Hi, my name is Joe, I make tutorial videos for catamaran sailing.

I've made a lot videos to help other cat sailors around the world. To help navigate i've set up an index of videos.

Here you will find links to over 150 videos for catamaran sailors. Technique, fundamentals, maintenance, boat set-up and tuning, onboard with commentary, capsizes, pitchpoles, small disasters, tips and tricks. All from Wildwind Sailing Holidays in Vassiliki, Greece

you can find it at either of these locations:

Thanks for the great videos Joe,
You inspired me to "give it the beans!" And I am sure you have helped more people than you will know both now and in the future.



Currently #15 on the speedstick.. Looking for the top of the list!
I did that without trapeezing, Hopefully next season I will have a harness and can get out on the wire.

Hi, my name is Joe, I make tutorial videos for catamaran sailing.
Joe, you're a legend... thanks for creating all these video! Starting out new on a catamaran today would be much easier with the library of videos you've made. I appreciate the handful you had back 6 years ago when I got started. Keep up the great work!

I started following Joe's videos about seven years ago when I was rebuilding the rudder cams. etc. on my H16.

It is one thing to read in a forum about how to fix something or how to sail your boat, but actually watching a video with live commentary and multi view cameras makes it so much easier to understand.

Even though I've been sailing Hobies for over 25 years, I've learned so much from Joe's videos and feel more comfortable about sailing in heavier air while "giving it the beans".

This last season at Wildwinds, Joe was cranking out a new helpful video every day. I was having a hard time keeping up with watching them.

Maybe it is an English thing, but I really get a kick out of listening to all of Joe's expressions and commentary (along with his sacrificing his body during pitchpoles, water skiing, etc.)

At 69, I have going to Wildwinds on my bucket list since they have "champagne sailing conditions" (great wind and low chop), "valet parking" of your boat along with quite an impressive fleet of all types of performance sail boats and staff.

Hi Eric, Tim, Bradley,

thanks for your kind comments. I am in a unique and position to be out here with the facilities that I have to hand and the great conditions, the least that I can do is share what I've learnt is the least that i could do.
Hearing that it's working makes it all worthwhile!

Eric - getting out on the trapeze (maybe even with a crew) I think you'll be heading to the top ten easily!

Joe!

Big ups for generating content. I watch every one of them. Here's my submission to the global speed stick sailing on the Sacramento River at Sandy Beach County Park! No Trapeze use that day!
