Re: '81 Spirit 23 in Charlotte, NC
Actually got to finally sail it yesterday! Was on a narrow lake simply because I wanted to avoid traffic for my first trip out but that also made for somewhat fluky winds. Overall, happy with how it sailed but the mainsail is definitely worn (original) so that will be an expense down the road. Didn't try to get the centerboard out, not sure how I will accomplish that but I'm happy enough without dropping the centerboard for now.
Was also happy that I was able to launch it without having to have an extension or anything difficult. I'll post pics at some point.
