|July 2008 -

|May 2008 - Sardinia.
Snakes dance the horizontal tango.

Moonstruck Transatlantic, Downwind 8kts with Spinnaker up.
|For anyone that wants to see what life is
like sailing a small boat in the big ocean. |
Perfect sailing weather.
The camera is fixed to the steering pedestal so you can see the horizon appear to yaw as the boat rolls from side to side.
A school of about 50-75 small dolphins swimming in pairs hung around the boat for about 30 minutes. (+/- 60 secs.)
Sailing fast downwind with the spinnaker up. Everyone is relaxed, lovely sailing.
|St Martin, FWI. Sitting in a cafe waiting on
Lauren's flight to land.|
This one is cool - if you haven't seen the planes land in St Martin you should watch it. The islands have pretty short runways and in St Martin the big planes use every inch. The planes land right over the beach (see video above). The planes taking off are less spectacular but more dangerous as the jet blast literally blows people, towels, beach bags, hats and glasses off the beach and into the water. Here's a link to someone else's short (14 secs) video showing what happens to the people on the beach. Air France Taking Off
