OPSail 2012 – Participation

Participation in OPSail 2012 in Norfolk, Va.

What a great weekend.  Thousands of boaters escorting Tall Ships in the parade of sail.  This year the event OP Sail was held in conjunction with Norfolk’s Harborfest event. 

I was lucky to be able to sail in with the crowd of ships because I know the Captain so well.  I took pictures and amateur video.  So this is a combination of slide show and video to keep the time line correct.  Fireworks at the end came out pretty good even though my battery ran out! 

I’ll have to get scotch tape to keep that Canon Power Shot wheel in the proper place for shooting video next time!  Camera is a little tricky and some of the video was in low quality, sadly, but I patched it all together to make a YouTube movie anyway.  It was fun to eat the food, listen to concerts, see all the ships and visit with lots of family and friends.

    I love your OP Sail video! I felt like I was right there, too, and could almost smell the water.
    The Eagle is a beautiful ship. Thanks so much for sharing with us 🙂

      Thanks KK……but the camera does all the work…. I just push the button and pray I didn’t move something to change a setting LOL That boat would be too big for me too. Lots of work so I’m always happy to be a passenger. 😉
