It took me a while to figure it out. Why I was perspiring so heavily in the cabin while doing nothing at all. But it’s the wind, of course, which is now generally aft of the beam at 10 or so knots. Consequently, the breeze below is much reduced. And man, it’s hot.
Today’s video is a miracle. Actually, that you are seeing it is a miracle. For three days, the app I use to edit and compile video has failed to export this one. The machine whirs for five minutes and then crashes. Nothing I’ve tried, and I’ve tried a lot, has worked until–magic–this afternoon export complete. Not entirely sure why it worked, so we’re not out of the woods yet–but this video is out.
Huge thanks to my friend, Kelton, for the assistance in trouble shooting. Help desk and technical forum emails have been flying. I’m sure I’d still be stuck without his intervention.
The video is a longish collection of out-takes and action shots from the Cape Horn to Cape Horn loop. BE WARNED: I was unable to edit any of the sound. So the on deck shots are very loud with wind. Best to turn down your volume control before the fun begins.
I’ve been wanting to “show off” more of the south for some time, but the sailing got in the way down there, and I fell behind on videos. Glad you are finally able to see this one. I hope you will agree, it’s quite a place.
