sunfish sailing after a storm [video]

here’s a cool video of Bill Springer, a senior editor at Sail Magazine, sailing on a Sunfish the day right after tropical storm Hanna (not sure if it was the tropical storm in 2002 or the hurricane in 2008).

it was pretty cool to see him hiking out with the video camera in one hand, while keeping the mainsheet trimmed and a hold of the rudder/tiller with his other hand.

    He had his hands full alright! While growing up in orlando, I recall the surfers always heading out before/during/after storms to catch the big ones. I was curious where the heck this was and Google told all:
