    Sailing into baby Hurricane Lorenzo – Ep101 – The Sailing Frenchman

    Nice, lots of chips, sweet potatoes Thanks Haz, and Meta, delicious, JB, how’s your food ? It’s good ? If it was bad would you dare telling Haz that it’s bad ? I’d take my chances He’s twice bigger than you… Yeah so I’d had to be careful, I’ll shout from the other end of the boat People often ask what’s the difference between racing and cruising ? The main difference is that when you race you break your sails, you fix your sails, to break them again But when cruising you just accept to go slower. So now we need to work on fixing our sails, except from Steve…

    Fieldsports Britain – Flight lines and one liners with George Digweed

    [Music] Welcome to Fieldsports Britain. Coming up we have got some flight line fun. George Digweed is shooting pigeons in passage. First up tragedy, it is the Lupton household. [Music] Unfortunately this week’s show gets a little bit personal. I wasn’t really sure whether I wanted to show this or share it on air, but really I think it is only fair to we need to show the ups and downs we go through, our pursuits and our passions. Roy is talking about his old female goshawk. We featured her just over a year ago when he brought her out of retirement for a last couple of hunting seasons. He…

    TROLLING PIKE IN AUTUMN – Learn How To (Q&A) | Team Galant

    It’s Autumn and with it come trees with brown leaves and pike trolling. Fish! Hooked up with a nice pike. Insane. Lovely fat pelagic pike. I usually end sessions with a meter fish, now I start the session with one. Hello fishermen! During the Summer we performed some trolling for pike … however we got so excited to try it again, so Niclas purchased new trolling equipment. Today we’ll be trolling for pike during Autumn. Are you excited Niclas? Of course, we had a blast last time. We caught some nice ones actually. It was. When checking the sonar out we can spot a lot of bait fish. This like…

    Travel With Chatura | මුහුද යට කිමිදී හක් බෙල්ලන් අල්ලන හැටි (Vlog 212) [EN Sub]

    Kirinda is one of the historical harbours in Sri Lanka fishermen say government doesn’t pay enough attention There are no harbours along Oluwil, Arugambay or trincomalee This side there is Nilwella,Ambalanthota Hambanthota Kudawella However the government doesn’t owe allegiance As a result the industry has collapsed entirely. No place to make ice, filling with sand They are facing many difficulties (speaking indistinct language) removing sea whelks? are these whelks? yes! because of the slipperiness boats cant move Usually this is visible here however, these tiny shrimp-like whelks get attached to the boats as a result boats cant move it becomes heavier so have to remove them all once a week…

    Surfing at 30kts with a 40 tons racing boat: what could go wrong? – Ep97 – The Sailing Frenchman

    Boat Launching at Minicoy Island, Lakshadweep

    One fine afternoon I was taking a stroll along the sunny, turquoise beach of Minicoy island ..
