Every time they buried the nose going downwind I found myself wondering if the owner should give David Raison a call when it's time for a new boat. Those are precisely the conditions where his scow concept would pay some dividends. Juan K applied a similar approach to his VOR design, and we saw how that turned out.
Great footage. Makes me want to be offshore, even on a boat as wet as Jethou
, particularly if the owner is springing for that handsome Gaastra gear!
