In my stop motion videos Jenny and Tom show the important sailing manoeuvres to you and they learn from their errors and from their success. Sailing instructor Captain Sailnator is fighting against the perils of everyday life – Harbourmaster Peter is standing on the jetty and has always something to grumble about. The stop motion videos are not filmed but composed of single images. 10 images result in 1 second of film.
The actors in the videos are: Jenny as helmswoman, Tom as crew, sailing instructor Captain Sailnator and Harbourmaster Peter! The videos are quite short and everything happens very quickly. You might miss some important sequences. So read my description about what is happening before watching and pause the movie if it goes too fast and play it back.
These are the sailing manoeuvres they will show you:
Leaving the dock →
Points of Sail →
Sailing up head to wind →
