Here are all the youtube films in chronological order
Wonderful DylanNo Irish sea video?You could probably re release these weekly as a new channel ‘sailing turns left’. So many people weren watching 10 years ago!Cheers Warren
the story of the short lived second Centaur is due to start in January
we only stopped two nights in the Irish sea so barely kissed the side – unfinished business
Man that’s a Map !
Watching your first films is like watching old re-runs of Doc Martin; it certainly reinforces the maxim ‘tempus fugit’. I am the same age as you Dylan and I am glad that you are still planning to close the circle (even if by ferry and ebike).
There is still the story of the short lived Centaur 2 to come – due to appear here in January. I spent half a summer and half a winter on the west coast before selling her –
Managed to find TAP button tonite. Thanks for all your wonderful poetic videos. I hope to be back sailing in Wells in spring, after 26′ boat has her winter in compound. Wish you get travelling again soon, to complete your circle. Keep in touch. Best Wishes.
I spent one winter and two half summers in wells – and jolly nice it was too
I loved the wash, wainfleet, the nene, boston, so many great places to sail
Vera Season 4Just been getting this tv show in the USA , it was filmed in 2013 in Anlmouth areaI think you were there about that time , KTL Season 4 e12.You might have been their during filmingHaving trouble figuring out the date of each ktl seasonThe TV show is apparently helping toursium in the area.Cheers Warren
Well I guess there was no film of Blythe to Anlmouth and the river , it would be episode 10 1/2 I guess.Warren
I seem to remember making one… I will have a poke around to see if I can find it.
Not quite related, but we have had no reporting of late on the electric bike and outboard, and how they have performed. Would be interesting to know.
Hi Dylan, it seems that Ron from Ronaldsay has had his way and you’ve closed off the whole lot from YouTube. Is this right? Very sad, I’m having to watch assorted Scandiwegians fettle boats instead of you pottering around rivers.
thanks for asking. Youtube has not been working for KTL at all – more and more hits each day with the growth mostly on smart Tvs – which is good because the films look great on a big telly – but bad because no visits to the website and the paypal button.
When they were all on youtube they were getting around 3,000 a day. The films now nearly all via this webste are around 500 a day.
But most of them have come via this website – taps have held pretty steady. The films are all on youtube still but only linked via this website. Sorry for the inconvenience but if I had kept just posting them willy nilly on youtube the future for the project was inevitable.
So my plan is to put the voice overless version of each film on youtube as a public film – but for a limited time in the hope that people will come here to see what I have to say about the images on the screen.
I am some-what doubtful that this will work but it is worth a try. Youtube has started sending me ever more frantic computer generated missives telling me that I should really make my films all public again – so clearly I am not the only serious film maker who is just using youtube as a hosting service.
I agree about the recent Ran films – rather good I think.
Thanks for the Entertainment, looking forward to being out there myself in a few years when the grindstone stops
I do love the freedom not having a regular job gives me – I seldom sail in the rain now… thanks for the tip mark
No worries Dylan , if you could get a few bikinis in the next series ? ——- only joking , safe travels, I look forward to seeing them soon
Any progress on getting a boat Dylan?
Slow progress N – I am still about £10K short….I have enough for a really bad one with a liability engine ….. chances are I might end up spending most of this coming summer fettling a fixer upper.
Fettling not good when you could be sailing😩. You’re welcome to come to Scotland with me, Mylor to Western Isles via Wales, Ireland and IOM.
very nice offer N
I love sailing solo – I can beeble off course whenever I like… it is the freedom that does it for me
I have discovered that the kind of shallow-water creek and river sailing that you do so effortlessly can be quite difficult to master…still working on it and will continue doing so, but I rely way too much on the outboard instead of my boat handling skills.
I think my love of the east coast comes from your videos. It is impossible for me to be on the Orwell, or in the Backwaters, or anywhere in those parts without your voice in my head….in a good way, of course.
Thanks David….very nice thing to say. In my head I mostly have Maurice Griffiths…. although I have never heard him speak. Sailing is easy, sailing is simple – sailing is safe. It is really very hard to do much damage to life or limb in a boat. Small ones bounce off most things.
