I am sure after that , sailing in 20 knts probably felt like light air.Pretty impressive control,look at the last sequence,see how low they are trapping and how well trimmed the boat is.These guys are pretty good.The one guy Geof Rowden is still racing the 16.Pretty sure ,he is registered in the upcoming Worlds

I love this!


The best I have ever been out in was a legit 35mph gusting to 57mph, and while we were hauling, it looked nothing like that.

These guys are the real deal.

That's insane! I'm surprised that they put up the jib first though. Main goes up first and you don't get smacked in the fast by the jib clew.

I like how they sailed it off the beach and you know it's windy when some of the windsurfer's are reefed :o
