@Danny: You know I must have watched this video hundreds of times, but I watched it again with your emphasis, and I realise I never noticed the head and neck details before. As you say, he is in perfect head and neck alignment. It seems to me that he is not a particularly high floater. Not a sinker like me, by any means, but his aligned head is more than half underwater, so he has to turn to more than just the sideways position, i.e. 90 degrees to get his mouth to enough air when finessed exactly at the trough of the bow wave. As you say ,this is achieved by good neck rotation with respect to the rotated shoulder girdle, but this is particularly facilitated by very good axial alignment of the head and neck.
