A short documentary about BAADS (Bay Area Association of Disable Sailors) and the relationship with America's Cup. This video was presented on August 10, 2013 at the America's Cup Pavilion in San Francisco, CA USA.
After being involved in the San Francisco sailing community for several years I came across a most amazing club of sailors: the Bay Area Association of Disabled Sailors (BAADS). Each weekend this fearless group would come together for the love, comraderie and competition of sailing on the unpredictable San Francisco Bay. With the arrival of the four Americas Cup teams in 2013, BAADS soon became known to some of the finest sailors in the world. Several regattas and friendly races with BAADS and some AC racers soon took place, and I saw the makings of what I thought could be a damn good story. In mid-summer I had the fortunate opportunity to shoot and produce this documentary video, and on August 10, 2013 it was played as part of a stage presentation at America's Cup Park.
This video contains interviews with sailing legend Loick Peyron, BAADS founder David Izant, current Commodore Cristina Rubke and several others. Additional video footage and still photography shot from BAADS boats all across San Francisco Bay.
