The boats are flying as they hit peak downwind sailing conditions in the South Pacific…the Volvo Ocean Race at its most electrifying!

  1. Part II
    I haven’t spend so much time with Livestream (apart from the leg starts), but it don’t sound like an reel option.
    My final question. Do the editor of the clips have real sailing experience (and understanding)? The only long clips that currently is interesting but very low information shots (image vise) of the crew interviews. Good enoth so but please let the shots of sailing be as long. Especially under tough conditions!!!!

  2. Thank you for your answer. I'm a keen sailor myself and follow the VOR with great interest. I think its great that you have an Youtube channel and publish edited material. But why the rush? Why not show the boats hit five consecutive waves, especially before the big wave etcetera. That will make it possible to interpret the conditions and see the technique used by the helmsman to master the situration.

  3. That's what I'm talking about! This is what we think of when we think of VOR! Awesome footage.
    Excellent shallow DOF at 0:56, nice wave at 1:12; massive wake at 1:56, plus lots more!

    And to answer the (rhetorical) question at the end of the narration–we already know how much these boats can take–in a lot of cases so far, not that much at all.
