ZERO wind AutoKAP in Auyuituiq Park, Bafin Island

From one extreme to the other! After an athletic autokap session with 45 knots wind, here is a zero wind autoKAP in Coronation Fjord, in Auyuituiq Park, Bafin Island.


The only wind available in the Fjord was the relative wind equivalent to the speed of the ship ( 10 knots, ideal for the fled)


Fled - 0 wind - 10 knots speed - custom design AutoKAP rig by Brooks Leffler - Ricoh GX 100 with a wide angle converter.

    The high wind stuff was insane, this is insanely good. The ships wake is awesome and the reflected mountain and clouds trippy.

    A simply stunning series, Pierre. Hard to pick a favorite.
    Magnifique, bien sûr.

    You MUST submit one of these to the AKA Members's Choice competition, right away!

    This set is superb as well as the one with strong wind is scary. Have to get a Paul's kite myself to have fun (fun?) with it.

    Great work Pierre.
