Optimist Green Fleet to Olympic Tornado in a Day!

During the recent Victorian Youth Championships some of the sailors got to experience some faster boats. None more so than Sailing Shacks Optimist Green Fleet sailor Lachie Hartnett who at age 9 steered David Hart’s Olympic Tornado Hartatak with full kite up and fly a hull and then………roll it over see below. Lachie and David recovered and went on to sail off at speed again. See video on http://www.youtube.com/sailingshack of Lachie and Dave sailing in 6-7 knots of breeze.
