Videos: Round The Island Race On-Board Cam

August 16, 2011

[Updated] During this past weekend’s Round the Island powerboat race, David Selley and Andrew Osborne’s D33 was equipped with cameras, and the videos below show a look at the top speed spin around the island from the view of a powerboat racer. The videos were filmed from a camera placed on top of Mr Osborne’s helmet, as pictured below.

David Selley and Andrew Osborne finished in a time of 49:46, with the onboard cameras catching the action of them flying through the waters around the island.

Bernews would like to thank James Anfossi, David Selley and Andrew Osborne for the footage. You can switch to 720 or 1080 for a higher quality view. If you specifically want to see the ‘speeding’ footage once the race is underway, jump directly to video #2.

    Awesome footage! I can really appreciate how fast you guys go. You got massive b@lls, especially going over those reefs!

    Great posts. Never done the around the Island like that. Been around lots of times making it an all day affair in a 30 plus foot boat running much closer to shore.

    Very pretty ride. I’ll stick to less than 10kts thankyou.

    Great job on the video tech side of things.

    Absolutely, positively stunning. Magnificent driving David. Well done for posting this and kudos
    to all who participated on Sunday cause the ‘Round the Island” is still the most mind blowing
    example of sports excellence Bermuda has to offer. Nothing else even comes close. One can
    only imagine how far 11 million would have carried these consummate mariners.
    Again, many thanks.
