YouTubes we like (2/2022)

  • Sailing Bohemia
  • We like this series of videos because of their excellent drone footage showing the beauty of the Sea of Cortez. Their experiences are also very comparable to ours although we don’t move around as much! This video is their episode 24, filmed at one of our most favorite places in the Sea of Cortez.  We can be seen on the right hand side of the frame in one of their final shots on this video (although we did not meet them until a few months later.) They started their cruising adventure in San Francisco and as of their latest video in February 2022 they are along the pacific coast of Southern Mexico.
  • Sailing Uma
  • This video picks up their journey into the Arctic Circle as they transit to Svalbard in the very North Atlantic in 2021. One of the most popular cruising YouTube series, their storytelling is interesting and their film-making is superior. Another fun fact, they have been traveling far and wide via electric propulsion, resulting in a carbon footprint much smaller than many of us cruisers.
  • Reckless Abandon
  • And now for something completely different. A friend of ours who hiked the entire Appalachian Trail in 2021. Lots of prepping, which we can relate a bit to cruising.

These are miscellaneous MOV files, they don’t run long.

Click on a title below, a QuickTime logo will appear onscreen, and wait for the player screen to load. The video may run automatically, otherwise press the play (arrow) button in lower left corner of window to run the video. (This is a cheap point-and-shoot still camera we are using so the image quality is not always the best.)
