Very cool indeed! Looks like a lot of fun, even if rather wet when considering it "land sailing"

Regarding the worlds in Argentina which are just over, i have so say i was quite impressed by Nathan.
I remember in all his 49er victories that he was never on top of the board from the beginning but always had a super Endspurt. Again this time. Is wasn't enough for the win but i was very impressed by the second place.

Launching and retrieving a high performance boat can very difficult depending on tye of beach / slip / harbour / wind direction / force and wave hight.
Even a doublehander like the. 49er is very tricky in an non sheltered launch. A single hander is per definition more difficult. Depending on where you are it might be impossible to launch a musto performance skiff alone - without leaving the trolly in the water where it might be swept away.
In the 49er i remember the launch and landing being the most difficult maneuvers at all.
I do see why people are worried about this issue. Especially a singlehander.
With foils sticking out the bottom.

A very narrow sheeting angle on the jib.
