A few videos...

We have been archiving a lot of our footage from the past 11 years and there sure are a lot of memories in there.
Recently our friends at CNN Mainsail put a huge amount of effort into cramming our project into a 23 minute program.
We think that considering the time restraints, they did a really good job. They worked very hard to get all the details right.
There are some real behind-the-scenes heroes in our project such as Chris Hornzee Jones and his team at Aerotrope. Chris designed our first wing and was primary designer of VSR2. It was a shame we couldn't squeeze them in there somewhere to give him this credit.
Many of you will have seen it but for those who haven't, here is the link.
Here is another video that I know you will enjoy. It's the full length video of our 65 knot run as seen from the RC plane that chased us. Bernt did such a good job with this that we think it's worth sharing in its entirety. There is a more in depth explanation of the run from this perspective beneath the video itself. Here's the link...
Right now we are playing around with some ideas and getting ready to start building some scale models to test them. Helena and I are heading over to America tomorrow to go and see some Land yachting and then heading for San Francisco to see what everyone's up to over there. There seems to be a lot going on so now is as good a time as any to check it out.
Hopefully this crappy spell of weather will have broken by the time we get back.
