    My Royal Viking Sun story is now available on youtube

    After having been an overdue project of mine for a very long time, I'm now in the process of transferring all my private VHS tapes to my MAC, and then, as they are finishes loaded, they will be uploaded to my youtube channel.

    The first part of tape number one, a 10 minutes sequence from the North Sea, Faeroe Islands, Reykjavik (Iceland), Saint Anthony (Newfoundland), and Corner Brook (Newfoundland) has been uploaded to youtube.

    This is a 10 minute long sequence which I certainly hope some of you will enjoy watching.

    I do apologize for my most elementary video editing: remember these are 20 year old VHS video cassettes cut and edited together. Back then, we did not have computers and modern software.

    Sit back and enjoy your watching!

    With best regards from Jan-Olav Storli

      Thank you so very much for your kind comment and for taking time to watch my more than 20 year old home video.

      Yes, don't I look concentrated...?

      This was actually the very first time in my entire nautical career I was actually steering the ship: in the North Sea, and the first time in my life as a helmsman of a cruise ship.

      ... and the captain that you hear in the background is one of my role models, Captain Ola Stein Harsheim.

        Oh My!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! well you never forget your first time…but to be filmed doing it….
        (That’s steering the ship I’m talking about –just realised I hadn’t actually quoted the previous post!!!!!!!!!! )

        What a study in CONCENTRATION ….and then the realisation that the camera is whirring and out breaks that glorious smile like a sunrise!

        And Captain Harsheim….well. what can I say, except that this video is so very very precious. To say that the effort involved in transferring it to today’s media is appreciated would be total understatement. Of course I reacted with delight to those first few minutes, but I can see that there must be so many other personal stories throughout, perhaps people that you have kept in touch with through the years, or others only recently reconnected with through Facebook or whatever…
        Those 8:48 minutes must mean so very much to you.

        And then there’s the ship herself, and that’s even before I mention my personal pleasure at seeing the Faeroes which I was to visit for the first time aboard Fram so many years later on her maiden voyage.

          Thank you once again Lady C for taking time to view the clip and to also take time to comment on it.

          These videos are indeed like taken from a totally different life: not my life. I'm so glad I early on had an interest in creating video tapes and filming so much of my first years at sea.

          Here is another video, this time showing the rehearsal of Sun Jammers, the in-house deck crew band of Royal Viking Sun, and their performance in the Crew Show in Norway Lounge right afterwards.

          Those were some great years.
