Captain Cook!? - Free Range Sailing Ep 101

Show Video

Chef Troy, yep. The blue moon just rose. I'm. Like a mining, at the moment yeah, it looks like it down there yeah it is a little bit. These. Days. Well. We set out the sale from Fitzroy reef back to Kapil's and. We're expecting some wind but it, died out midday, so, we've stopped here. So. We've, stopped here we're at West re reef at the moment no, speed fishing here it's, a closed area but, we're, gonna go and launch the dinghy we'll, go for a bit of a drift dive and we'll see what's what's, happening in the channel. But. It. The. Show. Chef. Troy. Yep. The blue moon just rose. Looks. Like game with a lot of potatoes, he. Looks like the territory. Yeah, cool. Madam what, we're having tonight. I've. Got that ghee my dry roasted, some. Cumin, first and. Then I, just. Flashed off some, turmeric and about two, tablespoons of ghee and. Now I'm. Just shallow. Frying these potatoes, till they're tender maybe a little bit crunchy then. I'm going to stir through these chickpeas. Maybe. Dig, up some masa potato, I say, potato. And. Then we'll, top it off with some tomatoes. And yogurt, and serve, it up with some. What's. This quinoa, what. Do you think. All. Right so there's the chickpeas they just went in and. What I didn't treat you before, is. Just, before I put in the tomatoes, I'm gonna put in some cardamom, and. Grading some nutmeg, I, might. Even put some sooner we got me. So. This will be a bit of a Swedish sort, of dish sweet, ish, not Swedish. So nutmeg, cinnamon, little. Cardamom we'll. Throw some tomatoes at, it and. We'll let it stew for a little while and. Then top it off with some yogurt and I'll serve it up and then. Hopefully the window way back there we can say along. Dinner. Is ready. Everybody. I. Am. I decided against, tomato in the end Pascal I just. Thought we'd have a creamy curry YUM, that's great, there's a pass the pesky, test yep. Sure. Does, you're. Just saying that so I'll cook more often. Unfortunately. I'm, gonna get up the mast.

