Default Vintage 1960s Offshore Race Videos

Are there any old vintage 1960s Offshore Race Videos out there? If so, where would I find them?

Also any stats on the Winners of the races from that era?
That is: Year, Race, 1st Place, 2nd Place, etc.

The first portable video cameras and recorders capable of recording offshore races were not used until the mid 70's.

Marco, try Flying Fish over on Boatmad - the UK equivalent of John Crouse, though he won't admit it himself! I think the Boatmad crowd are about to put his huge record of results onto the site too. Try sending him a PM. (I take it you've seen his wonderful offshore library too?!)

I know Michael has video tapes, with interviews on them, of all the Cowes' races of the 60's and a movie about his Dad that was filmed by in Europe in 67.

There were several films made during the late 60s or early 70s -
To Conquer the Sea - 15 minute film narrated by Bill Wishnick - another one too - but it slips my mind - House of Arnold Pictures - in New Jersey made them from 16 mm film.
