North America is getting a bit of a winter pasting at the moment – and that is always good for KTL
Bring on the cold lads
this from Martin who was kind enough to set the shot up
Attached is a picture of the snowfall of March 14th with your latest “West coast of Shetland” video playing in foreground. Your videos help feed my sailing addiction while the boat is in its cradle and covered with snow. At this point the harbor is still frozen (see second picture – the white lumps in background are boats covered in shrink-wrap). What I love about your videos is that most of the footage is actual sailing as opposed to pictures of people swimming, diving, spearing fish etc. (Not that I don’t enjoy the occasional shots of well-filled bikini). As a (long ago) Geography major, I also love the various nuggets of geology, history, economics and politics you weave into the commentary. Some of the same things are present here but of course the history is generally much more recent. The videos have also shown me areas of the English coastline (and indeed countryside) that I have never had a chance to explore so I am eagerly awaiting your return journey via Ireland and the West Country.
As to your concerns about old age catching up – I have at least 9 years on you and we have for a shining example a club member who still single-hands his boat most days at the tender age of 90!
So there is still time.
