Hey any of you know of any good/great web sites showing sailing wipe-outs?

I saw, at a boat show, a vidoe of a big boat with a lovely red spinnaker hoisted doing something rather nasty.   Can this be found on a web site?

Lets create a clip library for those dull days...

Will Sunnucks splatting his Hurricane.  I watched this happen and it was just a touch windy.  IIRC the annonometer at Grafham hit 45 kts in this gust.

 

And yes it hurt.

Headfry the I think the boat your thinking of is Silk 2 pitchpoling under spinaker at Cowes. You may find it on the Beken site. They published the pics originally.
