This video was taken by a friend who was sailing a Weta 4.4 Trimaran in a shifty 14-17 knots, slight waves. https://youtu.be/_m9KcZSwKL8
He is approaching the windward mark on the starboard lay line and in the zone (the Weta is 5.5 metres long including the fixed bowsprit).
A 29er approaching on port tacks in front of him so he has to alter course and then after rounding the mark, instead of bearing away, the 29er luffs up breaking the bowsprit of the Weta.
