Good Sailing DVD

I'm sitting here in New York in February Jonesing for a sail, so I pop in Paul & Sheryl Shard's Transatlantic Crossing DVD. Not new of course, but it really is a very well done piece, as are all the Shards' work IMHO. Great sailing and underwater footage, the commentary is informative and entertaining. A perfect thing for a cold Sunday in February. I highly recommend it.

Now I'm going to get my boys settled, pawn them off on my wife, and head down to the boat to putter until my fingers are numb. (Maybe I'll bring another sailing flick with me and pop it into the DVD player while I conquer something absolutely critical that just can't wait. .)

Speaking of fingers being numb, why is it always colder in the boat then outside ? We're getting wind gust of 40 mph here today, not the best of days to play with the tarps on the boat.

Yeah, we're getting those winds here too, but under the Fairclough cover it's bearable. Particularly after watching a sailing DVD.

Not only do they produce some of the best sailing video made, they are the nicest couple you'll ever meet, too. They are regular contributors to our show, and their stuff is the best we get.

Have you seen some of the other DVDs Paul and Sheryl made? The "Distant Shores" series is wonderfully produced. A little more on the travelouge side of things as they show things to see and do wherever they happen to be in the Med. It's a nice mix though, of great sailing video, the places they visit, and the people they meet. They are, IMHO, excellent story tellers above all else. They just use video to tell their stories...

And, I am completely jealous of them! They just took delivery this year of a brand new Southerly 40 or 42. They are going to bring her back to the Caribbean, and then cruise the eastern seaboard making more TV shows.

I couldn't agree more. I do have their Distant Shores DVD series. I'm waiting for them to come out with something new. Your Latts & Atts TV ain't too shabby either. We don't get it here in NY, but I've seen the DVD's.

Thank you, Daniel. If you didn't already know, the Shards are now shooting in Hi-Def, so their new stuff will probably be even better! I'm definitely looking forward to seeing their shows and videos in HD...

Ya must have a fiberglass boat. Mine's just the opposite, always warmer inside then out.
