    I was going to place this under the multihull subject thread, but when you view it you will find all sorts of sailing craft....and most all of them are rather fast models.

    This is an excellent video not to be missed:!::!:
    ...and turn on the music...good as well

    Harken's Anniversary Video

    ...courtesy of Scuttlebutt

    This week's video was produced by Harken, who are celebrating their
    40-year anniversary this year, and have created a tightly edited
    celebration of 'all things sailing'. Footage includes landsailing,
    iceboating, scows, skiffs, offshore mulithulls, and pretty much anything
    else that floats and sails. There are also some pretty cool segments of
    winch machining and robotics assembly. The 6:07 minute video provides a
    handy reminder of how many types of sailing there is, and how much fun
    it can be

    The Playstation one looks pretty wild. (I mean they all look pretty wild but..)

    Regarding the Playstation, How are they reefing the sail?
    is it rollerfeefing?

    Reefing the Maxi's

    I assume you are asking about reefing the mainsail? No these big boys were not roller reefed, it's slab reefing

    "Alain Gautier and Mich. desjoyeaux frolicking in Biscay prior to 1999 TJV. They capsized shortly after the start. .... Too scary for most. ..."

    very cool Brian, I guess I'll just keep my ultimate sailng to my sunfish and hobie on wicked windy days. What happens when you overextend one of those million dollar babies?
