  1. Nice video. I sail Lasers. I have some videos of that with my GoPro. I’ve always wanted to try this.

  2. that is original speed. those things do 5-7 times the speed of the wind. 10 mph wind=50 to 70 mph

  3. Great video, great cuts, great music. We iceboat on Buckeye lake, OH but it is usually my 2 DNs, a rat boat DN and an Arrow. I think we are the farthest south iceboating lake in Ohio. Our mud puddle is very shallow and they let it down in the winter so it freezes fast but ugly. Have you put a GPS on the boat for top speed runs? I got a 44.7mph on my new boat but the front runner wasn’t true. Try a DeLorme it will print a track of your run with max, average, duration ,location, etc.

  4. Nice pictures, pitty that the music has been stolen from Status Quo (april, spring summer and wednesdays = the original song) although I must admit that this interpretation sounds o.k.

  5. SICK!! Im outside putting hockey skates on my Hobie 16 as we speak, now wheres that duct tape….

  6. DDDDUUUUUUUUDDDDEEEEEE I LIVE IN BUFFALO MINNESOTA THIS IS THE COOLEST THING EVER!!! i was like oooh how many sturges parks are there? that sign looks like the one by the lake! this is so cool! I hope to see you on buffalo lake or pulaski in the winter!!!!

  7. not really, because when you are going downwind, you pick up speed and your apparent wind angle moves forward it makes it seem like you are on a reach and you can therefore acceed the speed of the wind. ocean racing boats like the volvo 70s do this all the time

  8. simple answer, if the wind is coming from behind, the boat won’t go faster than the wind.
    but if you are going against it (upwind) or along it (reaching), the fact that its moving through the air means that it creates its own wind, which will add onto the wind already there, making it go faster :).
    When going downwind, the wind that it creates is opposite to the wind already there.
    As a sailor, this is also why the wind seems calmer going downwind than upwind.

  9. Sometimes I just put this on repeat it really means alot to me. Just got the ringtone for my phone too if u want it check it out at DownloadEveryTone . com #varialbes#

  12. Still can’t beat a cat’ on a lake. Kidding, kidding, this looks amazing! Good to know that if I ever into a cold climate I won’t have to give up sailing!

  13. If you struggle with the concept of lift, don’t get on an airplane. The thing that makes these boats go faster than the wind is what keeps airplanes in the sky!

  14. thanks for answering, I even looked it up on wikipedia,Im sure your right but it seems wrong….thanks
