Finn World Champ Whaling on it in Big Breeze

I just wrote that the 12 Foot Skiff was the hardest dinghy to sail in the World... but the Finn, ahh! the Finn. Watching the Olympians race this cranky, old, singlehander, big sail with long boom, in a big breeze, you just can't help to marvel at the skill, the physicality, the training to do this in close to thirty knots of breeze.

This isn't the first time I've featured Finn videos on Earwigoagin (not by a long shot):

Watching this makes me tired. Saturday at this year's Mid-Winter regatta was more than enough for me.
