There is a reason they used to hold the Worlds Windsurfing competitions in Sardinia, hmm because it's windy perhaps

Looks like the yacht is doing very nicely in those conditions with some brisk sailing.

Thanks for posting, always nice to watch sailie videos whilst its dark and cold outside and we wait for the spring.

Another such pleasant location is Canary Islands - we have a number of "acceleration zones" here, where the wind speeds double. Below 15 knots we call it calm.

Some sailors get pasted like a brand new Amel 54 that lost both her sticks there earlier this year. But otherwise it is great fun.

My best sailing memories are either calms or gales.

Cool video.
