I had a dream, I was sailing, I was happy, I was even smiling. Then I looked down and saw that I was on a multi-hull and woke up suddenly in a cold sweat.

It's terrifying and not my idea of sailing. Amazing what some people do and how robust these sailing machines are. Very impressive and scary...

Fantastic footage. What about the shots from up the mast ? What sort of a nutter would go up the mast in those conditions ? Balls of steel or a remote cam ?

Balls of Steel? Hey it's a boat, brass maybe but most likely bronze.
