Here's a nice, juicy BFS. 30+ with gusts to 45...starting at about 2:04...



Now that's one nicely buried rail. But I wouldn't call it a "knockdown".

Here's a question for you experienced guys - shouldn't the third crew be keeping tension on both sheets during the flog/furl so they don't wind up knotted balls? Also - stopper knots anyone? That could have been bad.
