Fall practice at WRSC - you have to practice gybes, otherwise you get rolled easily.

Fall practice at WRSC - an almost capsize. The jib stayed cleated in the old cleat during the tack, the boat would have capsized except the Boston whaler was in the way! The shroud hit the bow of the whaler, the boat filled with water, but then came upright.
