Volvo Ocean Race: 24 Hour record falls

How to fly a drone in 30+ knot winds 
Go behind-the-scenes with OBR Sam Greenfield as he launches his DJI drone in brutal Atlantic Ocean conditions.
Bonus: Kyle catches drone ...while driving! (yes really)

Team AkzoNobel set a new record for the greatest distance sailed in 24 hours in the history of the Volvo Ocean Race today, eclipsing the previous mark and smashing past the 600-mile barrier (602.51 Nm, average boat speeds above 25 Knots) as they rocketed through the North Atlantic.
By the way, 6 of 7 teams beat the previous record on this current leg :
Dutch skipper Simeon Tienpont’s crew on their Volvo Open 65 bested the existing record for a yacht competing in the Volvo Ocean Race, the 596.6 miles set by Torben Grael’s Volvo Open 70 Ericsson 4 in the 2008-09 edition.
