Re: [bolger] Re: Posted construction photos of original Whalewatcher
Late April 2009, even with tired Phil at the helm of Utilis, we steadily walked away in light airs from a much larger production type dripping with the usual 'must-have' package of yachty 'performance' gadgets...just after we slid past a flock of smaller keel-boat daysailers, then compelled to set their Spinnakers...
We speculated about a running top-mast with topsail for light-air boost.

Ooooh! I plan to be racing at the WOOD regatta, as well - I can't wait to see your boat in person! I'd love to get a ride, too, if you are planning on taking folks out for a spin . . . .
