Fenn Cup Ocean Ski race 1 - Video

Tuesday, September 29, 2009 / Posted by Rambo / comments (0)

I had so much fun shooting this, Guy Leech was the perfect gentlemen allowing me full access to mount a GoPro Cam on his ski and granting an interview later. Leechy had an encounter with the "bommie" at Long Reef (see the video) and made for great viewing and discussion after the race.

A very close finish with Jeremy cotter just pipping Tim Jacobs on the run up too the line with Shannon Eckstein 3rd and in the womans race Hayley Bateup proved too strong for Former Molokai Champ Jasmin Kelly with 2 time Olympian Yander Nossiter 3rd.

Clint Robinson on Ocean Racing - The Future

Monday, September 14, 2009 / Posted by Rambo / comments (0)

I spoke to Clint Robinson last weekend and this is what he had to say about the future of Ocean Racing, it appears things are moving in this direction already with the Fenn Cup Downwind Series and the Bing Lee/LG Ocean Series kicking off in a few weeks time as well as numerous races running around the world this coming year. He had some other interesting things to say about the Molokai race and views on other things as well, but this clip is primarily to do with the Future of Ocean Racing.

Clint's time is committed to junior SLSA six days a week for now, but said he's still keen on getting back on the water competitively soon.
