The Guga Hunters documentary film is due to be screened on BBC 2 next Thursday at 9pm.
However, you can view a ten minute clip today via the link below.
I was surprised at just how young the film crew are but, for me, this makes the film all the more important.
This is what it’s all about. A new generation coming through, showing passion and belief, taking an interest, carrying things forward, ensuring a culture continues.
Director and Producer Mike Day, is seen second from left. He is a qualified yacht skipper and his brother Matt Day, second from right, is an ex-GBR Olympic team sailor and RYA Coach. Both have ocean sailing experience but filming the guga hunters proved a stern test of their skills. Aaron Sterritt, far left, has previously sailed across the Pacific Ocean from New Zealand to Panama. The team also included a marine engineer, Will Brown, right, (who came in very handy!). Will has extensive offshore sailing experience. Producer Andy Maas, centre, enjoyed his first nautical experience.
