intro to Belfast Lough sailability [video]

this is a short video to introduce people to the sailability program at Belfast Lough.  the program is intended to give everyone the opportunity to sail – even those with disabilities.  the program uses mostly Access 303 wide dinghies.

you can find the original video here.

I’m amazed at the work put in, often by volunteers, to establish and maintain a program such as this.

a Sunfish sailing fail caught on my GoPro

I was looking through some of my GoPro video footage from sailing my Sunfish last summer on Lake Erie, and I put together this little clip of me flipping the boat over.  I had been sailing a while and came in close to shore so that I could adjust the way my GoPro video camera was mounted back on the end of the lower boom.

in retrospect, I’m not really sure why I didn’t go all the way into the beach to fiddle with the camera – maybe I thought the process would be simpler?  either way, it ended up a bit of a mess, and flipped the Sunfish right over when the sail caught the wind just right.  thankfully the water wasn’t deep enough for the boat to flip all the way over and “turtle”.

I hope you find some joy in my stupidity!

2013 Sunfish Worlds [video]

here is another great video of the 2013 Sunfish Worlds racing at Lewes, Delaware.  those were some crazy conditions! heavy wind, huge waves… made for some challenging racing, I would think.
