Keep Turning Left 54 - the Deben is up.... for free

Part one of my film about the River Deben in Suffolk is up on the website

Keep Turning Left

its free

and there are also a few other vlogs added to the youtube space

YouTube - KeepTurningLeft's Channel

I feel that I should apologise for the Gulf Coast incident. As you may know I love the British East Coast with its esturies and salt marshes. It has has many similarities with the American Gulf Coast. Every time I sail I think of what British management has done to a lovely bit of coast.

Dylan

Thanks for the latest installment of 'Keep Turning Left' Dylan, much appreciated.

Well, we won't hold you personally responsible for the gulf incident but we appreciate the thought nonetheless. I sense an opportunity here - the BBC should send you over to document the situation from the perspective of a British sailor / filmmaker / nature-enthusiast! Never let a crisis go to waste, right? The disaster might be a great opportunity for some healthy cross-cultural exchange, and I imagine a small sailboat similar to yours could get into a lot of very interesting places to see how things are affected, how people are coping, and how the clean-up is progressing. We've got quite a group of sailors right here on Sailnet in that neck of the woods that could help get you started. Since this story will play out over time to be a much bigger one than our previous Exxon Valdez spill in Alaska; who do I contact at the BBC to make the request? Cheers for now.

It will Never happen

Its a story that should be told - but it is one that will never be told the way it should be - from water level

certainly there will be hundreds of peices to camera done from the shore - and scores done from the decks of three story mobos

- but not one hack will have the slightest understanding or love of the margin between land and sea

I was described by my bosses at the BBC as a "bit of a loose cannon" -

I am not sure she meant it as any sort of compliment.

.....and if she didn't mean it as a compliment then you should take it as one. This world of ours needs more loose cannons of your quality.

Hack on dear Winter, hack on.

Cheers and thanks for another instalment of the Voyage of the 4 knot shite box.
