David Culp came by in his ComPac 16 during my May 3, 2006 class on Lake LBJ. With the full batten main and new foil rudder it's the fastest ComPac 16 I've seen. I took this on the first day of one of my classes, with a neophyte at the helm of my Flying Scot I was trying to oversee him and take videos at the same time, on a pretty windy day. It was 10-15 mph wind, and that's about all that was on the sound track, wind noise, so I made this a silent video.
You need the Flash plugin which you probably have, click the play button to start the video. Slow on dialup!

This video was taken with the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ2. A $200 camera designed mainly for still photography, it will take a 30 minute video with sound if you have the 1 Gig memory card. The built in microphone is not extremely good, but it does work.
