F-Class « YachtWorld UK

Saved by uncleflo on February 23rd, 2019.

A well-designed sailing yacht is a thing of pure beauty, here are just 10 of the world’s finest… in my eyes at least! Velsheda
When she was launched in 1933, the J-Class yacht Velsheda represented the cutting edge of technology and sophistication and won races against all the great yachts of her day. However, she only was only used for three seasons and after World War 2 it looked as though none of these great yachts would ever sail again. King George V’s Britannia had already been scuttled south of the Isle of Wight, and Velsheda became a houseboat, firmly embedded into the River Hamble Mud for almost 50 years. In the 1970s she was saved from being cut up for scrap after being bought by a group of enthusiasts led by Bembridge bank manager Royce Pook. She then became the first of the class to be restored – in near original specification – thanks to Yorkshire scrap metal merchant Terry Brabant who bought her in 1984. Further refits after Brabant’s ownership saw her refurbished into the spectacular luxury yacht we see today.

The J Class Association

https://www.jclassyachts.com/class

Saved by uncleflo on February 23rd, 2019.

The J Class Association (JCA) was founded to protect the interests of the Class, present and future. To keep the J-Class fleet and races alive and to encourage new build yachts to enter the field, new Class rules were established for the construction of Replica Rebuilds from original plans. One of the key drivers of the J-Class revival was the decision of the J-Class Association to allow aluminium and other materials to be used as a hull construction material. This reinforced the renewed interest among owners to build J-class yachts. After a performance analysis by Gerard Dijkstra of the existing J's as well as the designs that were allowed to be built under the new JCA rules, a specific J Class handicap system was developed in order to enable all yachts built to the J Class designs to race against each other regardless of size, sail area or hull construction.

Sailing Uma - Our Boat

Saved by uncleflo on February 23rd, 2019.

They say a journey of a thousand miles, begins with a single step. For us, rather than a step, our journey began with a leap. We sold everything we didn’t need, cars, computers, motorcycles, furniture — everything. What we couldn’t sell, we donated and we used the money to buy a sailboat. Our boat “Uma” is a 1972 Pearson 36. She is neither fancy and expensive, nor cheap and flimsy—to us, she is perfect. We wanted a name that carried with it the motivation and rational that led us to buy her in the first place. Her name was inspired by the Portuguese number 1 (uma), meaning first or primary. She is our first step

Can You Fly Drones In London?

Saved by uncleflo on December 20th, 2018.

Drones are big business, and thousands of you would have received your very own for Christmas this year. The plummeting cost of components and the ease of buying remote controlled aircraft off the Internet has skyrocketed the use of consumer drones across the globe. Headlines are made every day, whether that’s new drones at CES, drones almost hitting passenger jets, or drones spying on unassuming victims. The CAA (Civil Aviation Authority) has already prosecuted two drone operators in the UK for breaching safety regulations, with numerous other investigations ongoing. In October, a man was arrested for operating a drone over Manchester City’s football stadium in a match with Tottenham Hotspur.

Fundamentals of Restoration Projects

http://www.docksidereports.com/fundamentals_of_restoration_proj.htm

Saved by uncleflo on November 29th, 2018.

During my three decades as a marine surveyor, I've always been amazed about two aspects of restoring old boats what, in the marine trade, is known as a refit. First is that the people who can best afford to do them, usually don't. Followed by those who can't afford such projects are usually the ones that attempt them. Such projects usually go wrong because the owner failed to appreciate the costs, and to estimate them in advance. There are no good deals on fixer uppers with boats. There is just expensive and more expensive. Money is the name of the game, and if you haven't got it, then it's a mistake to think that you can do a refit on the cheap.

The Making of a DIY Brushless Gimbal With Arduino

https://www.instructables.com/id/DIY-Brushless-Gimbal-with-Arduino/

Saved by uncleflo on November 28th, 2018.

This is a story of my third project with cheap gyro and Arduino. After the earlier two projects, Easy Inverted Pendulum and 3D Calligraphy, I have thought of making Camera Gimbal with Arduino. Then I had three policies for the project: Equipped with standard camera bigger than GoPro; Simple as possible with no special device nor kit; Bootstrap: Refer to fewer websites as possible and finish with no imitation. At the start of the project, I had intention of making 2-axis gimbal with Servo Motors. But it has been made clear that it is difficult to see adequate performance using Servo Motor. Consequently a 3-axis gimbal with Brushless Motors and Arduino has been made. INTRODUCTION VIDEO below shows the effectiveness of the DIY gimbal. In the video, pretty noise would be heard suddenly. It is left without any reduction to show strengths and weaknesses of the gimbal. Arbitrary film editing is avoided.

Ricoh’s Theta V Is Sharper and More Powerful, But Let's Talk About 360 Video...

https://gizmodo.com/ricoh-s-theta-v-is-sharper-and-more-powerful-but-lets-1798544146

Saved by uncleflo on October 8th, 2018.

