That was video was great! As a fellow T27 owner, I can say that it is very frustrating to race the boat in light wind. Basically you're always in last place trying to keep your time on everyone else. The boat is a fantastic reacher sailing way above it's 237-ish rating. However, it's doesn't point worth a shit.
Keeldragger: Going to post this in the T27 site? Might be a little much for that crowd.
A couple things, the Mac26 mentioned isn't the same as the one everyone always goofs on in this forum. Apparently a version when it was an actual sailboat. And, you don't really need a tiller extension on that version of the T27 because the cockpit is really small.
