Ever notice how much the camera flattens the wave action... never looks anything like it really was in person.

BTW, IMHO, the real problem you risked in coming back into the channel isn't pitchpoling, but broaching. Pitchpoling generally only happens when the boat is surfing down a wave front that is larger than the boat is long, and the bow gets stuffed into the back of the next wave. Broaching is what happens when the waves pick the stern of the boat and swing it around—which is far more likely with 10' standing waves than pitchpoling is.

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.

Thanks Dog, that is what I was looking for, you are absolutly right.
Broaching would have been the correct term to use. I'll try not to make that mistake again. LOL!

And yes, the camera does have that effect.

TJk,
Fantastic videos, Captain! Looks like you get some really choppy wave action on Lake Michigan. Good job... By the way, feel free to email me at my work email address: sailhog@hotgayporn.com.

nice video - I thought it was awfully quiet, until the camera came out from under the dodger. I have a dodger, but as it doesn't protect me, when I am at the wheel, I am always out in the wind / noise!

A couple of questions:

What type and length boat is that? Looks like a beauty!

I have been out a couple of times, in similar conditions, in my older 30'er, and found that mine doesn't seem to sail very well, with just a headsail. Last time, in 25-30kt winds, and 6-8' chop, I used a double reefed main, and furled small jib. The jib had terrible shape, though, as it's older, and has no foam luff, etc. With just the reefed jib, the baot wanted to go away from the wind, until I got the main up! I do have a smaller storm jib, which would probably have been better than a badly shaped, reefed jib.
I realize that 25-30kts would not really warrant the use of storm sails, but when your girlfriend is NOT comfortable, and the boat is heeling too much, I wonder if it would have sailed better that way?

Have you sailed in similar conditions with both sails up (and possibly reefed)? If so, how differently did the boat handle?
