Re use it or lose it


This clunky tanker was thrown together very quickly. A low centre of gravity with mid mounted foam raising the deck. A bucket sail combination with a cylindrical mainsail and a side mounted directional sail on the bow. An additional flat sail was added to the main sail to pull this lug through the water. She sailed surprisingly well, albeit to an onshore breeze that meant launching her into the chop of the point, that was handled admirably and a short sail back to shore. And no it didn’t sail backwards.
