Did some around the bay racing in Harbor Springs Ugotta Regatta a couple weeks ago on the Farr 280. Kept trying to use the bellybutton for take downs and had a brutal shrimping. You can see me pulling the line at 15 seconds and then getting launched into the cabin top as the kite anchors the boat.
The tactician thought we were aground we stopped so fast, in the middle of Little Traverse we know that is pretty unlikely. The general consensus on the boat was “fuck that bellybutton” as you can hear in the video.
Managed to pull out a 2nd place behind the C&C30 Extreme2 for both races and the regatta. – Anarchist Dillon.
