Winter Sailing on Puget Sound/Seattle Catalina 36

Properly welcoming the new year. Short single-handed sail on a breezy Puget Sound near Seattle. That cool tune you’re listening to is “Extreme Ways” by Moby. Couldn’t have dreamed a better soundtrack. If you like this video, check out Desolation Sound 2015 https://youtu.be/XmaEQnnVsro

    Nice! Just went on our first sail of the year. Here is our sailing song, with a photo montage of sailboats in the San Juan Islands, a little north of you. Fair winds! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NWdNZci2TDE

    Next time there is a small craft advisory, try going into Sinclair inlet. Boy, that is fun. With our boat we were heeling an excess of 40 – 50 degrees with our sails properly trimmed.

    Johns right about the cinematography. Its a nicely done video. I live and sail in the Chesapeake bay but I am from So. Fla. I sail all year here and there and often thought if I was in the sound……I'd sail year round there too!

    Thanks John for the comment! The 36 is a great boat that is relatively easy to single hand. That day was such a great day to sail, good steady wind and no-one on hte water, and the boat was just flying on a beam reach. I envy florida for warm year around sailing; we sail year around here, but it is wet/cold, sometimes freezing. The really cool thing is that sometimes you can get some skiing and sailing in one weekend — that makes it worth it altogether (or that's how we convince ourselves 🙂

    Cool Video. Perfect music too. I have a 2001 C36 MK11, so I can appreciate your single-handed skill, especially working a camera and in those conditions. Amusing to read 'start off the year' Here in Sarasota, Fl., we take for granted sailing year round. Impressive to see that SOG 8.5! I rarely see that in mine! Hope you've had a nice season.

    Nice video! What camera did you shoot this with? What video editing software? One more question: what was the nice music with it? Well done. Thanks for posting this on the C36IA website.
