Breezin' with Whimsy

I tried out a bungee cord dampener on my home-made pivoting camera mount. It did a good job of dampening, but it also prevents the camera from staying level. So, more tweaking is needed! In the meantime, enjoy the ride as I work Whimsy in a bit of breeze. Apologies for some rather unflattering camera angles as I bumble about the cockpit during manuvers, but I was busy. ;) Sail On!

Day By Day
The best way to have a great start to the long holiday weekend is ..to go sailing! So, after work, I ran down to the dock, splashed Whimsy,. threw my cooler and camera aboard, and made my way out to the harbor where a nice 15+ knot breeze was waiting. It was a long day at work, so I took it easy and just unrolled the genoa - leaving the mainsail stowed on the boom. Whimsy was fine with the "lazy" rig configuration, and she still managed 6+ knots. Tom Ray came out to join in the fun aboard his Adventure Island Trimaran, and he was having a blast! Unbeknownst to me, he had called shortly after I left to see if I wanted to go sailing, and of course Wendy gave him the best possible reason why I couldn't join him ...because I was already sailing!!! We had a great time, and I hope you all can too! I hope you all can enjoy the 4th of July weekend wherever you are, and Sail On!





Short Sail On The Long Day
A short sail on the longest day of the year turned out to be great fun! Unlike every day for the past two weeks, the wind was perfect, the temperature was below 90F, and there were no thunderstorms nearby! Whimsy and I took advantage of the near ideal conditions, and enjoyed some really great sailing on the first day of summer - which is rare. Hope you can enjoy the ride!

Single handed operation of the Jeanneau Yacht 57 By: Ian Van
I have spoke to lot's of clients and potential buyers who ask the same question. Can this yacht be handled by myself or shorthanded? I always answer yes the reasons are that when you get up to a vessel of 50ft or greater it actually becomes easier believe it or not. The reason for this is you start finding bow thrusters on 50+ yachts along with electric winches and in Jeanneau's case the way we order the yachts 53 + electric Genoa furler's. all of these options and with the new modern hull design make single handling a vessel of this size very easy. Actually I even find it easier to sail this 57 then my own Jeanneau 39i P.V. I hope that you find this video helpful in explaining what I'm trying to say and if you would like additional information on the Jeanneau product or are looking to buy or sell a yacht please feel free to contact me at any time day or night at 1-619-507-4416 or ianvt@cruisingyachts.net I look forward to hearing from you.

Sum Fun
Having worked a long day on Tuesday, I was able to work a short day on Friday - and so there was only one thing to do! Sail baby!!! It was the second day in the past 16 days in which we got no rain, and there was enough wind to keep the boat moving nicely. A rare and wonderful summer day that turned out to be really fun! Enjoy the ride, and ...Sail On! Music: Herb Alpert & the TJB -- What Now My Love?





Stroll In The Sun
A warm light sailing day amounted to little more than a stroll in the sun. Whimsy made the best of the light breeze and managed to squeak out 4 knots of boat speed in the flat conditions. I had fun running onto the boat from the house with the camera, and noticed it may be time to get a new camera too! You may notice a "U" shaped blurb on the left side of the screen. Well, that is INSIDE the camera (..in as much as cleaning the lens can't remove it.) It's not too distracting (compared to some of my other movies where I have the lens completely fouled), but it is enough to drive me nuts(er) since I can't remove it. Anyway, it was a fair day - a little warm, a little light in the wind department, but better than just about anything else I would be doing on a Saturday morning! - Whimsy and I made the best of it! So, enjoy the ride, and Sail On! Music: AC Jobim / Estrada do Sol

Sailing Samba
Here's a brief Friday afternoon sail aboard Whimsy. We're dancing across Charlotte Harbor and watching all the boats go by. The date is Friday Jan 28, 2011 - and the weather was perfect! Whimsy was a well-behaved lady this day, and she self-steered very nicely in the fresh breeze (..reefed main and slightly rolled-up jib) so I could play around with the camera. Enjoy the ride!





A Whimsical Interlude
A collection of pictures taken of Whimsy, A 1969 Morgan 30. Thanks To Tom Ray, Butch Erny, and a few others who have taken so many good pictures of Whimsy being sailed on Charlotte Harbor!
