Sailing late in the afternoon

April 1998: 14.2 Knots

The sails http://www.bartlettsails.com/
Only 6 sails on board which makes the boat very simple to handle.
All the sails were designed and are maintained by our very own local sailmaker, John Bartlett.

The Main Sail: This one is always up and there are no options to reduce the size. In theory a reef could be taken but this has never been done and would require additional equipment.

The Jib: This is a self tacking sail making the job of the crew very simple

The Genoa (Also called the drifter): This sail is almost never used. It is for sell and was only used twice in drifting conditions.

The Runner (Also called the big chute). A large spinnaker with plenty of sail area to make the boat fast downwind.

The Reacher (Also called the small chute). A smaller spinnaker to be used in reaching conditions
