Ooohhooookkaaayy, you think you've tried some greasy sailing??

Where you go where you shouldn't and get away with it, usually aided by a very high tide and a sense of youthful bulletproofness?

Yeah, but nothing like this, though. I think the big square-top main helped reach above the rocks for wind.

Holy smokes.

Visualize the vastness of the oceans; the infinity of the heavens; the fickleness of the wind; the artistry of the craft and the frailty of the sailor. The oneness that may be achieved through the harmony of these things may lead one to enlightenment. - Flying Welshman

That gives a whole new meaning to having control of your vessel under sail.

Impressive, but not risks that I'd want to take. Looks like a nice boat. Thanks for sharing.

Ah, now I get it. That's what they mean by "holey cow".


The only dumb question is the one that you didn't ask because you thought it would make you look dumb.

Perhaps this guy is the KING of skinny water sailing.

"Any idiot can make a boat go; it takes a sailor to stop one." Spike Africa aboard the schooner Wanderer in Sausalito, Ca. 1964.
“Believe me, my young friend, there is nothing - absolutely nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.” ― Kenneth Grahame, The Wind in the Willows

I like how he back winded the head sail at the 58 second mark to bring the bow to starboard faster. Impressive.
