4,000 miles in a Wayfarer with Steve Clarke-Lens

This YouTube tells the story of how Steve Clarke-Lens sailed a Wayfarer to the Peloponnese, crossed the Mediterranean and then cruised the Nile. My thanks to Bruno Mazzilli for sharing the link!

Peter Radclyffe talks about restoring a many decades old traditionally built boat made for the Mediterranean

Peter Radclyffe

Down on Elba, Peter Radclyffe talks about the issues involved in restoring and repairing a many decades old traditionally built boat made for the Mediterranean. I hope folks can see it, because he has some interesting points to make…

A beautiful and touching short video made by friends of Ben Crawshaw

Ben launching Onawind Blue video

 

This is a lovely piece of film, but don’t let that distract you from noticing how Ben Crawshaw has the art of launching down pat – or the way he uses a topping lift to enable him to row efficiently. This fella has something to teach us.

And, as usual, he has his boat looking great, and the low sun looks even better on the sparkling water of Spain’s Mediterranean coast in January this year.

I found the Vimeo link on Ben’s website a bit difficult – if you have trouble making it work well, look out for a button that takes you to a YouTube presentation of the same snatch of film.
