This is the best sailing footage I can remember, and certainly fantastic footage of the physical nature of small boat sailing. Definitely a "Wow" view. There is a lot of info in his narration, but the film is so mesmerizing, that it will take a few views to absorb the content. What I appreciated in the end, is that he describes his addiction to sailing and why it has meaning for him in a compelling way. Have a look.

An abandoned cargo ship on Lac St. Louis is threatening our waters with a potential spill. It has been over 4 years listing in an area near Beauharnois. It could potentially spill millions of litres of water contaminated with crude oil into our waters.

The last evening race for Team Ambitious turned out to be a windless occasion. Still as usual, Mike Anderson is always quick to drop anchor, and boats will raft up to enjoy the evening. The Good Neighbours Series racing is always fun. The blue striped Tanzer 22 with the pop top here is Mike Plesco's.
