I want to start by making clear I get no renumeration from this project
. A short while ago I worked with Yves Gélinas to restore and transfer his 16MM film of the above title to HD. I had worked in film years ago and when I saw it just felt it was a poetic work of art and great transporting piece. Yves also created and sells the Capehorn wind
vanes - you might know him from that work as well.
It turned out the day we transferred the film was his 75th birthday. He still actively sails
and is a wonderful person to spend time with.
In a day before the immediacy and convenience of GoPros and other great tools, Yves sailed around the world documenting an amazing journey. I hope you get a chance to see the film and enjoy it as much as I still do watching it over and over again.
