Great sailing video avazquez. Were you at the helm, or the fearless maniac with the video camera?

Your cameraman needs to have his head examined.
I can understand the top of the mast, but on the spinnaker pole?

I am not the maniac, he is a good friend that just loves sailing and anything related to it. He sails Tornadoes, Melges 24 etc. professionally so this is probably nothing for him. I was down at the deck holding that halyard.......another friend was at the helm.....but we had a glorious sailing day.....................as you can see....

. . . can see it fine from my OFFICE DESK!

Now I think I'll go down to the marina, too rainy to take the boat out, but I can still dream. . . . Thanks for sharing.

Blue, you sound a lot like me.
Anytime is a good time on the boat.

Got that right Tim, actually been going out sailing most every evening after work and every weekend. Wife's away for two weeks, so I'm living on the boat playing sailing bum.

Even if he were the maniac...he'd never admit it on a public forum... his life insurance company might be watching...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

My favorite Beneteau of all times...I remember when they first came out, a very rich man in Portugal bought one. I used to dream about having one.

That boat is still around, near where Fred sails, and still sails hard...that is a Benetau form when they where built like a boat should be built.
