A Dutch Schakel dinghy really moving

I previously posted about the Dutch Schakel dinghy when West River SC sailor Rene' de la Rie reminisced about his early teen years learning to race in one .

A plywood dinghy, they look moderately V'd in shape, maybe closest in concept to our Windmill class.

I came across this very short video of a contemporary Schakel (with trapeze) absolutely screaming along on a close reach. Now this is what dinghy racing is all about!
