A family cruise in 1961

Great video, they even spot one of those new fibreglass ones :-)

The narrator seems to think noone cruises anymore :-) Lots of great old boat footage from their 8mm movie camera.

Re: A family cruise in 1961

A sailboat is a time machine, a machine that takes a lot of time to get anywhere :-) Also, a lot more affordable now I think.

A very cool video! Simpler days. Perhaps still achievable today as well. Thanks for posting it!
