Well, yeah.... No one actually landed in front of the boat.

Then they immediately shrug it off and head off on their way.

How fast?

Slow like a rocket...I wonder how fast they were going?

I don't know exactly how fast they were going at that time, but my guess is a tad above 20 knots.
Jens Quorning of Dragonfly trimarans was actually leading the race in another Tri (Orbit) until he grounded it, and damaged it. Orbit does not have an echo sounder because its too heavy :) (I'm not kidding you)

Cut them a break fella's, they can't help if they are slow.

I like the sailing part best. The getting there part is good too, but I like being at sea.
There are times when it's fun to go fast, but unless one is racing, What's the big hurry. If I was in a hurry, I wouldn't be traveling by sailboat.

Didn't seem quite fair, the guy in White is holding onto what appears to be runners. The poor guy in the yellow in the middle of those three had nothing to hold on to. He took a nice nose dive and almost went over the back end.
