FOR SOME IT WAS A BAD DAY AT THE OFFICE
I used to do this and still would if I had a boat handy and it warms up a bit and if it stops raining and maybe when the lightning tapers off. Some of these clips are of professional sailors and thus the title. I never counted myself in that company but I did pitch-pole a 420 in Charleston once driving over a submarine wake during a race. I told my crew that she had it much easier than I did since she was so much closer to the front of the boat and thus nearer to the water as we buried the nose in the wake and the stern kicked up and over. A lot of these guys would have been much better off if they had learned to just "let go" the sail.
Many people think sailing is boring.
