    Light wind drifter sail

    I tack the spinnaker to a block on each bow which is why I guess another block behind the roller furling would be needed. I have only seen screechers set on a bowsprit on a cat?

    Light wind drifter sail

    If I have a dyneema luff cable does that mean I don't need the sythetic solent stay? I would need a deck attachement point behind the roller furling and just use the spinnaker halyard? Trying to avoid using the iron genoa

    Light wind drifter sail

    Would like a light wind sail. At the moment we have a large Genoa and a symmetrical spinnaker. Watching the latest Atticus video they have fitted a removable synthetic Solent stay which they can use with a smaller headsail and a lightweight Drifter sail. This to me looks like a very good idea and was wondering if it would work on our cat. Another advantage is a spare emergency stay! Atticus YouTube video Another point that I liked was that the Drifter was fitted to the stay by a continuous luff zip which looked very easy to set. Anyone used one of these or have any thoughts ?

    Best grippy shoes

    Brought some Adidas boat shoes and very pleased with them. Very grippy but not tried in the wet yet.

    Switch to Aluminum Anode?

    I was advised when changing my saildrive anodes to Ali to make sure all underwater anodes were also aluminium.

    Struggling with low speed manouvering and docking

    We fitted a bow thruster to a 27' cat that had a single Yam 9.9 that did not steer. Made all the difference but still struggled a bit with strong cross winds but you knew one way or another your had options to get to the berth even if not totally dignified!

    SailGP 2019

    We went to Cowes on Sunday and loved it. Great atmosphere, well organised and exciting build-up and racing. We sail a crusing catamaran but do not and don't want to race. We have sailed to Cowes when the racing is on and there is a buzz about the place but apart from the Fastnet have never watched or wanted to watch any other racing. SailGP was different and can't wait for next years racing
