Sailing Uma's conversion into a marketing tool for Skillshare has now gotten to the point where they are barely watchable

 

What? Are you telling me you’re not a full-fledged member (not just a tourist, but a Citizen, Ambassador, Demi-God) of the Uma Nation?  How can you resist? :-)

The Uma pair sure have a well-honed "community"-type marketing spiel.  Like the "Delos Tribe".

I have a stash of sickbags to deal with it

An endearing and surprisingly capable couple who confirm every stereotype I have ever held...

 

The woman narrating the video has a voice made for print.

These people give vegans a bad name by so completely adhering to the stereotype. Thin, pasty, whispery reedy voices.

I have a vegan co-worker who is muscular, robust and has actual color in his skin. He should be the poster boy for veganism. The best part about my co-worker is that he doesn't feel the need to remind everyone every 5 minutes that he's vegan.

It's important to remember that the first step to making a vegan meal is the same as the first step making a vegetarian meal: catch and peel a vegan.

I like Uma.  I fast forward past their skillshare segments.  I know it pays their bills, which is fine.  I dont have to watch those sections.  Overall, though, their videos are pretty awesome.

Agreed. They can be a bit heavy on the ads sometimes but yes, it pays the bills. Their practical knowledge and presentation is way above the mass of average youtube sailors. They do seem more mature and non hysterical overall.

Yes, their videos are very well-produced.  And as @leuk note they have much more sailing and technical skill than most Youtube sailors.

But their advertising stuff is not just really intrusive, it's also nauseatingly cringeworthy.   It's like watching decent people selling their souls.

Paying the bills is one thing, but wrecking your product and destroying your credibility is a bad way to do it.

so I got sucked in to watching to see what their boat actually was, ('83 Roberts 34) but can I get a fact check on them ripping out the existing head to install a home-brew composting toilet because it is more environmentally friendly? apparently the idea of holding tanks full of crap while in a marina was unsettling, but the homemade composting toilet has a loose pee jug with no baffles and a nice wide open surface area... so that'll be fun in a heavy sea. They seem kind, nice, and gentle, like the couple you sit next to at a wedding and on the car ride home you turn to each other and both describe them as "really nice, but..." (I'm actually interested in what the biocide/antifouling choices of price sensitive, environmental activist vegans will be)

Mrs P had a colleague who was speaking exactly like this! We were living in Bristol, IME not uncommon in the west of England. TBH, I'd rather spent an evening in a pub with a Bristol vegan architect, artsy person or designer than with a loud football fan... may be that is just me.

Nope. Metals are made with coal.  Mask & snorkel petroleum.  It's teeth or nothing.

 

I have to admit that, purely by accident, I almost went vegan this week.  Without realizing it, I haven't eaten anything but oats, gazpacho, cornbread, salad and the like for days.  But last night, I woke from a dream in which one of the emergency frozen pot pies in the freezer was floating in front of me. I could literally see and smell it.  

Its like some sort of emergency warning system my body has.

Thanks for posting, I just watched that. I liked it, it was interesting and well done. Christian Williams is a good video editor and it was a positive story on the Coast Guard, which I am happy to see. In general though I still think Christian is a pompous old self-involved snot.

During an episode of Flip or Flop: Neolithic Edition. In which Shära Kristene and Shär Tarek convince the timid new owners to Go Big on renovation for their growing family. Kristene flips thru sample books of sarsen and bluestone, While Tarek argues with contractors about the solar alignment.

We enjoy watching Sam's videos. Unpretentious. The guy you want on your boat when stuff breaks. And stuff does break. Looking forward to his Atlantic crossing this spring/summer.

He's only 45 minutes down the road from me, and I've intended all winter to drive by to hopefully catch him working on the boat. But looks like he's casting off in just over 30 days, so likely won't get the chance.

Think he said he is launching on May 3rd.

Thanks, wondered where he was working on the boat.

I rather stupidly looked in on their latest effort, nice to see nice to see it’s now OK in the UK to attend an activist animal rights protest, who cares about COVID?

anyway, I think she has a nose problem, which contributes to the wierd voice. She mouth breathes, and probably needs someone to take a look at her adenoids...

his voice is just what happens to men when they go woke..

It thankfully has no dialogue —zero— only music.  :-). 

Great video that really gives the feel of small boat sailing in higher latitudes. Kind of reminded me of Yves Gélinas' Alberg 30 film "Jean de Sud Around the World", but without the quality cinematography. The fisheye view from a GoPro gets old quick...

Well, this will help, CNN doing an article on it and claiming:

Popular sailing YouTube channels like Sailing Ruby Rose and Sailing SV Delos, among many others, feature attractive couples and families covering their living expenses (and often far more) with YouTube ad revenue, paid sponsorships and support from Patreon -- a subscription-based crowdfunding platform used by content creators to make money.

That's why I never did a triathlon in the first place. Really, that's the reason.
