Woman without Patreon account goes sailing in cold place

Recommended Posts

This topic, “Woman without Patreon Account Goes Sailing in Cold Place, reminded me of this film about “early cruisers” Nancy and Bob Griffith.  (They sailed to warm and sine very cold places.)

Well worth the $3 or whatever to rent to watch it on Google Play, etc.  Very impressive sailors sailing at a time when you very much were all alone out there, sadly, an amazingly hard thing to do nowadays.  It’s compilation of their old 16mm film they shot —much of it lost in shipwreck and recovered, amazingly, and edited to tell their life story.

(After watching it, you will not give a flying fuck about any sailor’s Patreon account anymore :-) )

I did as well - it's actually free on Amazon Prime.  Very very good.  Must see for sailors I think.  Surprised I'd never heard of them before, but I'm kind of a newbie.
