The sailing school students weren’t happy about being towed in.

 

They gave the towing boat a good stern look.

Doug Lord's new "Jumping Foiler" on its 99th attempt with same result. Doug is quoted in the interview, "But, the numbers show it will land softly and stern first. Maybe after I add more weight to the Trapwing......."

This gives a whole new meaning, and possibly a more appropriate one, to the tired old description, "victory at sea."
