Incredible offshore sailing video from the Volvo Ocean Race
There is no doubt that the introduction of drones for onboard reporters in the last edition of the Volvo Ocean Race changed the viewing dynamic of the race forever. Suddenly you could follow the crews beyond the marina and spectator boats right out into the middle of the ocean.
Drones enabled us to capture never-before-seen aerial footage that moved audiences from spectators to feeling like members of the crew. To anyone who has ever flown a drone, we think you can appreciate the skill of flying from a boat on a heel like this, going that fast with that much water coming over the deck, onboard reporters we take our hat off to you.
Here we watch some of their most epic moments in what is, without doubt, one of the most impressive Sailing Videos we’ve ever come across on YouTube.
VIDEO Impressive video of Vendee Globe Boats sailing around the Kerguelen Islands
With the incredible support of the French Navy and French television TF1, a team of two people spent forty days onboard a frigate helicopter carrier in order to shoot Vendee Globe boats rounding the Kerguelen Islands. Here we see this rare and epic sailing footage.
VIDEO Video of Alex Thompson performing the most amazing skywalk
This video combines two of our favourite water sports - sailing and kitesurfing.
What if you kite surfed behind the Hugo Boss Vendee Globe boat, attached yourself to a wire and hoisted yourself up to twice the height of your mast before ripping the cord and floating back down on your kite?
We think even the most adrenaline-fuelled individuals would take their hats off to this particular stunt…
VIDEO This video of a couple living on a self-sufficient sailboat for 10 years
Follow this extraordinary couple who have been living aboard their boat for ten years, sailing 83,000 nautical miles. Using wind and solar panels this couple, and their baby, can be off-grid for months at a time.
Some people may also know them as SV Delos. The couple knew nothing about sailing before going on to live on their boat full time.
Take the full video tour of the boat that lets them live a sustainable life on the sea or, if planning your own trip, check out our
essential boat packing list. VIDEO This footage of a drunk sailor being pulled off a reef in the Caribbean!
A list of sailing videos wouldn’t be complete without at least one boat fail video and this one is a good reminder to ensure you
have the right safety equipment on board!
After a night sail back to Grenada in the
Caribbean, Sailing SV Delos find a drunk sailor who’s run his sailboat up on a reef with all his sails out and engine on motoring even further onto the reef! Sounds too crazy to be true? Take a look at this… VIDEO Watch the guys from BoatUS cover the five outboard maintenance jobs most people forget
We’ve covered important considerations for
maintaining your boat before. In this video, Yamaha technician Sean Stahl of Annapolis Boat Sales explains to BoatUS Magazine's Lenny Rudow five outboard maintenance jobs that people forget about.
These include replacing the fuel-water separator filter, checking the timing belt for wear, checking engine and bracket zincs, checking trim tab zincs, and removing the prop to look for a fishing line behind the thrust washer.
VIDEO Awesome Video of Sailing a Superboat Crossing the Atlantic in Record Time
To quote “A Great Big Story,” - “Even the most daunting world records are meant to be broken.”
And it was no easy feat. On July 22, 2016, Comanche—a custom-built, 100-foot racing yacht—set sail from New York to the southern tip of England. Precisely five days, 14 hours, 21 minutes and 25 seconds later, the Comanche’s crew shattered the world record, by more than a day.
This video has it all;
excellent helming, speed, resilience, teamwork, and the bravery to sail through bad weather.
Brave the high seas as we set sail on one of the most amazing and inspiring journeys ever to take place on film.”

importance of proper preparation. In this video Bonita goes up the mast for the first time to take measurements for a new headsail, Yosh gets handy with some fiberglass work and the crew gets creative in the sail loft. VIDEO
