Sailing The San Juans

In summer 2010, we shot this ‘home video’ style, simply to casually document our month long sailing trip. After towing the sailboat from Kansas City, MO to Seattle, WA, we sailed up and around the San Juan Islands, eventually ending in Vancouver, BC. From there we flew up to northern British Columbia to film a promo video for a fishing outfitter. Even though the trip appears to be all smiles, there were a few very intense situations that needed our attention more than the camera’s. One of them being an unexpected midnight storm with 12 foot waves.

Looking back, that month on the boat was the point in our lives where we transitioned from boys to men.
