My son on his Laser in his regatta last weekend. He was the top youth even beating someone 10 years older than him.
We have similar conditions where I sail and everyone surfs their boat right up onto the beach when they come in and then drags it out of the waves. The trick is to sit right back on the transom to keep the bow up. You get some scratches but no major damage.WTH???
Both these look like they've been drinking all day. Too much line and confusion on deck. Its not that hard.
I grew up launching and beaching in the Florida surf. Head in...steady...pull the dagger as needed , let the rudder come up ...hit the beach at same time let the sheet out fully. Get out drag the boat on to wet sand while the sail is fully dumped. Never ever had one roll in the surf even in 4 foot waves.
