    The big head flicks thro' without any issues even tho we have only sailed in our light winter breezes .... The new headsail with the square top has given us a bit of grief but small mod being done and all should be good. None of her original sails remain, at least as sails, Peter is going to make gear bags of of the old headsails.
  4. Sorry, had to go and do some work but here is Youtube link to the last race and all the others are there on LHS https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B-yYYcqr36E
  5. all good, found replays on Youtube,
  6. Did anyone record these races please the only way I have got to watch them so far is thro the links here ....... am at sea. Thanks and sounds like great result.
  7. Easiest way ..... send youngest up to the top, he can just reach everything if he stands on the spreaders
  8. Enjoy the trip up there, scares the be-jesus out of me. My youngest has been up the top on mine a couple of times and the boat just sat still, but he is a tad on the light side. Have a pic somewhere of him up the top.
  9. They are interesting boats and usually good sailors I have some photos somewhere of about 6 of them sailing together ...... quick and seaworthy little boats and I hope that the Border guys treat them as "rescued seaman" and not illegals.

    Hi Smitty, The top was measured so that the whip is still longer than the head ...... it should all clear, so far no issues, but that was the first time the sail had been up as we had feeder issues and the sail jamming.
