From the wipeout video and the Explanation of Tiebreakers video we can see that you shot some of the races from the judge boat, why not let us see them?
My plan was to shoot the final four or knockout round and post full videos, but we ran out of time and only had time for the tiebreakers (that were ultimately unnecessary.) The footage I shot from the umpire boats was only highlight footage, not full races. Part of that was a conscious choice--I wouldn't catch all the capsizes and carnage if I was just following one race at a time--and part of it was logistics: the local teams were each supposed to bring an umpire, but only a few did. As a result, the limited umpire staff was constantly running around trying to cover as many races as possible, hearing protests and acting as safety boats. When it's that windy, covering races in full from the water is very difficult, especially given these circumstances. I tried to capture the best stuff I could in a single day. And don't blame me that no one assaulted Coach Bresnahan this year!

In 2009 you posted videos of 19 SNETR races (and a football throw for the ages). In 2010 you posted videos of 14 races. This year we get to see 3 races that didn't count and none of the 120 races that did count. From the wipeout video and the Explanation of Tiebreakers video we can see that you shot some of the races from the judge boat, why not let us see them?
