This Masterclass was born out of a drone flying lesson that Alan Proto gave to Norman Johnston, owner of No Stress Yachting, in 2018. Norman suggested it might be fun to combine one of his boats with some of our drones. How could we say no. COVID got in the way a bit, but we completed hugely successful trips to sail with No Stress Yachting in September 2019, and September 2021. We plan to go back twice in 2022.
The most adventurous and experienced drone pilots. Flying a drone from the back of a yacht under full sail is exciting stuff. But we build up gradually, so you can take it at your own pace
What you won’t find anywhere else: Visiting hard-to-get-to cobalt blue water coves in a yacht, swimming to cool off, enjoying delicious seafood, oh yes, and flying drones!
