Following on from part 1 which we published last week, here's more great action from on the water at Looe Sailing Club in the UK, including Redwing mast-rounding chaos, Enterprise & Redwing crews missing the toe-straps, an 18ft Skiff righting going wrong, a big Redwing port-starboard collision, an Enterprise demonstrating how NOT to gybe, a Laser & Enterprise blasting along and gate start collisions, all accompanied by the chuckles of the rescue boat.

Another must-watch video!
