Captions on videos

 We took the VIRB out for a fine summers evening on the Solent when the youngsters from the UK Youth Marine Training Academy went afloat under small-boat sail-power for the first time – they are usually honing their skills in motor boats and RIBs.

As ever the editing was quite intuitive but I seem to have got something wrong with my caption editing as it looked fine when I edited it and was different when it uploaded to YouTube.  I think I’ve got that sorted since.

I have also now found the volume control on VIRB edit – apologies, but you’ll have to mute the video when you watch it.  Having been used to the pleasant background of sloshing and crew chatter when the camera is mounted on a slower dinghy I was not expecting the wind noise on the bow sprit of a performance catamaran.



Of course I should have muted the volume on the camera when I set it up, to save having to edit the noise out.

The speedo really shows what happens when, in just a few knots of breeze, the catamaran lifts a hull.
