hey folks,
I was on the SA boat and have to say that was the most incredible thing I have EVER seen. I got some great pics and vid. You haters really need to lay off the SA gang. When the cam ain't on what matters it's because it'll either get soaked or is un-focusable.Petey is the shiznit and I challenge anyone to do better. Aaron sat IN a center console half the size of a shower stall, ALL DAY, running the electronics. These guys work their azzes off. I f they didn't the guys who know me know I'd call BS on it.
When I get home and can sort out the pics I'll post some stuff.
Glenn and Jimmy were like butter. Some of the most amazing sailing I've ever seen. My heart goes out to Oliver, his family and Steve.Their flip ended years worth of effort, heart, and soul put in to that boat and wing. I gave 2 N-20 boards to Paul Larson(Invictus) to modify if needed for their boat. Oddly enough they slid into the assy. trunk fairly well. Now it's a matter of rather it's easier to fill or cut. we'll see. I saw the other half of their board floating and Glenn missed hitting it by about 10 feet.

Petey could use a camera director to help him find his present shot and the next one: The Spray must be awful. The commentary is pretty darn good, tho I would like some more vmg speed indications. Often it is hard for us to tell which boat is in the shots because they may be looking at something Petey isn't, except when Alpha is seen all white and Fredo is not. I guess we know who is in the match race, eh?

IMHO Steve's capsize wasnt that bad, had he (or his crew?) not fallen on the wing I think they could have saved it.

Well put Tawd, I bet none of the guys moaning have ever tried to film from a RIB or chase boat, especially for 3 hours non-stop.

The trouble with these set ups is that the guy driving the boat only knows how to drive the boat. The driver needs to be the director and have good knowledge of the racing so that HE can put the boat in a position where the camera has got something to film.
I still enjoyed it a load.

Oooooohhh. That had to be an excruciating carbon crunch when he fell into the wing. I really feel for those guys.

That's Steve going through the wing at speed. To bad he could not miss it by going the other way. But hitting the hull from 14 feet up would probably hurt him more!
