This is great...

I follow this very cool Swedish couple who have an outstanding channel on Youtube - RAN Sailing:

Their latest episode had them landing in Cascais. Anybody recognize the boat in the background.



What an old shoe!!! Heh-heh.

A Buizen 48 in 60 knots...



That's a tough boat.

It'd be destroyed! Keel bolts loose, bulkheads adrift, rig slack. An AMVER rescue in the making for sure!

P.S. Just for clarification purposes, "HR" in this instance is short for "Hunter" right?

Ice boats give BFS a whole new meaning. Maybe even a new category - BIBFS ? Or BFIBS? BFBS (Big Freaking Bone Shakers)?
But we won't talk about the crashes, okay?

Re: Big Freakin' Sails

This is a BFS entry in abstentia for the guys with the hairy sacs who took this ice boat to 101 mph on Lake Winnebago in 1967. This boat was built in 1947, and was recently bought by our local ice boat club.







Yes, that is a winch in the last one.

Fail.

Heh-heh. I forgot all about this. Doucheyness in the olden days.

Click the arrow beside Ausp's name to see the context. We dominated the race in a Pearson 365 ketch, even against 65' racing boats, and this guy is talking about form?

Go figure.
