Soft Water Action….
…Some hard water sailors would say that is a contradiction in terms but nonetheless this is interesting to watch-
It’s the start of the Sydney to Hobart race yesterday (that’s Boxing Day in Australia)- they have a ton of entrants every race but the focus is on the five giant super-maxis that start first- they have big canting keels, big crews, big sails, big foils, BIG budgets, and not one of them can go as fast as a two-hundred dollar CheapSkate!
But check it out anyway. A good way to kill a half an hour before you go into the shop or out on the road to scout ice or better yet, go sailing.
Happy viewing! The five-minute gun is at 25 minutes into the broadast- THINK ICE!!
