50th Sabot National Championships
The Sabot is a sailing dinghy that is sailed and raced single-handedly usually by young sailors in various places around the world. The Sabot is a great class, because competitive boats can still be built from plywood by Dad in the shed! The class has fantastic spirit and caters to the complete range of young sailors all the way from those just starting out in the sport, up to the kids at the front of the fleet fighting for the lead.
Hartas Productions loves filming the Sabot class because we can get right up close to the competitors with the camera which gives viewers a great sense of excitement and you feel as if you are right there in the boat with them! In addition, filming events like these gives great satisfaction because the kids super excited about the videos at the event, and the parents are happy as well, but on top of that, in years to come, as these children grow up and sail bigger and faster boats, they will always have these videos to look back to to see how far they have come.
Held at Drummoyne Sailing Club in 2013 and 2014, the 50th Sabot National Championships had everything from light winds to strong tides, challenging the sailors whilst providing close racing and a great atmosphere.
Hartas Productions was on hand every day for filming and produced three videos so that the kids can relive this event in years to come!
