I love sailing in Japan and love sports boats. You really have to see it to believe it. OK, I know this is not the sexy Sydney to Hobart millions dollar type video clip but this IS real sailing. This Thompson T8sc Sports boat is too short to be allowed to race the 5,500 Melbourne to Osaka Cup but if it were allowed I bet it would have a go. This is adventure and this is the stuff real sailors dreams are made of. I know it sloppy stuff but the very first time I saw this video it was an emotional event. You are going to need 8 minute and 54 seconds to watch it all but if you don’t watch it till the end it means nothing.
Just watch as this little 26 foot Thompson sail boat design sports boat takes on the 40 and 50 feet racers in this video. Right from the start until the very end she never gives up. Not sure who these boys are however my congratulations go out them and as far as the boat goes, well Thomo what can we say. Fantastic.
