Hi everyone -
Ive just joined the forum, am from Cape Town
, South Africa
, and very involved with sailing media, both shore based and on-board, on many differnet classes
and races in cluding local regatta's and international. (Volvo ocean race
, Clipper, Vendee Globe etc)
Reason for thew message, I do recall
seeing a thread on Robin Lee Graham's 24 ft sloop
, Dove, from that classic 1974 film of Robins story that motivated so, so many people to start sailing.
Im pretty excited to say that after months of looking, I have located the original 'Dove' that was used to shoot the South African scenes for the film. (There was actually more than one Dove) Super stoked that this was the actual Dove from the film, so will be doing a short podcast movie
on her, going to meet her new owner, and going to go for a sail. If anyone on the forum is interested in seeing images
or the vid, I will post it here once done.
