Sailing Race: The 2015 Carey Olsen Inter-island Challenge (Jersey to Guernsey) last Saturday.

Footage a bit bumpy and I could have flown better but was focused so much on battery power as my batteries get to 30% then take 10 seconds to drop-off to 8% and then straight into auto-landing; not ideal over the sea. I did this video for some sailing mates so it might be long and boring to watch if you're not mad about yachts, so fast-forward to the hurried landing back at the RIB (6min 19sec) when the drone was about to auto-land some way off the boat and I had to quickly fly back and dump it into my catcher's hands.

Allways when you fly over water it´s a little bit risky and make you feel inconvenience.
