And if it doesn't stop there?

Almost right . Right for knots but trabuchando is gibing not gybe ... in Castilian (Spanish).

Just saw the vid for the singlehanded spinn gybe. Very cool. Never want to try it!

As for the mate and I gybing our sloop, we do it regularly without giving it a second thought. Sheet the main in and gybe-ho....... Not a big deal, but our boom is 7 or 8 feet above the main cockpit. No ducking.

I have done it solo sailing with +30k wind but I have a trick. As I had the controls from the main sail away from the wheel (over the cabin) I used a permanently rigged line (one for each side) that catches the boom at the middle and is brought back to the cleat near the wheel. With that line I can make sure the boom stops at the middle and only than I let the line go slowly till the boom reaches the final position, a bit like it is done on that racing boat. I don't touch on the boom line over the cockpit till I have adjusted the front sail. Than I only have to adjust the traveler.

It will not take much more time than on that racing boat. Well, 3 or for times slower but they were really fast

Paulo

I single handed gybe regularly when I need to. Always try to go slow and controlled, center the boom along the way and ease it once the gennoa is across and situated.

The single handed video was nicely done, I wonder what the dark colored lumpy stuff is he is now headed towards?

We gybed an AS the other night, not sure how long it took us, but we did go slow, blowing in the 18-25 range.

Interesting the pole results, all but one say gybe regularly! I guess I better add my vote to try and make it over 98 or 99% or where ever it were! Oh yeah, that one, probably was trying to skew the results, of only by accident.....hmmmmmm.........

I gybe to maintain direction or get better speed. I, also singlehand regularly and last year had an Accidental gybe take my hat off and nearly, my head as well! Sailing can be a sport of inches.

One and only advantage of being a midget, you can keep your head.
