Video: Extreme Sailing

I‘ve once had a training with one of the most experienced guys from the RYA showing us how to react when the boat starts to overpower in Force 10 winds. It felt like going straight down into the water when changing over for a tack. If you like that experience watch this short video. This is extreme sailing.

Watch the guy on Playstation walking forward at full speed at 3:04.
