Having sailed at the 20knt mark which is also pretty scary, 65knts is going to be horrifying.

It may not seem fast, but it IS ! if he nosed in at that speed he'd be dead as a brick.


A worthy accolade to go for..........far better than a lawn mower on Pendyn

Finally got the control lines spliced, main hoisted and checked, and the spinnaker system checked this morning.

Just add the crew and we are good to go !

What the photo does not show, is just how massive this dinghy is, the hull is 16ft long (minus the spinnaker pole)

The spinnaker is 40 square meters.


This thing is going to be lethal :D
