FYS Comments

Good fun, small sailing boat, equally at home club racing, family weekending, creek crawling or day sailing. Very close winded and easy to sail short handed with the small headsail and can even be sailed with the keel up, in the right conditions.

"Loafing" was supplied by us new, she is now ready for a new adventure!