We're. Planning on going for a bit of a night sail tonight. So, I was just checking the nav lights and of course you can only really see if you if you're sailing lights going in the dark to. Discover. But it's not on it's, dark so. I'm gonna go up the last, it's. Been playing up a little bit lately and I don't know whether it's a corroded contact, or an LED that's going out we're just going to put a brand, new in there. Well, this. Is a um an, old-timey, halogen. Light up there so. I think. What it was was there's a bit of corrosion on these contacts. So. I can get. Some wet and dry, will. Clean all that up I'll clean all my greasy. Fingerprints, off this glass with some methylated, spirits and we'll keep it as a spear the, LED, I put up there will will mean that we, we. Um. We. Probably won't use quite as. Many. Amps, to run our navigation, like when we're sailing yeah. The. Wind arrived a few hours later and we were underway on a fast paced beam run under, the light of the moon. By. Dawn the wind had increased to 25, knots. We, were making such good speed we decided, on a brief return to civilization. To get a few chores done. This. Is a volcanic, plug it, was formed when lava hardened, within an ancient volcanic vent when. The surrounding rock eroded away, it was left behind just, like it was turned out of a mold. All. Right well we. Made it to the capital Bay Marina we're, not really marina people as you know but it, is good to come in and. Do. Some laundry that's, normally the main thing we like to do and I've got three, lots of sheets here to wash so. I'm going to be pretty busy for the next couple of hours let's. Hope I get it all done. One. Thing we also like to clean as well as our. Cushion. Covers these, things, that we made when we left Fremantle, there they're, still hanging in there they're just Navy. Canvas. They. Get quite salty because we sit on them stool I computer, work and to eat our meals. Don't. You wash them again. I'm. A little bit out of luck, there's, for washing machines of this marina and there's not a single one free well. I might not have had much of a wind but it looks like you've had a win. Well. A little. Bit the. Beauty box. I'm. Using, last, time we did. Public glass we did the stitching glue method this time using the glue and glue method so I've just made that little box hot glued it together and. Now I'm going to. Resin. It together so we've. Got the. Last of the epoxy we written Boyd a bunch of talcum powder it's. Thick enough and. We'll. See here we go but everything's sort of everywhere some. Morning. I'm like a morning at the moment yeah, looks like there's. A little bit, we're. Running against the clock because we want to use the good weather to go out to the roof we. Want to use the good weather we've. Pulled in to Rosalind, Bay Marina and it's a really great marina but it's incredibly social so. We. Keep meaning to get jobs done there's, really friendly people here that's it's actually making, it quite difficult the. Friendly people of your phone. We. Just want to spend time with them we've. Been invited for a nice dinner tonight. Yeah. So we're gonna have dinner at the water line restaurant. Right. At the end of Marina. A real. Highlight of our live aboard life is to, be able to swap stories experiences. And information with, other like-minded cruises. Would, you think pesco very excited, Simonetta snake in a long time, what did we go I feel. It's a seasonal. Vegetables, and new, potatoes and I should be playing with my cutlery comes up and get mad. As. The tender cycle, ever had. Mumbling. That's, a good call. It's. Delicious. What's, the story they pesco it's Chris to the rescue. Yeah. We've we. Couldn't get the washing done at the marina, so. We. Found one of our fans, who. Happens to be a one-eyed. Your. Poon supporter, definitely onion yeah absolutely, unashamedly. Coastal, that's my business in my. This. Is this is that little redneck retreating you welcome, here anytime if. You come back through will. Do you won't be a laundry. All. Right so we're gonna bang on some washing, an image is going to go and have a look around new plan they've even offered, to do it for us and drop it around tomorrow which is quite, outrageous. Chris, and his wife Debbie were the perfect hosts, and kept us entertained with, a stream of stories, about their lives in America and now in your poon. One. Of the places they took us to was wreck point this, spot gets its name from the ship Selena that was found washed up here cruelest but still with its cargo of cedar timber, after oak missing on its maiden voyage from Brisbane to Sydney. Over, the 15 months she was missing it is suspected that the Selena drifted, around on the currents of the Tasman Sea probably. Southing all the way to the Victoria coastline before. Drifting eastwards, towards New Zealand and then north to her final resting place in your poon a.

Salvage. Attempt of the Selena of the beach in 1848, was unfortunately. Unsuccessful. This. Is the stunning public, infinity, pool in your poem entry. Is free all year round. Thirty-two. Bars of chocolate. Chocolate. Was unspecial when I was doing her order. Online. Which. Is pretty, amazing, it's a provisioning. Made easy now with the joys of online, shopping and. They. Delivered, it to the marina and even the lady was so lovely and kind she brought, the boxes, all the way down to our boy so it, was probably, the easiest provisioning. I've ever done on morale and it, was good because it was a big order and we ordered lots of things so we don't have to go and get essentials, when we pull in to ports along the way. So, you build a box what's. The box form I thought, we just. Don't. Have enough storage on you so I'll just build another box yeah. No. Well um we'll pop this over the the anchor winch next, time bring some some. Heavy water and. I might stop some of the water going down in the anchor Locker and splashing, around the machinery space and stuff like that what. About the butt plug. The. Butt plug people, loved it when I caught a butt plug good night so, the, holes not the right size like we've been large that. Just. Like the the winch manufacturers, wanted yeah we want to try and keep a small hole a year ago but, we've been large dat and it's opened up a few other. What. Do you call it, options. Open. Up a few other options and we'll cover that you know we're about to do some anchoring. Demonstrations. And stuff like that so we'll look at that but yeah. Keeping water out the boats become harder so this little box I'm putting over and if it works fine then, I'll sand, it paint it because it is epoxy, so. UV, will in. Time break down and support so it will paint it eventually but. I want to give it a bit of a trial run before I invest too much more time and effort into it because, to. Be honest it hasn't really taken that much time and effort has it most the times involved, is waiting for the epoxy to dry. We. Hope you enjoyed this week's episode of free-range sailing, please.

