Re: Darkside My A$$
I'm tempted to pick one up myself, I've rented a couple, never flipped one, but got close a couple of times. Turn downwind to ease off not up wind like a mono....The only downside is I almost pitchpoled when the waves were breaking over the bows instead of under. Easing the sheet, until the bows popped back up, and moving everyone toward the stern fixed it.
If you keep the sheet in hand, I don't see how you would flip it not on purpose. Also if you do flip it is much easier to right with the sheet out. The guy I rented from suggested unclipping the main clew so it wouldn't catch on anything.
