if you have a video camera just remember that the story can be told in 3 or 4 minutes, whatever the story is.

Leaving dock blowing kiss to mum / getting underway / exiting harbour 3 minutes
Climbing the mast and playing with =the sail is one story. 3 mins
In the Galley preparing dinner and serving it / crew eating 3 minutes
Sleeping arrangement 3 mins
Being on watch 3 mins incl dolphin footage
some drama/emergency etc 3 mins
what the engine room does 3 mins
arriving home/ waving good buy to ship 3 mins

And thats your whole TV commercial half hour program. thats what people are used to watching.

if you are really good you can do it in 60 second segments.

of all my videos on Youtube onely one is 4;15 the rest are shorter... some only just above 1 minute. even then some may think they are boring!

So if you buy a Hero camera EDIT!!!!!!!!!!!!

And Casey Edit the previous posters post!
Went to your web site looking for your videos, but could not find. There were however a lot of pics of beuatiful people and not so much of actual sailing. How about some more pics of sailing in some extreme conditions. Must have had a lot on a circumnavigation.
