The power of the human spirit

This is the first properly edited video we have ever posted. It is in the format we hope to use for all videos going forward which will be themed "Lady Roslyn in under 3 minutes".

I'm not going to preempt the narrative, but the day that the story relates to was certainly a highlight of our summer so far.

The video was edited on Adobe Premier Pro. Hopefully my editing skills will improve and speed up over time. The video you see is less than 3 minutes long but took almost 15 hours of editing to get it to the finished product. I have maximum respect for all the YouTube Sailing Channels out there with the sailors onboard putting out regular videos. I have no idea how they find the time to film, collate and edit all the footage.

I'll keep trying, but I see that the photography side of our output will outnumber the video content for no other reason than I don't want to miss out on any experiences along the way.

About us

We are Nic and Catherine Hodgson from Cape Town, South Africa. Our plan is to commute between Cape Town and LADY ROSLYN, spending a few seasons cruising and exploring the Mediterranean Sea, an Atlantic crossing, time in the Caribbean and with luck, a season or two in the Pacific.

Along the way, we hope that family and friends will join us.

For now though, we are taking it slowly and enjoying life one trip at a time.

but for life not to escape us"
