Sail away with Alexander!
Video Rating: 4 / 5
After watching the video I read the comments! It’s seems we all agree this
was one of the best sailing videos we’ve seen. But if I had to describe why
…. I would say it’s the narrative! We all dream of solo sailing somewhere
but underneath it all is a longing to find out something about ourselves.
Some of us are afraid that we are as boring and uninteresting as we
suspect! We produce overly hyper videos pretending to have an amazing time
at sea but somehow we (the YouTube community) can see through that! This
video was interesting because YOU seem to be an interesting person.
Beautiful family and a quirky but kind spirit! I hope that’s correct! But I
think that’s why we all like it so much! Thank you Mr. Williams. I was
One day, I will set sail by myself, but first, I will have to sail with a
trained crew. Then with some friends. Then finally by myself. Probably will
be in the far future, since I’m only 18 in college.
I literally sat on the toilet and watched this whole video. I can’t feel my
feet, but well worth the story.
what a succesfull sailing video..amazing trip and loved your dance..
This is fantastic. Very well documented, fun to watch, and I love the fork
on the floor and the burnt toast! 🙂 Awesome! My boyfriend Pete and I have
sailed our 37′ wooden sailboat on an Atlantic circumnavigation. Check out
my channel! Cheers!
I very nicely done half-hour cruising video about single handing. Excellent
camera work and narrative by the skipper. See more cruising adventure and
how-to videos at http://www.thesailingchannel.tv.
What vessel are you in. How much does it cost. How does one learn to sail.
Отличное видео! Смотрите все, кто любит паруса и море. Автор – умница!
I really enjoyed the video and the commentary. You are a great sailor.
Your boat looks wonderful and welcoming and you obviously know what you are
doing. It’s those little unforeseen things that one needs to know how to
handle and I suppose you always need a “fallback position” to get one out
of the various pitfalls one can face.
Amazing video..Excellent narration.
I loved your video, certainly the narration is the best part along with the
subtle humor you use with us, and surely with yourself, to keep things
sane. I posted this on my web site, that is how much I loved it! Best of
luck brother, now to get my own boat back in shape and sail into my dreams.
very nice and inspiring
could you tell us when you left and how long it took you to go and then to
Also what is the gadget you have that tells you the proximity of boats?
I loved this, thank you for sharing.
Gotta love those dance moves.
I watched this sitting on the balcony of my room at the Marriott resort
overlooking Nawiliwili harbor. I walked the docks hoping to find someone
going out who’d take on a Chesapeake Bay cruiser for the afternoon who’d
like to log some Hawai’i time. But all is quiet at the harbor. Came back
and fantasized about making the crossing, which prompted me to look for
videos. And then I find this one, as if it was custom-made for me. As you
sailed into Nawiliwili, the weather looked exactly the same here today—I
couldn’t help but look for you out there. Thanks for the excellent work.
Really enjoyed it! If you ever need a crewhand for future trip. Pls drop a
Incredible journey and video. Greatly entertaining, too.
I enjoyed your video and being a part of your journey. While the solitude
is nice, the best parts are with other cruisers at the dock, sometimes. I
sail in Alaska but have sailed in 3 foreign countries and up and down the
US west coast and parts of Mexico. I was wondering if you used a preventer
on your main when sailing dead downwind. I also noticed you used your
spinnaker pole on the jib with the topping lift, or was that a whisker
pole? Either way, a great idea. Loved the underwater shot w/ your GoPro.
I use mine to check under the boat. Thanks for sharing your adventure on
YouTube! It was enjoyable!
Man, you really enjoying what you are doing. Congratulations for a happy
man dancing “Bandolero” in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.
This was a well documented and narrated personal video I have ever seen.
I’am glad that me typing in: “how to repair a lido 14” brought me this
video of you sailing to Hawaii…but I’am sure glad it did. I can’t wait
for my trip to Hawaii with me and the fellas in a few years. Thanks for the
video and I will be re-watching this with my friends.
One more thing is there any advise that you can give to us inexperience
Thank you, hard to improve on the comments already posted. You’ve captured
the essence of sailing and at the same time come over as a fine man.
Thank you Christian,
This video diary comes across as a beautifully real account of a great
trip. Too few capture that sense of space and being alone with your ancient
friends and your thoughts. Well done. Not too long, not too short, just
Practicing for a solo trip myself soon, but a steep learning curve ahead.
Great sea story, very nice, enjoy!
Every moment was precious and I just relaxed over the video with a tasty
jamaican rum. Thanks for the sharing and I hope it was not the last one!
I LOVED every minute of this video. What did you find most enjoyable about
your entire trip?
