Vintage sailing films

Dick Enersen is a friend of Scuttlebutt, and thankfully his company, Offshore Productions, has finally got its act together to be able to offer some of their vintage films on DVD. Here is an update from Dick:

* Heavy Weather Slalom: We shot the first, he thinks, Laser slalom in front of St Francis Yacht Club in 1973.Competitors included John Bertrand (US), Commodore Tompkins, Ed Bennett, Charlie Morgan, Don Trask and the late Carl van Duyne. "HWS" - 12 Minutes. Discount price = $ 9.00 plus shipping.

* The Best Defense: Ted Turner's splendid America's Cup victory in Newport, 1977. "BD" - 50 Minutes. Discount price = $ 15.00 plus shipping.

* Kilroy Was There: Three films include "KIALOA to Jamaica," shot on K3 in 1975; "Big Boats," shot on the Bay in 1978, with cameos by Kenny Keefe, David Vietor, Robbie Vaughan, The Flying Nun, and the late Don Vaughn; "Maximum Effort," the workup and first races of K4 in 1981, staring the usual suspects, plus Ron Holland, Jack Sutphen, and David Pedrick. "KTJ" - total of 88 Minutes. Discount price = $ 15.00 plus shipping.

Shipping is $ 2.50 (per order, not per DVD) within the US. Shipping elsewhere by arrangement. Note that the Offshore website is not fully functional, so use my e-mail address for questions and to place orders. Payment can be by check, or something called PayPal to Dick Enersen's account.

A portion of the proceeds will go to The Enersen Foundation, which supports youth sailing and other worthwhile activities.
