These Guys Sailing 420’s In 25+ Knot Wind And Huge Waves Is Insane

When I was growing up we raced 420’s. Never like this….

We’ve been following young Ben Hartnett for a couple of years now, and this 18-year old university student from Southeast Oz is well on his way to becoming the next big talent in sailing video.  He shot this tasty big-wave video at Sandringham Yacht Club with three boats training under Victorian Institute of Sport Geoff Woolley.  He told us more about the shot: [via SailingAnarchy]

We were just in a rib and because the waves were so big we were completely soaked after 2 minutes of filming. About 5 minutes into the shoot my main camera (canon 7d) copped a full wave and well. That was the end of that camera’s life. But luckily I had the gopro to use for the rest of the time on the water.
