It turned into an apparent wind 28 at times. A really good shake down sail (not a break down). I'm happy to say my me and my Irwin 38 CC will be having a good summer.
Sorry I didn't take pictures. I will next time for you. She is looking good Chuck and will serve you well. Especially in wind like yesterday. Verty comfortable ride. Ill bet you amazed at the difference the weight ( power feeling of the hull) is making as you cruise in heavy winds vs. skipping across the water.

We were hauling the main pretty well headed up to the Patapso from the bridge doing well in excess of 7 knots with just little handkerchief of a 120 as the headsail and the centerboard down.

I think next weekend its time to go back to "Big Bertha" the 150. The diver should be going under Haleakula this week so that's usually good for at least 1/2 knott.
