Youngster is an enchanting old wooden racing boat- built in 1937 in Norway- belonging to the class called International One Design (IOD). Her owner, Ron Young, is a world-class sailor whose passion for the sport is infectious. I’ve had the privilege and good fortune to learn from Ron and crew on Youngster in San Francisco Bay races for almost one year now, so it seemed only natural to make my first short film featuring the boat and her skipper. One can hardly go wrong with two characters like these. Special thanks go out to the race crew for helping me (and letting me) shoot our races, and to Vincent Casalaina, world-class regatta videographer and crew/friend of Youngster, who provided all of the chase shots in this video. GoPros did the job on the boat. Hope you enjoy!
