H20 gets her new gennaker

Category : Design/Build , Testing


This weekend was the first opportunity to try out the brand new gennaker from Doyle Sails Tauranga. The cut was really nice and suited the lighter air at the start of our second race. We didn’t win the race, far from it, but we did learn a lot about the set-up of the boat, what worked and what didn’t. I have a list of things to change, or modify already.  I’m pretty certain these little mods will make a big difference making boat handling a little easier and allowing for better boat trim, reducing drag and increasing speed and stability at the same time.
