FEATURED CURATED DOCUMENTARY
A film by Sea of Love Productions
An account of a passage from New Zealand to Tonga late in the 2012 season. It was a bumpy affair. We were very happy to get away from the cold New Zealand winter and very happy to arrive in Tonga. For more see http://www.omsailing.com
Running time: 1 Hour 57 minutes A classic trade wind 5,000 mile Transatlantic crossing shot in 1986 aboard legendary sailor/author Don Street’s 1905 engineless 44 foot yawl, Iolaire. Documents Iolair’s ninth Atlantic crossing from Ireland with eleven ocean islands along the way to Christmas in the Caribbean. Produced when small video cameras were rare, this jewel of a documentary was shot with a small format experimental JVC camera on VHS-C tape. This small package allowed the filmmaker to capture the intimate daily moments of a long ocean voyage, oceanscapes, and the many magnificent Atlantic islands along the passage. Today’s HD cameras and digital editing technology are allowing many more sailors to share their ocean adventures. Click here for more about this and other Don Street videos.
