So to start off with here is a very nice shot of Alegre, thanks for the from the Bowman onboard – Matt Cornwell, fresh out of the box Mini Maxi racing in the Giraglia Inshore Race. 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).
Here is some great footage of the Oracle AC team two boat testing out in San Fran, I did read somewhere they had some headstay issue with the new boat, hope they get it all sorted.
So thought we would have a break from all the fail videos this week and move onto some awesomeness.
First up we have some awesome footage for a Mini650 hauling ass in some breeze, you can tell the bottom is very clean on this one….
We are back with some Friday Fail Boat videos for you to ease you into the weekend.
Up first a great video from this week of BMW Oracle Jimmy Spithill taking a nice dive. Think you need to work on your legs and entry position there Jimmy.
A Tribute from the America’s Cup.
Iain Percy and Andrew Simpson – 2012 British Sailing Team – Star.

The Andrew ‘Bart’ Simpson Memorial Service FB page – lots of great photo here.
So here we are, Bank Holiday Weekend is upon us, I hope you all get out on the water and have some fun, but stay safe out there!
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!!
