Drone Racing

I’ve mentioned Governors Island before (four years ago, actually). It was once a Coast Guard installation and later the NYFD used the abandoned buildings for fire training. Bloomberg cleaned it up and turned it into a tourist destination.

I took Victoria over on the ferry last Sunday. Her usual favorites are mini golf:

and walking the goats:

This time, near the farm we saw drone racing. Turns out it was the national drone racing championships.

We didn’t stay long, there were goats to walk, but damn those things were fast. You will have to click to enlarge and then you’ll barely see one in the upper right:
