ♪ Show me what this life is all about ♪ ♪ Maybe you could teach me
about a world I’ve never seen ♪ So we survived our exit out of the marina and we’ve got a happy crew onboard. All the jobs are being done. We got a fridge, or two
fridges full of food and an esskey so we’re prepared for at least a few weeks’ adventure. I’m gonna to introduce you to the crew. I think we’ve seen your face before. (laughing) Who’ve we got here? – Hello it’s Anthony Rosswhite
and I’m back on board. I’ve been put to work immediately. – [Elayna] Yep! So you came across the Pacific with us. – I did indeed, yes. Had a great trip across
and got the taste for it. – [Elayna] You did, great
to have you onboard. – Thank you! – [Elayna] (giggles) So
who have we got here? – [Riley] The mayor of Venus– – Ah, not quite. Tony, friends of Riley’s
dad since school days and I’ve known Riley since he was born. – [Elayna] And you and Tony went to boarding school together? – We did for a while, yes. We got kicked out together (Elayna giggles) You can see where Riley gets it from. – [Elayna] Yeah I really do. Who have we got here? – My name’s Stelleen and I’m friends of Riley and Elayna’s travelling with them for our first time. – [Elayna] Alright great
to have you onboard. – Thank you! – [Elayna] What have we got here Joanne? – Vegetarian sausage rolls. – [Elayna] I love you. (both giggling) I’ll have to watch you closely. (gears whirring and clicking) We’re just coming out of the channel now so we’re hoisting the main sail and then we’re gonna
sail on the western side of the west island to
get to our anchorage. Good? – (muffled) Very good. (Elayna giggling) (lively guitar music) – So I don’t know if I
said but this is actually it’s world class diving here so this place is famous
for its coral reefs and also a large variety
of sea life apparently so we’re all gonna jump in
the water and check it out except for Riley because, poor thing he can’t get in
the water because of his leg, (Riley laughs loudly)
for another few days. What? – I’ve just dropped some apple over. And these fish came out and
scared the crap out of Dad. – [Elayna] How sad are you,
you can’t jump in the water? – Ah, I’m okay. It’d be nice to show these
guys how to free dive a bit. Look at those guys. – [Elayna] (giggles) Love it. What are you gonna do while I’m gone? – I’m gonna have a fresh water wash down on the back of the boat, and eat a Vegemite and cheese sandwich. – [Elayna] Doesn’t sound too bad. – Not too shabby. (mid-tempo guitar music) – [Elayna] It was a relief to
be able to jump in the water and check out the damage on the
rudder from running aground. Riley wasn’t too concerned because of the speed we were going and because the ocean
floor was mostly sand. Luckily we got away
with just a few scrapes. (mid-tempo guitar music) ♪ Build a shed, invite your friends ♪ ♪ Have a great party then
watch it all burn in the end ♪ ♪ Live it up ♪ ♪ Live it up everybody ♪ ♪ Live it up ♪ So we just drove the dinghy
a nautical mile north and this is an abandoned marina, so this other building is two years ago and then something went wrong financially and they’ve given up on it so yeah. It’s a bit of a graveyard actually. (mellow guitar music) – [Riley] Well I think we found
Bob’s other channel marker. – If I had a house with
lots of good places to hang up things, I would definitely be collecting some of this stuff. There’s rope, all sorts
just washed up here in the trees, like driftwood, so much fun. Oh cute! (giggling) I think I’ve just found a cotton tree. Yeah! Look at that. Beautiful. Whoa, found the best spot! – Okay so as everyone knows we
invite some Patrons on board. We push up seven and then we
randomly select two people. One of whom is Harold Schmelzer, so looking forward to meeting you, mate. And the other is Alexis Atkinson. So if you guys could get
hold of us via email. Yeah send an email to
[email protected] and we’ll organise to have
you and your partner on board. We’re gonna hang out and go sailing. I’m gonna tell you some funny jokes and we’re all gonna have
a ripping good time. Congratulations and thank you
very much for your support. – [Elayna] What have we got here, Tony? – We have risotto and it has peppers, olives, garlic, chilli, tomatoes and mushies. And to go with it for the
vegetarians we have the tofu in salt and on the
right we have chicken cooked in basically the same
ingredients as that one. – [Elayna] Well thank you very much. – Right, it’s probably done
onto my chart card then. I’m on the phone to B and G, he goes power down everything so I went do do do which
turned off the wi-fi. – [Elayna] Oh no! – Which cut my connection to him. – [Elayna] Oh no! – Which is pretty funny. – [Elayna] Typical. (Riley laughing) – [Riley] Thanks for watching. You’re welcome to join us next time when we cook some fish on the fire before we take on the rest of the Turks. I’ve felt like a bit of an
adventurer and explorer. (mellow guitar music) (waves lapping)

  1. I know you guys probably are so busy that you never have a chance to see the comments but from someone who just started watching your channel a couple weeks ago it's been the most amazing thing to see your journey and all the amazingly beautiful places you've gone and experienced. It's something I once dreamed of doing but will probably never get to unfortunately but I get to live vicariously through you guys and want to thank you for that. If I get time soon I'll do a portrait of you and your two vessels and try and send it to you one day. Thank you again and please be safe on your incredible journey!!!

