  1. So much of actual sailing has been lost with the advent of auxiliary power sources. Nice to see this guy, even with his outboard, back-winding the main to make his boat go in reverse.

    When I was sailing my Kaiser 26 single-handed, I couldn't do something quite as fancy as this, but when anchoring I'd drop the anchor, let out scope, and then scurry back to back-wind the main, and the boat would back down and "set" the anchor.
