Re: What else to watch?

Catamaran Impi, is high on my list.

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCIy...Uhlfkd34f8FrEg
https://www.facebook.com/cat.impi?hc_ref=NEWSFEED

This is a couple from South Africa, sailing a Lagoon 44 by themselves. They post videos to Youtube and ask nothing in return.

I like them because, not only are they showing some very interesting and unique places, they also show the trials and tribulations they run into while sailing. They have videos about boat equipment problems and repairs, along with "how to's" for such things as route planning and dealing with weather systems as the go.

Btw, I'm doubting those numbers quoted.

I donated a beer in bitcoin to Delos about a year ago. So you have no excuse any more 😀

I'm going to go back and binge watch the Monday Never duo tonight, but I'm wondering what other sailing vessels do you guys watch?
Now just imagine if instead of watching all the beer drinking, self appointed sailing movie stars, you get a second job (or first), you would realize your dream sooner. Hell...drop 15 feet off you boat expectations and you could be there even faster.
On a side note, I was completely disgusted when I saw a sliver of an episode where one of the beautiful people on Delos was thanking contributors for his beer and to please keep it coming. I've never seen such a bunch of narcissistic brats in my life.

There's also White Spot Pirate, I follow her too. (Along with La Vagabonde, Delos, DrakeParagon)

We have a documentary series too, but we're only on Episode 3, so not great for binging yet... it would be pretty fast.

Oh, I'll check them out. Do they put a qr code at the end of their videos? or do you have to visit their website?

A global currency for global cruisers just makes sense :-)

Re: What else to watch?

Accidental Sailor Girl, Love her innocence and positive attitude. Its also done multiple times a week. Shaun and Julia Sailing, quality improves with every video. Has added parting commentary that actually makes you think about life. Keep TurningLeft, love seeing Great Britain from the water, although they seem to be taking a break. Others, prefer real people on smaller boats to 60-70 footers with unlimited budgets.

This does not count their "beer money" or T-Shirt sales and other forms of income. As with OCC during the chopper craze, they make a good portion of their income from other venues.

I see you haven't run out of ugly pills yet.

SV La Vagabonde

200,000 subscribers on Youtube
1,000,000 plus views of some of their stuff.
1000 plus people voluntarily pay them something per video or month because they appreciate the videos they get to watch.

They're all wrong and your right

Narcissistic brats with a business plan. Who'd have thought?

Re: What else to watch?

Here is another one on YouTube being done by one of my crew, (n-irgendwo.de) I think that she is doing a good job.
Phil Lacey on board my sailing cat Big Bandicoot in Gibraltar stocking up for the trip over the Atlantic later on in the year.

Re: What else to watch?

So...what is the point of all these? You watch a bunch of folk sailing and reporting back either it's rain, how sunny wonderful it is, or what they're eating, interposed with bottom cleaning, one or two swimming montages?

Re: What else to watch?

I too used to follow Fatty until I read of him proudly boasting about ripping off another yottie for their spinnaker pole - basically stole it. Read the confession and how he bragged about it. I really lost faith in him after that.

Before all this Blog **** kicked off however I was a fan of Fatty Goodlanders monthly column in the sailing mag's.
Now there's a real sailor.. down and dirty.. none of this glamour and bullshit about imagined pirates.

Re: What else to watch?

For me, Salty, is that I have never been to the South Pacific and the video clips are luring me there.

Re: What else to watch?

I've enjoyed Teleport-especially the photography of NW Passage (once they get going)
Mind boggling that they made the trip in such a decrepit little boat.
