Re: I had a great sail today.

That Martin was looking a bit better than last I saw it raced three or so years ago. It was red with a black stripe in the middle. The owner(at the time) went on a peace corps trip for two yrs, sold it, never got ALL of his money, came back, found it on the auction block, bought it back for $100. Not sure if he repainted it black, or if the previous owner had. Looked like she had some newer sails......pretty quick saturday. I was missing my 155 saturday, put it on sunday and beat it boat for boat. It seems rated slower than she is by 10-15 secs a mile IMHO. The owner does/did sailing class's, so could be the more expert vs the still learning. Saturday it was only my son and I, so tacks were a bit slow. but still had fun.
