Singlehanding the Sea of Cortez + Video
« on: April 27, 2019, 08:45:45 AM »

Last year, I had the best time singlehanding in the Sea of Cortez on this boat formerly known as SV Blackdragon. It was such a treat, not having to rush from a place to another and not being on a schedule. For the first time I had the luxury of understanding what it means to ACTUALLY going with the wind. Sailing from anchor to anchor at times. It didn't matter if I was going 2 or 7 knots. In this video I also give some feedback about the Sailrite sails I made.

Let me know what you guys think. I love making those videos and looking forward of making more. Feedback will be greatly appreciated and well received!

I liked it, kind of fun to see another 34 out there doing it.  Heard so much about SnapDragon, was fun to see it in action, Ya I know it is a different owner now, and I followed his many improvements, from new engine to rear berth mattress, but was fun to see, saw the spice rack above the stove, gonna put one in now, thanks.  Maybe we should have more of our members post a few "just for fun" short videos, fun to see how the other guy does it in action in addition to project pictures.  splash in two weeks, can't wait, that video fired me up :clap

Nice video. Interesting to see the rays jumping.   Will you be sailing her back alone too?

Thanks guy! The plan for now is to sail North of the Sea of Cortez for the hurricane season until next November. Then sail to Central America before starting our South Pacific Crossing in March. The youtube channel is about a year behind and there's lots footawge more coming.
