Sailing in Large Hail and High Wind with Only the Jib Up at 60° Doing About 8-9 Knots


Something you may find interesting-sailing in large hail, high wind sailing with only the jib up at 60* doing about 8-9 knots on a bucking catamaran- then calm near shore exploring some onshore places

Yes it is that also Mark-anytime I make a post there’s a small link on the bottom- but this clip is much than that -this 9 min.HD video shows what it’s like for the average cruiser- cruising some very incredible areas and stopping to smell the roses and sights along the way of the Southern Peloponnese -along with how quick the weather can change offshore-and near shore-some scenes that you can only see while sailing or flying- in a way most have never seen before-to me this is what cruising is all about- finding a place of breath taking beauty after sailing for a day or two and then exploring it - what more could you ask for? by the way there a lot more sailing time than 30 seconds, did you look at the whole clip?
