Re: Sailing video bloggers getting a bit too dramatic?
I watched their videos when they were on the first boat - a Ericson , thought is was fine, somewhat interesting - figured they returned home and on to real jobs for a while - but no it seems they just got another boat and asking for patrons to support the on going lifestyle - which is fine for some, not something I wish to donate to. Maybe this is a new career for some - sailing around asking for money - I can see it as a short term venture - take a year off and have an adventure - or more if you have the resources - maybe I am just old school - it looks a little too much like begging to me at some point - I understand that some have made their videos basically a commercial channel - not my thing, but others seem to enjoy it so I guess there is a market for it - I wonder when it reaches saturation point?
