This ain't his first rodeo! It has nothing to do with luck. He is calm because he knows his boat, and he knows what needs to be done. I'm sure he has dealt with plenty of broaches.

Anybody who races hard has dealt with broaches like that. (actually that one was pretty "slow-motion" compared to some!)

Of course I have always had the benefit of an experienced crew, but it is usually dealt with pretty calmly. Doing it by myself in the middle of nowhere?
Can't say I would want to try that!

That guy definitely deserves your "BFSer" award.

The guy in the video before that? He was just a hack and an idiot!
