Aerial Tour of the Öxarárfoss Waterfall in Ţingvellir National Park, Iceland

I know it's not really a 'cruising/sailing video' but we did sail all the way here to Iceland to see this place and it's a part of our story. Thanks for sailing (and flying) with us! - Drake and Mo

Anchored in Norfolk, VA

We anchored in Norfolk, VA just outside of Tidewater marina for 2 nights to rest and provision before continuing north.

Re: Paragon's North Atlantic Adventure

Nice tease for the offshore vid!! The period of those waves looks a bit tight. Had to be a tough beat. Can't wait to find out.

Sailing from Norfolk to Atlantic City in heavy weather

We were under pressure to get our crew Adam to his return flight in NYC. We pushed off from Norfolk, VA with a less than ideal weather forecast and ended up hove to for 36 hours off the New Jersey coast.

Re: Paragon's North Atlantic Adventure

The real cruising life!

Looked like a rough one. Poor Mo. Nothing worse. Seems to be a trooper though, since she's made it to Iceland.

Great documentary. Thanks for sharing. We just launched and I really need to get out there.

Re: Paragon's North Atlantic Adventure

Keep up the good work Drake. I just discovered how to watch YouTube on my big screen tv and now watching your videos is like watching a mini-series. The production value of your latest vids are excellent.

Anchored in Atlantic City, New Jersey

While spending 3 days at anchor in Atlantic City, we fixed the windlass, worked on our solar panel installation, and spent a whole day on anchor watch in a storm.

Re: Paragon's North Atlantic Adventure

Hard to believe these were shot a year ago. Thanks for taking us along.

I stumbled upon a spin-off, btw. Found Adam's vid of his NC-NY solo sail. I knew I liked that guy, seeing him on his last day in the Army. I was going to post it, but thought I wouldn't set your thread off track and leave that up to you.

Re: Paragon's North Atlantic Adventure

Awesome stuff.

I encourage people to donate to Drake through the paypal button on his youtube site. These videos are worth the money.
