My GoPro steamed up first time out. It's since spent all it's off duty life living in a sealed freezer bag with a ski boot drier (big bag of silica) with the case open. When I want to use it I close the case before removing it from the bag and it's not steamed up on the water since.

Paint ballers use this on their masks to stop them misting up and to clean them at the same time, so pretty cheap, just don't know how they would work on a go pro camera, you may want to put it on the camera lens and the outside and inside of the case.

Could you post a pic of the transom mounting etc?

check out our latest video, a few capsizes in this one...

first one broke the pole and ripped the halyard out the cleat
3rd one ripped our kite sock all up the side
and after the last one we had to drop the main to get in (the doctor was in)

interesting I will try that next time, we already use the anti mist inserts but they are useless. I drove down to the club with the AC on which drys the air and put it all together in the car. Worked for about 15 minutes on the water. 

Its because the when the glass lens gets wet and its breezy it cools down very fast causing the misting. Not a problem in flat water 10 knots but the videos not quite as good compared to when its 20 knots.

going to have a search around for some ideas

these should stop the misting. a while ago i read the misting was due to temp differences because the gopro and/or the wproof case are at different temperatures. leaving the case (open) and cam outside whilst we changed seemed to stop the misting.

Great vid, shows the progression in the boathandling from the earlier vids and it's clearly paying off in the results! Particularly like the way you launch out of the last gybe down the back of the wave  Big smile

cold is a relative term. we have 5cm of ice over the whole lake, and no wind, and thick fog.
the video looks excellent - just like being there. 
i think we are sharing the same sport - my 49er looks about the same but I have to face the harsh reality that you olympic guys are a world away from a father of 2 with mortgage and job to hold down.
anyway, excellent to see you guys enduring the cold along with the rest of us :)

Heres a rough edit from our last camp in cadiz, bit of a shame that our gopro footage is all misted up. Still can not find a way to stop that when it gets cold, especially when we had it on in 8ft and 18knots. Ohwell, anyway let me know what you think
