pushing her hard

Here's a pic I wanted to share showing how well behaved these boats are.
Overpowered with 25 knots and 4 footers, we are close hauled after calling the tack a bit early.
Not wanting to slide into the committee boat we hardened everything up and held on. Not only did we clear the committee boat but we were able to get close to the pin. Not too shabby for a cruising boat.

That's very impressive, Steve. I was sailing on Wednesday on a Beneteau 393 heeled like that. Unfortunately, the wind was 15 kts and we were going sideways.

Steve,
Looks like its time for a reef although I know you were racing!
Nice shot!

Ahoy, thought that you would enjoy this photo aboard our 1987 34 ... at the time I believe we had the 2nd reef in place.

Re: pushing her hard

Not exactly a "lee rail awash" shot, but I still really like it...JUNO somewhere between Block Island and Newport in 15 to 18 kts...
