Re: Pearons 28 passes Beneteau 46

Re: Pearons 28 passes Beneteau 46

Re: Pearons 28 passes Beneteau 46

When the trim of my sails is criticized, I like to keep an open mind, as I know that after 45 years of sailing, there remains much I don't know. I mostly sail alone and fairly constantly trim my...
