I Think They Described the Skipper Incorrectly




Might have been posted before..... but I wonder how fast he got going.... and am quite surprised the boat made it.... without pitching ..... Looks like the rudders are completely out of the water for a while....LOL! Remind me never to do this please someone?

Worth the risk....... I wonder if he even knew what he was risking.......?

Skipper is a glorious son of a ...gun. I don't know what he was thinking when he did it, but I know glorious when I see it. I bet he started off with a big smile on his face, lost it (smile) for a few moments, and then got it back for keeps.

I live about 2 hours north was staged event, meaning guy new what to expect was written up in local Multihull Mag here in Australia.
He could have got to same destination without crossing the bar but many many more miles.
Is a great reason to have a cat though... and know how to surf
