Re: 2013 Sailing Season

My grass skirt was waving at nearby boats. I kept full sail up (even past 20kts) to see how she handled it.
Dropped a few items off the settee here and there, but pretty stiff at 20 degrees.

The full jib caused a touch too much weather helm - lift made her constantly try to point up, so much than in a real puff Resolute_ZS had full rudder on to keep her from rounding up. I should have bled off some, but I wanted to see what it would do and was having too much of a lazy sail to do the trim in/trim out deal in fluky wind.

It won't take too long for me to loose all my bad catamaran sailing habits and get back to mono hull.

Lessons learned are opportunities earned.
