Multi-thousands of dollars for the boat, more thousands of dollars for running costs. Moments like that? Priceless!
Absofreakinlutely.

That is an awesome video. But a 36ft boat being pushed on a broad reach in 11kts of wind to a half knot over hull speed. Hmmmmmm. You certified that?

Remember, there are all kinds of BFS. It doesn't have to be a bash through 40 knots (though those are always preferred) - it just has to be big and awesome.

That's easily one of the best sailing videos I've seen. No, it won't win schwag like Mel's did - but it definitely rates a cert.

Re: Big Freakin' Sails

Hull speed is 7.7knots we were slowing 7.5 and hitting high 8s on the downhills. The downhills weren't very big.

Reminds me of the show, "Whose line is it anyway", where Drew Carey gave random points to whatever he liked and didn't need to explain why to anyone. I really liked the shot looking up at the water going by. But 11kts of wind can make a BFS. 11.

It's your show.

Okay Mr. Hard To Please. Seems like it's time for you to show us what you got.

Badass video please. We'll see if it rates.

You win. I got nothing.

I have a couple of sunset pictures, flying at a few hundred knots with no hands.
