Important announcement to competitors for 2017

HWR is once again going to be filmed & streamed live on the internet in 2017. HWR wishes to advise all athletes that a professional aerial drone camera operated by Gravity Filming will once again supplement the filmed images being taken by Unique Media TV.

Gravity Filming has once again been chosen to undertake this aspect of the HWR 2017 specifically because they are a recognized commercially licensed CAA approved organisation. Competitors are advised that this undertaking has been thoroughly planned and a Risk Assessment/Method Statement is available if required upon request of the Entries Secretary.

Competitors are also hereby advised that the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle camera (UAV or “drone”) will not be directly overflying competitors and will operate in accordance with Articles 166 & 167 of the Air Navigation Order. Competitors are advised to be aware that the UAV generates low levels of noise and that it will take off & land from a floating control point near the Quarter Mile point on the course. The UAV camera will not film every race & its use is weather dependent.

Thank you
