We tested Button Swan’s mainsail on Saturday, and considered it a great success! We did some temporary fastening, tying the sail to our spars, and rigging some control lines. The sail shape worked perfectly, and the boat was fast enough to pull away from Ragna quite easily most of the time – we’re very pleased with her performance! This was in a nice light wind, perfect for a first sail.
With Ragna giving chase, we got some video of her underway. Ragna was able to pull away on one leg, but after a bit more tuning, Button Swan took off again.
This boat is continuing to satisfy and delight us!
