VIDEO: Joys of boating seen in sailing championships

We all know the joys boating delivers, but sometimes a pleasant reminder is in order — in this case, young people having a blast sailing dinghies.

The 2014 O'pen BIC North American championships were held April 25-27 at the Royal Hamilton Amateur Dinghy Club on Bermuda.

O’Pen BIC youth regattas are known for their focus on fun, learning and sportsmanship.

This year’s championship drew 32 sailors from Hawaii, Miami, France, New York and New England who sailed 20 races and an epic freestyle expression session in ideal wind conditions ranging from 6 to 20 knots.

Results and photos can be found on the RHADC Facebook page, but check out this three-minute video montage of the event set to the hit song, “Happy.”
