Beat to Weather

A little clip I shot of my Bay Hen beating to weather on Lake Ontario on our recent vacation.

The boat is not really optimised for upwind sailing, with no jib, gaff rig, but I thought she did okay.

Had a slight problem with throat halyard tension. This is a 4 hour beat compressed to 2 and a half minutes
