mamas, don’t let your babies…
…grow up to sail AC shitters!
From Anarchist Pablo: Not long ago, I went out with an old AC boat to get some sorted electronic and rigging stuff, as I was the skipper that time, got all the "optis" kids that where sailing around the area to come onboard and try sailing the AC in 7 knots of true wind.
The kids did great helming, and trimming, got a bit tired of grinding the boat upwind, but 8 kids all connected and turning the wheel for the main got it sorted in time for the up building wind, up to 15 knots in Valencia.
Hope they realize that an AC boat like this is just a waste of space, and they can skip of the traditional sailing culture over Spain and go skiffing soon.
