Another Quadcopter Sailing Video - English Winter Start

Quadcopter - Drone - whatever you want to call it - it's still cool to watch sailing videos taken from up high. A winter sailing series race start from Lymington Town Sailing Club with the typical melange of English sailing dinghies reaching out towards the Solent.

That really is a terrific way to video sailboat racing. I do hope it catches on. It is an excellent way to see what happens in a start and for coaches and sailors to learn from it afterwards.

I love that perspective. I am surprised by how stable the picture is. Beautiful.

I wouldn't be surprised to see this technology used to police the start lines at some major international regatta in the near future. Would make it tough to hide to leeward of a pack of over-early boats during a start.
