Sailing video

I shot this today. It was a beautiful day I sailed about four hours or so.

I'm new to shooting and editing video, and to YouTube. So, any comments are welcome, both on my video, and sailing.

Thanks for watching

Edit: I guess I should tell you a little about the conditions. The lake is low, so navigating the shallow water is somewhat challenging. The Corp of Engineers does a fair job of marking the shallow water, but not great. The wind was about 8 kts or so to start. By the time I left it was up to 15 or so. I kept a pretty steady pace of 6 kts or so. I only saw one other sail boat out today. Lots of bass boats.

Thanks for the lift. I went out and looked at my boat, under 2 inches of fresh snow in the driveway. I hear it will be up to 38 tomorrow. Good day to you.

Thanks for the vid. Now, while I look out my window at the cold weather (high of 3deg. F today) I will have to add you to the ever growing list of those that SUCK!

From my standpoint, as a producer/director, I always want to know if a video has met its goals and objectives. In the case of this video you shot, if your goal was to show a wonderful winter afternoon of sailing on a lake - then you have succeeded! Looks like you had a lot of fun.

Now, if one of your objectives was to make other SailNetters who are cooped up indoors with their boats on the hard waiting for spring extremely jealous... Success again!
