Dynamic New A-cat

Pics by Jaco Kleijwegt Localsailing.nl (hi-res pics later)

Chris doing the wildthing DNA style; brutal force by wind, boat and helmsman.
In the first pic you can see the perfect hull trim and in the others how Chris uses the gust to accelerate his boat. He pushes the boat through the wave and get it in a higher gear by working the sheet hard and by moving his bodyweight.
Chris applied this style when needed to get away form his fellow competitors. Where other A-cats have to shift to a light footed mode in a big breeze he just stepped on the gas.
