    They are just video blogs, if you like them, fine, if you don’t like them, fine. Just don’t ram your preference down peoples throats because you think your preference is the only valid one. At the end of the day, what are these bloggers doing that warrants such strong opinions about like and dislike? After all watching is entirely voluntary.

    People keep going on about bikinis, why don't they just watch pornography instead of pretending they are interested in looking at AWB's
    Agree entirely with that , have not seen Embla for a while , is that the Norwegian guy ??

    Have not watched Vagy for some time now , but definitely revived my interest and respect for them
    With their recent current voyage , really fed up with bikini and turquoise seas , hope fully Vagy can set a new direction with their attitude and influence . Sophie and Ryan do nothing for me

    Could you explain what what distinguishes a simple recommendation from "ram your preference down peoples throats because you think your preference is the only valid one"? And which post in this thread constituted ramming preferences down throats?

    I don't understand, nor am I inclined to understand, the "killing children" thread drift. A desperate search to be offended? I certainly didn't see anything remotely offensive in this thread.
    Anyhow, my faint objection to Kittiwake & Fair Isle blogs is the preachy nature of the commentary by people who seem to have a rather rudimentary knowledge of European cruising. By all means, flash the flesh and express wonder regarding matters marine but perhaps it's best not to lecture on subjects about which little information is held.

    I'd rather be tethered to a pad eye than tethered to an iPad.

    I don't find Kittiwake at all preachy - part of the fun is that they are learning it as they go along.

    I think the Fair Isle blog is really aimed at friends & family back home who are not sailing experts, the rest of us can tag along if we feel inclined.

    What you fail to appreciate in general is the groundswell of new interest in blue water sailing inspired via YouTube, I think it is the only thing saving yachting from complete economic implosion and an alternative future that requires owners of yachts over 20 years old to shell out £5000 in end of life statutory enviro scrappage fees. These new generation YouTubers often start with little knowledge, but make up for it with youthful good health and enthusiasm. Their newly gained experiences are not broadcast at sclerotic yachting has-beens that hang around a ridiculous British backwater like Scuttlebutt. The newgen sailing YouTubers are promoting their life style and offering advice to the next intake of under 40 newbee blue water wanderers with zero experience.

    I get your point, it's great for yachting in general. But..'end of life', really? My two gaff cutters, both afloat and in commision, have a combined age of 186 years
