Mid Atlantic Small Craft Festival 2011

While cooler and rainier than last year, at least we had strong wind! The Kruger Seawind with it's Balogh Sail Designs Sail and Folbot outrigger system spent almost all of Saturday on the water in 10-20 knots of wind. Everything performed well, including the reefing system. Hint: when going down wind and coming over the tops of waves if your bow is far enough into the air that the amas are losing touch with the water you should have reefed long ago. It was exhilarating!

The balogh sail attracted a lot of interest - many had heard of them, but never seen them.
