Sailing a 33 boat like a windsurfer.
The wind was light and steady a 6-7 knots. I was standing on the cabin top and decided to grab the boom like you would a a wishbone boom on a windsurfer. Worked like a charm. Just lean back a bit like you would on a sailboard.
I'm sure I looked like an idiot, but it was fun for the few minutes I did it. I used to windsurf a lot, and it felt remarkably similar in regards to reacting to small gusts or changes in wind direction.
