Our friend Boyd Tomkies, from Compete
At Sailing sent us this brief report from sailing on the new Farr
After months of waiting, today was D-day for the new Farr 11,“Stray
Dog”. It was a typical day on the Chesapeake, 3-4kt’s, gusting
to 5-6kt’s. Not quite the ideal sailing conditions, but no one cared,
we had a new boat ready for her maiden sail.
the blind leading the blind and a stack of 8.5 x11’s from the Farr
office with cant angles, VPP predictions and polars, we hoisted sails
to see what she would do..
