There's a complete sequence of me trying to land which involved that gybe without the daggerboard.

from iGRF "What?Like stay on the one wire and go round the front like on a proper sail craft.   "

Elvstrom did it on an FD, said it was fast but unreliable but could have been good if he'd had more time to practice...........

Gybe with the kite up and no daggerboard? That was ambitious.

I really had no idea, it really was a case of 'dinghy sailing' how difficult can it be? Guy Farrant had loaned me that boat so I entered our local 'ship race' race in it (never really ever having sailed anything before or since just for fun or practise)so I did try to learn to sail in a Musto Skiff, probably not the wisest decision in hindsight, but Arrogance is such a tricky mental illness, not yet recognised, but I'm sure will be one day..
