Thursday PM two buddies and I took the PM off to sail. Air temp 50 deg. F, wind Westerly at 15-20 Kts. Gusts to 25. Had a blast in the cold dry (dense) air. 7.2 Kts upwind on the beat and 8.0 on a close reach. For desert, 8.2 Kts downwind wing on wing. This on my new Harbor 25. I love the boat and the self tacking jib on a Hoyt boom is brilliant. We outfooted and outpointed larger boats easily. This boat looks tradional from the waterline up but below .. race boat. Oh, and the kevlar sails helped
Thanks to Tom Schock and his crew. I bought the boat sight unseen. It worked out perfectly. The perfect (for me) day-sailer.
