Survival Mode

Take a look at Day 5 of the Finn Gold Cup - 25-30 knots and big waves.  Dominated by Ben Ainslie.  "Survival mode" was how Ed Wright described it - as he was leading until he capsized during a gybe.  I have never sailed a Finn, but it is also a single hander with unstayed mast and single sail and looking at these videos, I am glad our club has a policy of not sailing in wind over 20 knots.
