KeepTurningLeft Season 7 part 8 Keyhaven – just for completeness

On the way from The Beaulieu River  to Christchurch I nipped into Keyhaven.  I motored in and out - no sailing so it was hard to get a feeling for the place. An evening on a mooring there would be very nice

Not enough time so I include this just for completeness and for Vist My Harbour

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


This is about KTL 7 The Solent By Centaur, Sailing around Britain.

    Hi D, don’t think it’s me as I went back to check, but I’m having problems watching the Vimeo films after KTL7 4&5, symptoms are they stutter, stop, sometimes out of focus.. had to watch Newtown on Youtube… this one I tried multiple ways including download all show the same.. even put them on pause to download a good buffer and same… just though I should let you know…. if no one else complains then maybe it is me! :)

    you are the first to say so

    however, MOBs are astonishingly keen to avoid criticising


    anyone else here find they are unplayable?

    let me know and I will re-upload them

    Hi Dylan

    Having trouble with the Keyhaven vid, either downloading or watching on Vimeo, jerky and out of focus.

    Same thing for me on my blackberry playbook even after restart. Falters on my pc once in a while.
    Btw, music, pics and your voice all very soothing for this frozen sailor.
    Thx D

    Jerky on chrome but fine on IE.Chrome uses 99% of compute power to play video whereas IE uses 56% on my ancient Toshiba

    I downloaded all KTL 6+7 (and the rest for that matter) from Vimeo and played them from my HD to the TV. There are no problems at all. I guess reported problems must be connections, either local user or Vimeo servers. If all other fails try downloading before playing. I always do this as I hate interruptions.

    might I suggest downloading videolan

    it is free, does a great job and is very lean on resources

    the browers are trying to do all sorts of stuff in the background

    +1 on VLC. I have it on all of my devices.

    Hi Dylan

    We often think as we watch your videos what fine Tv they would make.

    And then we found someone who has made a film on Tv about old blokes saying along the coast. Unfortunately for 100 million English speakers world wide, it is in Welsh. But it has sub titles and the scenery is great. Brilliant boat too – an old Halcyon 27.

    I enjoyed that – real sailing on tellyn – who would have guessed

    Damn, only available to viewers in the UK.
    What about us truly frozen sailors in Canada?
