Video – ‘Sailing at its best’ by the Finn class
Making the sport of sailing visually attractive has become one of the primary concerns of both classes and event organisers worldwide. This doesn’t just mean publishing great photos and spectacular footage, but also the way in which they are presented. A new video released this week by the International Finn Association hopes to demonstrate what is possible and is offered to showcase how appealing sailing can be, as much as it showcases the Finn.
The video was produced by X-Trame Studio of Budapest in conjunction with the Finn class, principally using footage taken at the 2010 Finn Gold Cup in San Francisco, but also using material from a wide range of other sources.
It will be officially released on DVD during the ISAF Annual Conference in Athens, Greece this week, but in advance of that the class has posted the video to its YouTube site, TheFinnChannel.

Before the end of the year the video will be available free of charge in broadcast quality on the Finn class’s FTP server. As well as being freely available to any TV or media outlet wishing to broadcast it, the video will also be available to any Finn sailor as a special and unique tool provided by the class to promote sailing and to help with campaign funding.
The 2 minute and 40 second video showcases the sport of sailing at its very best.
It speaks volumes. Enjoy
