Hardly doing anything? I was actually very busy praying for our lives!
I agree it seems like an eternity in the slo-mo between coming to the realization that I'd screwed the pooch and when I start doing anything again after we exited upright. I was so surprised to not be swimming that it took me a beat to come to my senses and get busy again.
By way of monday-morning quarterbacking, if you watch the full-speed version of the whole run the mistake was made in turning the boat to T-up too early into waves that were really inconsequential in comparison. In doing that I lost all of the right to left momentum I had worked to build up and just couldn't get it back when I turned it sideways again. Then, a bit of panic set in...
Not my finest moment on the oars, but it does make for an entertaining watch!
