I just made a video on sailing in the British Virgin Islands HD
 
Hi! I just wanted to share a short HD video on the British Virgin Islands that I just finished.

British Virgin Islands HD "Voyage BVI"
youtube.com/watch?v=L2HXlcgfwKc&hd=1

I tried to capture the various iconic locations and the essence of sailing. This was filmed just last week! Comments and critique welcome, cheers.

Wow! Very well done! I'm guessing you are a pro? If not, you should be! Nice job!

Terrific Job. I swear once I leave I am not coming back.

Not a single boat sailing. The essence of sailing? Nice travelogue. Maybe the cruise ships can use it.

This video was posted on another forum I frequent. It was removed by the moderators as they believed it was too close to a commercial venture not to be a sponsor on that site. The OP and his brother are professionals that have a series of HD vids on their website and Youtube. Google Blue Eden if interested. Astute posters here have correctly observed that this, despite being visually beautiful and professionally edited, has little or nothing to do with sailing. If nothing else it appears to be an advertisement for the Moorings. Hopefully they didn't keep too much of the guys deposit after they wrapped a prop on a mooring ball.

I do not know all of the policies here but I would doubt the OP will be contributing anything to this site in the future other than more videos they have created that have nothing to do with sailing. IMHO the OP is not forthcoming in their purpose, "essence of sailing". Really?

But it was such a motivational video. It said to me "Come! Come here now!"
Motivation is worth something isn't it?

I'm no professional and paid my dues in full to Moorings :) I just have a hobby of photography and sailing!

We got our sails up several times in the video, although with a crew of just 2 in low season we probably didn't raise sails as often as others might. But to me, sailing is more about just moving or raising sails, it's that whole experience of wind and seas. It's perhaps a lot of different things to a lot of people :)

He said: "I tried to capture ... the essence of sailing." That implies to me some sails in the air push/pulling a boat over the water. You can get travelogues for many idyllic places. They just have nothing to do with sailing.
