• I Broke My Camera…While Sailing on A Boat

    I guess there’s nothing more cliche than posting this video up months after it has become popular and run its course. However, there is a perfectly good reason why if you can’t already infer from the title. Last Saturday was the Treasure Island Sailing Center’s first sailing day of the season, which equals free sailing and free kayaking. I’ve never been on a sailboat before so I called up some good friends and made it happen. To say the least, the sailing experience was pretty cool as The Lonely Island Boys can attest to. I’m sure I’ll never understand what it means to live life at sea, but I got a glimpse of why people can’t live without it.

    Sailing around Treasure Island was everything it was cracked up to be. I was moving around the boat, taking crazy shots in awkward positions on my trusty Sony digital, and making sure the boom didn’t swing around and bludgeon me on the head. I did all this without damaging my camera AT ALL.

    Then to pass the time, we thought it a good idea to go kayaking. Boarding the kayak proved tricky but my balance held up and I didn’t fall. But just when I had two legs into the kayak, my camera fell out of my life jacket pocket into the kayak footrests where pockets of water collect. And so far, the camera has not turned on since.

    And that’s how a free day of sailing cost me $200. And that’s why you’re seeing this music video instead of pictures of my first time on sail boat.

    Oh dear! Not a good way to experience the “joys of sailing”. Not that I’m sure I believe in those joys. The only time I’ve ever sailed, in a little boat, noone taught me to steer. Last thing I remember was sailing directly towards the horizon (and oncoming wall of seafog)whilst a panicking instuctor tried to convince a novice canoeist to rescue me!

    Lol that sounds worse that my experience. And to be honest, I had a really great time sailing, it would’ve been perfect if my camera didn’t eff up. But I guess that’s my fault. The worse part about it is when you lose something or it breaks on you, you have this strong urge to replace it.

    Horror story, indeed. Hey, at least you now have incentive to buy a new and better trusty camera in this down economy. Lets just hope they lower the prices. (Ha.)
