It's not really even broaching. The rudder is still in the water.
Frankly I don't see a problem with that picture (or what is happening in it) and if you do, then you shouldn't buy -any- sailboat. Take up golf instead, I understand golf carts are nice & safe.

A 3 wheel golf cart is much less stable and infinitely less fun. Get yourself some training wheels if that looks Fubar to you!

Hell yes Id get one. That's just proof it will let u do that and not get water in the boat.

Flat mains holding it down Vangs forcing boom into the drink and boat goes over, vang on =operator error right then , Blow the Vang is the call !! Learning curve is scary at times on big-ol-main boats. Big wind is fun. After u figure HOW. Usually boats do what crew lets them do.

Operator error. And if I showed you a picture of a crash in the PV race of the 125 you would say the same thing.

We're TIPPING !!!

Yep, every vehicle ever made that has been photographed in any sort of messed-up oreintation is obviously unsafe and should be avoided. By you.
