just finished watching the replays etc on espn...
quite amazing when that first jib blew out.. wow... .never seen one quite go like that before..
you could see them removeing the boom as soon as they got back to the harbour... ready to go tomorrow..
hopefully i can catch part of it on VS before i have to head out.. but i don't think so..
ahh.. the joys of sailing..
we once had a guy at a regatta.. downwind with the spinnaker up.. coming to the leward mark.. hails... "room to dismast!" seems he broke the forestay.. only thing holding up the mast was the spinny.... (hobie 18, catamaran)
gave him a trophy for most unique call on the course...
on to the next race!!
