Nice video, and it seemed apropos today, metaphorically speaking.

This is serious sailing.

What makes the desert beautiful is that somewhere it hides a well.

So, if you asked yourself (WTF are those spools of line on the deck of that sailboat?), as I did, here is the answer.

They're for tying to shore when you're at anchor.



Nice scenery in the video in the vicinity of Cape Horn. I want this guy's job (but only when the weather's good.)

OK, if you are somewhere so remote there is no chance of anybody else coming it the bay.
