Look Mom, no holes in the sail!

Yeah that's right - keeping that back elbow on the outside of the boom can be crucial.
hey, i wasn't drunk at oyster point when i went through my sail... i was just a little tipsy and overpowered and feeling a little invinceable. sure seemed like a good idea at the time to go for an e-slider :-/
last time i made a hole in my sail i actually penetrated the panel with my head and shoulers between the 4th and the 5th battens. Not drunk like kevdawg in Oyster poit. That wasn't funny because it took me 5 long min to water start in the breeding ground of the great W. When i reached the beach i sat on a rock in shock trying to visualize what happened.
Perrita? Oh Shuuuu. As usual!
Matt likes to put holes in his sail when he's spocking OP'd... although his 4.2 came away unscathed after this attempt :-/
