In the grand scheme of things, is a couple of hundred quid for footage of potentially some very challenging seas and scenery not worth it? You could always sell it afterwards as they sell v easily, the 20- 30% depreciation would have only cost you a minimal amount!

If you were kitting out a deck of a boat with a few jockey style suspension seats and a good size console then the price is very similar depending on specification of shocks and extras.

Hi ,
That was also my approach !
For me the RI is a unique trip which I will do the first time and may be even the last time ! I am very interested to make after the trip a nice video with the highlights of the journey !
Looking at the total amount of money I invested so far in the boat and other gear , the cost for traveling from Berlin to Milford Haven and back plus fuel , accommodation etc on the trip itself - the investment for the Gopro is quite little .
I can attach my Gopro to the grab rail at the console or on the A frame .
I just have still to learn how to use the camera

Jurgen - I am on a GoPro crash course as well. I bought the remote as I figured I would try placing it in different positions on the boat, and at least have the chance to switch it on and off without having to leave the helm.
The battery probably wont last more than 4 hours, the memory card certainly would be full after that amount of time, so the remote should let me grab highlights (as long as I dont lose it!)

I got the remote as well but first of all as you said the battery life is extremely low and secondly you need a magnifier to change settings cause of this very little display .
I do have a water resistant smartphone (CAT B10) which is not much usefull as a phone - but with the GoPro app a fantastic remote control and battery works all day !
For the camera I have a set of spare batteries .

Just got a note from HMS, that he is trying to put together a Fuel Tanker deal, that would involve a tanker meeting us at each overnight stop.
Good news - as it means I can get rid of the additional fuel tanks for ferrying fuel, and we should be able to agree a fuel price per litre in advance for the whole trip.

... Flotilla will be burning 1000 litres an hour at sea. Our requirements have grown hugely as more teams have come onboard so running to and fro from garages with cans is not really viable or safe in my view. A proper solution needs to be secured. Almost have a plan in hand ready to present now, so very shortly hope to put all teams in the picture ref the fuel. Best wishes, HMS. PBR

With no disrespect to this idea, have you gentlemen ever tried pulling alongside a tanker at sea, unless conditions are lillypond calm it can be very hazardous, think of pulling alongside a sheer cliff face and you'll get the idea, most Ship to smaller vessel transfers at sea are usually performed under passage, anything from 5 to 10knts whatever the Ships Captain feels appropriate. He would of course provide you with a lee, but even this can be challenging with small lightweight craft.
I'm not saying it can't be done, and really not looking to throw spanners, I hope it will be a fantastic experience for you all, and wish you the very best for your voyage.

PS, If anyone would like some high res pics or vids whilst departing or returning to the Port of Milford Haven, then please contact and we can arrange a meeting place.
Regards
Paul.
