About Sailing La Vagabonde

Australian couple Riley Whitelum and Elayna Carausu go wherever the wind takes them, as they traverse the globe via sailboat. Despite their phenom status, the duo began their water world adventure with next to nothing for sailing experience. The couple’s learn-as-you-go adventures documented via YouTube channel “Sailing La Vagabonde” have now amassed 585K+ YouTube subscribers and another 230K+ between their Instagram accounts. The couple is now expecting a baby, with the future sailor-to-be already set to accompany its parents for formative sea firsts.
