Tamanu video

This video was shot from the beach showing the sprit rig in light wind and the small sail in 25 knots of wind.
The best sailing videos are shot from a chase boat but unfortunately I didn't have one. Shooting from onboard with any conventional lens gives a narrow field of view and misses the best times because your hands are full when things really get going.
For these reasons I have just ordered a Go-Pro Hi definition waterproof head cam that can be mounted on the canoe. A 170 degree field of view should make a remarkable improvement. Stay tuned.

Now there's some motivation to get my Tamanu finished up over the winter! Nice video....
