British Virgin Islands "Voyage" video


British Virgin Islands "Voyage" videoSet sail in the British Virgin Islands. The turquoise sea looks good enough to drink, but we bring provisions for a week anyways - enough to go island-hopping, shipwreck diving, and cave snorkeling. As night falls in a sea of anchor lights, I find myself surrounded by stars above and below. Scenes include Tortola Island, Jost Van Dyke, Virgin Gorda, Sandy Cay, Cooper Island, Trellis Bay, Anegada, the Bitter End Yacht Club, Foxy's Taboo, the Indians, the Baths, snorkeling the caves at Norman Island, and diving the RMS Rhone shipwreck. The BVI are a unique place, almost like an "island city of sailors." At night, it's quite a moment being surrounded by a dozen other boats in what resembles a neighborhood at sea. We lived on a 40-foot sailboat for a week - with just 3 people aboard, we had our hands full raising sails, hauling scuba tanks, cooking, and cleaning! Of course, we did have our share of problems. On our last night, we ran out of fresh water in the tanks as we realized we only filled one of the two tanks - so we bathed in drinking water and drank soda . . .

Bahamas Sea of Abaco Sailing Timelapse video



Bahamas Sea of Abaco Sailing Timelapse video - Filmed over a week of sailing the Bahamas in May 2013. The seas here are shallow and calm, colored aquamarine green and sheltered within barrier cays. The entry into one of the harbors is too shallow for any sailboat to pass. So we await for high tide, lured by the movement of the moon and stars. As the water rises and we finally sail in, old lighthouses and colonial buildings lay scattered like remnants of a dream. There's a particular feeling as night begins to fall in Abaco, where the lighthouse is still hand-wound and fueled by kerosene. Ships bathe under spinning beams of light. After dinner ashore, I walk across a narrow piece of land to view the Atlantic on the other side. Shallow reefs break ocean waves into tranquil Bahamian waters, where knee-deep beaches stretch far into the horizon. We lose track of time and as the tides fall once again, the passage out becomes impassable. We find ourselves lost to the charm of the sea. Scenes include Treasure Cay, Hope Town, Little Harbour, Marsh Harbour, Man-o-War Cay, Great Guana Cay, and White Town with stops by Fowl Cay, Tahiti Beach, and Sandy Cay.
