Chris Edmonds F-82 has now been launched in Nelson, New Zealand. Chris writes:
Launching day was stunning. Warm(ish) and 6 knots of breeze which was just perfect or the occasion. We went out and buzzed a few yachts sitting out in the bay hoping for wind. Main and screecher doubling as a Genoa and all went exceptionally well. Almost all systems working well - at least under those conditions.
Sunday (the next day) was different and included an exciting reach into the bay and back. Just enough to put a big smile on the helmsman's face before we froze in a hail storm at the dock.
