This is FKNA cool as shit.Never in my life have I filmed anything, but occasionally had people onboard that did some filming. You see some very small snipbits here: https://www.youtube.com/@BagheeraSailing
We have started working on the coolest sailing project ever and are potentially interested in sharing this on YT, though I'd need to hire somebody for the filming and the editing. I suck at that and I don't have the time for it. No girls in thongs in warm places though...
They have much to learn from us.There's some company called "30 seconds Out" that sells motivational patches and stickers that say "No one is coming" and "Expect to self rescue."
I'm a lemming, I bought a couple to sew onto my foulies.
Plus, it's another great opportunity to piss off my parents
30 too old for a mohawk? I dunno,...Some people of your/my gen (I’m close to you in age), who grew up just after the trailblazers of parent-pissing-offers, i.e., the Sex Pistols (Black Sabbath was/is right up there too in pissing parents off), started pissing off their parents when younger. However, it can be done at any age.
I certainly never knew Jim Morrison’s father, but I suspect his son’s decision not to follow in dad’s footsteps (he was a US Navy Admiral), and in fact show no interest and go quite in the opposite direction, you might say pissed him even after his son’s early rock ‘n’ roll legend death at 27... Sorta opposite scenario, but applies both way I’d think. Jim was undoubtedly rolling over in his grave pissing off his dad, while some continue to piss off their parents long after their parents’ death, relishing in them rolling over in their grave. There are therapists for both of those sorts of situationsAny age? Nah, it doesn't work so well when one's parents have died...
Thanks, but generally I do a lot cooler shit than this. When the ice gets so thick you can walk anywhere or 'sail' anywhere, that is when it gest fun!This is FKNA cool as shit.
One of the video makers that I had onboard did a bunch of interviews for EuroNews. There is a mediocre tour of the outside of the boat. Made for people that have never seen a boat before. There must be a video of the interior somwehere as well that was made for EuroNews, but I can't find it.I understand that YT isn't your thing, but I bet a bunch of people would dig a video tour of your boat. That thing looks awesome.
That is hard to answer, I've been up in the Arctic for 23 years now and the high latitudes for 30+ years (some would argue my whole life as I was born in the Netherlands. But personally I don't count that as High Latitudes). During those years I made 7 or 8 trips to Greenland, both from the Canadian side as well as the European side. Crew varies greatly. We take scientists up north so they can do their field research. We also take film teams for NatGeo and the BBC, or facilitate mountain climbing expeditions in really remote places. Occasionally we take adventure sailors with us or facilitate mile-builders for RYA or other (captains)licenses. I do a lot of singlehanded deliveries. My wife has her own boat and we usually sail the same trips, but each on our own boat.@Bagheera absolutely badass. You're not getting out of here easily.
We want full specs on the boat, more photos. Who was your crew? What path did you take to get to Greenland? I assume it was summer? August?
When my wife and I left on our first long sailing trip to Mexico and points south (we were in our late 20's) both sets of parents were out there in their respective boats. Each called on the VHF to wish us well. My wife's and her dad were both snuffling and crying and saying goodbye like it was the last time they would ever see each other...When I told my mother of my desire to buy a boat suitable for high-latitude expeditions and more or less give up on the fulltime rat race permanently, her response was: “Do it, and get on it before you’re too old and the dream becomes a regret buried under responsibilities, I wish I’d been brave enough to do it myself”.
Dude. What about you know... um keeping the bed warm on long cold nights? How's that work if she is on another boat?My wife has her own boat and we usually sail the same trips, but each on our own boat.
