I would like to think of it as a promotion as I didn't have the blessings of the powers to be to create it, but I wanted to do something special for the community.

So if it is an ad I would agure that it is an ad for:

The Mac race
Mackinac Island
Grand Hotel
Pink Pony
Chicago Tourism Board
Fig Films
Erin McDougald
Skimasks
Veuve Clicquot

Why don't you just try to post a link now? When I tried to post this the first time it told me I needed to have 2 posts.....in the rules it says 10.... Why don't you try to repost my link? Just Kidding.

"Bella", you must forgive some of the posters that have commented. We seem to be a grumpy group at times, actually some can be a real pain in the butt. (although so far, they have been fairly cordial) Maybe the really grumpy ones will chime in later.

Welcome to the group, hope to hear more from you.

Well, I always like looking at other boats so I approve this ad/promotion/documentary/whatever.

(not that it matters much)

This post is made from recycled electrons

A ship in harbor is safe, but that's not why ships are built.

Thanks for the video. Always good to see people sailing while awaiting spring to arrive here on the Cheaspeake.

Hang on, this film is also being pimped on HerSailnet as "female-focused."

I don't watch chick flicks.

Well, posting the same film to multiple forums is technically SPAMMING.

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.

I know, I shouldn't take things so personally...

Life is way too short to be so grumpy.

Well, I am a chick and thought that this flick would be interesting to both the general population and the a female-specific forum. If I had posted to the Gear & Maintenance forum where all the action is that would be SPAMMING.
