boy they really come to a dead stop in the chop, don't they? how heavily favored *was* the pin end?

Amateur hour. Yikes! I love the boats that flop onto port and then force the starboard boats away. Unreal.

Seriously, this is the worlds????
And people call the Young 88 a bumper boat class, this is unreal.
My thoughts as well! Thankfully these guys aren't approaching the line with any serious speed...
Pretty obnoxious looking fleet, flipping onto port tack knowing the start was recalled...

Geez, I have seen better boathandling in our PHRF fleet.. This is the worlds????? Shit, I'll bring the Jager and drive, Who wants to come with and win a worlds title?? +1 on #1 reason not to use a boat on the pin end.

Hit the boat, flop onto port, smack a guy on starboard.
I don't need to do no stinkin circles...

Ridiculous. Next year the committee boat will have a steel hull outlined with razor wire.

Was it the 'Special Sailing' Worlds? I thought the Shit Box 20 fleet was supposed to be better than that.

Result of too many fleets that "don't like to protest." People forget how to race properly. So we're basically just sailing around buoys, not racing.

This is crazy! Everyone just sitting in their boats acting like it was perfectly normal to ram the boat.
