    CaptainRick Log-2 - New Adventures Beginning! in British Virgin Islands, CARIBBEAN
    (Rick Moore)

    Published on Aug 5, 2015
    Welcome to the start of new sailing adventures with 'Sophisticated Lady'! As we wrap up our season and depart from Virgin Gorda Yacht Harbor in the British Virgin Islands, it's been a long time coming and lots of work preparing the boat, but now we are ready to start our voyage to the South Caribbean! We'll have stops along the way at some or all of St Martin, St Kitts, Guadeloupe, Les Saintes, Dominica, St Lucia, St Vincent, Grenadines, and Grenada! After that if all stays good and on track you'll be joining us for some new adventures as we hop our way through the ABC Islands north of South America, and on to Colombia and then Panama and Costa Rica in South America!

    Thanks for all your past support this last season in staying in touch and enjoying the videos, but rest assured, there is much more on the way, and all we need you to help with is keep watching, liking, commenting, and especially sharing of the videos so we can keep traveling and bringing you more of what you want to see... so be sure and leave your comments and let us know what that is! :)

    Thanks again, and don't forget to SHARE anything you like! :)

    Yes, my first Fashion/Lifestyle Video for a client here in St Maarten, SXM, CARIBBEAN!
    Rick Moore



    Published on Jan 30, 2016
    So yes, this is my first attempt at a fashion and lifestyle video for a client here in St Maarten that custom ordered something specific to their needs/desires, and gave me creative control over scenes, sets, production, etc... they just requested the tone, feel, music style etc and I filled in the blanks... still thought some of you might find it interesting to see some of the 'other' side of what I do, so be kind, but feel free to offer your opinion! :)

    Let's go to the BEACH! Nice scene of Mullet Beach, St Maarten, SXM, CARRIBEAN!
    Rick Moore



    Published on Feb 11, 2016
    I some of you always enjoyed my Ambient scenes, nice laid back, relaxing views of a beautiful place with accompanying natural sounds... well it's been quite a while since I last posted one, so this one is for you!

    Mullet Bay is one of my favorite places on St Maarten... this is where I take my morning bike ride to go for an early swim before any crowds show up.. so this time I brought my camera gear with me! The video is filmed in 4K UltraHD, and I also brought my best microphone to capture the sounds... so be sure and crank up your playback resolution as high as you can, and play it on good speakers or headphones for maximum effect!

    These scenes were something I started posting to give friends and family back home a well needed break from any particular stress, so simply spend a few minutes and unwind and enjoy the view! Watching and listening to waves is one of the most relaxing things anyone could do, so I hope you enjoy these few minutes I'm sharing with you... and yes I put 90 seconds of meditative music near the start, then faded back to the natural sounds, so be sure and leave a comment as to which you prefer and why, and what other scenes you might like to see featured.

    As always, thanks for watching, and I look forward to your comments!

    Cheers,
    Rick

    Steve Job's Yacht "VENUS" ~ FULL 360 Aerial View ~ Simpson Bay Bridge, St Maarten, SXM
    Rick Moore



    Published on Feb 13, 2016
    Love it or Hate it... Here is Steve Jobs Yacht "VENUS" as she comes through the Simpson Bay Bridge in St Maarten, SXM, CARIBBEAN... Filmed with my DJI Inspire Drone to capture a full 360* rotation of Yacht "VENUS".

    Steve Jobs had his own idea in mind when he designed his yacht "VENUS", and everyone who sees her almost always has an instant reaction of total love, or full on hate... all you can say about the design, is it is the first of its kind, and "VENUS" is definitely unique!

    Unfortunately for Steve Jobs, he passed away before ever getting to see his final masterpiece completed, so never actually got to sail on "VENUS". "VENUS" now lives on in his memory, and serves as a vacation platform for his wife and family.

    I hope you enjoy the video, and please feel free to share it if you like!

    Cheers,, and thanks for watching!