Good choice in chocalete. 90% coco. Very healtht

Thanks for sharing the beautiful footage & nice edit! Shout out to Chris + Debbie for helping out too :)

A well maintained and well run boat. Old Sea Dog...take note.

I am a dedicated watcher, I dont comment much but that doesn't mean anything bad about your videos. They are always top notch. This one just caught my eye. The adding the fish names was great. I have no clue what they are and it was nice to see the names. Great video as always. Keep up the great work and please be safe. (Troy you are a lucky man)

Great to see that the reef’s looking so healthy, loved Yeppoon must pay a visit one day. Cheers

Nice to see Chef Troy at it. Looking forward to a meal together when we get out there. Fun vid! THANKS!

Excellent video again, like the naming of the wild life and the fish


Seems you need more Coconut milk....

Loved the

'Locker Mining'...

Another great video to wake up to, sets up my mood for the day. Thank you for sharing


Another great video nice footage of the reef your fins are long

Thank you so much for the starring credits,


Such a lovely channel. Well done mates! Thank you.

You've changed RJ

Thy spice rack runneth over

thanks for introducing the cast.

Really enjoyed the music. Thanks again. Be safe.

Nicely produced!!

ha ha locker mining ...priceless mate

What great vision .. could sit here all day watching the reef swim by .....Thank You !

Terrific episode - Love the credits!

@ 14:49 Pascale: And I shouldn't be playing with my cutlery. Mum would get mad." No matter how old we are, mom (mum) is still in our heads. Love it!

I am happy I didn't take up your time but disappointed I couldn't find the time to catch up. See you next time in the next location. Your pal, Dave

Till then mate

Whatchoo talkin bout Willis?

Liked the cast credits, cause I know some of the fish, but not all. It's been years since we have been around Yepoon, and Rosslyn Bay, but would love to go back. My wife of 41 years, Lois, lived in Gladstone before we married, so Keppel was a day trip. Looking forward to meeting up with you when you get down to our area, the Hunter Valley, either Port Stephens, Newcastle, or Lake Macquarie. Please let us know on Patreon when you expect to be here.

We will definitely make a post on Patreon for a catch up next stop- should be in your part of the world.

How's those Barramundi Cod? Delightful little creatures.

Ha ha ha - SCRATCH ALL MY PREVIOUS COMMENTS!!! (Great minds think alike! If only I’d watched ‘til the end credits!) A HUGE THANK-YOU FOR DOING THAT, IT TRULY ISVERY MUCH APPRECIATED! :-D

(@17:15) The loud mouthed greedy shit-hawk! (AKA Pacific Silver Gull)

Ahh, saw the Barra shaped spotted fish again (@6:15-6:30)

(@6:05) swimming L-R, Coral Trout?

(@5:26) Spangled Emperor? (Sweetlip?)

Hey guys! I’m enjoying your episodes immensely and have a suggestion for future episodes. This episode is making me realise there are a LOT of fish species that I’m either unsure of, or just plain and simply unfamiliar with. It would mean a lot I’m sure not just to me, but a lot of your viewers, if you could identify the different species of tropical fish that appear in each episode. (@4:00) There is what appears to be a Barramundi shaped spotted fish, swimming besides what appears to be a Honeycomb Cod. In your editing, if you could point to various fish and subtitle their names, that would be awesome! Thanks guys, have subbed and given the thumbs up to this and all previously viewed episodes! Cheers, from Mike in Sydney :-)

WOW - excellent ep guys. Your underwater shots and editing skills are v cool. And, thanks for the fish ID at the end. The rock at Rosslyn has an amazing structure up close. Safe travels.

Very creative! Thx!


