I love it when you get the sounds overlaid with the music in some of these and the volumes are about equal... because well, we sail, and to us the sounds a sailing vessel makes are unique and musical as well.

Beautiful craft... oh and I hope your depth gauge isn't working... cause those numbers look pretty [consistently] low.
And this is why I couldn't bring myself to bury them completely.

Re: Solo sailing

Off for some solo sailing this afternoon. Can't imagine not sailing solo. Boat would spend too much time at the dock if I waited for other people. Luckily the dogs are always ready to go at a moments notice.

Excellent choice.
I breathe a sigh of relief when I can hear the water on sailing videos and click off of most sailing videos where the natural sounds are replaced by music (often the horrible and cheap music you find online for free).

Thanks for sharing your videos!

Re: Solo sailing

This isn't a sailboat but it is a contraption that is tied up near my mooring and I see it every day I go out. It's kind of hard to explain lol...

Can't seem to embed now. Don't know why you can't simply use the embed code from the video hosting sight as long as it doesn't contain a script.
Would be a great sight if filled with a bunch of women in skimpy bikinis

Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.

I saw it on the water with him, his wife and 25 girls she works with. It looks like an island lol.

Which drone are you planning to get? I've been flying with a DJI Phantom from the boat under sail and RIB underway for years and love it. But I was surprised as heck when I read this article recently:

The FAA's online registration form goes live on December 21st.
US drone operators must register with the FAA by February
