Re: Sailing video bloggers getting a bit too dramatic?
There is no way I would want to do what they are doing - I would have 0 interest in videoing my on-board life or adventures. While my daysailing in Florida would bore people to tears - I do ride my moto in Colombia - the vistas and things I see would be much more interesting - but I have no interest in taking the time to shoot video of the ride - a few pics and and maybe a short video of a town square of about 15 seconds but that would be it. But then the younger generation is different - they video or take photos of their most mundane things in life and post on FB or Snapchap/instagram - and their friends seem to enjoy it.
And just to be transparent I do like:
Untie the lines - lots of time in Panama and some in Colombian waters - areas I know.
MJ sailing - over 500 days working on their boat in Indiantown Florida - yikes.
Adventures of an old Seadog - reminds me of a friend of mine.
Maybe I am just jealous - being in banking no one wants to see a video of my daily life. ( thank goodness for a very liberal vacation policy)
