Online sailing sensations, Elayna Carausu and Riley Whitelum (a.k.a. Sailing La Vagabonde), will be flying into the UK to exclusively appear at the London Boat Show, sharing the secrets behind their fame and sailing adventures. 

As YouTube’s most famous sailing couple, the Australian pair have racked up a global audience of over 350,000 subscribers. Despite no previous sailing experience, they have documented their journey travelling over 41,000 nautical miles since late 2014.  

In that time, the duo have crossed the Mediterranean, Atlantic, Caribbean and Pacific Ocean and suffered terrifying storms, pirate scares, financial breakdowns, equipment failures, water shortages and other ‘interesting’ mishaps. 

On appearing at the Show, Elayna and Riley, comments: “This will be the first time we have visited the London Boat Show and we are delighted to be able to share tales of our journeys with plenty of new faces from across the thousands of visitors. Starting our adventure as sailing newbies, we have an array of tips and interesting stories to share with others looking to take on a new hobby, or even challenge, in the New Year.” 

Visitors will be able to meet and hear from Elayna and Riley on Thursday 11 January 2017, between 12:00-12:30 and 13:30-14:00 at the Show’s Legends Theatre. 

Back for its 64th year, the London Boat Show returns 10-14 January 2018 celebrating everything you can do and enjoy on the water. Bringing a world of inspiration, stunning yachts and on-water experiences visitors will be treated to five days of the very latest in the boating world.
