    Ironic name for this Formula... "Coming in Hot". Happened at the LOTO Shoot-Out (Lake Of The Ozarks) at 2AM. Driver was arrested for BWI.

    Not sure if we ever saw this one in this thread:

    Apparently besides breaking the hull a few injuries were sustained... broken bones and such.

    I'm not much of a sailor, but do they have the wrong sail up for the wind direction??

    Baltimore Bob, you are correct. Did some time on a blow boat in the past. You always have to have some of the mainsail up as that is what gives you drive. Without it, well you see the result in the vid. Inexperience and lack of preparation are a recipe for disaster.

    Not so, you can sail just fine with just a head sail. Furling head sails are much easier to handle as conditions change as opposed to having to reef or lower a main sail.
