Love the bob under the boat technique, beats swimming all the way round, watching that I had a DURRR obviously moment!
This technique is outlined on the Contender site, which has a series of "how to" videos.http://contenderskiff.org/en/the-boat/howtosail.html
Click on the "How to capsize like a pro" link, and about 1min 10s into the vid he shows the "Heavy weather, "Eskimo" technique."
It's worth a look at a few of his other tutorial vids. Not only because of the enviable scenery of I presume Lake Como, or the illustration of why it is such a great and glorious thing to be born Italian,... and male, but also because I am sure there is quite alot to be learned from them.
A similar sequence of tutorial videos on the Canoe site featuring ways of taking/gybing/getting out of trouble might be difficult to develop but would be a valuable addition to the main site. Is such a thing possible? Perhaps the Canoe class could match these with our own Welsh, or Cumbrian scenery!
