Very impressive, I've never managed to get the boat as near the vertical as that!  Respect for the crew as would appear is underwater with helm standing on shoulders, unless catapulted out of boat altogether

Funny that, I was going to say Dobbo as the kite and hull colour give it away. Reminds me of Abersoch in 1998 (I think).

Good advert for the mast manufacturer - if it doesn't giveway under that load it must be a good one!

Reminds me of a winter sail at Foremark with a (then) young Andrew Dalby.  Sadly no photographic evidence exists.  Maybe I helped influence his later style...
