Sunday was a nice day for sailing and as we weren’t racing, we thought we’d just let the boats race themselves instead. Normally scheduled in the club’s calendar for the Vane steered ‘A’ boats, which had been cancelled, some thought it would be an ideal opportunity to test the latest design on the block from John Taylor, a 3D printed hull with help from Damian, using Bob J. as volunteer Skipper and proud new owner.
The ability to fully social distance with only a couple of boats racing at a time and a mate to pole off on the far bank to prevent them crashing, makes this look very acceptable. Four boats in total to sail in pairs at allotted times, gave us all three ups and three downs.
Remix, the prototype hull sailed by Bob, only dropped a beat all morning, proving a very worthy contender for future events.
