Sailing a wooden yacht on Sydney Harbour (video)

Sailing a wooden yacht on Sydney Harbour from New York Video Service on Vimeo.
http://www.PeterBucknell.com - There's a class "wooden boat" in the weekend regattas that handicaps boats to even them out a bit. This yacht is a particularly old one, and beautiful to sail. When the wind is strong as it was on this particular day, the wood creaks and beams bend. Exciting stuff and good fun to be a part of the old-timers crew
Filmed in 720p 60fps on a Kodak playsport (waterproof to 10ft)
