Volvo Ocean Race leg 3 start

This is just a little clip I shot on a point and shoot as we said goodbye to the Volvo Ocean Race fleet off the coast of Abu Dhabi at sunset on the eve of the Leg 3 106 nautical mile sprint to Sharjah in the UAE.
It was an awesome sunset over the Arabian Gulf.
Flew with Matt filming and our great pilot Mike from Falcon Aviation Services a great bunch of guys and they do tours around the city if you are ever in Abu Dhabi.

A day with the sharks

I have just come back from a very special day on the water with one of my long time fears. Understanding more about these amazing and endangered species is a must if you spend any time on the water. A special thanks goes out to the team at Marine Dynamics.Marine Dynamics is a world-recognized shark cage diving company located in Kleinbaai, Western Cape near Gansbaai. It is their mission to replace fact with fiction about sharks and they strive to display sharks as the are naturally- cool, calm, collected, and calculated. As the apex predator of the sea, sharks command our respect, NOT FEAR! If you are ever in South Africa hook up with these guys for an amazing experience on the water. http://www.sharkwatchsa.com''
