Paul Butler has now launched his F-32AX 'Wardance' at Christchurch, England, and writes:
Just a line to let you know that, after a 4 1/2 year build, we have just launched ‘Wardance’. She weighed in at 1869kg including all the diesel systems [Cooker, heating and pressurized hot water], upholstery, sails, cooking utensils, safety gear and sailing gear.
We spent the weekend tinkering about and have just made our first cruise. It felt like a gentle cruise to windward until that we realized that we had covered 10 miles upwind in an hour! Everything works perfectly and we have had many compliments so far.
