Regarding the title On Edge Sailing
of this thread:
I used to sail a Hobie 14 just for fun on a lake south of Cape Town
. In a boring F2 with the wind
on the beam I would sit on the lee hull
, sheet in hard and wait for the windward hull
to rise high and then scramble uphill and happily sail on one hull, the only boat
really healing over in that wind
. But it so happened that when I sailed passed a nice bikini-clad woman on another boat I would forget the wind and .... oops! Over she went.
I guess I still hold the record
for not-much-wind capsizes on that lake!
But Phaedo looks good!
