killarney_sailor is on a distinguished road
I suspect that the boat may have the trysail because the first owner did at least one Newport-Bermuda race and also sailed to the Med (back in the days when cruiser-racer meant you could actually do both). I could tie off the boom - would have to see how best to run the sheets to the aft quarters. Can't do that until we are back in Oz in another 5 weeks or so.

Do you run your sheets to turning blocks and then to the primary winches? I don't have convenient eyes for doing that I think.
