This is the new boat. Had too much trouble getting a regular crew so bought a single hander.
Rolling it what breeze there isn't (pumping as its other wise known)
I didn't touch the mark I can assure you, its bigger than it looks!
In light winds its either sit somewhere awkward or stand somewhat nervously.
Its best to stand on the foredeck down wind in the light stuff, suspiciously "pole dancing" to keep the speed up.
Starting, behind a 400, no watch so used the bleeping from the 400 to get the start time.
Almost enough wind to sit on the side...
At last some wind! How its supposed to look.
Note the dodgy looking cap, came loose in a capsize shortly before this was taken. Didn't get it back on very straight.
