I went out this past weekend. It was a warm and beautiful day. I took out
the Exocet Pacer 300 powered by a Maui Sails MS2 9.5. I managed to leave the
fin cover on during my first run out.  It felt like there was no fin at all.
I thought I forgot how to sail (not that I'm claiming I ever knew how). The
wind was offshore, so by the time I hit the windline, I was too far away to
see very well on camera. Here is the link to the video. It's the last video
on the page. Enjoy!

Great video - like the way sailing and rigging are interleaved rather
than making it straight chronological. Was there audio? Couldn't hear
anything but may have been pilot error on my part. BTW, how do you like
the MS-2? Considering getting a 9.5 to complement my 8.5 GTX.   thx,

The original footage had a lot of wind noise so I left it out.  The final
video did have music, so you should have heard at least that.  I really like
the MS2 9.5.  The whole rig is really light and powerful.  The sail has
excellent range with the use of the adjustable outhaul.  The low end power
is awesome.  This is my first cammed sail, and I really like the cams in a
big sail.  I just wish I could afford a carbon boom.
