Some nice round-ups, there!! Great video.
Yeah, it can really sneak up on you when you're sailing downwind like that. Even without a chute up, you can get caught unawares with a full main and genny as the wind builds from astern.
But rounding up or shredding a chute is slow. That's where it's nice to have a smaller, heavier chute like a 1.5 oz. Some of those in the video looked more like all-purpose chutes. Having multiple chutes is expensive, but so is replacing them.