  2. I usually don't commend on other people's outward appearance because the chance of it sounding too cheesy is enormous, BUT: Elayna, you are looking more and more beautiful with every pregnancy week in! You guys look balanced and happy (except for Riley's knee) 🙂 all the best from Germany!

  3. Hi guys, great vids as always. You inspire many others to get into the sailing life.
    One question, do you guys get together with other vloggers on YouTube? I noticed on another vloggers post that you guys were in the same anchorage. Just curious as it would be good to see on all vloggers posts the occasional vloggers with other vloggers showing that you all get along with each other. Obviously some may not but some will. Just a thought guys as I think that it would be entertaining.
    I must be getting soft in my old age 🙂

  4. Watching La Vagabond is like watching the TV show Combat from the sixties. Every week Vic Morrow gets shot in some part of his body.

  5. Well that’s me just binge watched the last 3 years in the evenings over a week!! What a catch up :). Finishing up work next week and then heading to Spain to move onboard my new (to me) Jeanneau 469 :D. Great videos and loads of inspiration, I’ll be staying in the Med over the winter but next year, who knows! Keep up the awesome work and keep living the dream. You two are awesome.

  6. Provincials is my favorite Caribbean island. Excited to see this vlog but sorry to see you were hurt especially with your father coming to visit. Elayna you are glowing.

  7. Great Episode guys! With having the chance to visit TCI myself it was awesome to see a fav place come up in it (Mango Reef). I loved it there and this episode reminded me how beautiful it is. Thanks for the episode and can't wait for more.

  8. I had to come on and thank you for being the catalyst for meeting two fine people in Coeur D'Alene, ID. I took the boat tour on the lake where I met the bartender from New Zealand, the accent made me think of you and I told her so. Amazingly she also watches your vids so we chatted about your travels. I was in that neck of the woods for my daughter just got married in Dworshak state park and I heard how beautiful Coeur D'Alene was. She was very kind and recommended we go to Sweet Lou's for dinner and be sure to get a particular waiter, I asked if it was her husband and she said " no, my brother". We did eat there where I tried (Elayna close your eyes ) bison ribs and a death ale. It was amazing and her brother was a hoot, handsome ginger with an accent, yes ladies, I may be married 25 yrs but not dead. Anyway I scoured the comments thinking I might see them, but I don't know their handle. Again just wanted you to know you made this Vegas mama happy and I love meeting new people and hearing their stories, that's part of why I love your vids. Keep it up, your spreading joy even in places you've never been. Namaste

  9. I've never had a cut heal so quickly and cleanly since I got a 2 inch gash from a lobster pot. IMHO salty sea water is great for wounds. Treat yourself with salt solution followed by honey or syrup! So, Riley, you should have gone in!

  10. Your dad must be so proud of you Riley, hell I'm proud of you and I don't know you. You've done really well in life, congratz.

  11. why don't you do something crazy different at some point. For instance you could sail up to Norway and into the arctic circle.

  12. Sorry for criticism – but whats about a first aid course for both of you? Especially because Riley has used up his luck. As others here already noted, this injury absolutely needed treatment – but with the treatment Scott mentioned it would have been less complicated. Such wound stripes and medical glue should be on board of a seagoing ship.

  13. GOD DAMN! I was writing a long message here and then i managed to push it away 😛 🙁
    Well here i go again.
    I was in a really bad mood but now i am all fine again thanx to you guys 🙂
    Even when you are in a bad mood you are still both funny and still so sweet to each other. It is so nice to see.
    The love shines thru all the time and it really warms my heart. Love you guyz for being you!
    As i have all the time in the world i would so much love to join you on one of your trips but i would hate saying goodbye again. Maybe i need to join the patron crew? Hmm is there maybe a way to hack that F7 button of yours? 😀 😀 😀

    Looking forward to the next video! Safe sailing and for Riley (safe everything else) 😛

  14. Just finished binge watching 156 episodes while recovering from knee surgery. Riles, you need a Killick! Retired ex U.S. Navy Deep Sea Diver, mechanical engineer with blue water sailing experience available for any leg, can pay my own way and works for free! Killick! Killick there!

  15. question
    where do you find Adam Yoo music?? i can only find a small bit on YouTube/sound cloud but id love to hear more of his stuff.
    cheers!

  16. Hello it's crazy to think how long you have been sailing just had a look at some of your videos from way back rather cool I think hope your leg gets better soon

  17. Meh…those are rookie stitches…you need to pump those numbers up! My last major injury was I had a chain-winch come loose and drop on my left hand and drove a spark plug tip through my left hand.

  18. Go the vegemite and cheese sanga.. where or what playlist do yous get all your groovy chilled tunes you put on your vids.. I love the music!! As always sweet vids.. Go the crows and happy travels ✌

  19. Hi Guys, If you want to practice how to stitch like that DR. buy a few pigs feet at the market, make a few cuts and stitch away.

