Greetings,
I watched some sort of closed circuit boat racing that I think was from down under about 20 some years ago. The boats, with 2 man crews, could turn on a dime and give you nine cents change. INSTANT turns. This dinghy racing is tame by comparison. If any of our southern friends could put me onto some footage of this it would be appreciated. Thanks...
