Creative,

Awesome!

Thanks a ton for sharing your experience.
It gives this landlocked Wave sailor some enjoyment, until I get a chance to sail again (Northern Michigan, in August).

Great video quality.
What camera did you use?

Thanks again.

Happy Sailing,

Ron

Freaking Awesome.

Best capsize recovery I've ever seen.

Thanks,

I thought that was the camera that you used, but your video quality seems to be better quality than most of the other videos that I have seen (that used the GoPro).
Or maybe it was just the content of your video that made it seem so much better.

Anyway, I'll just have to postpone my purchase of this camera until I have purchased a couple of other upgrades to my Wave (sigh).

Creative my hat is off to you, when I lived in Indy and sailed all the time on Eagle Creek Reservoir with my wife and pal Lee Wilhite, we used to tear it up on our H16s.

Then down to the Texas City Dike and tore it up on my Nacra 5.2.

These days I'm sailing my Wave, but have not had a day like yours (yet).

I use a GoPro, head mount, works great.

Keep these videos coming.

Another great video! Nice work righting the boat without going for a swim (the first time).

Yeah!! That was pretty cool. I've perfected the art of only dipping in to my waist when righting the Bravo, and even then, I'm only in the water for a second at best. To be able to right the boat without getting wet sure does appeal to me living in Canada with COLD water. Is that something that you can do regularly? Half the time? Pure luck, and you just had to put it in the video? :lol:

Seriously. Is that tough to do?

What is the cost for a good drysuit?

About what I paid for my 1997 Wave last year!!!
http://www.nrsweb.com/shop/product_list.asp?deptid=1174

I originally got mine for white water kayaking. But it is AWESOME for sailing once the air/water get chilly!
Nothing like being totally warm and dry all day even when you dump it!
May be better deals elsewhere...but this gives you an idea! Non Breath-able versions are loads cheaper but I would not recommend them as its like wearing a rubber rain suit. My goretex Kokatat breaths well and you don't get clammy in it all! I would suggest a relief zipper, and built in booties!!!
Kokatats are high dollar...but their company backs them VERY WELL.
I just sent my 10+ year old suit in and for 20$ they will pressure test it and fix any leaks. If its deemed to have the laminate broke down they will send you a brand new suit! Basically a buy it once for life deal. The only wear items are the gaskets...but with some 303 applied now n then mine lasted 10 years before I had Kokatat replace them.
