You nailed it Charlie. We pretty much sat on 6.5 - 7.5 all day. Did see 10.5 for a short while but that was after we were off the wind.

Ref the jib...we partially destroyed our number one last year and used the number two while it was being repaired. For some reason she sails a lot better with the number two so we have stayed with it.

No cunningham on main. Need to address that when main goes in for some repairs this month.

tdw It was, as I said, a cracker of a sail. For the proverbial 4knt SB she was really honking that day. I was really proud of her.

To give credit where credit is due, I've learnt a lot from Alex's videos and am finally starting to sail her to her full potential.

She'll never be a light wind flyer but in 15 - 20 knot breezes she is right in her element.

He can't be going that fast...he hasn't panned to the knotmeter to show the speed like our resident Portagee does.


Thanks for that... it's tough when the boats are buried under two feet of snow and the harbors are frozen nearly solid.
