Great Sailing Movie...
 
Hey guys,

I took my sister and mother sailing yesterday, and made a really nice movie of it :)

YouTube - Vancouver Spring Sailing

Enjoy! I'm the guy in the yellow jacket and glasses.

Nice video... Damn... that water is flat... not like the day I was out last year... What is the music in the video?? You should also add what kind of boat you're on to the keywords IMHO. Finally, your editing sequence is kind of whacked... you've got the segments in reverse order AFAICT. First is sailing, then you have the genoa unfurling, then you have the main being raised... what's up with that???

I love the part when your mom starts singing Rod Stewart's Sailing... LOL.

Damn beautiful country up there.. tough to screw up the videography with that area as a backdrop. ;)

BTW, it looks like you need to ease the topping lift a bit more when you're sailing, as your mainsail appears to be bagging due to the boom being supported by the topping lift. That'll give you pretty poor sail shape IMHO. You seem to have eased it a bit further into the video though.

I noticed you don't seem to tilt the OB up. Doing that would probably give you a bit more speed, as it seems that it'd be dragging in the water the way it was in the video.

One thing—your mom was wearing a light blue jacket, and had she gone overboard, she would have been pretty tough to spot...since blue is one of the colors that blends in really nicely with the water... If you're going to take her sailing often, get her some bright red or yellow gear to wear. Also, down jackets, and that's what hers looked like, will absorb a lot of water and weigh a ton if they get wet.

You're being way too critical SD ;) . . . I enjoyed the video, well done - in spite of some "wacked" sequences. Based upon the setting sun later in the day and the temporary look to the sail ties, it is possible that they dropped sails in a cove for a while, then sailed away. I do agree though that the jib is normally not unfurled before the main.

The first part of the sound score sounds a lot like the theme from Pirates of The Caribbean. Nice, albeit very cold, daysail Kacper - thanks for sharing.

I want more sailing movies! It's 35F here in Baltimore and I'm ready to run out and get wet and cold on my P26 thanks to you. Happy Easter!

Kacper,
Nicely done, it certainly is beautiful up there in your neck of the woods. Sometimes it's not about the details, neatly flaking the main ext. but more so the time spent with family, making memories and that you certainly have.
Bill,

TB—

I still gave the video four woofs...and a tail wag.. ;) You're probably right about the stop in a cove though...

Nothing wrong with constructive criticism IMHO.

Albie-

BTW, since you asked—try this link. It's from last season though...and the conditions were probably as cool as those Kacper had, but the winds and sea state a bit more lively... However, in fairness to Kacper, the boat I have is a good deal larger than the one he is on—actually would probably dwarf his boat... But not as large as TB Nauticat 33. Size is a relative thing... and boats get bigger exponentially.

Nice video, really gets me even more anxious to get out sailing. We planned to scratch a couple of items off the pre-launch to do list this weekend, but it was cold windy and there was even snow at Deltaville this weekend. Unbelieveable! I hope we can catch up and get launched by the end of the month at the latest. Regardless, we plan to be sailing next weekend training to as pick-up crew with the racing set.

As far as the blue coat, has anyone else noticed that much of the foul weather gear designed for women only comes in colors that would be hard to spot like blue or light green and if they have another color its something like pink? It took us a bit of looking to find foul weather gear that was small enough to fit my wife that came in a high vis red.

Thread hijack! Women's foulies

Yeah, tell me about that. My fingers and toes went numb working on the boat yesterday (Middle River). I hope today's better, but I'll probably fire up the propane heater anyway.

My wife finally found a pretty nice Gore-Tex multi-layer jacket, with back and pit vents and a detachable high-density fleece liner, from Columbia. In this case, it's dark blue - a terrible color. Where did your wife find a good red jacket?

Cheers!

A couple of years ago, I saw some fairly decent Henri Lloyd foul weather gear on clearance at WM. The extra small size was only available in red, and was perfect for several of my relatives, so I bought a bunch of them. The real reason I was buying them was that they were off-shore foulies that had an integrated harness, and I wanted the harnesses... so I gave the jackets to my friends and relatives and kept the harnesses. The jackets were only $26, which is far less expensive than sailing harnesses normally sell for, and the jackets, one of which my aunt, mother and sister each have were essentially free. ;)

BTW, the Henri Lloyd women's gear seems to be geared quite well towards petite women... all of the ones I bought for are in the 5'-5' 5" range and weigh less than 130 lbs, and the extra smalls I bought fit quite well.

I think it is unfortunate that even the sailing specifc gear for women is generally in really unsafe color palettes.

Ya done fine Kacper. The criticism was meant to be constructive, if a little exhaustive! (g) Thanks I enjoyed it. I was gratified to see that even though the music from BraveHeart was playing, it did not presage you losing your head! (G)

Now about that sister...
You will be video taping in the summer won't you, when we can see more of her pretty face, won't you?
