Giu - ya know, I gotta say, so far Charlie wins the award for a no-MDB photo of a truly gnarly sail. I've seen a lot of photos and videos around this dump - and that one is just freakin' big...and real. Photo - happened.

And by the way, I watched the steering without a rudder video again yesterday - since I'm sure I'll sail mine right off very soon - and those videos are really good learning tools. Kudos! However, I have to say that in that particular video, when you're releasing the traveller back to lee - your deck looks like a junkyard dude. Lines snarling all over the place - that's just plain dangerous! I could trip and fall into the ocean or something if I was slobbering drunk and trying to head to the stern for a wee.
