Ming Ming II Talk at the Cruising Association
On Wednesday I managed to briefly escape work and headed east to the Cruising Association's HQ in London's Limehouse Basin for a talk by Roger Taylor about single handed high latitude sailing.
I've been wondering how to write up what he said given I'm still struggling work wise, but then the answer became clear.
In the first half of his talk he covered the voyages of the original Mingming - which he wrote up in two good books which I've already blogged about (for example, here)
In the second half of his talk (after an excellent dinner was served) he played the video of his voyages in Mingming 2 up to Bear Island and back via Jan Mayen - which you can watch for yourself (click above for sample).
To be honest I only re-watched for a few minutes but then got distracted by the latest update from S/v Delos:
Top tip for all sailing vloggers - this is the level of quality to aim for, with excellent shooting and editing.
I might even say Sweet!
