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!
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.
