Got the DVD!!!
Darryl posted it to me as promised. There's a lot of very good footage on it (and 'Floyd's "Dark side" as soundtrack
). Some of the sequences are at extreme zoom and a bit grainy but still very informative and good to watch. Excellent Darryl
Having just watched it once through my first impressions are:
AO looks and behaves bigger than 14ft.
She doesn't appear to bury at all despite the lack of waterline (I'm sure she WILL bury but doesn't appear to be any more prone than a larger boat)
The kite is quite small and cut very flat but appears effective.
She seems very predictable and docile in the puffs
She is QUICK (liked the gybe in front of the Nacra)
AO has a clean, uncluttered tramp area
Overall I can believe that she has shaken up a few of the bigger boats - its quite something to see her flying downwind whilst everyone else is sitting in on their Taipans and Nacras!!!
I rate this video:
