I agree .That is one of my favorite movies, it has some really unbelivable images and if you love fast sailing the "Defi Nautic" in Douarnenez is just one of those places where you have to be at least once. Wonderful ambiance and thousands and thousands of lovers of fast sail having fun together. And there are a lot more seeing the show than actually sailing

Here you have another two Douarnenez videos, the first one on high resolution (you have to set it) and the other, unfortunately in low R, showing Open60's at speed.

Here is one video of a guy single handing and using a kit cam to film himself,
I would love to see my boat from those angle.

I've seen some of the kite cam videos. I really enjoy those. You guys probably also know Vega1860. He has some great videos of him and his wife crossing the Pacific.

That guy is a Pro!

It is just incredible how he manage to have it on the target and how the well do he uses the zoom?

This guy explains how it is done but is clearly an amateur is camera is shaking all the time.

Douarnenez

PCP, the Douarnenez definitely looks like a place I would enjoy. Incredible, thanks for posting those. I would so love to get a ride on one of those racing boats!

You will regret the things you did not do, more than the things you did.

Get out there!
