Dougal on the telly

Post by roger » Thu Nov 26, 2015 6:45 pm

The one show did a bit on the Mirror the other night. ... w-24112015

Dougal stars, about 24 minutes in.

A good bit of sailing telly for these days. Well done Dougal

Yes, nice piece David, it might be a way to get more people on the water. perhaps you could suggest to the TV team about doing an article on classic boats? It would be good to spread the word (broadcast :D )

Thank you Chris and Roger,

You'd not believe how long it took to get that filmed - I was miked up for over 90 minutes.

But it does show one thing in great clarity. Talking or writing about a boat/class of boats is NOTHING without a context to set them in.

There has to be an 'angle' to the story that is bigger than the boat itself.
