Each of these films takes about three weeks to edit. I have 12 more films in the can before I run out of material. These films will cover the West Coast of Shetland including Scalloway, the rough nightime crossing of the Pentland Firth,down to Loch Eribol, around Cape Wrath which was a pussycat that day, down the North Minch to the Summer Isles, to the amazing Handa,Loch Drambuie, Salen, Tobermory, the sound of Mull, CorryVrekan, Craobh, through the Crinan canal and the Clyde to Glasgow – and a few more places along the way.

If I am to re-boot the series with a boat that can keep me, the camera gear and my clothes dry and warm I need to average £2K per film – or about a third of the money that the bikini sailors earn per Week. Thanks for considering helping that happen

    Brill film as always, but yes, on my iPad your voice becomes virtually inaudible from about 15 minutes in, when the RIB is doing his MOB duty. The music is at the correct volume. The first 15 mins are oddly completely OK. Perhaps iPads don’t like MOB drills? John B

    worked perfect on an android tablet, although i was using chromecast to get it on the proper telly. Orkney looks a great (although challenging!) place to sail…..looking forward to the next instalment, need to make them quicker D as i’m running out of old ones to watch!

      I am having problems making the audio work for both tellies and tablets. I can compress the signal so that it sounds like medium wave radio or I can leave the dynamic range

      strangely enough when I started most blokes watched on a desktop CRT and desktop speakers –

      the CRTs really help to make the most of poor images

      I used to suggest pushing the chair back and putting your feet on the desk to watch

      people were watching highly compressed films but they looked okay

      now they are less compressed and look great on a big telly – but now lots of more people are watching on tablets the size of letter boxes and with speakers the size of raisins.

      I think that everything is doable provided you wait for the weather and pre-plan the places to run to

      it is when you cannot hide that things can get nasty. Up in orkney there are loads and loads of great anchorages

    Enjoyed that greatly! Nicely done.

      Thanks CJ – it is nice to see some bright light at this time of year4 – even if it is coming at you through a computer screen

    Great as usual Dylan head phones in on an iPad all is well to the point I can hear the camera rolling (I think!).

      Maybe now I am 60 I need a young man to edit the films – there is something getting onto the track I can no longer hear on my logitec speakers

        Doubt it matters much as most of us are around the same age or not far off! And of cause for me it’s totally irrelevant!

    oi – some of us are still the right side of 40 ;)

    Cheers, nice one.

    At 59 I am on the right side of 40! Its all relative to your viewpoint.

      I would hate to be working as hard on other peoples projects now as I was when I was 40.

      blimey those were tough years with kids and mortgage and only sailing when work allowed

      now when the sun shines…. I am off

    Video plays great on iPad and the big Telly direct from Vimeo. No audio or video issues at all.
    Enjoyed the voyage. The rocky coast line is cool but a little freaky for a ditch crawler. Still suprised how much mud and sand there is in Scotland.

      the awful thing is I can hear it now – provided I move the laptop away from the main desktop. It is bang on the frequency of my hard drives

      H is such a good bloke he has ripped the audio track, killed the buzz, stitched it back in so I will replace the film with his version

      bloody brilliant

      he is now head of audio at KTL industries
