Skilled skippering Viper F16; the just must go on !

I believe the crew is Christa van Helden (helm) and Greg Goodall (crew) at the last Aus nationals.

I remember when that was first posted and chuckled. Grace under pressure baby!!!!

It would have been even more impressive if Christa could have worked in a tack and come around the other side.
