What's up Owen?
OMG! Did you see that cart going faster than the wind dead downwind?
Yes Owen. Amazing, isn't it?
Sure is Granddad. How does it do that?
I don't know Owen. I'm hoping one of the many smart readers of my blog will explain it to us.
OMG! I thought you knew everything Granddad?
Not quite everything Owen.
And another thing Granddad. What's the right acronym for this kind of sailing? I see the video in your post calls it DDFTTW. But I see that some people call it DDWFTTW. Which is right?
I don't know Owen.
OMG! Something else you don't know Granddad.
Owen, why do you keep saying "OMG"?
I don't know Granddad. I think I saw people using it on Facebook. What does it mean?
I'll explain it when you're a bit older Owen.
OK Granddad. I think I'll go to bed now.
OK Owen. Sleep tight.
