Sunfish máxima velocidad!

saw this clip posted on the Sunfish Forum today: Jonathan Martinetti of Ecuador flying across the water on his Sunfish.

Jonathan is no stranger to sailing fast – he was the winner (as a junior!) of the 2010 Sunfish Worlds in Italy.

    Wow!

    On a technical note, how does the ‘fish maintain its course with so much of the hull out of the water, and with the dagger board all the way up? I’ve never been up to planing speed, so I must be missing something. I thought one had to keep at least a bit of the board down for directional stability, even it it does result in more wetted surface.
