Oli Tweddell - Australian Finn sailor | Short Film by Ben Hartnett






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.
