2018 Berlympics

2018 Berlympics

We have been talking at my club for a few years about mixing in team racing into our singlehanded fleet. We have come up with a theme and plan to do this at our club. I would encourage other people to try this out at their club.
Take a look at the attached picture of the event.

Re: 2018 Berlympics

So, our event was a huge success and everyone said they can't wait till we do this again. A good friend did drone videos of the racing and it can be viewed on his YouTube page at: https://www.youtube.com/user/tsollers

Re: 2018 Berlympics

Man that looked cool right up to the point where the drone pilot lost track of those still racing, or flying away from the windward mark right when everyone was getting there.
But, it shows such potential! I'm loving the fact that drones will be a big part of racing in the future.  The 2016 National youtube is nice as well.
I'm thinking I need to see how hard it is to think ahead stay focused and make a smooth video? If for some reason my sailing days are over?
