Guys, it's been a massive adventure. And like any story, it's filled with a series of events fortunate, unlikely, frankly a little crazy in hindsight. We're having a look back at when we first got started with SLV, so we can share with you a few of our thoughts on what it was like to put ourselves out there and take our big gamble. Even if you've been with us from the start, one of the folks giving us the push to keep going, there's of course so much to what happened that needs a little going over. We hope you guys get as much out of it as we did putting this together and remembering where we came from. So, without further ado, this is how we went from messing about with Windows Movie Maker and flattening our batteries for some family home videos to where we are now, talking to you guys 6 years later.

If you're new here, be sure to go back to where it all began on episode 1: trvid.com/u-playlist?list...

I think you guys live your life in a relatable and unrestricted way which, if I may say so is quite enviable to us mere mortal viewers. Very inspirational. Great family relatability for us personally.

So many highlights, from a sailing point of view, sailing Greta over to Europe was probably the biggest highlight, but from a life point of view watching you having and now raising the children.

Awesome insight guys great video, have been watching you from day one. As an inspirational object I think it would be cool to get one of your followers from hospital or just doing it tough to live your life for a week ? You could see how you inspire us first hand and give some one an experience of a lifetime.

I just want to Thank you guys for what you do with the Sailing life on TRvid! You have inspired me to go back into sailing after a 5-year sabbatical and you have inspired me to start a TRvid channel about my new sailing adventures! I'm a few months away from having my channel up and running but I do have my channel and now I'm getting my sailboat ready... Thank You and happy Sailing

Sorry SLV... but when will TRvid figure out how to block these spamming sexual bots.. I get responses to my post from obvious sexual bots, they have pictures in their icons and tell tale names, and I can't seem to be able to post anything to your channel without one of those attached. I don't understand this, and it takes away from my desire to follow you guys, which I know has nothing to do with you. Somebody, anybody, organize a campaign to eradicate these vermin. I'm getting to old to put that much effort into it. You think TRvid would do it automatically, but evidently they do not. Love SLV regardless.

I think Ive binge watched about 100 eps now.. probably time to become a patron. Sometimes I try watching other sailing you tubers.. but I always end up back on la vaga wanting more. Well and truly hooked! Also trying to make more of an active effort to like and comment.. I honestly didnt realise it had such a big effect. Im a serial non-interactive viewer but working on changing that! :)

Ive been with you guys from the very first video and I thought Id let you guys know what your efforts and adventures has meant to me and how it helped myself personally while I was going through my little adventures. I start watch SV Delos, Brain, Brady, Karen, and Josje, and when your first video came out You Tube recommended yours and it was perfect (fresh, refreshing, honest, and funny etc). I remember Rylies reluctance to support the videos. Myself, Im a retired factory worker on a small pension so living my dream of sailing around the world has to be done vicariously through you guys. While you guys were working out the income issues I had a major stroke in Nov 2016, then in Mar of 2018 I ruptured my colon and it leaked into my abdomen. And you cant have that happen without having a heart attack so in 2019 I had on of those as well. Through all this your week videos gave me an escape, an adventure that was just a little more exotic then my journey. In 2021 and all is well with me and all my firsts are behind me. And I still cant wait for your next video. PS Im glad you guy took a break, you work way to hard.

amazing oceangoing adventure, where most of us viewers will never experience personally- yeah we may read about it or hear from ocean cruises but never really get on one fearing calamities from many big operators, and then theres the virus, making travel more inaccessible- safe, but your adventures are amazing, I look forwards to my dose every Monday and sometimes a special additional video will drop. What does making it big on you tube do for you financially, how can we all help contribute to your endeavors besides Patreon?

That was a great look back. I know you will stand zero chance of seeing this comment but what the hell - here goes. I have watched your channel since the very first episode and this video caused me to look back at your channel in overview and was surprised to see the variability in numbers of views which is massive from the low hundred K to multiple millions.I just wondered as probably the most successful you tube sailing channel - if you have figured out that relationship of thumbnail, title and views?
