When we were dreaming of heading off into the sunset, we were reading every cruising and sailing book we could get our hands on. We learned a lot from all of them.
We also bought VHS video tapes of any sailing or cruising subjects we could find. We relished each and every video. Every one of them had us dreaming of far off places, these videos kept the fires of our imagination burning brightly.
After Guenevere adopted us, and we were getting closer to actually heading off ourselves, we noticed the one reoccurring problem that kept bothering us about the videos. It was that they only gave us snippets of the cruising life style. We certainly understood the problem. It's impossible to condense 2 or more years into a 90 minute or so video. What we were seeing was VERY condensed. What got left out, was the real day to day activity in favor of the general overall voyage. We soon realized we were not seeing any information on bad weather, rainy days, the very challenging times. No one seemed to motor at all?
When we decided to send video to our family and friends, we wanted them to see not only the great times, but to know we also had some challenging times. After all, despite all of the talk, it's not ALL sunshine and margaritas out here!
After making a video for our family, a friend suggested we should make them available to a much wider audience. What an idea! And so you are now able to view them also.
We decided, our videos would be a more realistic look at what our cruising experience is like. Our videos don't chronicle an epic, around the world adventure. They split our cruising into shorter legs, the actual way a lot of cruisers approach cruising. By approaching it this way, we show a much truer view of day to day life aboard a cruising sail boat. And, as a bonus, we get to share some of the highlights of the areas we visit.
Each video shows our way of life aboard and details not shown in more generalized, far reaching videos. Our videos start at nautical mile 0 of our cruising adventure. You see the wonderful sights and events, just as we saw them. We also talk about mistakes we made along the way. These videos show our learning process.
We believe these videos will certainly be of interest to any cruisers planning to visit these areas. We also think they will be of interest to anyone who might be visiting the area by any means. Even people who like to travel vicariously will find enjoyment in them.
We are NOT expert cruisers and these are not "how to" cruising videos. They only show how and where we have chosen to cruise.By “multimedia” we mean they contain video, and may contain still photos, original sound, and at times a narration and/or sound track (music), that we have added to make it more interesting. We have taken every opportunity, and every resource available to us to make them as interesting and fact filled as we can.
