Great sunset shot from the bow. Real classic moment.

just quietly why are you back winding the job every time you sail? faster/still able to fly a hull if you sail it properly ;)

The Soundclip makes the video good work.

Nice Video!
Just had my first sailing day of the year last monday. Unfortunally there was no wind...

One strange thing I noticed on the video, it seems to me that you consequentely have the jib sheet cleated the wrong side ??? (cleating the windward side instead of the leeward one...)
Any special reason for that?

What he said. Control your jib from the other side! Your closing off the slot!
Great vid though!

The reason is because I taught myself to sail so I never knew about controlling the jib properly. But I have since learned. Thanks for the tips!
