Re: Preview - Paragon's North Atlantic Adventure

Love these. The aerial cam was a neat add. Glad you and the crew seem well. Still sorry we missed you when you were in the neighborhood.

Couple of questions, if we can.

Where did crew member #3 join? I thought you set out from New England with just you and Mo.

Why two dinks?

Drake! Thanks for sharing! Whats a growler? Is that Greenland landscape always looked like that or is all the snow now missing from global warming?

Drake,

You really make me want to be out there! Nice job filming for all to see.

Hi Minnewaska, Greetings from Paragon in Reykjavik, Iceland! We docked here yesterday after a hellacious sail from Greenland. Monique and I pushed off from Oriental, North Carolina last March with 1 crew Adam who stayed with us until Atlantic City, NJ. We then daysailed up the coast to Boston. Eanna flew from Dublin to Boston to join us on May 23rd and we are sailing with him all the way to his hometown of Kinsale, Ireland. We generally prefer to use the rowing dinghy to get to shore, and love using it with a sailing rig to explore the various ports. We also have a RIB and plan to use it with a 10hp outboard and 100 gallon water bladder to ferry potable water to Paragon at anchor. We are about to push off for Ireland at the next available weather window where we hope to be allowed to spend the winter repairing the boat and editing our video series. Happy sailing!
Drake

Hi brokesailor, Thanks! Greetings from Paragon just docked in Reykjavik, Iceland, enroute to Ireland. A growler is a small iceberg that rises little above the water. We went through Prins Christian Sund during the 2-3 months of the year that it is navigable without ice. At the end of the timelapse video there's a photo of what the weather station dock in Prins Christian Sund looks like in winter, completely blocked in by ice. Happy sailing, Drake

Big-ass ice cubes and aerial drones?!?!?!?! Wow!!!

Absolutely awesome videos. I can't wait for more.
Thanks smackdaddy! We just arrived in Reykjavik, Iceland after sailing 700+ nautical miles from Greenland, and are about to push off for Ireland. I can't wait to settle down for the Fall/Winter in Ireland or England to start editing the 4+ terabytes of video we've filmed so far! Happy sailing, Drake, Mo and Eanna aboard Paragon

Re: Preview - Paragon's North Atlantic Adventure

Just curious - what are you using for storage of the video?

Hi smackdaddy,

I'm copying the raw video files straight from 128 GB SD cards onto Seagate portable 1.5 TB external USB drives

(
Amazon.com: Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex 1.5 TB USB 3.0 Ultra-Portable External Hard Drive in Black STAA1500100: Electronics Amazon.com: Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex 1.5 TB USB 3.0 Ultra-Portable External Hard Drive in Black STAA1500100: Electronics


)

From there I'm processing the video with Apple's Final Cut Pro X video editing software and in the process backing up those files onto a Drobo 8 TB RAID array.

Amazon.com : Drobo Beyond Raid 4-Bay USB 2.0/FireWire 800 SATA 6GB/S Storage Array with Drobo PC Backup : Electronics Amazon.com : Drobo Beyond Raid 4-Bay USB 2.0/FireWire 800 SATA 6GB/S Storage Array with Drobo PC Backup : Electronics



The Drobo drive has fault tolerance in that if any of the 4 2 TB drives in it fails, then I don't loose any data. I can swap out the bad drive with a new one and rebuild it.

From there I'm backing up everything onto a second mirror Drobo drive.

We better get to Ireland soon because we're almost out of disk space!

Happy sailing!

Drake
