    Ooooh, good ones, Kimo! Even our non-sailing friends will enjoy the sunrise in movie #1 at that link.
    Did they get any video in the Molokai Channel? And were you on board for T-Pac with them? Cuz I noticed the producer on that link was listed as, you know... you.

    Whoa That was choice!

    They were flying and the music was cool too.

    Really glad that I could watch this video. You see, the one's that say I have to download plugins won't work for me. I've tried downloading a couple of times and they seem to get lost during the transporter transmition from space.

    I learned to sail on SF Bay and outside the Golden Gate......cold, scary, and thrilling as anything youve ever done

    Big Boats - if you ever get the chance to sail on one, go for it.

    That's the one thing about California waters, much colder than one might expect.

    Indeed. Been there, done that, got the t-shirts (and crew shirts and Mount Gay caps and various battle scars). I recall one race where we were trying to sail out of the Bay. Doing 8 or 9 knots with full sail, heeled over and flying... backwards, thanks to an incoming tide. Had to drop anchor and wait for the tide to change.
    But you want "scary and thrilling", try surfing at 25 knots down the Molokai Channel on an ultralight 70 at night with no moon, just a few hundred yards off the windward side of Molokai. Add in 15- to 20-foot waves and 30+ knots of wind, then getting dismasted within sight of the rocks. Throw up a jury rig, sail out of danger, and still end up first in class. (Cheval, TransPac '95).

    Oh yeah. Click here for a two-minute video abour the maxi-catamaran "Orange" sailing at 36 knots.

    It's not a video (per this thread title), but you can see three pages of exquisite photos of big classic sailing yachts racing in Antigua last week by clicking here.

    CNN has a 1:37 video of a 47' sailboat on the rocks in England. Apparently it was a brand new boat and the buyer was an amateur sailor; he let his girlfriend take the helm and WHAM they hit the rocks and had to be rescued.
    To see the video click here. (There might be a 30-second Listerine commercial before the video starts. Sorry.)

    More money than sense is how I'd describe that owner.

    A big Hau`oli La Hanau to him. I wonder if he celebrates in Cinco De Mayo mode?
    Which leads me to point out that one of the main reasons I celebrate Christmas day is that it's Jimmy Buffett's birthday.

    Here's something I found this morning:

    For those of you who crave more sailing on TV, OLN has come to the
    rescue. At 4:30 pm EDT this coming Sunday, OLN will air a show produced
    and narrated by Gary Jobson about the 286-boat Acura Key West 2006. But
    the televised sailing action actually starts a half hour earlier. At
    4:00 pm EDT OLN will show a 30-minute program on the Volvo Ocean Race.
    And that’s just the first show in a series of four programs on the Volvo
    Ocean Race -- all of which will be aired on successive Sunday
    afternoons. (Program 2 - 5/14, 4:00 pm - 4:30 pm; Program 3 - 5/21, 4:30
    pm - 5:00 pm; Program 4, 5/28, 4:30 - 5:00). --

    Kimo, it's not coming out soon -- their show is now beginning its third season on cable TV. I don't think we get it here, though. Darn it.
    (Side note: I've known Bob B. from way back when he was Publisher/Editor of "Easy Rider" magazine. One helluva nice guy. Glad to see that "Latitudes & Attitudes" magazine is doing so well for him and Jody.)

    Will do. They usually keep "Lost Soul" (newly refurbished, as you probably know) out at Ko Olina whenever they sail over. Last time we spoke (couple of months ago) they didn't have any plans to come over and instead are hoping to cruise Lost Soul to the Caribbean and the Med.
    Have you met him before? He's about 6'4" or 6'5" and maybe 280 pounds, covered with tattoos, and looks like someone's worst nightmare of a Hell's Angel, but he's actually very soft-spoken, one of the gentlest and sweetest people I've ever met, he's great with little kids, and he's a very talented jewelry designer as well. Hail fellow well met, as they say.

    dass wheah we steh.

    A good friend of mine owns the yacht with the tallest mast here at Koolina. Gotta lotta sailing footage from this harbor, which, being a new development, is fairly antiseptic, but it's fun to see the varied boats and the huge Koolina cat silently glide by occasionally.

    No can, darn it. Duty calls, and duty provides a paycheck.
