Hey Drake -

Impressive videos you've done. I also watched all 6 parts of this today. Awesome job!

I also liked seeing the rigging for that wishbone boom - it helped me wrap my mind around it.

Good job Drake! Very interesting. The deck video, 20 mins, a tad too long but I watched the whole thing regardless. I sailed with AJ down to St. Martin last Fall. He was telling me all about you!....

Thank you armandolio!

Happy New Year!!!

I'm really excited about our sailing and video producing plans for 2013. I plan to move my Westsail 42 'Paragon' to the anchorage in Oriental, North Carolina at the end of February, and to start sailing north in early March. We'll sail 800+ nautical miles up the coast, stopping in New York City, Newport, and finally Boston. Then I'm planning on sailing offshore to Nova Scotia, Newfoundland, Greenland, Iceland, Faroe, Scotland, and to arrive in Ireland by October 1st.

I will be filming nonstop for the 7 months of the voyage and plan to spend the next 6 months after that in Ireland or England in post production editing of several dozen, or maybe even hundreds of episodes.

I hope that our videos will tell a wonderful, uplifting and riveting story, and that the viewer will feel like they are experiencing the adventure with us.

All the best, happy sailing, and Happy New Year!

Drake
