sailboat ballet [video]

this is a pretty sweet video of a high school regatta at Community Boating in Boston.

A single photograph was captured every three seconds during the regatta. In the video the frames are played back at a rate of 24 per second. The result is that two hours of sailing can be seen just over a minute and half, which means that time seemingly has been sped up by a factor of 72.

I visited a community sailing center in Traverse City this summer (TACS) and was very impressed with the facility and organization.  community sailing seems like such a win-win system for a community on/near the water, especially with all of the free or low-cost programs that they offer to teach younger children to learn to sail.
