This is a sailing video of two O'Day Mariners exploring Percy Priest Lake in Nashville, Tennessee. The footage was captured primarily using a FLIP mini HD cam.
The first Mariners were built nearly 50 years ago and are still produced today. For more information about Mariners, check out the Mariner Class Association website at usmariner.org/ or stuartmarine.com/ the builder of the Mariner.
Following the disastrous earthquake in Haiti, eleven idealists depart from Holland with their square rigged sailing cargo vessel. Their mission is to bring aid to the people of Haiti. But in the never-ending waters, the good intentions of their heroic mission elaborate in heated discussions about the nearing end of the world. Does the captain know what he is fighting for?

Set sail in the British Virgin Islands. The turquoise sea looks good enough to drink, but we bring provisions for a week anyways - enough to go island-hopping, shipwreck diving, and cave snorkeling. As night falls in a sea of anchor lights, I find myself surrounded by stars above and below.
Scenes include Tortola Island, Jost Van Dyke, Virgin Gorda, Sandy Cay, Cooper Island, Trellis Bay, Anegada, the Bitter End Yacht Club, Foxy's Taboo, the Indians, the Baths, snorkeling the caves at Norman Island, and diving the RMS Rhone shipwreck.
The BVI are a unique place, almost like an "island city of sailors." At night, it's quite a moment being surrounded by a dozen other boats in what resembles a neighborhood at sea. We lived on a 40-foot sailboat for a week - with just 3 people aboard, we had our hands full raising sails, hauling scuba tanks, cooking, and cleaning! Of course, we did have our share of problems. On our last night, we ran out of fresh water in the tanks as we realized we only filled one of the two tanks - so we bathed in drinking water and drank soda :)
