Footage of Heavy Air

Recommended Posts

I think it would be pretty cool to see more and longer video footage of the VOR boats in heavy air from just above and behind the driver position. I did not get the chance to see much but the Southern Ocean and North Atlantic legs had some amazing stuff from AKZO... along with the stuff out of the Med would be pretty cool to have on one long video.  I could watch that shit for hours!  Straight line would be cool but jibing in the breeze would be sweet to see too...

Thoughts?

There used to be a YouTube video of Bernard Stamm and crew on Poujoulat approaching the English coast with extreme main reefs and a storm jib, I think, filmed from a helicopter. But I can’t find it anymore.

OP dinghyboy is asking about a mashup of VOR footage, so I'd put in a plug for TBRU in Capetown racing a kiter in heavy air.

C'mon Dragon, you know it would fit! :D

Not certain, but I think you are thinking of the start of the last 5 oceans or if Northern Spain. Don't remember any footage, but Dan Towers took a stunning photo.

I read it as he just wanted some heavy air footage, not necessarily from VOR.

But oh well, here's a good one from TBRU, that's similar to what the OP wants then, probably not long enough though.
