Maybe the spectacle is the people spectating!

I don't see how this discussion is about reversing motoring a boat. "doesn't back worth a damn" in your opinion maybe?

"If your calling me or others a fool, then say it! Don't hint, it's petty"
Its pretty well acknowledged that any full keeled boat does not track in reverse. Personally, I think this is brilliant...sailing ingenuity at its best without throwing money at another piece of technology that is unreliable (thrusters).
