Some great work by British Sailing Team Mark Andrews on spotting the guys at the back of the boat, either waving a sausage at the camera man or getting rid of some excess fluid(peeing off the back of the boat).

It was to be a light shake down but all systems were go and so was the AC72 foiling around the bay.

Get used to the sight, it will be a frequent one over the coming months.

Sailing Fails - Friday Fail Boat

Sailing Fails from Yeah Bloody Nice

This week I have some quality Fail boat and sailing fail action for you, so grab a brew and sit and relax and dream about being out on the water!

A lovely crash gybe here from Pelican Racing – Based in Cowes Isle of Wight.

Bernard Stamm showing what it takes to get an Open 60 back up after a broach…..looks like a lot of work.

Now this is a bit of an odd one, the guy on the Windsurf is about 70 apparently…..so how is in the wrong?

Did somebody order a Chinese? Have a look at about 1:30, I think the order was put in then!

These guys pre-orders the Chinese, it was waiting for them just outside the Yacht Club! Not the best place to do it, love the cheers that go up as the round up!!
