Thanks DT for the update.
Yes. I hardly post videos here, yet was struck by how incompetent that skipper seemed.
Also, besides the obvious of surfing in on the front of a wave, I've learned to be patient and willingly make a 360° to better align the boat, if while waiting, we get pushed off line.
The Kadey Krogen, with her big rudder, can do a 180° in less than 2 boat lenghts, < 90'.
Backing and filling, I can turn around in about one boat length without my bow thruster that I broke in 2015.
