It’s not every day you get to sail a world-famous, Nobel Prize-nominated, teen activist throughout the seas on your luxury yacht.

That’s precisely what Australian couple Elayna Carausu and Riley Whitelum did with their team in December, sailing 3200 nautical miles throughout the Atlantic Ocean to Lisbon, Portugal with Greta Thunberg and her dad.

And now, there’s a video of the trip.

Carausu and Whitelum have been sailing on their vessel, La Vagabonde, and YouTubing their adventures on the seas for five years, but this was an especially prominent task.

When first invited to speak at the U.N. Climate Action Top in New York City in September, Thunberg notoriously dumped aircrafts and instead sailed for 2 weeks throughout the Atlantic Ocean in a zero-emissions sailboat, the Malizia II, to demonstrably minimize her carbon footprint.

Then, invited to speak at POLICE OFFICER25, Thunberg put out the call on Twitter for a lift back across the Atlantic when the area moved from Chile’s capital Santiago to Madrid due to civil discontent— and Whitelum and Carausu responded to the call with La Vagabonde.

More videos will be launched on the set’s YouTube page “during the following weeks” according to a tweet by Thunberg The first video information how the journey came together, lets you poke around the sleeping quarters and innards of the boat, take part preparations and security instructions, and discover how they even linked up with Thunberg in the first location.
