Vidoes to watch?

For the last year or so I've been watching the voyages of "Lealea" on You Tube. Chuck and Laura Rose provide video of that daily life of sailing, troubleshooting and cooking as they sail the Pacific.This has actually given us the inspiration to buy a sailboat and start sailing.
Does anyone know of any other You Tube videos that offer similar experiences sailing in a smaller vessel like Lealea? I know when you google, a whole bunch appear but nothing like theirs.
Cheers,

Ron

Check out drakeParagon (https://www.youtube.com/user/drakeParagon) He has some good videos of his own sailing, and has been doing interviews with other sailors. Not so much action in the interviews, but entertaining and good info anyway. Good stuff, I enjoy them.

After seeing that, do you need more?

A worth while video is:

Episode 1 and 3 are as entertaining.

Re: Vidoes to watch?

I'm a real fan of Dylan Winter's "Keep Turning Left" but that is not really a typical cruising story.

Keep Turning Left

Vega otoh most definitely is. Was recommended by DW last week some time. Vega is a long time SailNutter.

Re: Vidoes to watch?

In addition to the ones mentioned above, you might also enjoy these:

Big Oceans Voyage - Some good solo cruising/trans-Atlantic videos

Video logs of s/v Delos - Logs of some youngsters enjoying a cruise across the Pacific

sethhynes's channel - YouTube - Some really good cruising life videos, particularly if you start with some of the older ones and follow their journey through the Caribbean and across the Pacific

Bristol Channel Cutter JUNESSA - YouTube - Rick has some great videos (nice editing) of his Alaska cruising adventures

richardtrawick - YouTube - More good Vega ocean voyaging videos

And finally, here's one of my favorites. Start with Passage 1 and follow the video series through Passage 4 for a good look at sailing from Washington State to the S. Pacific:

Catalina 34
