SCUTTLEBUTT VIDEO OF THE WEEK
When the 29er and 49er classes went to Freeport, Grand Bahama in January for their World Championship, their high performance boats were a perfect fit for the waters of this island paradise. To insure that the event was recorded, the class brought in photographer Fried Elliott and videographer Chris Love to capture the action.
After chasing the fleet around on the water for a few days, this pair (actually, the Class) decided to rent a seaplane…and video tape the outing. It was from this aerial adventure that brought Fried’s shots to grace the recent covers of both Sailing World and Seahorse magazines. This week’s video follows these titans of imagery as they go aloft: video You can also catch this and other videos & photos on Channel 49er.
