We have a little something for the sailors today — specifically, competitive racing at its best and worst.

Tony Langley is a British billionaire businessman and the owner and skipper of the Transpac 52 Gladiator. As seen in this practice run, he proves to be as adept at the helm as he is in the board room.

The “Jaws” music, of course, was added, but the woman’s scream as Gladiator heads straight for a boat setting marks seems to be real, perhaps from Langley’s daughter, Charlotte, who filmed the scene.

We don’t know anything about the second clip, other than racing in close quarters can have its hazards.
