Hold fast

Hold Fast from Moxie Marlinspike

Stories of maniac sailors, anarchist castaways, and the voyage of the S/V Pestilence...
This is a great short on 4 people who spent some time fixing up a sailboat and then sailing it down to the Bahamas.

Over the course of two winters, four members of the Anarchist Yacht Club rescued a derelict boat from the inhospitable waters of Ft. Lauderdale, named it the S/V Pestilence, and sailed south to Haiti.
Hold Fast describes what drew these friends to the ocean, and tells the story of what they discovered in the sea.
It paints a picture of the S/V Pestilence in the context of all the sailing maniacs who have come before them, and ultimately attempts to suggest that the secret is always to begin.

Take note: it takes a second to get into it, but becomes addictive.
As one commenter wrote: this is a jewel of sailing, low budget videos!
If you will survive through the first minute or so with way too much black in editing, you enter an over one hour long story with almost NPR / PBS documentary quality...
