Our posts on You Tube and Articles in the Yachting press




We've come to fathom the workings of Windows Moviemaker and don't find it a particularly good programme - surprise, surprise: it's Microsoft but it's free! When I needed to reinstall a new laptop, I installed MovieMaker-PRO, but haven't used it so far. Our initial postings in 2017/18 were more about us trying to get to grips with making semi-okay videos, than with producing future award-winning films!


Our short film on Ngahue IV sailing the 2017 ARC (see below under 2017) seems to be pretty appreciated and has generated over 2000 views within three years of being on You Tube, which we think is quite a feat for a small and "un-pushed" posting! And all our films together have been viewed more than 7,000 times! The frequency of posting films will diminish in 2021 as we return to quiet European sailing...


Interspersed with our video posts, there are also a few links (or references) to (press) articles mentioning us or our boat, or articles written by Laura!
