Norfolk Broads, 1980. Major the border terrier is helping. Only now do I appreciate what a great boat that gunter rig dinghy was. Took seconds to get the mast and the sail up. The centre of effort of the sail is very low so the boat is very stable in a puff. No jib to worry about. In a puff you just leaned back, pulled on the sheet, and it would take off like a rocket.
Bristol 31.1, San Francisco Bay
