World Champion Gavin Colby is putting on a sailing clinic (see link below).There is talk of video- tapeing the Clinic and putting it on a D.V.D.Either respond here or e-mail myself at themadges@shaw.ca if interested in a copy.

O.K here is the latest on the sailing D.V.D they are sending me a D.V.D that
is about 1 hr in length.Once I get it I will need to edit it.This will
probably take a few weeks.I will then sell it at a very reasonable cost
$10-$15 depending on my costs.if you would like a preview of an unedited
segment let me know. themadges@shaw.ca
BTW if you have any editing skills also let me know.

The raw video I received was pretty much worthless as far as video was concerned. The sound quality was horrible and the lighting bad - shooting into a bright window, so all you saw of Gav was a silhouette. I may be able to pull a transcript off it, but even that would take a lot of time. I'm not doing it for free.

Actually the D.V.D's I got the picture was pretty good ,sound was poor.I sent off copies to Pat Porter.If interested he could probably make copies or just pass it on.Some good stuff in there.You have to listen closely,talks about gybing facing forward all the time and demonstrates the technique.Also some good advice on starting,traveler posistions,use of the downhaul.
like Matt says definitly not worth buying but I would be willing to burn a copy and send it off and then just pass it on.
