Simon turns Xylonite red in the Pin Mill Match

Simon North has made another superb barging film, this time of the 2013 Xylonite in Blackwater Match 2013 (Dave Brooks)Pin Mill Sailing Barge Match.

He was aboard Tim Kent’s Xylonite and has concentrated on the crew and their actions.   Shot at times in sepia, and at times in a very fetching red, Simon has truly captured the magic of the sailing barge.   There’s interesting background music, and some funky timing.

Congratulations Simon  –  another great film!
