Sea Trials Video

August 12, 2014 at 12:16 pm

I had a request on Facebook for more videos of Duet under sail, so I’ve put this together (after having initially rejected it for wobbliness and poor sound quality and lots of wind noise)

What do you think?

This was our second time out, in company with fellow Hurley 22 ‘Natasha’ and under genoa only (I hadn’t rigged the reefing lines yet and in this wind she would have needed a reef). Gorgeous day for a sail :-)

I’ll keep trying with the video, and now I’ve done some miles and had some practice balancing the sails (here’s my log!) and I’m hoping to soon have some bungee self steering rigged which will free me from the tiller and I’ll be able to shoot more video and take more pictures…
