Capturing the joy of sailing


Some young sailors and instructors at the Harraseeket Yacht Club, in South Freeport, Maine, put a high-definition GoPro point-of-view camera to good use this summer.

Donated by a club member, the rugged, waterproof GoPro camera can be worn by a user or mounted.

As the sailing season wound down, the instructors put together a music video of clips and photographs taken this summer. Club commodore Finn Hadlock sent the video our way.

“I could not resist. This video just made me smile,” Hadlock said. “It just makes you smile and realize why kids love boats so much.”
