Video of Matt Rutherfords Chesapeake Arrival

Hi

I am sure many of you have heard of Matt Rutherford's amazing voyage around all the Americas - Solo, non-stop on on his vintage Vega 27. He is helping raise funds for our favorite group of sailors with disabilities, CRAB. We are involved from afar, (currently at our homebase in New Zealand). Matt is expected to cross his outbound track within the next two or three days and we are wondering if any of you who live on the lower Chesapeake have a video camera and might be going out to greet him. Reason, Tory Salvia of TheSailingChannel.tv has volunteered to make a short video to help CRAB and Matt. Any extra video shots would help them produce something extra nice.

thanks in advance if you can help. You can contact us through our website, Sailing Blog | Nautical Book Authors | Lin & Larry Pardey

I reprinted your post over in the "Cruising Anarchy" section of the Sailing Anarchy website, as it looks like several posters there are planning to be on scene to welcome Matt and his veteran Albin Vega.

Best wishes from New Orleans.

We are planning to sail out to meet him further up the Bay - Before he gets to Annapolis but after he will have crossed his outbound track.

Re: Video of Matt Rutherfords Chesapeake Arrival

Thanks to you guys. Good news is the senator from Iowa (can't recall his name) who is sponsoring a bill to assist those with disabilities has come on board and is speaking about Matt right on the senate floor. Also just learned Gary Jobson has returned from overseas and will be MC for the arrival in Annapolis. wish we could be there ourselves, but we won't be in Annapolis until September/October when we'll be working with CRAB at the boatshow. Sure hope Matt's hand has recovered from all the handshaking by then, so we can shake it again.

Re: Video of Matt Rutherfords Chesapeake Arrival

I've been planning on meeting him down around Solomons, but he looks ahead of schedule. I'm not sure how long I can jerk my employer around with this.

If I can get out to meet him, I will, and I'll do my best to take some video.

Cool - Hope to get out myself, to help bring him home, but again I'm near Annapolis... where there will surely be plenty of coverage. But if you want footage from Annapolis, I can shoot some 1080p.
