Video on board Leopard

Early sea trial for Mike Slade's new giant
Mike Slade's new 100ft long Farr designed supermaxi Leopard 3 has been sea trialling this week in the Solent. Thedailysail was fortunate enough to be invited on board this week. Our full account of this amazing boat will appear on thedailysail next week, but here is a video taster of what it was like on board. Remember this was a very early test sail in relatively big breeze. Particularly check out the push button opeated hydraulically driven daggerboards... Click here to see this video. NB: This video is formatted to play in Windows Media Player and is LARGE in size - therefore only suitable for those with broadband connections. Mac users can now view WMV files by downloading a suitable add on to Quicktime - we for example use Flip4Mac which works a treat. The only noticable difference is that while the clip will play out while downloading on a PC in Internet Explorer, on a Mac it must download first.
