Re: Big Freakin' Sails

Perhaps not a BFS but at least an IFS (Interesting Freakin' Sail). This guy "single-hands" his Albin 27 with only one hand including docking x2 under sail, readying the boat, and putting it all away.

Showoff?

Good practice?

You decide!

I think, that if you tried this exercise, you would learn a lot about your boat and it would be a great way to teach yourself exactly what process are easy to do and what needs to be re-thought. If you do what he did, on a light air day, you (and your boat) be much better set up for the real BFS when you really need "one hand for the ship and one for yourself. "

I have a sauna on my boat, therefore I win.
