Looks like a very expensive short cut.

Quick reactions by the bowman and crew of the last boat for the bowman to swim back alongside and get picked up without loosing any time/distance.

I just can't believe anyone would do this. There is obviously a channel - but not a lot of room for error. It's amazing what some will do when the "race face" is on!
