The Westward Cup 2012 And Isle Of Wight Film Festival 2013

Having been involved with Yacht Mariquita for the past four / five years I was commissioned by theĀ  skipper Jim Thom to make a short documentary film to mark her centenary. Along with my colleague Hamish Roots we headed off to Cowes to film Mariquita competing in the Westward Cup against her great rivals Elenora and Mariette. It was a great week and Cowes served up some dramatic conditions especially on the final day when I was given the opportunity to film on board. The documentary film is now finished and we are planning to show it at a special screening at the Isle of Wight Film Festival which is being held in Ventnor this August.
