Yeah, how did it turtle so fast??!

The guy who hangs on (not you, I assume) rolls over and grabs the hull. That seems like the drill to learn when capsizing? Stop, drop, and roll and hang onto the hull. The other person slides on by! :wink:

It turtled so fast because I'm 225lbs and I was on top of the hull! I gave it a good headstart and the wind on the tramp finished it off nicely. Only took about 5-6 minutes to un-turtle (again 225lbs and 6'9" tall) but we missed that race!!
