Mischa flying in Hyeres

Mischa flying pic and (c) by Denis Lucci

Although Mischa demolished the fleet downwind in the races wiht a bit of breeze only a few people did see him fly. This pic might even be mistaken for a jump, therefore more pics later in which you will see a stable flight.
Roeland and I got a clinic by Mischa last Sunday when the races were cancelled and he taught us how to fly and keep control. If you do it wrong the boat becomes a wild animal and you start making aggressive jumps. If you do it right you can control the boat easy in 24 knots of breeze. It is unbelieveable how well  we could control the boat downwind. Flying makes life easier and the current wind limit becomes a joke.
You have to adjust the way you sail downwind but then you can control the height/heave with steering and sheet tension. If you do it right you will sail 10-15 degrees deeper and beat the angles of an F18.


  1. Thanks for sharing this picture. I'd love to do this...but can't as there is no such place near us.

  2. Everything seems to have a slightly bluish tinge to it, most noticeable
    when you're looking at light grey areas. The introduction of the Samsung Chromebook into the marketplace signifies a shift away from the traditional concept of a laptop where the devices itself stores all of the information that you require. The Samsung Chromebook is essentially a laptop that can only surf the internet and run apps.
