HE IS DRAGGING A DROGUE GOING BEAR POLES AND STILL DOING 3 KNOTS. (Drogue is a device funnel shaped w/open ends towed behind the boat, Bear Poles is not having any Sails up)

Jeff is THE REAL DEAL. I've been following him via Bob's posts about him.

I'm not even going to stamp this one BFS because there is no question. None. He is Hall of Fame Material (Actually, I think I'll make a new stamp. Hang on a mo.)

Holy crap. Seeing that thing flying on a foil is mind-blowing.

I LOVE what technology is doing to sailing.

And in case there was any question...

Oh hell yeah!!

Not sure what happened there Jack but the file is not visible. For interested parties , if you right click on the title it will take you to the presentation. (forget it, link in previous JD post is fixed)

Not sure if this is BFS applicable but I was just over at YBW and saw the link to this video. Fookin' 'ell. Bit rich for a tired old sod like me but wow. (apologies if this is old news)
