I doubt many of you have ever seen this, but I think this is an awesome car commercial that "blends in" our sport. How many of you have ever wished you could do this?

(Please right-click and save to your local hard-drive rather than try and stream the video. It's also a Quicktime .mov file so you'll need Quicktime player in order to view it.)

BMW from out on the wire!

Nice! Like the tunnel at the end. Seem to recall some hiking out in The Love Bug...

Looked like nice wind today in Charlotte-

How was the lake? I am stuck on-call. <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif" alt="" />

Wind on the lake was GREAT today! Constant and steady 15-20 winds all day which is rare for Lk Norman. A PERFECT day for sailing and all I could do is look at it from the window.

Too busy making funeral arrangements and flight arrangements for my wife's 94-yr-old grandmother who just passed away. I really REALLY wish I could have been out there today!

Sorry to here that- condolences.

If you need crew on a windy day, let me know.

I wonder how many non-sailing people get the point and references to sailing from that add. I love it, but I bet many do not understand it at all.

I bet if Rick has a copyright on his design that's been used for the Tradewinds t-shirt he could have a nice BMW sponsorship coming his way!

You dont need a "copyright". if you are the of any creative... you are entitled to compensation for any art used by a 3rd party…. If no prior agreement was made... you can request / demand fair compensation.... (as Vanilla Ice learned when he was sued by the band Queen and David Bowie's label)
