No I haven’t sold the Gull!
I have been rewatching a lot of David Sumner’s YouTube videos
There are a number of thinks I like about his videos firstly, to me, the pretty ambitious adventures he goes on in his Mirror. Clearly he knows the waters and plans meticulously plus he has adapted his mirror to be reefed easily. He is constantly changing sail plan to suit the conditions
Next he really goes into the details of his passage planning, with comments through the voyage of what he is doing. I usually watch on TV and follow on iPad chart
Not as sad as it sounds, these are hopefully the waters I will cruise next year
Finally his earlier videos are full of practical tips on his Mirror modifications and general seamanship.
A total inspiration… but now it’s back to the boat shed
