Equator Crossing Ceremony – Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 36 – Video


Previously on Delos The crew sets sail across the Halmahera Sea, we leave our beloved Raja Ampat in our wake, and have an amazing sail with dolphins! “It’s pretty exciting! Are you ready?”
“Yeah, there’s wine glasses out!” “Are you ready for the ceremony?”
“Yes” “Are you ready to be a shellback?”
“I don’t even know what that means, but yep!” “We’re here, here’s the equator!”
(laughs) “We’re .366 miles south currently” “WOOP WOOP WOOP!” Crossing the equator is a pretty big deal for a sailor It’s an age-old right of passage to help you help promote your fellow ship mates from pollywogs to shellbacks A sort of moral booster and hazing ceremony rolled into one! All sorts of devious acts have been trumped up to appease the mighty Neptune. Brady and I had already crossed this magical line sailing into French Polynesia a few years back. Neptune forgave us for our transgressions and it was pretty much our duty to make sure the girls were initiated properly So we decided to put them on trial for the crimes against the sea So we decided to put them on trial for the crimes against the sea “You are hereby commanded to appear before the Royal Court of the Realm of Neptune, in the District of Equatorius… because it has been brought to the attention of His Highness, Neptune Rex through his trusty Shellbacks, that this ship about to enter those waters are manned by a crew who has not acknowledged the sovereignty of the Ruler Of The Deep, and has transgressed on his domain and thereby incurred his Royal displeasure.” “You will most accept heartily and with good grace the pains and penalties of the awful torture that will be inflicted upon you to determine your fitness to be one of our Trusty Shellbacks and answer to the following charges:”
(laughing) “Charge 1: Disregard of the traditions of the sea You have sailed the high seas and bounding main for many weeks, and have failed to appear in person to show allegiance to his Royal Highness, thereby masquerading as a man of the sea, Charge 2: Taking liberties with the piscatorial subjects of His Majesty Neptunus Rex You have taken liberties with the denizens of the Realm of Neptunus Rex, by maliciously removing them from the depths of their recognized habitat. Without permission you have gobbled down your own weight in creatures of the sea. Adding insult to injury without permission you have processed and returned these creatures back to the sea in a less than satisfactory condition.
How do you plead to these crimes?” “Innocent”
“You’re f*cking guilty!” (laughing)
“How do YOU plead to crimes?”
“Innocent” “You’re f*cking guilty also”
“INNOCENT!”
(laughing) “How do you plead to these crimes?”
“Innocent”
“You are ALSO judged as.. GUILTY!”
“You guys are f*cked up!”
“You’re bullsh*t!” (laughing)
“liars..”
“LIARS!” “We are more than them!” “You shall be punished”
“I will not let these people harm you” “To prove your worthiness as Shellbacks, you must complete the following three tasks: Task Number 1: You must crawl around the deck of your ship and grovel..”
“What?”
“Do one at a time”
“What the f*ck is grovel?” (laughing)
“WHAT!!” Number 2! Remove your garments and swim as Neptune intended you to. “No!”
“Number three!” Plead guilty to his majesty and beg forgiveness. “Oh great!” “WE CROSSED IT MATE!” “We just crossed the equator!”
“WOOOOOOOO!!!!” “000010…”
(laughing) “Hang on..”
“North!” “We’re in the Northern Hemisphere!” We hoved to by back-winding our genoa, basically parking Delos right on the equator so the ceremony could begin!” “The last port was Sorong.. and I have 500 Rupiah, which is probably like 5 cents or something ridiculous! But I am poor! But I will still give to Neptune because I’m thankful for all that he has given me”
(laughing) “And now a shot of our finest scotch on board!” “It’s homebrewed from his water! Back to Neptune” “NEPTUNE!” “Thank you!!”
(clapping)
“NEPTUNE WOOP WOOP WOOP!” With the formalities out of the way, it was time to move on to faze two.. First order of business.. celebration drinks! Second order of business.. Let the punishment begin! “ROAR!!!”
(laughing) “OWW!!”
“There you go!” “On your hands and knee’s pollywog!”
“That’s sick!”
(laughing) “Ewwww!”
(laughing) “AHHHHHH!!!” “HEY!” “No!”
(laughing)
“CRAWL! CRAWL!” “HEH..”
(laughing) “AND CRAWL!”
(laughing) “Ew, this sh*ts in my mouth man!” “F*ck it stinks real bad!” (laughing) (spits)
“Ew…” (coughs) “Oh, you guys did good” “Let’s go! This is NOT pleasure swim! “My lord!”
(laughing) “Beg for forgiveness!”
“PLEASE FORGIVE ME OF MY SINS!”
“You have done well my child you are forgiven!”
“Thank you my grace!”
(laughing) “You are forgiven!” Now that the girls were fully fledged shellbacks, they were fully within the rights to turn the tables (laughing)
“NO!!!”
“Josje help!” “Oh no!”
“Help me!” “Hey, I don’t wanna mess with Neptune man!”
“COME ON JOSJE, HELP ME “OW! She’s biting me! That’s no way to treat Neptune!”
(laughing) “Josje! Help!”

“First sunset in the Northern Hemisphere!” “after crossing the equator”
“We’re celebrating with a victory dance” “How do you feel?”
“It’s like f*cking stuck on the rails.. look at that.. it look’s like snot”
“How do you feel?”
“Oh yeah.. I’ve been in the Northern Hemisphere for 99% of my life and I’m back!”
“have you ever sailed across the equator?” “No.. I would say no”
