    Hervey Bay A Class Worlds

    Humpybash regatta at Redcliffe, Brisbane is being held in a fortnight on 20 & 21 October with three races on the Saturday and a marathon on the Sunday. Humpybash is again expected to attract a keen fleet of A class sailors in the 80+ mono and catamaran competitors as the countdown continues to the Australian A Nationals from Nov 11 to 15 and the Worlds from 16 to 23rd at Hervey Bay. Humpybong Yacht Club runs separate racing for junior and senior competitors .

    Aus lifts minimum wage to $18 an hour

    What will it take for the US minimum wage to go to $18 an hour so all workers benefit not just the doormen in vegas, or coney island waitress' earning good tips? Or do you still believe trickle down works?

    best pro video camera for sailing events

    I use the everio and the 60D as reasonably cheap to replace if i drop them over the side or they get soaked. They are wrapped in wet weather gear when I get pics in a RIB, and I've often had green water over the bow with the mongrel wind against tide chop on Moreton Bay. I want to step up to the next grade and get a 4k 2nd hand semi pro video camera with a decent telephoto so i can get really good HD action especially for the A class Aussie Nationals and the Worlds at Hervey Bay later this year.
  12. I use a canon 60D and a jvc everio HDD cam for passable sailing regatta images and vids, but would like to know what professional standard second hand cameras i should be looking at to upgrade to? Want a decent telephoto lense to get action vision without the competitors disappearing into the distance as you unfortunately get with wide angle Gopro camera vids.
