tack hammer

Recommended Posts

i've sailed on something that appeared to have a similar concept (maybe?) in perth a few years ago. It was not as nicely executed, but had a cat type bow blending into a mono stern. There was a detailed article on it in the aussie sailing mag, would have been about 2005/2006?

Went OK for what it was, especially upwind.

just putting twin rudders on her. when going to windward we sail with a bit of heel and center rudder lifts out so have to ease main a little boat still tracks straight just helm goes lighter than normal.Shes a work in progress, normal for me.

sailed a couple of weeks ago in Bucks rum race with my boy to try out twin rudders, not sure? seem a little dragy.

any ideas?

Not much breeze for us to get going at the start but increased on the flat off for a good beat to southern leading.

My boy pulled the jib hallard cleat off the mast in the beginning of the beat then smashed port dagger board just before finish on reach in.

Busy making stronger daggers and probably go back to central rudder.
