      Dylan, thanks for posting; very touching film.

      Dave, thanks for the youtube link; I also couldn’t get vimeo to stream. It kept hanging up.

        yeah … i can download vimeo movies fast (like that option for Dylan’s vids are they are higher quality that YouTube) but can’t stream. very strange as I can download one of Dylan’s movie faster than it can be watched (ie, streamed).

          Dave,

          that is good to know. I pay £180 a year to Vimeo for the faster downloads…..The compressions are much gentler too than the youtube ones which are pretty brutal. However, my guess is that youtube will eventually kill vimeo.

    An absolutely stunning piece of sailing cinematography and a real eye-opener on MS!

      just shows that we have to sail as much and for as long as we canTake lots of pictures, write what happened. A human spongy brain is a terrible place to keep memories. I am amaed how much I have forgotten of the details of this little journey. I see them in the films and I go…blimey that had gone.

        Hear hear! for sailing as much and for as long as we can. Lately i’ve been feeling silly in keeping on at 78. But being on the water is such a joy. Just pushing away from the float is a thrill. Those words are a huge encouragement, worthy of being printed large and taped to my desk along with all the others. And speak of a brain that works like a colander – I know I photograph as much for the memory triggers as for art. Spot on as always, Dylan!

    As Simon says: an eye opener om MS.
    I knew little about the disease. A man I knew at work, almost twenty years ago, who had it. He was not a close colleague, and I never saw him again, after I went to another job.
    Seeing how long Roger has lived with MS, I wonder wether this colleague is still alive, and better still, enjoying some ‘quality time’ now and then. I hope so.

    A beautifull piece of work, this video. In more than one sense.

    This stirs emotional memories for me. As a young man all my sailing off the West Coast of Scotland had been on charters with my Father and various of his mates and one of mine.
    When I married in July 1989, my father was dying of lung cancer and had a few months to live. The first part of our honeymoon was a weeks charter on The Clyde from Rhu. My infinitely better half suggested that we should pick him up from Largs on the Monday (2nd day) and take him to Lamlash which was one of his favourite spots. We did that and had a glorious fetch to Lamlash, lunch aboard, and a positively sparkling reach on the way bacl to Largs where my Mother and a couple of their friends were waiting. We had a fairly convivial dinner in the evening at The Marina.
    Not a conventional honeymoon event but I am so glad that we did it; it was his last sail and he died two months later.
