    G'day,

    Not sure if you are referring to the proa video or not, but if you are, you are welcome to publish it anywhere you like.

    regards,

    Rob

    Jet Man

    I won't haven't any doubts about that as there is no way you are going to get any lift to get out of trouble.

    While on this flying subject, how about this 'jet' unit:

    The control is amazing without a person on the helm to anticipate the conditions. Gets caught out a little but still keeps control. You would not find me on the foredeck tending sails at that speed in those conditions with no one else on board. In fact I would not be on the foredeck in those conditions - that is what crew do.

    You would want to be a good barefoot skier if you fell overboard with the lifeline attached! Do they have some trip system for that eventuality?

    He doesn't even appear to have a safety harness on !!

    You have to be young and agile for that type of sailing.
