Chesapeake Bay log canoe sailing on video

Mighty stuff filmed by Seth Jones – just look at the huge rigs on those slender Chesapeake Bay log canoe hulls, the youngest of which are still old boats in anyone’s terms.

And the choice of music is so much preferable to the techy-synthy-guitary rock so often used to accompany these things. Surely old boats deserve something at least a little apt? Here we have a graceful old boat treated to a little graceful old music…

My thanks to Ginny Jones of Vineyard Sailing for spotting these videos about building and sailing these lovely clinker-built racing dinghies. Read more about them here and here.

As usual with these things, I want to have a go at sailing one – preferably this summer in a perfect breeze among lush green landscape and an sun twinkling on that Irish river water… One day!