    Sailing with "SOPHISTICATED LADY" ~ Countdown to NEW ADVENTURES!
    Rick Moore



    Published on Apr 25, 2016
    Yes it's been a while that we've been off the map, but with good reason.. it was time to restructure some things and put together a new team that was up to the task of bringing some of my ideas to life... I'm happy to report that after many months of researching and contacting potential crew, I have assembled what I believe the ideal "SOPHISTICATED LADY" Dream Team!

    What do you suppose will happen when you put one sailboat together with 5 Crew within which we have one Captain, two Pirates, three professional Videographers, two professional Dive Instructors, one Crazy Russian, 7 Drones and 22 Cameras..? Well I guess you will just have to stick around to find out, but I'm sure it will amount to a LOT OF COOL SHIT! :)

    This video is just a teaser of some of our recent footage, but soon we will put out a new crew intro video to get the ball rolling and start our new adventures... So STAY TUNED!

    Sad News...
    Rick Moore



    Published on May 17, 2016
    Today's news is not good news unfortunately... this video is final tribute to my little buddy "LUCKY" the Pirate Parrot. Sadly, "LUCKY" passed a few months ago, which is largely the reason I've remained very quiet lately.. you can only imagine the change in energy onboard "Sophisticated Lady' with "LUCKY" gone. She was my constant companion while living aboard the past 15 years and she will be missed immensely.

    I hope you will join in giving her a proper send off, the least we can do for such a beautiful creature that touched and entertained so many. Feel free to leave a comment, and I'm sure "LUCKY" is listening and appreciates it.

    If you'd like to view other "LUCKY" memories, find her in her playlist at:
    https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list...

    Thanks all for your continued support, see you all again soon in a happier moment.

    Cheers,
    Captain Rick

    A great day was had by all! Funded and organized by IGY Marinas, and put together with volunteers from the sailing/yachting community in St Maarten, Caribbean, the I-Can Foundation day was a huge success with over 40 participants on hand to help with refurbishing and restoration of the I-Can Orphanage... thanks to all that helped make this day possible, and a day never to forget for the kids that live there and know that they matter!

    Sailing "SOPHISTICATED LADY" ~ Episode 2 ~ DEPORTED!
    Rick Moore



    Published on Jun 14, 2016
    Episode 2 of Sailing with "SOPHISTICATED LADY" ~ DEPORTED!

    Join us on our rescue mission as we attempt to retrieve Shascha, our new crew member that was arriving from Russia and deported by St Maarten immigration.

    In a nutshell, Shascha had all the necessary documentation and Visa with her passport on arrival to St Maarten, but Immigration had implemented a brand new rule outlining that anyone arriving as 'crew' was now considered to be a working employee and required to have an import permit issued before their arrival on the island... only problem is nobody knew and they never told anyone until they actually arrived... NICE!

    Oh well, sometimes through hardships and the actions of over-zealous officials that take their jobs WAY too seriously, new adventures are born... so join us on our mission and attempt to rescue Shascha!

    Published on Jun 25, 2016
    Meet my friend Rodger Boutelle, long time resident of St Maarten and St Barth's, and ex-pat who gave it all up in the States to come for a simpler life in the islands! Rodger shares stories of his years spent working with Jimmy Buffet, which I'm sure all you Parrotheads will enjoy... and was also the one to set up the first actual dive shops on the island of St Martin!

    This is part of my "Meet a Friend" series where you will meet a local or an ex-pat with interesting stories of life in the islands, and also how or why they left when it was time to change things up a bit in their lives... Hope you enjoy!

    SECRETS REVEALED ~ One of My TOP 3 Favourite Islands in the CARIBBEAN! ~ aerials by DJI Inspire
    Rick Moore



    Published on Aug 26, 2016
    Welcome to one of my Top 3 Favorite Islands in the Caribbean... Bequia in the Grenadines!

    Located 10 miles South of St Vincent, it represents the first island in the Grenadines chain heading South towards Grenada which is a mere 50 miles away, and about 150 miles from South America.

    Bequia is by far one of the most friendly islands you are ever going to visit, always lush green, beautiful sand beaches, lovely locals, and fresh fruit and veggie stands at the local markets every day!

