Found to be a tough little boat, ballast ratio of 45% makes her very stiff and able to carry her full sail in a good strong breeze. All can be controlled from the cockpit, as both head sails have roller furling gear and all halyards are lead back to the cockpit. The main sail has reefing points.
She is now ashore for the Winter. Viewing possible at anytime.
