    Default Falling off yachts

    Video is 3.38 minutes total running time . Best boom dismissal I've seen at 0.30 seconds.

    The sequence starting at 1.59 could very easily have been fatal. Obviously a very well drilled crew.

    Now I know why I don't race. No lifejackets, no tethers and some pretty rubbish safety boats.

    Ah ..... I thought he meant "at 3.38 minutes running time: Best boom dismissal I've seen" so I jumped forward to 3.38 (I'm a very busy bee ) and the video just ended.
