Re: Video of Jordan Series Drogue deployment...

There have been some great discussions on the JSD here:

Don Jordan and the Jordan Series Drogue

and

http://www.sailnet.com/forums/seaman...r-sailing.html

I was very skeptical early on...concerned about pooping and potential rudder damage with the stern-on orientation. But, I've since been persuaded that the JSD definitely rocks...via Jeanne Socrates' use in her run around Cape Horn and in the video above.

I still would love to see a video of the retrieval though (e.g. - how their retrieval line above worked).
