Woof, that was pretty skittery on the downwind leg! Almost submarining as they penetrated the wave backs. That's some hairy sailing!

I didn't know a sailboat could go that fast! During my years of crewing on around-the-buoys racing, I always hated being rail-meat on the upwind legs on a rough day. Really pounds the hell out of your gut muscles.

Hootchie Coo!

"Hoochie Koo" idinit? ;)

Looks like a hoot though.

Amazing that PFD's aren't worn. What's the MOB procedure in that kind of racing?

Was the prop-wash from the camera copter a factor?
