The negative of using a bridge is that generally you won't get any wave & heeling action to speak of.

Can't have everything..... :-)
Is true, most pictures are water level though and you can get from firends. The bridge was a nice stable platform. Unfortunately that day the wind was 4 knots at best and to even get the sails to fill was difficult

Would be great if you could take pictures at your event since you have the equipment and maybe post some.
