Sail away with Alexander!
Video Rating: 4 / 5
great video Aries are great wind vanes and hold course wind wise which on
long passages is good, the designer apparently said nothing was immune to
damage from the sea but he had tried . ( or something like that )
Great trip been their and done it North Atlantic to Caribbean St Johns
Fascinating video. But the thing that always bothers me about these videos
is the wind sound distortion. Is there a proper fix for that depending on
the kind of video camera you are using?
I salute you sir, that would have been the 24 days i never slept story.
Thanks for sharing.
Disappointed. 🙁 Title says, “from BC to Hawaii” but when the video starts
you’re already 250 miles of the California coast. I live on Vancouver
Island, been to Port Renfrew many times and was looking forward to seeing
familiar sights. along with all the rest of your trip.
With the servo arm gone and the electric auto pilot not functional, use a
couple of blocks to cross the jib sheets to the tiller. Provides self
steering. That’s why tillers are good on small boats like yours. Other than
a few mine have all been larger and had wheel steering. Fortunately I’m
pretty crafty and have been able to fix whatever broke.
The Aries systems are the best.Ask Wilfried Erdmann.
thanks for the virtual sail …loved it ..too gorgeous for sure
Your video starts on the 4th day off CA…how was the trip down the WA and
OR coast? How far off shore did you sail down the coast?
Singlehanded a 26 Contesa from S.Cali to Papeete. Won’t do that again
Very nice, Congratulations.
I’ve watched this video five times over the last year. Love the music, the
sound of your voice, and the way you worked your way through the problem.
It all adds up to a great description of the pace of a voyage. Thank you.
Very nice! Reminds one of the Alberg designs. We sail an Alberg 37—also
Canadian built—in the San Juan Islands. Here is our sailing song, with
photo montage of sailboats, including composer MIke’s A-37.
A trip I took many times in the late 70’s early 80’s. I worked for a group
that delivered sailboats. They had a side of the business that would
deliver boats to Hawaii from North America. The owners would fly over and
meet their craft and sail around the islands. Most often we would then
return it to anywhere from Juneau to San Diego.
Met Kevin, tall younger guy, retired govt employee from BC, while he was
weathering, sheltered in Winchester Bay Oregon on way to Hawaii last year.
Wondered how he managed with his solo journey aboard his 34 double ender?
Said if he was enjoying the trip, around the world was a possibility..
Thanks for the vid. May you be blessed with great sailing.
Cam you tell me what king of boal ect. ect.
WOW, what an adventure for sure!
I know nothing about sailing. So how do you keep from hitting things at
night? Or when you’re sleeping?
I was looking forward to what you first seen of hawaii and your greeting!
I appreciate your camera work. All shots were focused and steady. Many You
tube videos are unpleasant to watch due to excessive camera movement.
cant hear a word you say . but nice vid
