Want fast?? here's fast for you...

Sorry about the video quality, not my camera.

I was chasing a powerboat a few weeks ago. I was sailing alone that day.

The guy actually stopped and shot me as I went pass him...

That day I was doing 13.5 knots when I passed him.

Today, when I landed he gave me the videos he shot.

Here's one.

Very nice Giu and I agree - you were really hauling. I'm curious though, do you typically prefer the lower helm, and why?

Again, sorry for the quality.

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.

Not much concern with Giulietta's deep keel, especially with her heeling angle - but it sure looked like the powerboat ran directly over that buoy.

I know since 99% of the time mine are the only pair of eyes looking forward on any of my boats I Need to be on the low side to look under the genoa to search for lobster pots or anything else that the genoa blocks the view of for that matter.

I can't see nothing under my genoa, as it covers the view completely.

The reason I sail on the low side, is to look at the genoa, to see the tell tales, because I'm trying to sail efficientely for the speed.

If I go on the high side I can't see them, as the main covers them.

Also, on the low side, I have a better feel of the boat in my feet because I'm in the lower point of gravity. I do get my feet wet...but beggers can't be chosers.

I did not clip the buoey, I actuly passed 3 feet from it.
