Great Video Gui! Fred and his cohort do an awesome job. They may only be ten but they sure seem to have a good grasp of what they are doing. One spot in the video seemed to have ALOT of heel...I had to grab my chair to keep from going over!
Think I could hire them to give my wife lessons? Goodness knows she won't listen to me...and I don't know why because I sure yell loud enough .
Guys, He will love to read your remarks tomorrow..
By the way I edited the original post and added 3 more videos there.
If you don't want to go back to see them they're here..
Added the 3 videos bellow here.
On the first video you can see fred holding the bow slightly into the wind to allow the genoa to flap so his friend has the power to sheet it in...a weak man's technique. "stretch her while she flaps"...I taught him that...ehehe
