Thanks all of you.
I don't disagree about the ambient sound, but the wind noise was such it drowned everything else out altogether. And it doesn't even sound like wind, just a row. Sometimes I use 'fake' ambient sound, but nothing fitted.
The music was an easy choice, I'm old enough to remember The Onedin Line from the.... 70's I think, about a merchant sailing fleet back in the real days of sail. I had to cut about a minute of music that didn't fit, the join is where the camera looks down the right hand side, and it came to a convenient natural lull I could use as the finish. I made a rough edit, put the music on, and finished the edit to match the music.
I started with about 20 mins of film, and the sail only lasted an hour. My husband was saying things like 'for heavens sake put that camera down and just enjoy it'. But I can enjoy it and film as well, and I'm really glad I've got this as a memory. (So is he )
Most of my holiday stuff is more in the 'went there, saw this' category, it's difficult to find something that stands alone as well. I'll keep picking stuff out though, if nothing else, the scenery is usually good.
