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.