Very Good video with superb editing and music. Thank You for bringing us along. : )

Your dinghy is amasing

Still holding up after 5 years abuse!

Absolutely *love* the credits!

Home from work, crack a cold one and watch the latest Free Range Sailing vid. Bloody perfect.

You two make a great team. I have that same little pressure cooker.

Simply outstanding! Simply the best aerial overwater footage and perfectly assembled with excellent music! And, you got Troy to cook! Seriously, you make my week!

Great job! Never miss a video. Much love from landlocked Tennessee! "That's delicious"!

The “Blue Moon” has risen

windage I think Troy cooked over a fire in the Kimberley around episode 8 this is episode 101 - so it’s more a blue eclipse than a blue moon

wonder if that is how often Troy does the meal cooking...

Great episode

I'm pretty sure that's nowhere near enough chocolate! Great video, as always!

that recipe goes very close to my interpretation where I throw in some garam marsala, fake curry powder and just enough cayenne or chilli that nobody can taste anything else anyway.. goes down a treat.

Love the credits!

Options:) We Yanks call it opportunity:) love guys!

Bigger boat needed ?

Start again yip yip yip yippee yipoon ?

Yip yip yip yip yip On??

Good vid ya'll, have ya'll ever met up with catamaran IMPI? Thanks.

No, only Sarean crew as far as vloggers go.

Bloody flash shirt Troy, if your anything like me you can only wear it for 5 min and then have to put it back in the cupboard so it doesnt get grease on it! Killer episode, the editing is top shelf. Its starting to get that doco feel :)

Now you guys are just showing off!!. I give it 5 stars. Absolutely Luved it!!!

Excellent as usual!!!

Butt plug! Ha! It's funny how things get names. We have plenty of items in our house which have nicknames too. I don't know why we do this but it's humorous!

'Locker Mining', LMAO! I used to have to do that in the HOUSE. Why I got a divorce, matter of fact, LOL. Boats MUCH easier to Find Stuff on....Yay! The Cast List! Pater Jokus?! Well, I guess that's better than COYOTE-Appetitus Horribilis.... MEEP! MEEP!

have freckles,,that fish was groovy kewl ~~~~~~ ) ~~~~~~~~~~~ be well skippers

Beautiful editing. A bit of a step above and the fish name tutorial is cool.

I always get to the end of your videos with a smile on my face. See you next time from Wanto be a Salty Sailor.

Nice underwater closeups, guys and I love the naming at the end. That dinner Troy cooked seemed like a ton of carbs. Be careful guys. :| :-) :-) Really nice guy to help out with the laundry. People are generally good where ever one travels.

Truly love your video.  The fish and turtles in the video were  wonderful.  Also,did not know Troy was a chef!

Delightful. Absolutely delightful. Like no other.

You upped your game with this video. Clean and tight editing. Did you get new cameras for photography is so much better?  The ending is a great new style. I had a great teacher once said review your work keep what you like dump what you don't and your personal style will slowly emerge. I think you are doing that well.

Great underwater footage and loved the credits at the end.

You'v had the foresight and capability to live a life other people dream about, without !Big Bucks!

A Captain's cookbook coming soon? :D

It'd be light reading my friend

Awesome video as always, lol if yall are ever in the Galax, Virginia area we will let you wash clothes at my house. Even cook some ribeye steaks and baked potatoes. Just dock in Va. Beach and rent a car and drive about 350 miles to my house in the Blue Ridge mountains...Love your videos...

At 4:41, watching a sea turtle swimming down I became curious about how long they can stay underwater. says several hours depending on activity level. You have a successful channel when you inspire others to learn more.

12:38 just crazy... here I keep thinking that I should be getting a 38-42 footer and you got the little missile, rocking away. That box is to keep you away from the chocolate Thank you for these videos. I look forward to them while I’m out on the road working, which is most of the year. Not sure if you know of Fishermen’s life but here ya go. Just a simple diy video to make crab snares, he believes are better than store bought. He has great channel, probably loves fish as much as the two of you. li I’d also like to recommend if you not come across this yourselfs.

