After my last video I was asked if I could make an up to date version when I was next out on the water.
I hadn’t actually used my GoPro camera for six years, and wondered if it still worked; I dug it out, charged it up and to my surprise the battery hadn’t died.
I mounted it on Paramour 2’s windscreen and set off on my patrol for the Pier & Harbour Co. This is just a check of the surroundings, shoreline and boats etc… to keep an occasional presence on the water. It’s great for me as I get to give the boat a run and be afloat for an hour or so. It’s even possible to forget what’s going on ashore for a while…
You’ll notice in particular the number of empty moorings (plus the sunken one I almost ran over), and all the boats on the hard at the boatyards, which would normally be afloat by now.
Before I get complaints, I wasn’t doing 45 knots around the river, I have speeded the film up in places… honestly!
A 2020 edit of some film I shot in January / February 2012, while out on my kayak. Being a very sunny, calm day early in the year, the atmosphere is just like now- stunningly beautiful, but not another soul around.
I created this especially for our current situation, so come paddling with me…
Paramour 2 captured in action for the 1st. time
Sorry to be posting so much lately, but I am excited to have Paramour 2 on the water! In case you were wondering...I buzzed the ferry on its last run earlier, and skipper Sam Norman got this great sequence of Paramour 2 in action. This was at about 26 knots.Posted by St Mawes Kayaks on Tuesday, 19 March 2019
