This is one of the coolest sailing videos I have seen.

Wow.  Talk about putting your boat through some tight quarters.  Impressive sailing - strange looking sail but a neat video.  I especially liked it since I fly drones.  Not enough guts yet to fly over water for long periods of time but getting there.  Thanks for sharing.  Really enjoyed it.  Sail On    Al

the most impressive thing might be how calm the admiral remained during the voyage....

Wow. I get nervous coming up to the dock. I wonder how much that sail, which had a support to keep it from collapsing, makes this sort of thing possible.

Holy cow. That’s amazing. I wouldn’t try that under power, let alone under sail. Those crazy Scandinavians.

I don't know. I'd try it with your boat.

Great video...thank you! I used to similar feats with my SeaPearl 21, although not quite as intricate as our friend in the vid!! Once sailed her up a kayak creek threading my way through the saltmarsh of Conklin Island in Barnegat Bay, NJ. No rocks though!!

Wow, I am impressed.

Now I need drone for next years Floatacelo gathering on the Barnegate Bay, nj.  No rocks,  it’s many drunks in pool Floats.  WorLd record quantity.  They bounce off CP Hull Fiberglass very easily.  No marks, unless they are drinking Baileys.