How good is Yeppoon and the Keppels ........ and the best beef - CCYC is an awesome yacht club too!!!

13:24 looks like a bomb went off inside future Gene's cabin, and oh btw, talcum powder works just fine as a thickener and on an upside, if you ever have to sand it later it smells nice : )

Oh, that lovely infinity pool in Yeppoon, a real gem on the coast! Thumb up for the 80-90% chocolate. BTW, they have a free laundry/shower in Yeppoon village near the library.

Chief that a first...? The underwater videos are Awesome....

Pater jokus! Dad jokes! :D

That's awesome you identified most of the fish you filmed! But which ones are edible if any? Maybe a separate video with many more fish that are goid and safe to eat is in order! Cooking suggestions too. Is there an interest from others in this ?

Most fish except toadfish and a very few others are edible. We have left the reef behind us so you might be stuck with the usual fish ID books out there i'm afraid.

Beautiful reef and wonderful videography as always!

Great vid. I was hoping you would do the fish thing at the end as I was curious about that Barra Cod. Never heard of them. They must be great eating. I Lol'd @ Pater Jokus and Laughs Alotus. Funny stuff. cheers.

They are protected in QLD but yes, very tasty- like most cod.


You guys are definitely my secret escape. Love it when it pops up on my notifications. I find a quiet place, plug in my earphones and I’m suddenly aboard your boat the other side of the world. Please keep it up.

Be careful, Pascal, guard those chocolate bars with your life !!!

You should have more viewers. Great content! Good name for a pub, “The Swedish Ghee”.

etejour belle courage amigo capetin Nice

There's always one gull who pulls the gammy leg trick to get extra treats!!

lol, Troy the chef. I'm still watching all your previous videos.

Asafoetida and quinoa, crikey!

Thanks for identifying the fish. Being from the mid-day in the US I have no idea what most species are, especially the ones native to your area.

Beautiful stars of this episode., t care guys

Your underwater footage is off the chain. I really enjoyed this episode. You made my day ... thank you.....❤

Brilliant video.

Wonderful video. Do you make your own ghee?


Love this episode. The starring credits was great;-) You can see that Coral trout is a good eating fish. But when you served up that Swedish dish, you threw me sidevise. As a Norwegian I should hav reconiced it. A sweet Sweed it was. Have fun and fair winds ,,,/),,,,

You make my day. I watch it twice. Jakez from France.

Good job. Another excellent video. You guys have really outdone yourselves editing this time . I really enjoy the underwater view of the fish where you put the names with the fish. Excellent it's makes it so much fun to reverence of fish in the water with the name it you keep using when you're catching or talking about Them. One of these days you're going to have to consider putting together a cookbook. I think Stocking a pantry the way you do And then being able to cook from it Would be an interesting cook book to read . Keep up The Fabulou's work I really enjoy it . I realize all of this is a lot of effort to put together but I will tell you that I truly look forward to being able to watch these videos.

Indian/Swedish fusion! LOL

You guys are getting much better! Good on ya mates !

does the tide drop that much each day that the boats are sitting on dirt?

Great vision, equal soundtrack, thanks for the the quality vlog. You have become very good at making these television packages. Well done and thanks

Really love the sped up footage of you guys doing every day things like the food stores and boat deploying. It gives a good idea of how seasoned travelers get it done. Thanks for the hours and hours of awesome videos!

You guys are

Tumeric(sic): Even in Oz people say and write tumeric(sic) when the correct name is TURMERIC. Why is that?

Thank You, I was just about to google that speckled fish (Barramundi Cod) are they tasty Troy?

Blue Moon design is a great little pocket ship

Episodes like this are once in a blue moon ;)

No not fish again, looks great. Cheers

Top video, thumps up!

