The only thing I see wrong here is that it's only September and your wearing an f'ing drysuit. Looks like you've got the rest under complete control!

Two more feet would probably fix that.

How the hell is he supposed to walk around with four feet, Dave?

He's a bright boy I'm sure he'll get it sorted out.

+1 I suspect he could have recovered if he wasn't flung forward and could have released either the traveler or the spin sheet.

Slight hole followed by a massive puff and shift. I saw it coming from a mile away, knew it had my number a long ways out.

I f'd up.


I'm boatless.

There's got to be a good shot in there for the Sailing world Dr. Crash calendar.

I agree - the Dr. Crash calendar has been sucking this year.

Does anybody see the BIGGER problem here?

Let's see:

Karl bought the boat.
Karl sails the boat.
Karl dumps the boat.
Karl gets the bumps and bruises and humiliation.
Karl has to fix any damaged equipment...

Geoff Sobering gets the copyright.

Humiliation? Its like taking a dump. Everyone poops (there's even a book). It just isn't caught on camera too often.

On the last pic you can see all of us watching karlos eat shiz. Pretty funny but it slowed up the sequence.

Always easier to say from the armchair:
Wouldn't spilling some spin sheet and heading closer to the wind the anti dive strategy if you sail with such an heel angle?

Cheers,

Klaus

See me squatting? That's me dumping some sheet. I try to keep the rudder in the water, and usually I'm shooting for about half in the water with the leeward rudder. Unfortunately squatting is about the only option with one hand on the sheet, and its usually enough. Usually....

I should've been in the footstrap, but I think I was too far back most of the time anyway, just this gust up and raped me.

Jeez, won't somebody comment on how finely polished the boat is? I spent four hours washing and buffing that baby the weekend before!
