Drone sailing videos are becoming a bit passé. They work better for bigger boats, small dinghies seem to get lost in the distance. Like most techniques, judicious use in mixing drone shots with other camera work seems to work the best. Here is a video of exclusive drone shots that works, because, hey, these are the Volvo Ocean Racing machines and, in most cases, they were being launched and retrieved from the Volvo boats. Nothing like getting some out-of-the-boat video in the Southern Ocean.
