So a few months ago we had Ullman Sails build us a kite for the world famous Anarchy. It wasn’t quite right and after a couple re-cuts, it was better, but still not fast. Ullman’s Erik Shampain said they have a new design and they’d make us a new one. Keith Magnussen brought it for the New Year’s Day Race, and it was fast right out of the bag. We rounded the weather mark 4th out of 5 Tigers and by the leeward mark, were just two boat lengths out of the lead. Kudos to Ullman for making a great effort to recognize their mistake and correct it with something much improved. Pic thanks to Da-Woody – check out the NYD pics right here.
