Drones used to film dinghy sailing

Teamracing Drone footageI have been waiting to see some good footage of dinghy sailing using drones. This is the first I have seen of team racing and clearly shows the closeness and boat handling skills required.

I think this has the potential to really change the way we portray the sport of sailing to the general public. Tracking is great for sailors but doesn’t fully explain it to non-sailors.

I have seen promo stuff, and boats going fast etc. but have not seen just general racing. I think team racing sue to it’s short courses and tight racing will look really good in this format. Has anyone else seen some decent footage of racing dinghies yet… if so share below.
