Got an override on one of the boats I race on. Couldn't ease the sheet, couldn't unload it with another. No time to keep banging that corner. Skip calls for a cut, sheet gets cut, we tack and get a second place finish instead of DFL.

Unfortunately after cutting the line flew up and wacked the jib trimmer and bloodied his nose. He's a tough nut though, used to do competitive stick fighting. Moral of the story, watch your face when cutting a loaded line.
