interesting all these videos...but two comments (from someone with no brief for or against skiffs or windsurfers)

  • the porpoising that the boats are all doing suggests big potential improvements in rocker lines. windsurfers used to do that...now they don't
  • i get the impression that - apart from a few clips - windsurfers would go much faster....does that seem reasonable?  i think it's from the crashes, they seem slow compared to a windsurf wipeout..

The Twelve "porpoising" is part of sailing them in 35knots of breeze with an 18ft mast and standing behind the trasom with all four feet of the crew  other wise you end up doing this. Note the outrigger with the fruitloops ( footstraps ). This boat placed forth in our Interdomions (the closest we get to a world title)
