Re: Knock Down!

Sweet! They sandwiched the Chinese broach between several windward broaches.

I am guessing they were not using twings...you can see the head oscillating wildly before the boat starts rolling. There is photo with the spinnaker pole near the water and the boom in the air. I assume this was followed by a jibe and a (Chinese) broach....

It has been a while since I participated in racing on the Chesapeake Bay, but I remember participating in only 1 race with a reaching leg, other than the distance races, all the others were windward-leeward courses.