    Join as I give you an aerial introduction to one of my all-time favorites, and not to worry, there will be more detailed videos coming in future so stay tuned!

    Cheers,
    Captain Rick

    Sailing 'Sophisticated Lady' ~ Ever DREAM OF BEING ALONE on a DESERTED ISLAND in the Caribbean?
    Rick Moore



    Published on Sep 2, 2016
    A deserted island in the Caribbean..? YOU BET! As you remember from last episode, Shascha and I were enjoying some down time in Bequia for a couple/few weeks (ok I was working a lot too, I know) :)

    Now it was time for a little side trip to shake things up and swap out the backyard for a new view for a couple days, so off we went to Petit Nevis, a small deserted island a few miles off the South shore of Bequia, with nothing but an old abandoned whaling station on it, and a signature row of palm trees on a beautiful coral beach... sound too good to be true..? Think again, it's REAL, and in this episode we take you for a little tour of the island we spent a couple days just enjoying by ourselves... how cool is that, right? Watch and you'll see!

    As always, thanks for your appreciation of my videos, thanks for your comments, shares, and likes... and thanks most of all just for being there and asking for more... look forward to sharing upcoming episodes with you, so stay tuned! :)

    Cheers,
    Captain Rick

    Sailing 'SOPHISTICATED LADY' ~ We LOVE You Sandy Island! ~ Part 2 of Anguilla, CARIBBEAN

    Part 2 of our Anguilla trip takes us to a small out-island of Anguilla called Sandy Island.. with nothing more than some palm trees and a small bar, it is a great place to hang out and let your hair down for an afternoon.. beautiful white sand beach all around, sparkling clear turquoise water dancing over a full barrier reef... just someplace else to put on your bucket list! :)

    After a stop back at the boat for lunch, we pile in the dinghy again and off to Elvis's Beach Bar in Road Bay on Anguilla for Happy Hour! And what a Happy Hour it was... Elvis broke out his special "Mama Juana" home made rum... it went down hill from there! Lol

    Cheers,
    Captain, Rick

    If you haven't seen the full episode of Road Bay and Sandy Island in Anguilla, you can find it at the following link:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oIz9H...

    This video is the aerial tour we shot with our Inspire Drone at sunset in Road Bay, Anguilla... a beautiful area and little town, featuring some of our newest favorite beach bars to hang out at during our downtime! :)

    Hope you enjoy the tour, and this one was done without any narration, just soft background music so you can sit back and relax and take in all the sights... Let me know how you like it or if you'd prefer it with narration in background instead!

    As always, thanks for watching, you know I appreciate it, please share the video if you like it and don't forget to leave me a comment below!

    Cheers,
    Captain Rick

    Sailing 'Sophisticated Lady' ~ T-MINUS-7 and COUNTING!
    Rick Moore



    Published on Sep 16, 2016
    Hope you'll forgive that some of the audio in this one isn't perfect, but we were using my iPhone 6S+ as camera for this one as a test... video wasn't bad, but audio definitely isn't going to cut it without a better microphone, Lol. Hope you enjoy the video though, and look forward to hear from you! :)

    Cheers,
    Captain Rick

    Sailing with "Sophisticated Lady' ~ REAL-TIME HURRICANE AVOIDANCE ~ Part 1
    Rick Moore



    Published on Sep 24, 2016
    Yes, we are in hurricane avoidance mode... not fun! A tropical wave has left the coast of Africa this week that is headed straight for the Southern Caribbean... very unusual as they usually track a slightly Northern component as they head this way, but this one is gaining momentum in our direction and packing forecast winds of over 60knots even at 4 days out!

    Today we depart St Vincent after stocking up water and fuel on 'Sophisticated Lady', and head for Bequia where we will stock up food and provisions before heading South to next islands in the Grenadines on route to Grenada. We will stop overnight along the way to update forecast and pick up anything else we need along the way, and do our best to update you as we track the developing front and try to keep out of its way!

    Cheers,
    Captain Rick
