North Shore Yacht Club video

this is an excellent promo video for North Shore Yacht Club in Highland Park, Illinois (a northern suburb of Chicago).

NSYC

the club has a large fleet of Sunfish sailboats, also races Buccaneers, and has kayaks and stand-up paddleboards for it’s members to use as well.

this video was produced by Steve King, a member of NSYC – he also made this excellent video on “rigging a Sunfish sailboat“.

today’s tunes: under pressure

RIP David Bowie.

my room-mate from college and I used to argue about who sang this song.  this was in the dark ages before smartphones allowed you to instantly look things like this up on the google or wikipedia, so we never did come to a conclusion.  I argued it was Queen, he insisted it was David Bowie.

a few years later, after we had both graduated, my friend called me on the phone with great excitement:

him: Thad, remember how we would argue about ‘Under Pressure’ as being Queen OR David Bowie?

me: yes, I remember.  it is Queen.

him: no! I just heard it on the radio… and it is David Bowie AND Queen! we were both right all along!

me: whoa. mind blown.

or something like that.

comanche!

this is an older video, but Comanche, a 100-ft flying machine just won line honours at the Rolex Sydney to Hobart yacht race.
