Cheap, robust and waterproof HD cameras (like the GoPro and Sanyo Xacti) combined with clever mounts like the Woods Power Grip Cleat and ever-simpler editing software is having a profound effect on sailing footage. Like the mothies, the iceaboaters are at the bleeding edge of all of it. And like us, they’re into cheap and fast. Take a look at this HD video of ice racing on some gorgeous ice on the resort lake of Winnipesaukee in New Hampshire shot last week, and when you’re done with it, check out this HD clip for more, or go here for some vintage silent footage from a Detroit Ice Yacht Club regatta – in 1943!
