We did some heavy weather sailing over Thanksgiving, for those that didn't see the Youtube video over at BFS thread here is a short video of that going downwind: Moondance Downwind Sail - YouTube
The first part of the video is sideways. It corrects it self after the first minute. Still learning how to shoot video.
Thanks for the information ... I CANNOT WAIT!!! It is the antsiest I've been waiting for sailing season to start up here.

The BFS sail looked like a lot of fun.
