You lot know how to make a dinghy sailor feel inadequate don't you. There's me thinking that the 49er was supposed to be a hard boat to sail and everything.

Two things that freak me out: The 1:1 trapeze rope and how the clew of the kite is pulled across during the gybe without the kite collapsing. I shall definitely be showing that to the wife tonight and instructing her to try harder.

Superb sailing really impressive headcam shots are great, looks a great boat to sail when "mastered", looks very rewarding to sail. 
Fantastic videos I must say
