Solid rig, those Southern Spars boys truly know their stuff.

That's a lot of weather helm. Looks really fun though!

I don't think that's steady-state weather helm; there's not much fuss & fury following the rudder. I think the tiller is 'up' because the helmsperson is putting the nose down over a wave crest.

I could be wrong though...

I would agree with you Doug. Sailing little boats in waves requires huge weight movements and quick "large" rudder movements at times.

you're probably right, although I think a lot of the fuss around the rudder is hidden behind a wave as well. Like I said, looks like a lot of fun.

They were turtled pretty quickly after rounding the windward mark, so no money shot I don't think.
