Sailing from the Exumas to Nassau

Anchored off Nevis. Leeward Islands

December 17, 1998

Though I've only owned her for a few months, I'm quite impressed with the boat (and I've been sailing 35 years). She balances like a dream, sails well in a blow, and turns a surprising bit of speed in light airs if you hoist a cruising spinnaker.

I'd like to add a mizzen staysail eventually. And, I'm trying to figure out a way to get access to that damn bilge! The cabin sole's design is interesting but is the worst feature of the boat. There should be decent bilge access.
