Fred sailing Giulietta

Finally I managed to upload the video we shot yesterday.

I have many form today I am uploadiong now.

The video bellow shows Fred and his best freind (my pupils) sailing Giulietta on their own. I am proud.

By the way, when you hear Fred yell "bordo", that means tack in Portuguese.

Watch carefully as he tacks without ever stopping the boat, I help here and there to reduce weather helm. The you will see how the kids accelerate the boat.

These boys make me proud, they can sail on their own. Both just turned 10

I have more videos but its taking forever to upload, they will be posted as I can.

Thanks for watching, and please remember, their're only kids, watch your remarks...

Thanks

Alex



edit:

Added the 3 videos bellow here.

As usual, the crew is doing all the work!
The little friend is working hard!
"Bordo!"

Great Video Gui! Fred and his cohort do an awesome job. They may only be ten but they sure seem to have a good grasp of what they are doing. One spot in the video seemed to have ALOT of heel...I had to grab my chair to keep from going over!

Think I could hire them to give my wife lessons? Goodness knows she won't listen to me...and I don't know why because I sure yell loud enough .

THAT IS SOOO COOL! Now, you kids listen to your dad. He's one of the best, but mark my words, the day WILL come when you'll show him a thing or two about fast sailing! Best to all on that side!

One word: Lucky

I'll show this to my kids later and we'll see if they fall over while watching.

Life is an adventure so get on with it.

Guys, He will love to read your remarks tomorrow..

By the way I edited the original post and added 3 more videos there.

If you don't want to go back to see them they're here..

enjoy

Added the 3 videos bellow here.

On the first video you can see fred holding the bow slightly into the wind to allow the genoa to flap so his friend has the power to sheet it in...a weak man's technique. "stretch her while she flaps"...I taught him that...ehehe
