Re: Dorade transatlantic race 1931

Obviously, that was the first use of a wind-up GoPro in offshore racing.

Seriously, that appears to be the first of five episodes. I only met Olin as an older man so it was a kick to see him in his twenties. Its also a kick to see what racing was like back then with a dinghy lashed to the deck and a telephone pole sized spinnaker pole.

Thank you for posting that.....

Jeff

Yes, the lack of drone footage put me off, but I thought I'd post it anyway. They also don't seem to be into lifelines, proper boating clothing, or life jackets. I haven't watched all the episodes, but there doesn't seem to be any closeup face shots of them fretting about what they'll do if their electronics poop out.
