VIDEO! Rowdy Arctic weather!


In previous posts we’ve mentioned some of the rough conditions we had to contend with in the Arctic last summer, both at sea and at anchor. Now we’ve got a video out on Ocean Navigator magazine’s YouTube channel that shows what this was like at anchor. Check it out!

Thanks very much to Mantus Anchors for holding Celeste in place this summer, and to Ocean Navigator and Mantus Anchors for making this video possible! (Please note that although Ocean Navigator approached Mantus to sponsor the video (and they agreed), all this footage was taken well before we had any thought of licensing it.) 

Thanks for watching! Hope you enjoy!

  1. Yay, you got one of your videos out there! It definitely made me appreciate that we are in warm conditions, even when things get gnarly (as we expect them to here in Raivavae in the next few days, at least relatively speaking). Great promo for Mantus as well! Cheers, Jessie

    • Yes we did! First little step into the world of video 🙂 And I definitely don’t wish those conditions on anyone… Standing anchor watches isn’t much fun and the strain on us and the boat when it’s blowing 45, with gusts to 50, for days on end starts to be a bit much… Thanks for watching, and glad you liked the video! And thanks again for your scuba tips for British Columbia – we’re looking forward to it!! Have fun in French Polynesia – can’t tell you how much we love all those islands – so, so beautiful!!

  2. Gotta love a decent anchor!