  20. if you come across the top of tci , like on the e side coming back toward luperon, be a mate and grab my rockna package real quick? It's in 10n ft. of water, I was just tired and made a mistake, snapped my chain then had to motor the shallow's at night, it's my first sail outside of the u.s., I put on a wet suit cause the odd's seemed to be in favor of thing's that go bump that evening. as I'm quite sure you'de be bored without doing 429,000 of us favors,, lol

  21. PROVIDENCIALES! My second home! If I knew you were coming I'd have met up and said hi. Good choice eating at Mango Reef, one of the best places on island. Also a good choice with the clinic, they've patched me up a few times.

    EDIT: I hope you didn't take any of those conch, they're severely depleted by casual fishing, and the seasons aren't enough to allow them to recover. Recently the conch nursery on island shut down due to a financial dispute, which was the only thing sustaining their numbers.

  22. Iodine — Riley — It's the cheapest, most available and best antibiotic you can carry for rashes, cuts, abrasions, etc. You can even get pure stuff and use for mouthwash as a anti-cavity and gingivitis. Seriously great stuff and cheap and guaranteed to work. A bit ugly — but, works. Buy it by the quarts. Use it liberally.

  23. Is it just me or is Riley hurting himself constantly? I mean you reach a point when it's not only circumstance… you big cluts…

  24. Giday guys! Another great episode! What is the 1st tune played at the begining of this episode? I tried to cacth it on soundhound but it did not find it. Thanks!

  25. Its amazing how quickly women panic when their man is not fully functional. A word from the wise. When your female partner insists on un realistic time lines and creates panic as a result there will be accidents and delays. Women and family ! Its why men build sheds.

  26. Got some very important info for you 2, I know you 2 spend every hour together, but do 3 things, 1 catch up at the end of the day to really listen to each other, 2 have a date night once a week, 3 have (quality time) on your date night you know what I mean, by doing this you are loving your spouse in a more tangible way

  27. you guys ARE adventurers and explorers. haha riley's pops hella puttin up with the camera! "oaky doaky" haha love it! legends.

  28. I've been watching again from the start. So have you learned how to sew Riley up yet Elay? Jk. I wanted to say how grateful I am to not have to turn the volume up and down through the video. Your sound is so consistent; thank you! Amazing!

  29. why not having a dive compressor and see every places you go from under the sea … a dive scooter is $200 , take two
    there is a lot more to discover then what you think , you just sail on top of dream dive spots. look like you are running anchoring 10 times faster then at the first trips when you start this adventure , take it easy Mike, relax , rest the talking to live the moment, your charter is missing new action, even if you are the most friendly each episode is missing some and turn to go go go and routine, your you tube watchers already have this at home , shake the tree, have a baby for a change … just do some thing !!!

  30. I've just now gotten around to watching this. We were at the same marina just a few weeks before you I think. The channel marker was tied up at the dock at that time as well. I'd be willing to venture it still hasn't been put back out in the channel. The people there don't seem motivated to make improvements or repairs. We did fine coming in, but briefly touched bottom on the way out, in the exact location you were aground. Exciting times!

  31. Hi Guys , I have now been watching 20 or so Vids in a row , all day… I am a Chef of 40 years
    and every time I see Eayna cooking I think of the challenges of being on a boat with no Supermarket and limited Refrigeration and tiny Freezer. There are many ways to preserve food , including the fish you catch , but I am sure you already know these things. From watching your vids , I can see that you are both extremely intelligent and well educated.
    You also have Google. From another Aussie… Bloody nice Work 🙂
    And don't forget when someone asks where you are , you are up a Gumtree Chasing Possums.

  32. man i teared up when ur parents showed up, can't even imagine what that feels like picking up your parents on a boat in a different country that you sail to! must be so amazing!

  33. Liquid bandage or krazy glue krazy stings a Lil bit but u need to buy it in the case loads to glue Riley back together all the time

  34. I know you probably wont see this but for a young lady who is too sick to get out of bed most days due to illness, your videos bring so much LIGHT, HOPE, distraction and so much beauty into my very small room and it enables me to dream about a life of travel & FREEDOM one day, when I hopefully find a cure. I cant thank you enough for creating this content that has had me in tears on multiple occasions thinking "one day I'll get there" but if I dont thank God I've watched your videos. For now it is truly a BRIGHT escape during a really dark time. I thank you both for changing someone's life who you dont even know exists & am wishing you all the best on all your adventures especially this new chapter w lenny. You guys rock.

  35. Collect all that cool beach stuff and sell it on Etsy. (delivery between one week and two months depending on where you are. LOL)

  36. Elayna you are adorable!! such a genuine gentle soul. It’s so cool watching..Riley it seems I could chat with you for days man and you are correct everyone should have this opportunity to see the views coming from the helm come pick me up..

  37. That boat you helped at 4:48 from Toronto, On. is from my neck of the woods up in Canada (i'm from Ottawa), small world isn't it, reminds me of your 6 degrees of separation video.

  38. This channel is always just what the title says. Probably the only youtube with no clickbait….I love it

  39. Would someone please show the best way to eat vegemite? I tried some (I'm from Texas btw) and my mouth twisted like i had just drank a gallon of lemon juice…..
