Sailing into the Seventies

Our Sea Song of the Week is one of the most requested boating songs of all time... probably
Rod Stewart Sailing in the 70s in NY

Each week we post a nautical tune to help start your weekend the right way, even if you can't get out on the boat.

This week for our Sea Song we wanted to acknowledge Rod Stewart, who turned 66 on Monday. When we googled him to confirm his age, we were surprised to learn that he just announced a tour with Stevie Nicks yesterday.

But let's get back to the 1970s and today's Sea Song of the Week.

We realize that we featured Sailing last year, but it was a live performance by Guns n Roses. This time, we've got THE man. It took some searching, but we finally found a good an okay version of the original video of Rod Stewart singing this song while actually sailing on a boat with NYC in the background.  Enjoy...

And just in case Rod Stewart is not pleased with the publicity of us posting this video, here is a link to his official website. Happy Birthday Rod.

  1. Thanks for the song this week. It was bittersweet to see the twin towers of the WTC in background. Let's hope we never forget those who sacrifice for our freedom.
