I'd like to see this produced.

I am equally sure that the moment it arrives through people's doors, other copies will be ripped for mates, which limits the effort and value of pressing hard copies.

Therefore:
1. I don't mind paying an couple of quid, or even a 5er, for it.
2. How much would it save if we just host it (at full resolution/quality - as an mkv possibly), password protected, on my server? No shipping, no dvd's, no covers needed?
3. What could be done for 420 vs the full 500?

Thought I better get one on order as I enjoyed watching last years dvd, and also support you doing a great job of keeping this classic race goingnot that you making a profit anyway

PS ... not sure if it is the way I viewed last years dvd on the computer but slightly frustratingly the aspect ratios were slightly off ie ... a touch squashed in appearance but still enjoyable though

Cowes 2011 Film on it's way soon

Thanks for all of your support for this project.

The number of purchases is now in the late 40's, and I have decided to "push the tit" on this one, although I will not be cashing any of your cheques, using PayPal £ until I am sure that I have got a good product to send from Winslow Post Office!

David Graham Smith's interviews are great fun, the lawyer turned broadcaster certainly gives Jake Humphrey a run for his money!

Please keep ordering, I thank you all for your patience - Cowes 2011 Film on it's way soon.

I have seen David Graham Smith this afternoon and have all of his HD footage of Cowes.

Working through it now to upload to the editor over night.

Here is a "Screen Shot" that I may use to sell more films on RibNet.

Rob looks like he's just got back from a days sailing, I look like I was towed behind the boat. Can't wait to do it again.
