The other thing is why do they have to have a team member fend off their boats to prevent them from running into the shoreline? Are these boats unable to maneuver well enough to avoid crashing into the shoreline?
If that is the case that would explain why I see no turn buoys. Any insights would be appreciated.

Thanks for sharing your video.
Boomer I think these may be free sailing boats. No rc !
