That sound of the ice sweeping past the hull is incredible.

That was some really beautiful footage. Is he a cinematographer by trade? If not, he should be. Outstanding.

Dylan Winter is/was a BBC journalist. He has a very interesting series on Utube called "keep turning left" where he is sailing around Britain in that boat. It is all similarly excellent. TDW and I had linked to that series previously here.

the rest of the story?

Would like to see more...its hard to explain the intimate feelings you have with solitude or simply being alone, but he does a nice job of showing it.

My formula for living is quite simple. I get up in the morning and I go to bed at night. In between, I occupy myself as best I can.
