As teamwork "fantastic"

As boat handling "great" obvious exceptions excluded.

As a safety boat "piss poor" there is no way anyone should be approached at the continual speed that is shown unless it has been well practised with them before hand. And even with practise it could all so go horribly wrong.....


Sorry whisper, I have been a lurker on this forum for a couple of years, and I agree with you mostly. I'm not sure whether you are advocating this behaviour - or showing it as a bit of fun ( I'd guess the latter ) - but , for once, I thought I should contribute to the forum.

On video 1, incredible such a small wave can produce so much water splash, a direct sib punch, seems a very bad sib/wave timing with catastropic consequences for the drowned 30 horse...

Happy Boating

Have to agree with Loco, made a right cock of it !!!! Presumably the kill switch did its job but brought a wet end to the days fun....

The 1st was terrible timing u can see it rolling .. i watched them do this in bournemouth a few years ago , the crews practice the pick up at continual speed ,race around a bouy and back again im assuming its a global competition

Those who know me will tell you that I am in no way suggesting that this should be tried at home

It appears to be a world wide competition based on team work and boat handling skills, here's our boys from the UK:

I think the sibs are Australian? I thought they were made by Achilles? and quite expensive They look like they perform really well though

Edit: They are not made by Achilles but I can't see the name....
