Whitby Regatta 2018 - Greasy Pole

The Second of the vids I've been able to get from the 2018 Whitby Regatta is up, and is of the Greasy Pole competition on the lifeboat pier.
Still not as good as the footage as I got back in 2016, as I couldn't get a decent position in the scrum assembled on the pier to watch up close, and had to basically stretch my arm up as high as I could with the camera pointed in roughly the right direction, not really being able to see the tilt viewscreen on the camera because it was in a position I couldn't really see it without burning out my retina's from staring in the direction of the Sun.

Full playlists of this and previous Whitby Regatta footage I've recorded can be found through my videos website:

Whitby Regatta 2018 - The Raft Race

The first of my video clips from the 2018 Whitby Regatta has been released onto my YouTube channel, and it's of the Raft Race. Another low participation effort this year (2 Rafts), and the footage doesn't really pick up until after they cross the finishing line.

More footage from this year's Regatta still to come... next to sort out is the cackhanded footage of the Greasy Pole Contest that came after the Raft Race, and was shot best I could among the scrum on the Lifeboat Pier.

Cook 250 Whitby Event Footage


Back on 6th July 2018 there was a "Captain Cook 250" event in Whitby with a replica of Captain Cook's ship recently acquired from Stockton, and a couple of tall ships sailing into the harbour.

It just about finished me off getting into position to get the footage, and after many delays I've finally got footage cobbled together into something I could upload to YouTube and (eventually) my other video channels as appropriate.

Whitby Snow 2018

Back in January 2013 I shot a video of a snow weather event in my local area, then stitched the clips together into a full video that I uploaded to YouTube, and it has sinced notched up over 10,000 views.

I had a long wait to see enough snow again round here to be able to film the sequel, but on 27th February 2018, it finally happened.
It's taken me a while to get round to editing the footage (31st July / 1st August), but now it's finally up (see above, or Click Here to view it on my YouTube Channel).

Of course the original snow vid is still uploaded, as well as a less well viewed prequel to it from 2010.

More of my online video content can be found by going to the JDUCK1979 Vids website I knocked together.
