It has some pretty decent production value in an Italian Mediterranean setting. It captures the free wheeling feeling of tooling around in one of these clever sailing pedal craft.

I wonder what he did to the lens? RainX or something, I guess? No water on it, even when he dunks the camera completely. No water spots at all.

Makes me want a waterproof video camera! I have been afraid to bring out my camera during some of the most exciting AI sailing I have done.

T Ray,
Didn't even notice that.. but you're right and that sort gives it a surreal texture.
BTW, I really liked your videos with the two AI's in Ike's precursor winds.
I have a Pentax Optio which I occassionally dunk it under for a quick
lookee-see. Maybe I'll try some Rainex on it because the droplets do stick on the lens.

Also in case anyone's interested,
I just looked up the lyrics of the Chris Cross song, SAILING, because I never could make out all the words even though back in the day it got millions of radio plays, But now that I've got something to sail I can kind of relate to the lyrics even though the song sounds a tad gay, it works well with the video (so does the metal music at the end):

It's not far down to paradise
At least it's not for me
And if the wind is right you can sail away
And find tranquility
The canvas can do miracles
Just you wait and see
Believe me

It's not far to never never land
No reason to pretend
And if the wind is right you can find the joy
Of innocence again
The canvas can do miracles
Just you wait and see
Believe me

Sailing
Takes me away
To where I've always heard it could be
Just a dream and the wind to carry me
And soon I will be free

Fantasy
It gets the best of me
When I'm sailing
All caught up in the reverie
Every word is a symphony
Won't you believe me

It's not far back to sanity
At least it's not for me
And when the wind is right you can sail away
And find serenity
The canvas can do miracles
Just you wait and see
Believe me

Great Vid. This is the first video i have seen where someone is releasing and adjusting the sail in the video. Good tunes too.

There just cannot be to many videos to watch and keep me motivated till
I can have a AI of my own My Precious. :shock:
