Wow. I couldn't agree more. What's the point, exactly?

There's no way you can do that without banging the hull. I see nothing to gain from doing that.

I think they just enjoy testing their skill and composure in a nimble lightweight boat with stable self tending rig.

Channels while narrow had steep dropoffs smooth rocks and they were in mostly light winds.

I used to teach students to sail to the dock and tie up on Cal 20's.... which was a great confidence booster.

I admire this far more than some of the idiot racing tactics that crunch so many boats.

That was fun. I want to see that
boat out of water. Looks like it
only draws about a foot but I bet
it's scraped up all along the hull.

Nice freestanding mast!

What's the big deal anyway? I used to bullseye womp rats in my T-16 back home. They're not much bigger than two meters.

If the lord had wanted us to sail in steel hulled boats, he would have grown steel trees. Applies to grp hulls accordingly.

Re: Not sure why this sailor thought it necessary to do this

The aerial timelapse video is very impressive.

There are others on youtube showing that same narrow harbor entrance from different POV with same or similar ships and they show the actual speed.
