A dinghy sailor old enough to retire but who continues trying to get his Laser (and occasional other boat) into a watery groove.

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.
