Another great video by the Master Jedi Alex! Got to love those cute orange pants. The part I love best is when he is trimming the halyard and that cute wiggle from those orange pants. I wonder if that wiggle is his secret when trimming?

PS Stupid questions for Alex - What effect does the mast have on the entry wind to the leading edge of the luff on the sail in particular the close haul to beam reaching? How far back on the luff does the wind really start to flow across the sail? (therefore the wrinkles in the leading edge of the luff might not mean much for airflow)
