Eight knots is not all that impressive, when you've been doing 12+.

See this video.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Avazquez-

Those are 5-7' waves in the video... wind is about 20–25 knots.

Been out in worse.... like 7–9' waves a while back and still managed to do over 9 knots with just the main double reefed with it blowing about 25-30 knots that day.

Nice video and editing AVasq!
We have wonderful memories of our time in PR...particularly Ponce where everyone was so friendly...but you can't beat the east coast/ Culbra etc. for sailing!

Thanks...Camaraderie....

Last Friday we sailed from Fajardo to Culebra on a very windy day with waves 7ft+/-. It was really great to feel the beauty of the waves, wind and the scenery of Vieques, Culebra and Puerto Rico. We spent the weekend hanging around Culebra and actually left our boat in Ensenada Honda in Culebra and came back to Puerto Rico...in a friends powerboat but will go back Thursday for more sailing. I keep my boat in Palmas del Mar, Humacao PR.

Nice video btw... what hardware and software are you using for editing?? Also, what camcorder are you using? Are you using a steadicam rig of any sort??

I just ordered a waterproof housing for the Sony MiniDV camcorders I use. It should help quite a bit...since water won't be as much of a worry then.

I had a dream, I was sailing, I was happy, I was even smiling. Then I looked down and saw that I was on a multi-hull and woke up suddenly in a cold sweat.

Software - Windows Moviemaker
Camera - Digital canon camera....dont know the model but its not a fancy one.
No steadicam rig ...just my hands and a lot of stumbling around....
