GoPro Sailing Specialists announced as Official Supplier

UK GoPro Sailing Specialists, SailSpy.com has been chosen as the Official GoPro Supplier for the next two editions of the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race.

Some of the most engaging and explosive footage captured on board the twelve Clipper 70 yachts competing in the world’s longest ocean race, will be recorded on the GoPro Hero3 Black Edition, which will be provided by SailSpy for the next two editions of the Clipper Race.

Paul Hankey, Digital Media Manager at the Clipper Race, said, “The conditions the crew will face during the Clipper Race will be the ideal environment for a GoPro camera.

“The cameras have the ability to not only withstand the harsh surroundings but capture high quality footage which we will show around the world.”

The Isle of Wight based company has provided each team with two brand new GoPro Hero3 Black Edition cameras along with a kit of accessories to allow the crew to record the 40,000-mile, 11-month adventure.

Dave Wright, owner of SailSpy.com said, “Partnering with the Clipper Race as the Official Supplier of GoPro cameras and accessories provides the perfect connection to give everyone an insight to ocean racing. Sailing is where it's at for this most versatile camera.

“This partnership will allow the crew to capture the action throughout the race as well as offering them an exclusive camera bundle.”

GoPro cameras have been making waves in the extreme sports market for several years and for sailors the possibilities are endless. The GoPro® HDHero3 camera is smaller, lighter and better than its predecessors. It comes with a waterproof housing and a wide selection of mounts and accessories.
