This is the first of the films about Shetland – I think there will be two more. When the weather is good in Shetland the sailing is superbe. During the whole time there we only had one meal in the cockpit.
The sail from Lerwick to Symbister on Whalsay was a journey to be treasured – beam reach, great scenery, sunshine, interesting navigation, just the right sea state to keep things interesting. The old Centaur was lapping it up.
Try to watch it on a big telly if you can.
Happy Christmas chaps

Sorry about the delay chaps – I moved house so that really got in the way of making films.
Now that most sensible people watch the films on their big tellies it seems that a slightly longer film might work. So this one is an hour.
let me know if it works or lingers too long
