video weekend

As the days grow shorter, sailing videos grow more important. Here are your weekend selections from SA’s staff:

The Wire

An entire season of racing all over the world, and it’s all down to the final day of the final event:  Can Morgan Larson win Brazil outright, putting a boat between Alinghi and The Wave Muscat to take the 2013 Extreme season?

As much as we’d love to see US skipper Larson take it, we have to admit that, with MacMillan at the helm, Muscat has been smart, fast, and consistent for the better part of two years now, and they should fairly easily claim the first back-to-back Extreme Sailing Series title in the event’s history after a solid, conservative, and winning start to the final event.

But desperation makes for good TV, so you better watch as Larson will do everything he can to screw the Wave’s day up.  Watch it here starting at 1300 EST/1000 PST.

 

Everybody, Again

One of our favorite sailing videos ever is nearing a million Youtube views, but “Everybody” – the high-speed action shoot with various ORMA 60, Open 60, kiteboards and windsurfers – is getting decidedly long in the tooth for the late night party/yacht club TV screens it is most suited for.   So we’ve got a new one for you; it’s video producers GZ Company’s 2013 highlight reel, and it’s got everything from 12 meters to sport boats to maxi catamarans to Volvo boats.  Enjoy.

 

Bert and I

The ‘Bert and I’ collections of humorous maritime stories may be from Downeast Maine rather than the Chesapeake, but they capture some of what Annapolis sailor Bert Jabin was all about. We remember a leader, a legend, a mentor, a boatbuilder, a racer, and the founder of Junk Jungle Lane, and our most sincere condolences to the entire Annapolis community on Bert’s death.  Share your own thoughts in the thread.

 

Kiting With Crocs

For all the talk about snakes, sharks, and jellyfish, Far North Queensland aborigines will tell you there’s just one animal to be truly afraid of:  The Saltwater Croc.  Check out this Naish-produced video to see how Ewan Jaspan, Will Smallacomb, and Ant from Kitesafari Australia just don’t give a shit.

 

Hot Tomales

Who says you need to wait for a big downwind day to practice wave sailing?  And who says you need a surfboard to go surfing?  Screw it! Grab your Zuma and do what SA’er ‘wrybread’ does at the mouth of Northern California’s Tomales Bay.  Wanna know more?  Ask him here.
