Famous sailfar Alberg 30- Yves Gelinas and Jean-du-Sud
« on: November 13, 2015, 08:38:44 PM »
Had the honor of meeting Yves and getting a personal tour of Jean-du-Sud. He stopped in Portsmouth, Va on his way to Martinique. It was quite an experience to aboard his board knowing it history. he showed me all the modification he has made of the years. Below is a link to post containing photos of my tour.

I watched the trailer (again) and it struck me, the film is very much like today?s go-pro films with lots of different angles including aerial  footage with a kite - but he did it with a 16mm film kamera!
I look for subtle places, beaches, riversides and the ocean's lazy tides.
I don't want to be in races, I'm just along for the ride.

SeaHusky, I asked him about that because when I was aboard I noticed he had a GoPro. He told me the camera he used was his father's that was purchased when Yves was a young boy.....amazing!

You mean ALL IS NOT LOST when the mast comes down? ::)

Yes, he is a real sailor.  Even when he reached land, he repaired the mast himself!

I envy your opportunity to visit that famous Alberg 30 and its owner, Yves Galinas.

What is you schedule on the ferry boat?
