scary...Have a look at that vid above -- constant 8's in fairly benign conditions.
For something a bit more exciting.. peak logged during some shenanigans at night.

Sea lawyers.... gotta love um. That rule would have to have some cute wording. Something like "no free flying jibs"
Many moons ago, I raced on an IOR lead mine that came with every trick sail that has ever been made. Jib Top, Genoa staysail, spinnaker staysail and yes, a blooper.

If someone wants to prevent someone else from using a blooper, they can't just say "no bloopers"
