I love how calm her helmsman appears, standing almost upright. . .

That's 'cos he can't see what the boat is doing. :D

The rail meat is on the wrong rail.

At least the helmsman has his eye to windward.

Looks a little deliberate with the helm hard up, the spinnaker over-sheeted, and the jib taking bad air from the 'chute. Or they got smacked the wind clocking and are trying to hold the course while someone gets at the spinnaker sheet.

Yeah, they're definitely trying to get that spinnaker in.

I'd be looking to ease the sheet. I notice the boats to weather are not flying their 'chutes.
