Re: '81 Spirit 23 in Charlotte, NC

Your system is very slick WindyWay but I do have a question for how you prevent the mast from swinging side to side as it comes up? In any case, there is certainly more than one way to skin a cat and while mine is not optimal it gets the job done safely. I would like to do something similar to yours but it's a case of picking and choosing my efforts at this point...

Anyway, here are some pics of the day.

Preparing to dunk it.



Was under just the main for a while but went up to put a head sail on.



Close-hauled (ignore the dirty sails)



Headed back I got the wing on wing going



A good day.