Ricoh has been in the 360-degree camera game for a long time—way before johnny-come-latelies like Samsung and Nikon. Things started back in 2013 with the original Ricoh Theta and now four years later, the company is back with the $430 Theta V. New features include 4K video and spatial audio capture, however, even with all those bells and whistles I’m having a hard getting excited about Ricoh’s new camera. The problem isn’t with the camera itself, it’s the medium. As I think back on the thousands of videos I watched since 2013, not a single 360 video sticks out in my a something truly memorable. Even when I dig a little deeper and consider things like Casey Neistat’s video about droneboarding or a tour through California Extreme with Steve Lin and Drew Scanlon, the source of the white blinking guy meme, I can’t help but think that both of these clips would have been better as boring flat clips.

In-Depth Diving With A Vintage Tornek-Rayville

Saved by uncleflo on June 5th, 2018.

A mile offshore from San Benedicto, a volcanic island in the Eastern Pacific, and 75 feet deep, I raise my GoPro to take a selfie. I want to preserve this moment, not only because it’s the first dive of what promises to be a truly memorable adventure, but also because on my wrist is a very rare watch. I’m wearing a vintage Tornek-Rayville TR-900, a watch built by Blancpain for the United States Navy in the 1960s, and this is likely the only surviving one that has been fully serviced and suitably sealed for modern dive use. It’s a photo for bragging rights, or perhaps an epitaph, should I be the one to lose or flood such a rare horological treasure.

Do you like TV ads? How about magazine ads? Do you pay attention to them or do you just skip them? Now let me ask you another question: Do you like stories? Do you enjoy being immersed into an exciting narrative allowing you to escape reality and enter a new world? I like stories. I like to let my brain follow the imaginative flow of a good story and visualise the narrative, the heroes, the actions and happenings of what I am reading, watching or experiencing. As a marketer you are probably used to relying more on hard facts and lists of benefits rather than engaging stories. That might have worked in the Mad Man era, but in the world of real-time, non-stop social interactions and online content it no longer does.

StoryMapJS is a free tool to help you tell stories on the web that highlight the locations of a series of events. It is a new tool, yet stable in our development environment, and it has a friendly authoring tool. There are a couple ways you can make a StoryMap. Maps: Add a slide for each place in your story. Setting the location is as easy as a text search for the name, address, or latitude and longitude. You can change the visual style of your map with a few presets, or you can use Mapbox to create your own style. Really big images: You can tell stories with large photographs, works of art, historic maps, and other image files. Because it works best with pixel-dense files, we call these gigapixel. Setting one up requires you to host files on a web server.

Panama’s indigenous Guna tribe have called San Blas home for hundreds of years. But the entire idyllic archipelago is at risk of being underwater within a matter of decades. Ever since I’d arrived in Panama, I’d been hearing about San Blas, an archipelago of more than 350 islands in the Caribbean Sea. The suggestions to visit came both from Panama locals and a friend back home in New York, who claimed a day spent boating around San Blas was by far the most exciting adventure she had during her travels.

The Electric Car Charging Etiquette

Saved by uncleflo on December 15th, 2016.

The dos and don'ts of fuelling your petrol-saving vehicle. A few years ago, you could venture into some beneficent municipality and find — in the public garage, or the library car lot, or right in the middle of Main Street — a couple of plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) charging stations. These cities, along with college and corporate campuses, were demonstrating their commitment to preserving the environment, offering free power and prime parking to those citizens who were willing to spend a lot of extra money for a low-range, underpowered, unsexy vehicle. Those charger-augmented spots were often empty, simply because there weren’t enough PEVs on the road to fill them.

If you’ve achieved your dream job, only to find it’s not as great as you thought, you’re not alone. You probably like the idea of it more than the job itself, Georgina Kenyon finds. As a child, I always loved animals. It’s something that didn't change as I grew older. So when the opportunity to take a break from journalism and volunteer at an animal sanctuary in Tasmania for three months arose, I jumped at it. I was certain it would be my dream job. But the reality of the work was quite different to what I had imagined. Instead of spending time each day getting to understand the animals and learn about them, I spent eight-hour days running between duties in the icy, winter rain, doing manual, sometimes heartbreaking, work. Many of the animals, such as Tasmanian devils and quolls, had been hit by cars and needed rehabilitation. I fed them, cared for them, avoided getting bitten — especially at meal times — and cleaned up after them. And, when they didn't survive, we buried them and felt their loss.

Saved by uncleflo on November 28th, 2016.

Two Muslim families hold the keys to the doors of Jerusalem's holiest church in order to keep the peace between three feuding Christian denominations. On a recent Sunday morning, Adeeb Jawad Joudeh Al Husseini was sitting on a bench just inside the sole public entrance to Jerusalem’s Church of the Holy Sepulchre. The doorway to the sprawling church, founded in the 4th Century, is where the 53-year-old Muslim has spent much of his life. His father, grandfather and dozens of generations of forefathers before them also dedicated most of their lives to sitting on this bench, guarding the church believed to contain the tomb of Jesus, Al Husseini said, pulling a 20cm-long iron key out of his leather jacket’s inner pocket.
