KeepTurningLeft Season 7 part 12 – Up the Medina – just for completeness

The Medina is the name of the river that runs through Cowes - such a pretty name and good place to escape the insanity of Britain's Premiere sailing venue

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

    Jeezus Dylan, I still owe you some dosh for the last discs you sent and it’ll be on its way soon but that video combined with the music crawled down my spined and exited from my recently half amputated foot and left me with waves of pleasure and tears of emotion. Thanks for that. Angus.

    Steady on old chap….although the Solent is a marvelous sailing area – so many great little harbours to explore and all within a few hours of each other.

    well, that was delightful. A treat especially after a day of dealing with a dead frig – humping everything down to the garage frig and an ice chest on the deck. Called Sears service – after they spend ten minutes trying to sell me no end of service policies they finally agreed to send a service man – nearly a week from today. But a whisky and soda and five minutes of a Dylan flick and all is right with the world.

    Such a treat to see the variety of boats, and so many sail craft. And just fun to see folks enjoying a day messing about with boats.

    Oh, yes – this was the day planned to finally get Polywog wet this year.

    PS – and what do you call refrigerators on your island over there? I know a TV is a”telly”, but what is a “frig”?

    in the morning I will tell jill that the milk is in the “jolly old fridge” – here in Englandshire I very seldom hear the word fridge without the words “jolly old” in front.

    As an inbred Islander – now resident in distant Dorset – and a yachtmaster in a previous life, your video has brought so many memories bubbling to the surface, bringing bright and colourful reflections of my sailing days. Joyful!
    Looking forward now to seeing those places I didnt get to visit myself. Thank you
