Welcome to Wyntersea Productions Inc
Wyntersea Productions Inc, a multi-media company, initially came into being due to a combination of our passions for adventure, sailing and photography.
In 2004 the challenge of sailing the Pacific Ocean unveiled our fever for blue water cruising. In 2006 way-points we set to sail southward and we were drawn beyond the protected waters of the inside passage of Vancouver Island and Canada’s mainland.
Thus it was, the beginnings of our quest to visit remote tropical islands
and on to what was to become the adventure of a lifetime.
In April 2007 we were probably as surprised as our friends when we made a sharp right hand turn, from Manzanillo, Mexico, and sailed into the vast South Pacific. After twenty five days at sea the unmistakable scent of frangipani flowers filled the air, tropical rain washed the sea salt from the deck of Wyntersea and we sighted land for the first time in as many days; Hiva Oa, Marquesas Islands, French Polynesia. Following this we would visit many other islands in French Polynesia, Cook Islands, Niue, Fiji, Tonga, New Zealand, Vanuatu, New Caledonia and Australia before stopping sailing.
Our adventure lasted a full five years while living full-time aboard SV: Wyntersea and collecting stamps in our passports from each tropical island paradise. There is a peacefulness about living aboard a sailboat, where the only sound is the lapping of the sea as it washes against the hull, the wind as it sings in the rigging and wide open ocean as far as one can see; knowing that yet another beautiful island is just over the horizon.
During this expedition we have captured many hours of video, which have been edited into a library of DVDs and are now available to be shared with the world. Our quest for a challenge has not ended now that we are land-locked. The only major difference is that our mode of transportation has changed. We now travel in the convenience of plane, train and car with much more time to dedicate to the production of our projects.
Watch for the completed documentaries and other productions as they unfold and check our calendar of events for a quick peek at our new or upcoming projects.
A word to our friends who are still at sea “keep the wind at your back”,
to our friends ashore “keep the sunshine on your face”,
and to all of our visitors “life is short, live the dream”.
