Video of the June Channel Crossings

Thanks to Charles, one of my able crew for the June crossings to Normandy and back, there is now a short video clip available.  Charles also plays a starring role and it is he who is aiming the camera stick.  It is a good cross-section of the pleasant downwind trip over, a bit of lounging under the bimini drinking beer at the Port de Plaisance in Ouistreham, and at the end some fairly boisterous conditions (3 reefs in the main) as we neared the Isle of Wight on the way back.  The camera does tend to flatten the waves though!  Enjoy:

    Nick, vidéo magnifique ! Je vais embarquer ton cameraman ! Nous sommes à GIJON depuis avant-hier soir. On te prend la mer demain matin. Arnaud a débarqué, Philippine a embarqué ! Le blog est à jour ! Bises à Sue et aux enfants.

    Je vois que tu files à 6 kts vers les côtes françaises ! Bon vent et bonne mer à toi, ta famille et elle, Spellbinder !
    J’attends à Camarinas le mécanicien pour changer mon alternateur du Volvo. J’espère demain, lundi !
    À très bientôt,
