Great Job! I have already watched it a couple of times.
That first day sailing looked to be very "interesting" !

Thank you John, great footage of the event. It is good to see that the boat goes well ( 9+ kts ) with a bit of a breeze.
Can't wait to get my boat into the water ...

Cheers,

Peter

Wow, that boat was flying!!
Really amazing to see her plowing along at that speed, for so long, also a little terrifying.

I agree with all these posts - and especially with Wayne's observation, who himself has also used a spinnaker on his own PS. Love the videos.

All the best,
Mark

Thanks guys! glad you all liked it. I heard about a boat on day one that kept up 5 knots with nothing but a mast up with no sail. It was really blowing. I saw a barge going the opposite direction with the spray from the wave going over the bow. It was a bit too far away to get some good video and I kinda had my hands full : )
