GoPro Camera + KAP + Sailing – Doesn’t always work

Launch Zone

The idea was to launch a GoPro camera on a KAP rig (or do some Kite Aerial Photography), and shoot some sailing photos from the air. The day started good with a nice constant seabreeze, unfortunately the breeze eased as the day went on and there wasn’t enough for the size of the kite I had. A few times the kite was lucky to stay above the water.  A good practice day with plans to take photos of the 16ft skiffs on a windy sunday soon.

The only photo with a boat in the picture, hopefully next time with more wind and getting the camera higher will yield more usable photos.

Packing up the kite and camera, this was the last photo before the camera got turned off.
