Post here any videos of you sailing so other sailors can view them
Will be very interesting to see what boats people sail and some of their techniques (Might see some useful tips you can use in your own sailing )

Great video Popcorn and Mirrorking, really enjoyed watching it. That was hilarious Popcorn! You hate your crew that much? I am trying to find out a hilarious video that I had from early 2010 of me falling out of my Optimist. By the way Mirrorking you used some creative spelling of "spinnaker" in your video haha , no disrespect, was still a great video!

pop ur crews toestraps is what happened to mine today, i was just ooching over a wave and BAM the rope tying them in breaks and flop i go for a swim. I should have brought my GoPro out today, 10-15kts, 2.5M waves and we had to cross the shipping lane of the worlds second largest port (in an opti this is very scary), i missed the worlds biggest containor ship and then while trying to get passed another ship it but chickened out and headed back upwind in between the 2 channels as the huge bow of the container ship loomed closer
below is the bigger of the two ships i had to avoid
and this is what the other one looked like
It is something like a boat every 5 minutes 24/7 that comes in and out of the port, makes for a hairy crossing when you are maxing 3kts and they are doing 20kts!

thats a big boat!
talking about breaking toe straps during my assessment to be a sailing instructor the other week i broke the toe straps right in front of the assessor. but amazingly i landed in the water but sort of swung round the helm and then quickly jumped from the rudder to my hiking spot with out slowing the boat by much atall, bit hard to explain wish someone had a cam