Can you even order "please freeze stuff for xy days before delivery" online

✌️Wahoo✌️ - And I do not mean 'Acanthocybium Solandri'

The underwater footage and handpan music was amazing together!

Day late but I'll ask anyway. Seems in most of your underwater and drone shots a lot of the coral is badly bleached and I would like to know your thoughts on the matter. If no response I'll ask at next live stream. You guys ROCK!

Hi Troy and Pascale,I reckon that wind died out in a perfect snorkeling spot,don’t you agree,and when it was time to set sail again,it looked like a fun time.Some of the simplest meals are the ones I enjoy the most,fancy meals don’t get my attention.All the best

Damn straight...nice guy...but he's a disaster looking for a place to happen.

Ahh crap. You beat me to it.

They plan to, preferably before attempting longer trips away from Australia. Just needs a few more Patreons...

Good one.

Absolutely. When we were watching the fish on the reef, I thought that's a pity, I would have liked to have been told what these are... He's ahead of us!

Locker Mining. Ha ha, that's great. Living in my van was the same. My boat will be more dry bag mining. Oh, the music was my kind of vibration. Lovely selection.

Well, you guys outdid yourselves again! Loved the drone footage with the cutaway to the underrwater footage from the same location - that's proper professional stuff! Quick question about your Porta-bote: I notice that you have a piece of rope pulling the sides of the bow together. What's that about?

Lift harness/ anchor attachment.

great use of music every time. way to go Pascale, that is not so common on YT

Love you two! I really liked the overdub of all the fish names in your recent video but the cast credits are just as good. Especially liked Troy's Latin name :-) Fair winds and following seas to you. Sail on!

Always dodgy going up when it's dark.

That was pure fun! Thank you both :-)

Yeppoon looks lovely!

i love you really but, what's your skills with a ocean cross, or a real off shore sailling. like... new zelland !?!?.....

Done Singapore to Rio via cape town in winter. It was easier.

I love the intros of the staring members in the videos. Super great job. I would love to suggest a song. The link on Spotify is . It is a pretty cool song from the 90's.

Yep. It happens in a lot of places around the world.

A mystery

Yes but protected species in QLD

Might be pushing it.

We don't think it is so I don't know how to answer you.

Another great video. You guys live off the ocean and I've heard of Ciguatera as I research in the hopes of cruising myself. How do you deal with this potential threat as I see you guys get majority of your fish from spearfishing along reefs?

@Free Range Sailing Awesome. Thank you for the reply and I'll keep a look out for the Q&A.

We talk about it in the latest live chat, its coming up in our next FAQ and also remember that with regards reef fish- if its as long as your arm, it may do you harm. We pick reef fish above legal size but still fits between wrist and shoulder.

Extra educational ending much appreciaded :)

Always always awesome .....

loved how u added the fish id at the end :) thank you :)

Brilliant focus. Thanks.

Loved it when you named all the characters!

Cheers Roy

Hi guys,normally like your content very informative  and interesting I am disappointed to see you recommending  services marinas and restaurant's for your own benefit people like your content because it is not commercial . I work for the marina mentioned they do not usually allow un insured boats to  berth .

Amazing underwater and general scenes, yummy Potatoes and funny cooking Sailor Cook ;)

Wrong. We're promoting Capricornia (and the whole of Australia) because we feel it has a lot to offer. We like Yeppoon and the people and want the best for them. We signed the paperwork at the marina and their T&C's state that they will accept the level of insurance at their discretion. We went out of our way to visit Yeppoon, like Rocky to get people to visit and spend their money in your region. If that disappointed you we'll be consoled by the people who are thrilled by what we are trying to do for them.

And there's our cat - domesticus pesticus

So loving the wildlife credits. I was particularly wondering about the gulls. Beautiful bird we don’t have in California.

Loved the ending credits!

Really quite surprised you two don't have a million subscribers. Nice work all the way around. Thanks for sharing.
