Another interesting film.Loved the chapel, the string of gulls and the lupins.The lupin man was flying the Union Flag and the Norwegian Flag..not a Saltire in sight!
A lovely vid I thought, nicely paced with bits of history (not too mangled), local interest, scenery, sailing and sunsets.Tapped.
It is such a lovely place to sail
I would love to go back in a heatwave
the beaches are fabulous
Thanks again Dylan, marvellous video as usual. You are a very talented man. I’m so glad there’s so much coastline left for you to show us!
Thanks Jackthere is a lot of coast to enjoyalthough I would love to go back to Scapa when the light is goodwe were not best served by the weatherbut I still thought it was a brilliant place to sailThe Old Centaur was really flying along at times
We were exploring there (shoreside) just a few days ahead of you. Like you we loved the area and greatly admired the chapel. It was certainly cold all the time we were on Orkney but as you have shown in this latest video, it is a great place for boats and sailing. Thanks Dylan. P.
The trouble with being a sailor is that wherever you go by the coast you see the sea and you think that I would rather be on the boat looking at the land than be on the land looking at some-one else in a boat
or even worse… a great place to sail and no boats to be seen.
Is there a smaller download option for slower connections? on about 10kb/sec at the moment! Jes

Very much enjoyed the film, it brings back the memories from our (me and wife) visit to the Orkneys just a few weeks before your cruise around the islands.
That WAS summer. It was hot in London at that time, when I was there, and I am an Aussie
Hi Dylan, Another superb video which brought back lots of memories of our trip across Scapa Flo on 14th June last year. We were impressed with the nice new moorings in Long Hope, and after a secure night we took off through the Pentland Firth to Wick and down the east coast to Hartlepool. Magic times! Can’t wait for the next instalment.Best RegardsRob
welcome to the Northern isles. There is no doubt latitude has a role to play in temperature
Scapa Flow is such a brilliant place to sail – I feel privileged to have sailed there
Well 27 degrees in London, 18 degrees at John o Groats ,so it really dropped off over a short bit of sea.
Great work Dylan, but so unfair, you get to do all this sailing!
that film was all one day sailing
a long northern summer day though
spent four days editing it
jealous of myself at times
it is such a splendid place to sail
there is a bloke there with a fast cat – must have had some amazing sails
going down to the boat in the morning
Thanks for another great video, sorry about last summers weather, keep up the good work. Bob ( Kirkwall Marina)
Checked GE for your marina and wonder what is the circular pond SW of Kirkwall Marina
a boating lake
The Orkney’s and Scapa Flow remind me of the uplifted terraces of our Point Reyes National Seashore –
A bit chillier, given it was summer, though.But then Sam Clemmens called the San Francisco summer the coldest winter he’d ever encountered.
A fun adventure. enjoyed the conversation with the lupine bloke. A Robert Gibbings type of encounter.
I can see the geographical connections
excellent place to sail I should say
Dylan! One of the best films yet – love the knack you have of continuing the narrative from on location to the studio and back. Means you’ve been thinking ahead – what next? Storyboarding??
Great stuff, not much sun, but very long days and great light at times I should imagine.
First class all round.
Another belter Dylan. thanks. Sailed there a few years ago and was moved when we were over Royal Oak as you could see the bunker oil still floating to the surface on a still day.
Another well put together film D magical qualities to it, One of your best I would agree.Thanks for sharing.Ade
dunno how that happened
call it an accident
hard to understand just how much the place must have changed
Watching this latest instalment of Dylan’s Odyssey I was reminded of Ernest Cox. A few years ago my Father in Law lent me a book, it was called “The Man Who Bought a Navy” and was the story of Ernest Cox, who acquired the rights to salvage the German High Seas Fleet after it was scuppered in Scapa Flow. Its a fascinating and awe-inspiring tale of men with imagination and determination, in equal measure. A quick glance at a well-known on-line retailer shows a couple of other books on the subject – and highly-rated they are too.
watch this space – it was an amazing operation – a man who showed no fear when presented with an impossible job
They have been looking for a perfect place to run a sailing event, need smooth water , plenty of reliable wind, lots of viewing places from the shore, deep water and large docks , cheap construction costs for workshops , sail lofts and the like. sounds perfect, what’s not to like?Anybody have the number for the America’s Cup organizers?who needs the sun, sea, sand and surf of Bermuda!http://cdn.sailingscuttlebutt.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/2015-03-20_11-34-13r.jpg
you have the germ of an idea – and one that could earn us a great deal of money
no problems that could not be overcome by donning an extra layer
on your behalf I have just bought 300 yards of quay space for you
it comes with a jetty – some small repairs needed
bring a hammer
Perfect only 5 more needed!
