We were rightly taught that the main enemies of our sailboats are the rocks from which we must always keep a proper distance. The theory says this. But there are those who manage with great technical skills, and a boat like the J80 that allows for great maneuverability, to tack within a whisker of the stones in very narrow passages, all solo.
Don’t believe it? Then you must take a look at this video, where this gentleman, not very young by the way, complete with a stylish hat on his head, juggles incredibly tight passages.
