This video of the Soto 40 racing in the 2011 Chicago-Mackinac Race is unlike any race video you have ever seen. The pictures aren't anything special, but the narration manages to nicely skewer all the things about sailboat racing that must seem ridiculous to non-racers. Pretty funny.
So if you've had your fill of race videos that are overly serious, and aim for a cool, professional, Right Stuff sort of delivery (i.e. BORING)…(cont.)
, then this is just the sort of change-up that you need.
Who knows, maybe it will inspire a new genre of sailing videos in which sailors don;t take themselves quite so seriously.
