Storm Off Hatteras!

About the author


  1. Just love watching your videos! Maybe I'm wrong but it seems you're dubbing audio sometimes and I find it a bit distracting. Just seems a bit inauthentic. I'd actually prefer bad audio! πŸ™‚
    Anyway thumbs up as always.

  2. πŸ’–πŸ¦‹πŸŒ²β›΅οΈ I hope the both of you have a wonderful Christmas and a fantastic new year fair winds πŸ‡¦πŸ‡ΊπŸ’–πŸ¦‹πŸŒˆβ›΅οΈβ›΅οΈβ›΅οΈπŸ·πŸ·πŸ·

  3. I learned to sail on tributary of Chesapeake Bay. Grew up one mile from beach where we used to dive for oysters. Informative videos. Watching since tv series.

  4. 2:53 Looks like some squall lines I've seen on Lake Ontario, not the Atlantic. 4:30: Sheryl, you looked as if you were invoking Norse gods with that well-timed lightning! 8:26: good points with worst-case scenarios, Paul.

  5. Yours was the first sailing content I found on the Web over five years ago!
    Fantastic new vessel!
    Thank You for the years of inspiring content

  6. Merry Christmas! What a great little boat tender they had at the boat yard for maneuvering boats! That mainsail winch handle would be much better if it were larger, quite small for such a large sail and especially if you need to furl it quickly.

  7. Watched so many of your shows, outstanding as always. Had to say your editing is top notch. Hope you won’t need to use the manual winch to furl the mainsail, that looked painful 😜

  8. Smooth professional sailing, videography, and editing. Looks like the latest Distant shores is a treat of sailing goodies that has not let you down to date. Thanks for sharing Cheryl & Paul!

  9. We had a Selden manual in-mast furling system with a vertical baton large roach main on our Hunter 410. It was some time ago, but I have to say I cannot imagine having a larger boat without it. Worked perfectly while bringing in as long as you maintained control of the outhaul with the depowered sail.

  10. Great video. Question about in mast furling: how come they always make the coordination of keeping tension on the sail manual? I would think it could be fulling automated? I wonder if in mast furling is better for the sail cloth? I would think so because its being wrapped vertically so moisture can run down and out rather than pool in the folds of the sail when done horizontally into a bag plus the sail is wrapped rather than crumpled up in a horizontal bag. What are your thoughts?

  11. Hey Guys. Just wanted to wish you all the very best for a Great Christmas and great sailing on your New adventure to the pacific in 2020. cheers.

  12. Ominous yet awesome storm system. Reading a few comments seems people wanted you to sail through the middle of it! I think I’d rather see it from a distance.

  13. Thanks for the review of the Selden mast review. Janice and I just purchased an Antares and we are getting the in mast furling as well. Hope all is well and hope to see you soon!

  14. Great video the vertical battens in your main sail how did they perform as keeping the sail shape verses a horizontal batten

  15. Another great show , just a note re the inmast furled although I’m sure you are on to it, A better winch handle for the manual furled would be prudent, and a set up to release the out haul at the mast so one person can do it maybe also a good idea. You may only ever need it once but the once may be critical . Other than that I am extremely envious.

  16. I might have mis-seen, but there appears to be a fair amount of what appears to be rust on the stainless. Is that common after only one year?

  17. I must have just missed meeting you! I was hanging out with John, Tadji, Nathan, and Vivian at Spring Cove in early October– was that when you were there?… or, I'm guessing by the weather it might have been earlier in the season…

  18. Are you guys still in Maryland? We are back from Spain visiting our family over Christmas. It would be fun to meet up!
