Great video,I am a new come'r here,,but I am amazed that none of the children are wearing any safety vests,,no matter how calm the sea is, or how experienced the skipper is,,there is always the danger there.

Well done Giu... very well done...

I noticed you cut the shot of the knot meter very short...so we can't see that the kids are actually getting more speed out of the boat than you do... since we know they are better at trimming the sails than you.

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.

As for safety gear... I don't see that as a problem. The kids in the video are all accomplished sailors as I understand it, the conditions are relatively mild—about 12 knots or so with relatively flat seas...and the boat is a 42' LOA by 14' Beam boat... The kids, if they're anything like Fred, one of the two in the video, have been sailing since they were four or so, and are more than comfortable on a boat.

I'm sure that they have all the gear necessary, if the conditions were to worsen and require it... and there are at least two very competent sailors aboard during that video. BTW, if you've watched any of his other videos, you'll see that the kids are wearing safety gear when appropriate. I seriously doubt that Giu is going to risk his wife's wrath and put either his kids or nephews or their friends at risk.

As a newcomer, it may be relatively easy to jump all over a very accomplished skipper, who shares his love for sailing with the kids in his life...but I really don't recommend it. Gui is far more responsible than that... if the kids were less experienced, or the conditions worse, I'm sure that Gui would have those kids suiting up in PFDs or PFDs, harnesses and tethers, as needed. As it is, those kids may have more time aboard a sailboat than many of the adults here on sailnet.

Excellent video Alex. Good choice of music too. I was going to show it to my 7 yr old but then I'd have to explain what a "bastard" is.

The message was also well recieved.

While we all are guilty of showing anyone who will look pictures or snapshots of our children, Alex shamelessly tries to hide that fact with a sailing video !!!!! You have to take your hat off to the guy. If U tube was only around when my kids were small .....
