Here are a couple short videos that I shot with my new Olympus 790 SW. They are posted at Jumpcut and are much better even look good on their full screen.

I was sailing at mid 7's to low 8's racing sundown back to the boat ramp. I lost the race by about an hour and a half but covered a little over 45 mile in 7.5 hours.

I should have only had to sail about 25 mile but the wind didn't do as predicted.

It looks like you always have great wind in your area. I wish I had the same here!

It looks like you always have great wind in your area. Yes, if there is any breeze at all there is good wind somewhere on the Bay or Ocean Front.

I posted several of my recent videos on that sight because they have the best streaming version I have found so far. If you exit the full screen view you can access all 7 so far.

Gwiz, I really enjoy your videos. Looks like your spray shield is really working great! I noticed what looks like a coiled bow line in the second video. Is that part of your standard rigging? 8)
