Re: Crewed for the first time yesterday - wow!
Yeah stick with this crew if you can! Spinnaker runs on the Cat 22 are a riot... the spin is small enough that even in a decent blow you can just muscle it... and under the right conditions you might be able to get the little boat to surf!
NOTHING cooler than watching a 22 foot SAILBOAT kick up a 3 foot wake! Although it's a bit intimidating when you see the roller is higher than the stern of the boat!
Congratulations, or is it condolences? You are now hooked on racing. Sounds like you've discovered why they call some of these small boats "pain boxes." It took a bit of googling for me to figure out that reference, but once I did I loved the Sci Fi diversion to one of my favorite movies.
