Re: Walker Bay Dinghy

actually, wb8 rows well ..in up to 17 measured knots of wind and seas to 1 ft.
after that, it goes sideways and not fun to try to control. btdt.....la cruz de huanacaxtle and their nonanchorage anchorage is not the place to test it, but is as good a place as any....upwards of 15 kts with any kind of seas, was most difficult to manage wb8--actually took me 30 mins to row 10 ft in those conditions.
